(B) The Family Stone

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
If you believe the previews or have seen the poster of an aggressively extended and bejeweled ring finger, then you might presume that “The Family Stone” is going to be a light-hearted romp of ...

(C) Fanboys

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(C) Fast & Furious

Genre: Series/Sequel
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
How fast? How furious? Well, this fourth in the series is so zippy it doesn't even have time for "the" or "and." And how necessary? Is there any more fastness or furiousness not fully covered b...

(F+) Fast Track

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(D) Fighting

Genre: Sports
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Terrence Howard's performance in "Fighting" is so bizarrely strange and awful that it occurred to me he might be hoping we didn't realize it was him. Howard plays Harvey, a street hustler who disc...

(B-) Fired Up

Genre: Gross-out
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Yes, this is a dumb little teen sex comedy that repeatedly tries to generate hilarity with a cheer involving the initials of its title. Yes, it spends a lot of camera time focusing on tight little...

(B-) Firewall

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School

(C+) Flyboys

Genre: War
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Has this script been in a drawer somewhere since 1942?

(C-) Four Christmases

Genre: Romance
