T-Meter Title | Year
13% Dr. Seuss' The Grinch Musical! (2020) This attempt at the heartwarming tale makes the Grinch's hatred of song and dance seem reasonable. Halfway through, you might find yourself advocating for the Whos to adopt his way of life. - Washington Post EDIT

28% The Kissing Booth 2 (2020) If "The Kissing Booth 2" is watchable, viewers have Elle to thank; King remains the strongest component of a now-franchise that, quite frankly, might be beneath her. - Washington Post EDIT

2/4 42% What Men Want (2019) "What Men Want" avoids some of the pitfalls of gender-flipping, given how loose its connection to "What Women Want" is. But that doesn't mean it's good. - Washington Post EDIT

2.5/4 84% A Simple Favor (2018) Ice cold and finished off with a dramatic twist, "A Simple Favor" has a lot in common with the gin martinis that its lead characters drink throughout the film. - Washington Post EDIT

2.5/4 76% Never Goin' Back (2018) "Never Goin' Back" owes much of its watchability to the actresses' natural chemistry. Together, they paint a portrait of adolescent friendship so vibrant that it makes up for much of the movie's structural flaws. - Washington Post EDIT

2/4 49% The Spy Who Dumped Me (2018) The movie is the cinematic equivalent of the Cheesecake Factory. - Washington Post EDIT

1.5/4 58% Bad Moms (2016) Living up to to the low expectations set by its title, "Bad Moms" does little to surpass them. - Boston Globe EDIT
