Delgo (2008)

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

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

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

Sky High (2005)

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

Mr. Nanny (1993)
