All reviews by Grade

(D) Catwoman

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
"Catwoman" is kitty litter.

Awkward and clumsy as a cat in high heels, this version of the comic book character Catwoman does not have enough to sustain one life, much less nine.

Wri...

(D) The Cell

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
I think the idea here was to cross "Silence of the Lambs" with "The Matrix." It's a story about a serial killer, now in some sort of irreversible catatonia. How can the police find where he has h...

(D) Chill Factor

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This movie should come in a white box with a generic label -- it is all concept and explosions, with nothing worthwhile in its plot, character, or dialogue.

The concept is this: a scientist...

(D) Christmas with the Kranks

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
This meretricious claptrap is exactly the kind of baloney it purports to be saving us from.

There's a reliable genre of family holiday movie that is made up of three-fourths slapstick follow...

(D) Cold Creek Manor

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
If it was just that it was dumb, really, I would not be so annoyed with "Cold Creek Manor." After all, most "don't go into the house"-style thrillers have their dumb plot contrivances, like "Anyon...

(D) College Road Trip

Genre:
MPAA Rating: G     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades

(D) Corky Romano

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This tired attempt at comedy has no imagination or energy. The script is like a smudgy carbon originally rejected by Jerry Lewis as too dumb and then reworked for Gilbert Gottfried. It isn't even ...

(D) Couples Retreat

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
I'm guessing that what happened here is that BFFs Jon Favreau (director of Iron Man but here as an actor), Vince Vaughn, and...

(D) Crazy, Stupid, Love

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This painful comedy about the agonies of love has some deftly observed moments and strong performances but its essential tawdriness overwhelms its efforts to be cuddly and life-affirming. Everyo...

(D) Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
You would think that a movie called "Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles" would just about make itself work. It starts with two strong assets: an engaging character already well known and fondly remem...

(D) Crossroads

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Here is the good news: Britney Spears is a better actress than Mariah Carey. Here is the bad news: the movie is not very good. Here is the worse news: it is not appropriate for the girls who shou...
