Bridge to Terabithia (2007)

"[Director Csupo] succeeds in keeping his main characters well-rooted in their daily lives, and his restraint in creating Terabithia is commendable. With no gratuitous rainbows, elves or unicorns, it somehow is believable." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Yours, Mine & Ours (2005)

"It's unlikely that anyone from that real family would see himself in the remake starring Rene Russo and Dennis Quaid. It's a story told in extremes, as if there weren't enough comedy potential in 18 kids under one roof." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Garfield - The Movie (2004)

Agent Cody Banks 2: Destination London (2004)

"They are evil and they must be stopped. They being studio production executives who gleefully greenlight a sequel to an OK kid-targeted adventure movie just because they are blinded by flashing dollar signs." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Latter Days (2004)

"Sounds like the kind of movie that might appeal to, I dunno, maybe all seven openly gay Mormons and not many others." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

The Haunted Mansion (2003)

"It's true that last summer's hit Pirates of the Caribbean is one tough act to follow, but The Haunted Mansion falls short even without such comparisons." ‐Los Angeles Daily News

The Wild Thornberrys Movie (2002)

Rollerball (2002)

"What do you get when you cross an MGM cult film with costumes from a World Wrestling Federation garage sale and an editor with a short attention span?" ‐Los Angeles Daily News

Max Keeble's Big Move (2001)

"Schoolyard bullying is a touchy issue these days, having been pinpointed as the root of many larger crises such as school shootings. Too bad Keeblesed the opportunity to teach kids something about it." ‐Los Angeles Daily News
Posted Oct 6, 2001

Recess: School's Out (2001)

The Legend of Drunken Master (Jui kuen II) (Drunken Fist II) (1994)
