(D) Alexander

Genre: Epic/Historical
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Alexander the person was great. "Alexander" the movie is not.

It is a horrendously bad movie, a genuine 40-car pile-up of literally epic proportions, a three-way head-on collision of bad wr...

"All About the Benjamins" is to Ice Cube what "Crossroads" is to Britney Spears, a vanity vehicle designed by a star who has very little sense of how people like the characters in the movie (or the...

(D) Alone in the Dark

Genre: Science-Fiction
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
There's something far scarier about this movie than its CGI monsters, whose lack of any apparent weight makes them seem as threatening as the floating Clifford balloon in the Macy's parade. What's...

(D-) Along Came a Spider

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Morgan Freeman returns as Dr. Alex Cross in this prequel to "Kiss the Girls." Like the original, this movie has a nursery rhyme title and centers on a kidnapped girl. This time it is not a serial k...

(B) The American

Genre: Thriller
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(C+) American Pie 2

Genre:
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Teenagers will want to see this movie because it is raunchy and gross. But like the original, the gross and raunchy moments, though frequent, are less important than the movie's core sensibility, ...

(C) American Reunion

Genre: Series/Sequel
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
The first indication of a problem with this fourth in the series that began with the ground-breaking (and pastry-breaking) "American Pie" is that stars Jason Biggs and Seann William Scott are liste...

(C) The Amityville Horror

Genre: Horror
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(B+) Angel Eyes

Genre:

Genre: Western
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: High School
