(D) MacGruber

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
A one-joke "Saturday Night Live" skit based on a television series that ended in 1992 has been turned into a no-joke movie that ended 99 painful minutes after it began. It is of interest only to p...

(B) Magic Mike

Genre: Romance
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
You might expect a movie about strippers to be either a glossy Hollywood fantasy or a gritty, sour, documentary.  The surprise of "Magic Mike" is that it avoids both extremes with an appealing nat...

(B+) The Men Who Stare At Goats

Genre: War
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
"More of this is true than you would believe," "The Men Who Stare at Goats" cheekily informs us as it opens. And while its tone is high satire, even farce, the story it tells is not hard to believ...

(C) Miami Vice

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: High School
The original "Miami Vice" was Michael Mann's decade-defining television show. It ran from 1984-89 and everything about it was fresh, edgy, and influential. The t-shirt under the Armani jacket wit...

(F) Miss March

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Adult
A smarmy premise becomes an unspeakably offensive movie in a mess that is not just disgusting but dull. I don't feel I need a bath after seeing it; I feel I need an exorcism. Remember the song "Ce...

MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade

(C) Mr. Brooks

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
I have to give this film credit for embracing its craziness. This is one movie that proudly raises its freak flag high and lets it wave. But that does not mean it works.

Mr. Brooks (Kevin...

The coming attraction makes it clear that "Mystery, Alaska" is your basic "Rocky" movie about a grown-up version of the Mighty Ducks -- a team from a small, hockey-worshipping Alaska town gets a ch...
