Movie Mom

All reviews by MPAA Rating

(C) G-Force

Genre: Talking animals
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
Top voice talent and good 3D computer graphics cannot make up for the fact that this film is utterly synthetic as well as crass, loud, and vulgar. Even at a brief running time of under 90 minutes,...

(B+) Galaxy Quest

Genre: Science-Fiction
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Middle School
This is one of the funniest movies of the year, hilariously but affectionately skewering television sci-fi, its stars, and its fans. Not since William Shatner told Trekkers Dana Carvey and Jon Lovi...

(B-) The Game Plan

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
There is undeniable little girl appeal in this story of a big, selfish meanie of a quarterback who is tamed by the 8-year-old daughter he never knew he had. Some audiences will find it as sugary a...

(C-) Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
This is lowest common denominator movie-making. Why not, it's based on a lowest-common denominator comic strip.

Garfield's lighter-than-air comic strip is utterly generic because its motiv...

(B+) Glee Live! 3D

Genre: Musical
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Middle School
Gather up, Gleeks, "Raise Your Glass" and get ready for "Fireworks!"  The musical TV series about a high school show choir, now poised to move from hit to cult, continues its juggernaut from telev...

(B+) Glory Road

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
A man who coaches high school girls' basketball gets a job at a small Texas school and not only takes them to the nationals, where they defeat the long-time champions in a stunning upset, he change...

(C) Goal!

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
A soccer-mad friend sat beside me in the theater, leaning over from time to time to explain what was going on in the game on the screen or point out an in-joke about the appearance of a real-life f...

(B) The Great Buck Howard

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: High School
This story about a retro performer itself has a very retro feeling, as though it is a recently rediscovered artifact. The likable Colin Hanks plays Troy Gabel, who drops out of law school with som...

(B-) The Greening of Whitney Brown

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
A middle schooler who thinks she has it all figured out finds herself tossed from 1 percent-ville to 99-percent-land in a cute new film in limited release called "The Greening of Whitney Brown."  ...

(D) Gulliver's Travels

Genre: Remake
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
A cringe-inducing catastrophe with all of the appeal of fingernails on blackboard, this movie's first early warning sign should have been the omission of Jonathan Swift from the opening credits. <...
