4/4 96% Back to the Future (1985) "Back to the Future" is the best comic-strip movie I've seen this year. It's well-made, lighthearted and is exactly the right length to give you excitement and laughs and a few surprises, and then it's over, leaving you feeling good. - Newsday EDIT

70% Freaky Friday (1976) The movie manages to make the personality switch mildly effective. And the actresses are so accomplished that it's a pleasure to watch them going through fairly predictable material. - Gannett News Service EDIT

2/4 89% The Breakfast Club (1985) Nothing really changes. You hear nothing you haven't heard before. But you know that for them it is happening for the first time, and they deserve compassion. I'm not sure that's a good enough reason to see "The Breakfast Club." - Newsday EDIT
