All reviews by MPAA Rating

(B+) Hairspray

Genre: Musical
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
I am not sure which is the more amusingly surprising -- the idea that one of the most painful struggles in American history could become the subject of a light musical comedy, or the idea that it c...

(B-) Happily Never After

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
As an Empress of Evil announces that she is in charge and from now on it will be "happily NEVER after," the film appears to jump off the sprockets of the projector and a narrator interrupts with an...

(A-) Happy Feet

Genre: Musical
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
It's official. The cutest thing on the planet is penguins singing "Boogie Wonderland." Especially if one of them is tap-dancing. This movie is a straight shot of sunshine. I defy anyone to watc...

(B-) Happy Feet 2

Genre: Talking animals
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
I loved the original Happy Feet, but five years later only liked this sequel.  It's still a lot of fun to s...

(B+) Hoodwinked Too: Hood vs. Evil

Genre: Series/Sequel
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades

(B) Hoot

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
Kids take on developers to protect endangered owls in this mildly pleasant story based on the award-winning book by Carl Hiaasen. Parents will admire some of the messages -- care for the environme...

(C-) Hop

Genre: Fantasy
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
“Hop” would more accurately be titled “Stumble,” a disappointing follow-up from the producers of one of last year’s best family films, “Despicable Me.” It is just another story of a h...

(B) Hotel Transylvania

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
What scared me most about "Hotel Transylvania" was the prospect of another film starring Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg.  Their last collaboration was "That's My Boy," by far the most excruciatin...

(B+) How To Eat Fried Worms

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade
