MPAA Rating: PG-13     Audience: High School
Carrey-ologists will enjoy poring over the semiotics of "Yes Man," in one sense a very slight variation of one of Jim Carrey's biggest hits, 1997's » Read Review

(C) Yogi Bear

(C) You Got Served

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: Middle School
This would be mindless but enjoyably cheesy cinema fluff if it did not cross the line into the category of the unforgivable by using the murder of a child as a plot contrivance. That is a complete...

(C) You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger

Genre: Romance

(C+) Yours, Mine & Ours

Genre:
MPAA Rating:     Audience: 4th - 6th Grades
This one is straight off the sit-com conveyer belt, all pratfalls and spit-takes. What little gloss it gets from star power is buried under forced humor about a pet pig (The pig swallows a cell ph...
