(D) Abandon

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Given the talent involved, it really is almost impressive how bad "Abandon" is.

The movie is written by Stephen Gaghan, who last won an Oscar for "Traffic" and here makes his directing debut...

(D) Adam Sandler's Eight Crazy Nights

MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
"8 Crazy Nights" is a bit of an enigma. In the Venn diagram of movie goers, Adam Sandler fans are not an easy overlap with those who cherish holiday musicals. This lame attempt at comedy is more li...

(D) Alexander

Genre: Epic/Historical
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Alexander the person was great. "Alexander" the movie is not.

It is a horrendously bad movie, a genuine 40-car pile-up of literally epic proportions, a three-way head-on collision of bad wr...

(D) All About Steve

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Somewhere deep inside this movie, like the little tiny pea in the bed of the princess, is an idea that could have been an interesting movie. Unfortunately, as with that bed of the princess, it is ...

(D) All About the Benjamins

MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(D) All I Wanna Do

MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
An appealing cast of talented performers and some mild good intentions cannot save this uneven and sour comedy (originally released with the title "Strike!") about a girls' boarding school that is ...

(D) Alone in the Dark

Genre: Science-Fiction
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
There's something far scarier about this movie than its CGI monsters, whose lack of any apparent weight makes them seem as threatening as the floating Clifford balloon in the Macy's parade. What's...

(D) America's Sweethearts

MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
It sounds like it can't miss -- a delicious situation created by a guy who knows how to write jokes, with an all-star cast. But it does miss. Billy Crystal, who wrote the script with Peter Tolan,...

(D) Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me

Genre: Spies
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This movie is only slightly behind "Phantom Menace" in anticipation and excitement among kids, but parents need to know that it is very, very, very raunchy, with incessant and prolonged sexual humo...
