(C) Made of Honor

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
"Made of Honor" has gloss and bounce and some of the core elements of a mainstream chick flick/date movie. Sexiest Man Alive runner-up in lead role? Yep, Dr. McDreamy himself. I've been a Patric...

(C) Man of the Year

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School

(C) Mr. Brooks

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler

Mr. Brooks (Kevin...
