12% Delgo (2008) " Although the film may be too violent for kids younger than 10 and too storybook for teens, it is a tale of mythic pretensions and can be quite stunning." — Washington Post
Posted Dec 12, 2008
13% The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor (2008) " Tiresome and messy, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor borrows mightily from the Indiana Jones franchise and various martial-arts films, but it doesn't do what those films did nearly as well." — Washington Post
Posted Jul 31, 2008
0% Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004) " Apart from Jon Voight, slumming and turning in a rather droll, if lonely, performance as the German-accented villain, the movie amounts to cynical, cutesy claptrap." — Seattle Post-Intelligencer
Posted Mar 8, 2007
22% Barnyard (2006) " Kids 8 and older may laugh now and again at this ill-conceived animated comic fable about barnyard animals who party like frat boys when the farmer isn't looking, but it surely doesn't earn the laughs through good storytelling or beautiful animation." — Washington Post
Posted Aug 3, 2006
73% Sky High (2005) " Director Mike Mitchell deftly blends two genres -- the high school romance and the special-effects-laden superhero comic book adaptation -- and manages to spoof yet salute both with a refreshing lack of pretension." — Washington Post
Posted Jul 28, 2005
40% The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003) " A smug, cutesy music video/ fashion show for [Hilary] Duff." — Washington Post
Posted May 2, 2003

Posted Sep 20, 2002
63% The Powerpuff Girls - The Movie (2002) " For the first two-thirds of this sparklingly inventive and artful, always fast and furious tale, kids will go happily along for the ride." — Washington Post
Posted Jul 3, 2002
4/5 86% Lilo & Stitch (2002) " Fresh and rainbowy as a midday Hawaiian sun shower." — Washington Post
Posted Jun 21, 2002

44% Free Willy 3: The Rescue (1997) Washington Post
Posted Jan 22, 2002
4/5 54% Cats & Dogs (2001) " A surprisingly witty and sophisticated spy movie spoof that will tickle adult pet lovers and still capture kids 6 and older with its boy-and- his-dog love story and pet slapstick." — Washington Post
Posted Jan 6, 2002
3.5/5 29% Max Keeble's Big Move (2001) " A welcome slice of pie in the face." — Washington Post
Posted Oct 6, 2001
7% Mr. Nanny (1993) " In its cynical blending of children, superstar, guns and comedy, Kindergarten Cop was execrable, but it was slick. Mr. Nanny isn't slick, it's sticky." — Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
20% Jack Frost (1998) " Formulaic and charmless!" — Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
77% The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland (1999) " The direction of Gary Halvorson and screenplay by Mitchell Kriegman and Joseph Mazzarino keep Elmo's adventures sparkling." — Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
35% Undercover Blues (1993) " The script by Ian Abrams brims with overwritten cleverness." — Washington Post
Posted Jan 1, 2000
