3/4 35% Leap! (2017) The animated film requires some suspension of disbelief, but it mostly succeeds thanks to its Parisian setting and its heroine's charm.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2.5/4 92% Wonder Woman (2017) Gadot proves she is worthy of Wonder Woman's tiara, but the superhero deserves a great film, not one that's just better than the others.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 18% Baywatch (2017) Even a couple of explosive action scenes and key cameos can't do much to keep the film afloat.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 20% Diary Of A Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (2017) Most likely, Wimpy Kid fans will embrace the gross jokes. The rest of us can hope the inevitable next film is better. As if.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2.5/4 52% The Boss Baby (2017) For viewers of all ages who can overlook an over-the-top plot for a few good laughs, "The Boss Baby" is sure to entertain.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2.5/4 44% Rock Dog (2017) When there are so many sophisticated animated movies coming to the theaters, it's likely that "Rock Dog" may soon be forgotten.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 91% The Lego Batman Movie (2017) Michael Keaton and Christian Bale are the best. George Clooney and Ben Affleck are among the worst. But Will Arnett is by far the funniest.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2.5/4 73% Sing (2016) "Sing" is like a medley of pop hits. You get a bunch of quick samples but long for the full song.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3.5/4 96% Moana (2016) While Moana's story is rooted in the past, she's a modern heroine, a smart, resourceful leader who learns to find her own way.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 95% The Edge of Seventeen (2016) One of the pleasures of Edge of Seventeen is it makes you nostalgic for high school yet so relieved it's over.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 77% Bridget Jones's Baby (2016) There hasn't been a clamoring for another movie about Bridget Jones, but with this outing, she - and Zellweger - makes a welcome comeback.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 15% The Wild Life (2016) It's like the generic version of a Disney movie.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3.5/4 94% Life, Animated (2016) "Life, Animated" doesn't try to give a cure-all to autism. It shows how one family approached the complex puzzle with the help of Simba, Sebastian and Lumiere.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 58% Bad Moms (2016) For a summer escape, skip the book club this month and take your friends to the movies instead.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 74% The Secret Life of Pets (2016) Some of the best scenes show the filmmakers' affection for creatures of all kinds, especially their observations of human and pet behavior. One tip for owners: You may want to wash that Kitchen Aid mixer before you use it next.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 43% The Angry Birds Movie (2016) The movie is ultimately a 90-minute commercial with vivid colors and other cuddly game characters popping up along the way.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

1.5/4 6% Mother's Day (2016) These characters are so paper-thin it's surprising they even have names.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 87% The Peanuts Movie (2015) A welcome break from the noise of many kids flicks, Charlie Brown's trip to the big screen is set in a simpler time.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2.5/4 29% Burnt (2015) With such a strong cast, the film has the right ingredients but it doesn't quite make a perfect meal.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 83% Dior and I (2015) This undramatic and flat peek "inside" the sewing rooms of Christian Dior holds little in the way of entertainment.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 92% How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014) For audiences who want a sweet story, they can't beat the first film of a boy finding his best friend. For those who are ready for the next stage, try this one about a boy becoming a man.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 71% The Croods (2013) While their situation sounds dire, "The Croods" is not. The DreamWorks animated film has enough slapstick humor, furry sidekicks and zippy 3-D action sequences to keep the story light.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 74% Rise of the Guardians (2012) The Guardians make a winning team that is a prime candidate for a sequel, just like "The Avengers."‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 86% Wreck-it Ralph (2012) "Wreck-It Ralph" is a lot like video games and candy: light entertainment but fun while it lasts.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2.5/4 86% The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012) This pirate tale is a misguided adventure that doesn't fully set sail.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 54% Dr Seuss' The Lorax (2012) While the movie is funnier than the book, the drawback of this modernized version is that it loses the timeless quality of the story on the page.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 94% The Secret World of Arrietty (2012) "The Secret World of Arrietty" proves that imagination still matters amid all the clamor.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

3/4 92% Arthur Christmas (2011) "Arthur Christmas" stays sweet without becoming overly sentimental and is filled with sly details and smart action sequences.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 17% I Don't Know How She Does It (2011) Like its main character, "I Don't Know How She Does It" tries to do everything, but it doesn't quite succeed.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

1.5/4 60% Glee: The 3D Concert Movie (2011) Even die-hard fans will cover their ears in protest.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 22% The Smurfs (2011) 'The Smurfs" is a lot like the characters' theme song: sweet, repetitive and grating.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 15% Something Borrowed (2011) A predictable romantic comedy with cookie-cutter characters - the nerdy professional with a mean-girl best friend, both vying for a stoic lawyer who secretly wants to be a teacher.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch

2/4 37% Mars Needs Moms (2011) If Breathed's style could have been applied to the animation, this offbeat story would have a better chance at success. Instead, we're left with a kids' movie that leaves audiences cold.‐ St. Louis Post-Dispatch
