Posted Jun 4, 2010

Posted Sep 11, 2008
39% The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie (2008) " Pirates scores with adventure, humor and a morality tale rather than a standard biblical message. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 11, 2008
13% September Dawn (2007) " [The film] too often feels like a very elaborate episode of Gunsmoke. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 24, 2007
70% Black Sheep (2006) " A giddily subversive addition to the age-old cinema tradition of the horror comedy. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 21, 2007
43% In the Land of Women (2007) " With an age-old cinema theme of a young man's maturation, it also needs to land female ticket-buyers but seems a lot like something women could find at home on the WE channel. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 19, 2007

Posted Feb 14, 2007

Posted Feb 8, 2007
22% Barnyard (2006) " While youngsters might enjoy the movie, more discerning tweens, teens and adults will not be as easily amused, and boxoffice prospects look modest, albeit followed by a long DVD shelf life. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter

Posted Sep 16, 2005
No Score Yet Meet the Family (2005) " The no-name cast is barely adequate: They declare lines with all the nuance of old, rapid-fire Laugh-In one-liners, dumbed down with sexual innuendo. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 28, 2005
13% Rebound (2005) " Predictable yet passably entertaining. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 30, 2005
61% Swimming Upstream (2004) " Good as Rush and Davis are as combative working-class parents Harold and Dora, their story line overpowers the drippy dramatics of their teen athlete son. It unwittingly feels like two separate movies. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 5, 2005
59% Enduring Love (2004) " Craig, in his meatiest film role to date, delivers his usual incisive performance, even if this intimate drama of contemporary Londoners pushes the boundaries of credibility. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 13, 2004

Posted Sep 24, 2004
0% National Lampoon's Gold Diggers (2004) " This cheap-looking, broad and ultimately unnecessary comedy makes John Landis' benchmark Animal House -- one of the earliest films to bear the National Lampoon brand name -- look like Lubitsch. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 17, 2004
12% Catch That Kid (2004) " Remake of Danish family film is mainly fun for the young. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 5, 2004
17% The Perfect Score (2004) " The story is flimsy, and when the dialogue touches on controversial issues regarding the SAT and its fairness, the slacker tone turns abruptly melodramatic. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 29, 2004
57% Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003) " It will never be confused with the groundbreaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but when it comes to a zippy live-action-meets-animation kid flick with plenty of grown-up gags, Looney Tunes: Back in Action does not disappoint. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 11, 2003
0% Controlled Chaos (2007) " It's hard to tell whether film school grad Zendel thought she was crafting a new-millennium Sunset Boulevard, but what results is more like the cultish morass of Showgirls in its camp dramatization of a poisonous entertainment milieu. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 5, 2003
14% The Young Unknowns (2000) " A curious exercise in the vein of David Rabe's Hurlyburly that needed greater dramatic heft than is exhibited by the industry lightweights it depicts. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 15, 2003
71% Piglet's Big Movie (2003) " Fiedler brings his trademark high-pitched squeal to the beloved, childlike Piglet. The other voice actors are just as good, with each one providing great heart and verve for their respective characters. " ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 24, 2003
