(B-) Daddy Day Care

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Kindergarten - 3rd Grade

(B) Dan in Real Life

(B) Danny Deckchair

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
We get one of these every few months whether we need one or not, so "Danny Deckchair" is this season's quirky-characters-with-accents comedy. Unlike its main character, it never quite achives lift...

(B) Daredevil

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
This may be another Marvel comic superhero movie rated PG-13, but it is a much darker story than "Spiderman," and parents whose 8 and 9 or even 13-year-olds loved that movie should think carefully ...

(B-) The Darjeeling Limited

Genre:

(B) Dark Blue

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler

(C+) Dark Water

Genre:

(F+) Darkness Falls

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Mature High Schooler
There is almost nothing positive to say about “Darkness Falls,” the new slapped-together horror movie hitting theaters. It’s filmed so poorly that it is almost impossible to see. The editing ...

(C+) The Day After Tomorrow

(B) The Debt

Genre: War
MPAA Rating: R     Audience: Mature High Schooler
Stories are linear.  Part of what gives them their power is that we jettison the details that are distracting or unimportant.  But real life is messy.  That may not be as compelling, but is hone...
