(B-) The Da Vinci Code

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
A character in this movie's version of the Catholic organization Opus Dei explains that their mission is to follow doctrine very strictly. That was director Ron Howard's secular mission as well wi...

(B) Dan in Real Life

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
No one is better than Steve Carell at playing clenched. In "Dan in Real Life," he plays a character so clenched he just about levitates off the ground. Dan is an advice columnist and a single paren...

(B+) The Dark Knight

Genre: Superhero
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
"Dark" is right. Christopher Nolan's sequel to his Batman Begins is not only dark; it is searing and disturbing. The ba...

(B-) Dark Shadows

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
"Dark Shadows" tries to sink its teeth into the legendary 1960's supernatural soap opera with both ironic distance and visceral thrills.  It can be done -- see the original "Men in Black" -- but ...

(C) Date Movie

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
I counted references to 23 movies in this 80-minute film, not including Girls Gone Wild and "The Bachelor," or about one every three and a half minutes. Throw in a couple of songs and a dozen or s...

(B+) Date Night

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Putting Tina Fey and Steve Carell together seems so natural it's hard to believe that it took this long. Both are funny in part because they let us see how smart they are. The characters they pla...

(B) The Day the Earth Stood Still

(B-) Dear John

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
Nicholas Sparks writes the equivalent of comfort food, high-carb, low-nutrition, but sometimes it hits the spot. His stories usually feature relationships that are not just true and deep and lovin...

(B-) Definitely, Maybe

(B+) Deja Vu

A heart-pounding thriller with a time-travel twist, "Deja Vu" will not leave you thinking you've seen it all before.

(B+) The Devil and Daniel Johnston

Genre: Musical
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
It's not just that an interview with a rock star while he is in the dentist's chair having his teeth drilled is far from the weirdest thing in this movie. It's more that the whole story is so weir...

(B+) The Devil Wears Prada

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
It is just too bad Meryl Streep is so good at drama and suffering and accents and stuff like that because that means we don't get enough of a chance to see how brilliantly funny she is. Her under-...

(D) Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
I have seldom seen the stars of a movie look as thoroughly uncomfortable as Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant in this drearily low-concept would-be comedy, "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" Park...

(D) Dinner for Schmucks

Genre: Remake
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
The truest comedy is the laugh of recognition and enlightenment. You won't find much of that in this crass and crude remake of the French film, "The Dinner Game." What you will find instead is th...

(B+) Disturbia

This nicely nifty little thriller takes Hitchcock's classic » Read Review

(B-) Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story

Genre: Gross-out
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Think Bad News Bears crossed with Happy Gilmore. Except with dodgeball, which means many, many opportunities for humorous slams to the head, chest, and crotch. That pretty much sums it up.

(A-) Doubt

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Before movies, there were plays, and before plays there were stories told around the campfire. One of the deepest human impulses is the need to tell our stories in part because of the way they hel...

(A-) Dreamgirls

Genre: Musical
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
If my movie reviews had headlines, this one's would be: "A Star is Born." More like a Supernova. Jennifer Hudson explodes onto screen in this incendiary production of the Broadway musical inspire...

Genre:

Kiera Knightley plays 18th century aristocrat Georgiana, Duchess of Devonshire in this muddled but eye-filling saga of an ancestor of Diana, Princess of Wales, who shared her status as a fashion ic...

(B+) Duplicity

Genre: Spies
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
What do Egyptian launch codes and a new frozen pizza topping have in common? They're both secrets that are of value to both those who know it and those who want to know it. Where there are secr...
