Rating T-Meter Title | Year Review

Handsome Harry (2010)

"Sheridan (who also produced) is well cast as the good-looking, rugged Harry, and his performance is certainly adequate." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 7, 2010

Marmaduke (2010)

"Bland sitcom romp based on the long-running comic strip features wisecracking canines in a beach-set family story." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 4, 2010

Righteous Kill (2008)

"An ordinary cop picture boosted by two charismatic superstars but hindered by its dearth of surprises." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 11, 2008

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: A VeggieTales Movie (2008)

"Pirates scores with adventure, humor and a morality tale rather than a standard biblical message." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 11, 2008

September Dawn (2007)

"[The film] too often feels like a very elaborate episode of Gunsmoke." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 24, 2007

Black Sheep (2006)

"A giddily subversive addition to the age-old cinema tradition of the horror comedy." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 20, 2007

In the Land of Women (2007)

"With an age-old cinema theme of a young man's maturation, it also needs to land female ticket-buyers but seems a lot like something women could find at home on the WE channel." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 19, 2007

Daddy's Little Girls (2007)

"Lumbering morality tale packaged as a romance." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 14, 2007

Norbit (2007)

"Puerile comedy vehicle is a backward step for its star." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 8, 2007

Barnyard (2006)

"While youngsters might enjoy the movie, more discerning tweens, teens and adults will not be as easily amused, and boxoffice prospects look modest, albeit followed by a long DVD shelf life." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 3, 2006

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (2006)

"A raucously fun, fluid follow-up with an ecological message." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 31, 2006

The Shaggy Dog (2006)

"Manages to sail past many of the cliches usually found in this genre while throwing together a wild story line more apt for a new millennium." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 6, 2006

Hellbent (2005)

"If audiences have been waiting for a gay slasher film, their wait might be over, but their appetite will not be sated." ‐ Hollywood Reporter

No Score Yet

Meet the Family (2005)

"The no-name cast is barely adequate: They declare lines with all the nuance of old, rapid-fire Laugh-In one-liners, dumbed down with sexual innuendo." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jul 28, 2005

Rebound (2005)

"Predictable yet passably entertaining." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 30, 2005

Swimming Upstream (2004)

"Good as Rush and Davis are as combative working-class parents Harold and Dora, their story line overpowers the drippy dramatics of their teen athlete son. It unwittingly feels like two separate movies." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 5, 2005

Enduring Love (2004)

"Craig, in his meatiest film role to date, delivers his usual incisive performance, even if this intimate drama of contemporary Londoners pushes the boundaries of credibility." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 13, 2004

Raise Your Voice (2004)

"It resembles an episode of TV's Saved by the Bell, with a bigger budget and an underlying religious bent." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 7, 2004

Vlad (2004)

"It boasts enough camp, skin and 15th century flashbacks of torment to make it fitting fodder for campus screens." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 24, 2004

National Lampoon's Gold Diggers (2004)

"This cheap-looking, broad and ultimately unnecessary comedy makes John Landis' benchmark Animal House -- one of the earliest films to bear the National Lampoon brand name -- look like Lubitsch." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Sep 17, 2004

Catch That Kid (2004)

"Remake of Danish family film is mainly fun for the young." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Feb 5, 2004

The Perfect Score (2004)

"The story is flimsy, and when the dialogue touches on controversial issues regarding the SAT and its fairness, the slacker tone turns abruptly melodramatic." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jan 29, 2004

Looney Tunes: Back in Action (2003)

"It will never be confused with the groundbreaking Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but when it comes to a zippy live-action-meets-animation kid flick with plenty of grown-up gags, Looney Tunes: Back in Action does not disappoint." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Nov 11, 2003

Controlled Chaos (2007)

"It's hard to tell whether film school grad Zendel thought she was crafting a new-millennium Sunset Boulevard, but what results is more like the cultish morass of Showgirls in its camp dramatization of a poisonous entertainment milieu." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Jun 5, 2003

The Young Unknown (2000)

"A curious exercise in the vein of David Rabe's Hurlyburly that needed greater dramatic heft than is exhibited by the industry lightweights it depicts." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Apr 15, 2003

Piglet's Big Movie (2003)

"Fiedler brings his trademark high-pitched squeal to the beloved, childlike Piglet. The other voice actors are just as good, with each one providing great heart and verve for their respective characters." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Mar 24, 2003

Hansel & Gretel (2002)

"It would be hard to imagine a more feeble rendering of the 19th century Grimm Brothers tale." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 31, 2002

Jonah - A VeggieTales Movie (2002)

"A musical whale-of-a-tale that should engage, inform and amuse parents as well as offspring." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Oct 2, 2002

Streeters (De La Calle) (2001)

"An engrossing, contemporary look at the life of teenagers and young children living on and under the streets of Mexico City." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted Aug 1, 2002

Ultimate X: The Movie (2002)

"Provides a satisfactory overview of the bizarre world of extreme athletes as several daredevils express their own views." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
Posted May 10, 2002

Auggie Rose (2001)

"A picture that feels awfully slight." ‐ Hollywood Reporter
