(C) Lady in the Water

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
There is no conventional rating scale that could do justice to this film. It is a terrible movie, but it is terrible in an interesting and often highly watchable way. There have been better films...

(C) Land of the Lost

Genre: Remake
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
"Land of the Lost" features two funny actors and a criminally underused actress tramping around an alternate reality in search of comedy but not finding much for us to laugh at. Too raunchy for kid...

(B) Larry Crowne

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
"Larry Crowne" is such a perfectly pleasant movie that it may not be until you walk toward the exit that you realize that something is missing. Until then, the good spirits of stars Tom Hanks and J...

(B+) Legally Blonde

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
It's been too long since the last courtroom comedy. This one might not reach the heights of the sublime "My Cousin Vinny`" but it comes pretty close.

(C) License to Wed

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
The best thing about "License to Wed" is that John Krasinski and Mandy Moore have enough of that ever-elusive quality — chemistry — that an impending marriage seems possible if not likely. The...

(C-) Little Man

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

(B+) The Losers

Genre:

(F) The Love Guru

Genre: Gross-out
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Anyone old enough to see this movie is way too old to enjoy it. And having co-writer and star Mike Myers wink at the audience after some lame pun or potty joke doesn't up the hilarity factor. The...

(C-) Love Happens

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
Pay attention, class. Jennifer Aniston makes two kinds of movies. When she has her hair tied back, it's usually an independent film (like last summer's "Management") and usually worth watching. ...

(C) The Lovely Bones

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Peter Jackson, whose film versions of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy could be a textbook example of how to adapt a literary work for screen, could find his latest film, "The Lovely Bones" as the e...

(B) The Lucky One

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School

(C) Lucky You

Genre:
MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: Middle School
Maybe if it had been made in the 1940's or 50's in black and white, maybe if it starred Frank Sinatra and Lee Remick, maybe if we had never seen better films like "The Hustler," maybe this script m...
