2/4 49% Heaven Is for Real (2014) We might have expected more from writer-director Randall Wallace, who brought us the Oscar-nominated "Braveheart." But the material is pretty cookie-cutter and more typical of an afterschool special. - Associated Press EDIT

3/4 47% Rio 2 (2014) With so much going on, it's a wonder this kids' movie is only five minutes longer than the original. But for the music and brilliantly picturesque look, it's worth the 3-D ticket. - Associated Press EDIT

95% The LEGO Movie (2014) The filmmakers could have easily made one long, monotonous ad for the beloved brand that's been around for more than 55 years. Instead they've created a delightful tale championing self-reliance and distinctiveness. - Associated Press EDIT

2/4 22% That Awkward Moment (2014) Though ''Awkward Moment'' is predictable, it's not a complete disappointment. It's satisfying for a lover of formulaic rom-coms. - Associated Press EDIT

2.5/4 18% Ride Along (2014) Joining the ranks of odd-couple police comedies, ''Ride Along'' delivers laughs over action, with loudmouthed funnyman Kevin Hart driving the hilarity. - Associated Press EDIT

3.5/4 78% The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) Digging into deep-pocket gluttony, Martin Scorsese's dark comedy ''The Wolf of Wall Street'' highlights a world rich in drugs, fast cars and private jets. The American dream is amplified, yet those indulging in it are never satisfied. - Associated Press EDIT

2.5/4 92% Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) The film is a heavy downer and its consistent gray-hue enhances the bleakness. But the Coen brothers never fail to weave in bits of saucy irony, giving way for essential comical moments that bring everything full-circle. - Associated Press EDIT

2.5/4 90% Frozen (2013) The animation in ''Frozen'' is premium and the 3-D earmark adds to the pearly appeal of the ice and snow, but we are lacking in the sweeping romance we've grown accustomed to in a Disney princess movie. - Associated Press EDIT

90% Nebraska (2013) The performances are what truly accentuate this narrative. Forte carries off every complex quirk, while seasoned actor Dern is uncharacteristically subdued. - Associated Press EDIT
