"Not nearly as good as previous American Girl films, because without a historical context to divert the writers and director, all that's left is to focus on cheesy feel-good warmth and a formulaic plot. "
The Pirates! Band of Misfits (2012)
Darling Companion (2012)
"This is a movie that all but licks your face and begs you to like it, and you'll find yourself wanting to oblige. But it's just too structured and seems overly concerned with conveying a sense of real time . . . "

The Incredible Mr. Limpet (1964)
""Pocahontas" isn't an A-movie in the Disney catalog, but it's a solid second-tier film that, despite its romanticizing of the "noble savage," nonetheless features themes that are wholesome and consistent with Disney's messaging."
The Arsenal Stadium Mystery (1940)
Grosse Pointe Blank (1997)
"For John Cusack lovers, "Grosse Pointe Blank" is one of his best, an engaging showcase for his droll demeanor and a seamless blend of comedy and action. It's light entertainment, in spite of the body count."
Let It Shine (2012)
High Fidelity (2000)
"While the second half is a pleasure, it's the first half that's less impressive. I've seen this deadpan narrator with the bottled-up angst so many times that I looked to the lines and the minor characters to see me through."
Adventures in Babysitting (1987)
The Preacher's Wife (1996)
The Three Stooges (2012)
"Despite some strong production values and performances, the sepia-toned saga ends up being more routine than standout, and more curious than compelling. It feels like something that could have been much more."
