Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review
1.5/4 8% The Reaping (2007) The Reaping isn't completely terrible. It just majorly overreaches. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 4, 2007
2/4 14% Wild Hogs (2007) Throughout the film, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence, et al don't seem to be bonding so much as acting at each other. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 1, 2007
2.5/4 43% Night at the Museum (2006) After a slow start, this feel-good family film is a nice postcard from the Big Apple that may benefit New York and the Museum of Natural History as much as it does 20th Century Fox. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Dec 20, 2006
2.5/4 72% Flushed Away (2006) Though Flushed Away certainly aims to please viewers of all ages, it's the anglophiles of all ages who are going to get the most out of the film. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Nov 3, 2006
2.5/4 48% De-Lovely (2004) The musical interludes, albeit entertaining, yank the viewer out of the early 20th century. Had the film stayed in its own time, it would have been more de-lovely. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jun 30, 2004
2/4 23% Raising Helen (2004) A mediocre film at best, but Hudson and the rest of the cast help raise the bar to make it a bit more palatable. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 28, 2004
2.5/4 55% The Girl Next Door (2004) With a more focused plotline, The Girl Next Door might have surpassed its genre. Still, as far as teen sex films go, this one scores. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 13, 2004
2/4 28% The Prince & Me (2004) . . . feels more practical than whimsical, more politically correct than sweep-you-off-your-feet romantic. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Apr 5, 2004
1/4 13% Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London (2004) Harmless fare, but as bland as an unsalted water cracker. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 16, 2004
1.5/4 46% Eurotrip (2003) The premise of the film is serviceable, but the execution is flawed and entirely underwhelming. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Feb 24, 2004
2.5/4 76% Teacher's Pet (2004) While Teacher's Pet lacks big-budget majesty, it has humor and heart. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jan 20, 2004
2/4 14% Gothika (2003) Deserves credit for embracing the ghost story genre so whole-heartedly, but as any ten-year-old girl can tell you, there's nothing original here to see. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Dec 2, 2003
2/4 62% Under the Tuscan Sun (2003) The clear and simple plot is bogged down by too many characters and too many clichés. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Oct 22, 2003
1.5/4 58% Girls Will Be Girls (2003) Even the acerbic wit slowly eats away at the story line until, at the end of the 82 minutes, there is little left but an acid-washed Lifetime movie. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Oct 22, 2003
1.5/4 12% Cold Creek Manor (2003) It is difficult to say anything about the plot without giving away the ending, simply because the ending is apparent within the first half hour of the movie. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Sep 19, 2003
2.5/4 42% The Fighting Temptations (2003) The cast is endearing, and despite a ridiculously contrived story line, the film plays like a happily toe-tapping song. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Sep 19, 2003
2/4 14% Uptown Girls (2003) While the movie hits on a bunch of emotional topics, the dialogue veers into the mawkish far more than necessary. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Aug 27, 2003
0/4 6% Gigli (2003) Gigli rhymes with "really." As in "really bad," or "really offensive," or "really wish I'd remembered my gun so I could just shoot myself now and end the misery." ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Aug 1, 2003
2.5/4 38% On_Line (2003) At its heart, On_Line is just an old-fashioned movie about people, relationships and making connections in an isolated world. And in this sense, the movie is very successful. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jul 1, 2003
2/4 11% Alex & Emma (2003) Quote not available. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jun 24, 2003
2/4 41% Rugrats Go Wild (2003) Television-loving children will scream for Rugrats Go Wild!, and in this case, their parents can go ahead and let them-they won't be missing much. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jun 23, 2003
1.5/4 10% Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd (2003) The easiest way to write a review of Dumb and Dumberer might be to say that it lives up to its title. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Jun 23, 2003
3/4 40% The Lizzie McGuire Movie (2003) Duff is a charming heroine who carries the movie cheerfully, if not gracefully-the pratfalls come early and often. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted May 6, 2003
2/4 14% View from the Top (2003) Though it does not exactly have wings, View from the Top might be worth a viewing -- particularly when it's next to Sweet Home Alabama on the video rack. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 25, 2003
3/4 82% Amandla! A Revolution in Four-Part Harmony (2003) Informative, compelling, and music to the ears. ‐ Premiere Magazine
Posted Mar 4, 2003
2.5/4 67% Kira's Reason: A Love Story (2003) Stengade, in her first leading role, is at once vulnerable and frighteningly manic. ‐ Premiere Magazine
