Movie Ratings and Reviews

Bride and Prejudice

The first Bollywood movie I've seen, so maybe I missed something. I thought it was fun, but obviously it doesn't reach the same depths as the novel.

The Informant!

I wanted to like this because I LOVE Matt Damon, but it really didn't hold my attention.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End

It really bums me out how much the pirates franchise went downhill.

Toy Story 3
Toy Story 3(2010)

I love animation, and I love to see an animated movie receiving as much respect as this one has. All well-deserved in my opinion. The folks at Pixar took their story full-circle, continuing to find new ways to explore the world of toys. I loved the new characters, particularly Trixie the Triceratops.

The Kids Are All Right

A movie about a lesbian couple and their children that doesn't turn their sexuality into a gimmick. The cast delivers universally strong performances.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1

I've seen this twice now, and I would definitely say it's one of the best. It has the perfect mix of drama and lighter moments, so you never feel too bogged down. Most of the child stars have grown into good actors too. Rupert Grint's speech when he comes back to the other two particularly touched me.


Who doesn't enjoy seeing Rupert Grint get into some adult-themed trouble. I would say it was a stellar movie, but Grint and Sheehan are adorable. What I couldn't figure out was what they saw in that girl.

The Bad Mother's Handbook

Really quite bad. Saw it for Robert Pattinson, but it wasn't worth it.


Absolutely stunning. Absolutely adorable.

Remember Me
Remember Me(2010)

The beginning and the end had my mouth hanging open in shock, but the middle was fairly forgettable.

Good Will Hunting

I'm basically in love with young Matt Damon (and middle-aged Matt Damon), so this is maybe a biased opinion. Still, I find this movie utterly charming and ultimately moving. Has to be one of Robin Williams' best performances. Plus music by Elliot Smith - jackpot!

The Shining
The Shining(1980)

I'm not exactly a horror movie enthusiast, but this movie is obviously well-made. Jack Nicholson can be so creepy without even trying.


The first twelve minutes are so were absolutely amazing. Computer animation at its best. At first I thought it had very serious themes for a family movie, but the addition of the talking dogs took things down a notch. I must say, I liked it better when it wasn't trying to be quite so silly. Still, an impressive film.

Easy A
Easy A(2010)

I still have much love for teen comedies, especially when they have such a fun cast. Dan Byrd is a highlight.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Another stop in the Summer of Michael Cera. I liked seeing him in a slightly different role, even if it meant he was playing a bit of a jerk. Major props to whoever cast Kieran Culkin. Really the charm and the problem of this movie are one in the same. It's so high concept that it's hard to get past the comic book/video games tricks to characters that you actually care about as a viewer.

Youth in Revolt

I got a good laugh out of this movie. As always, I love Michael Cera. It was fun to see him in this particularly awkward role, with his formal vocabulary and too-short pants. My only complaint is that the characters never quite stopped feeling like characters, if that makes any sense.

High Fidelity

This is probably one of the most literal film adaptions I have ever seen. Luckily when your source material is as witty and conversational as Nick Hornby's novel, you can pull that off. John Cusack is perfect for his role, and the same goes for Jack Black and Catherina Zeta Jones.

Love and Basketball

I thought this movie was pretty awesome circa eighth grade. The leads are talented actors, and their chemistry is, well, hot.


Okay, so it had all the usual war movies themes. At least it was about a war that we rarely see depicted in the media, and about a element of the war heard about even less. Fighter pilots in World War I?! Who knew?! Plus James Franco has enough devilish charm to make it enjoyable viewing. A few less emotional swells of music, and we would have been golden.

The Runaways
The Runaways(2010)

This movie caught my attention from the beginning, but then it didn't do anything with it. Dakota Fanning was well-cast in her role. Kristen Stewart looked the part of Joan Jett, even if I haven't seen much range in her acting. Great supporting cast like Alia Shawkat were hardly used. Basically I don't think it broke any new ground for the musical biopic. Even with the intense focus on Cherie Currie and Joan Jett, and still didn't feel that I understood their relationship by the end.

The Reader
The Reader(2008)

I watched this movie the same day that I finished reading the book. i knew that was a risk in that it made me more likely to notice small differences between the film adaptation and the novel. The fact that this film stood up to that close of a comparison speaks volumes about its quality. I'm a huge Kate Winslet fan, and she captured this complex character with her usual bravery. I appreciate that the film stayed true to the book in its discussion of the Holocaust, and didn't use superfluous flashback images to exploit the viewer's emotions. In this case, the aftermath portrays the horror of the events themselves.

Letters to Juliet

Okay, so any movie that allows me to bask in the beauty of Tuscany gets bonus points in my book. And Vanessa Redgrave, hello, she's fabulous. Definitely helped bring the movie to a higher level. I'm fond of Amanda Seyfried based on her stint on Veronica Mars, and I liked her and Chris Egan as a couple. Sure, it was fairly predictably. And Gael Garcia Bernal's character was so truly annoying. Still, a fine movie to see at the budget theater.

Dear John
Dear John(2010)

Contrary to some reviews I've read, I found Channing Tatum and Amanda Seyfried hard to believe as a couple. It's not that I have anything against either of them as actors. They just didn't make me believe that they were in love at the beginning of the movie, which puts a damper on the rest of the festivities. I would probably point to Seyfried as the main cause of my disbelief. I just never quite got a handle on her character, and she felt very awkward to me. Tatum actually has some touching moments, particularly in the last scene with his father. And speaking of the ending, it was classic Nicholas Sparks to be sure, but I didn't feel satisfied.


I couldn't deal with this movie. There's a lot of notable actors, but that doesn't necessarily a good movie make. Call me old-fashioned. I still like my stories with a touch of redemption, hope, purpose, something.

Valentine's Day

It was about what I expected it to be. Obviously with this many characters, they're not getting too in-depth into any one storyline. Still, it was fun to see how all the characters fit together as the movie progressed. I also found couples to root for. So overall, a romantic comedy that does what it sets out to do.

Whatever It Takes

What a total cliche of late '90s/early 2000s high school comedy. I mean, I watched this movie because of my affection for the genre (and for James Franco), and I got exactly that. Even the cast is such a mishmash of people from that era. Shane West, obviously, and Marla Sokoloff. There's even the popular girl from "She's All That" playing...the popular girl! I would say, watch it for a laugh but don't expect too much.

The Hangover
The Hangover(2009)

What a great cast in a laugh-out-loud comedy. I'm so glad this movie brought Zach Galifianakis into my life. You would think that seeing this so late, a lot of the novelty would have played out before my viewing. In actuality, there were still plenty of surprises to keep me entertaining. It's also great to see Ed Helms in a big-time movie role.

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse

Taking the love triangle to new levels of angst. Whereas I liked New Moon better because of more Taylor Lautner and less Robert Pattinson, this movie has them both all the time, and it gets to be a little much. I think the new director was trying a little too hard to prove that Jacob is a total badass now. It was fun to see some of the more memorable scenes on the big screen (the threesome in a tent, anyone?), but I don't think it takes the series to a new level by an means.

Away We Go
Away We Go(2009)

John Krasinski and Maya Rudolph made a (surprisingly?) believable couple. I could really feel a familiarity between them. I enjoyed seeing all the different relationships around them, even though some might have gone over the top (Maggie Gyllenhaal, anyone?).

The Duchess
The Duchess(2008)

It looked amazing, of course. Ralph Fiennes was super-creepy. Still, probably not in the top tier of period dramas.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Paul Newman at his steamiest. I watch this movie for him, 100%.


Cate Blanchett kicks some pretty serious tail in this movie. She's perfect for the role of Queen Elizabeth.

Wristcutters: A Love Story

An inventive idea, and surprisingly sweet in parts. It probably takes some missteps, especially toward the end, but overall I was very intrigued by the concept and the characters.

Bickford Shmeckler's Cool Ideas

Oh, Patrick Fugit, what a bizarre movie you made.

Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day

I like all of the actors, but the story didn't do much for me. Amy Adams is usually lovely, but she was hard to like in this role. Of course, the clothes were divine.

Paper Heart
Paper Heart(2009)

As a Michael Cera fanatic, it's hard to be objective about this movie. Mostly I enjoyed seeing how awkward "real" Michael could still be with a girl. However, I was hoping for more of Charlyne's interviews about love with other familiar faces like Seth Rogen and Martin Starr.

Step Up 2 the Streets

Cotton candy: sweet and forgettable.

The Rescuers
The Rescuers(1977)

Not Disney at its best, but still cute. Bianca has a great accent, as I recall.


I love this movie and I cannot lie. I think the cast makes up for any of its issues. And Penelope's clothes are too cute.

My Fair Lady
My Fair Lady(1964)

I'm a musical lover, but this one doesn't do it for me. Eliza is just too freakin' annoying!

The Queen
The Queen(2006)

Slow and steady, but beautifully done.

I Love You, Man

I love Paul Rudd. I love Jason Segel. Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg are delightful. What's not to like?

Balls of Fury

I' Dan Fogler is basically the poor man's Jack Black.

The Family Man

Meh. I've never been huge on Nicolas Cage, but it was okay.

No Reservations

So sue me. It was cute! Apparently I'm required to see all romantic comedies starring Abigail Breslin.

The Last of the Mohicans

Had to watch this in my history class, oddly enough. Didn't blow my mind, but Daniel Day-Lewis was good.

The Kite Runner

An amazing movie based on an amazed book. Should be required reading for Americans.

Lars and the Real Girl

Okay, so the premise is weird. But the movie itself is actually quite tame, and sweet in parts. Emily Mortimer gives a great performance.

Office Space
Office Space(1999)

Some excellently quotable moments.


"C'mon, Seabiscuit!" said my ninth grade science teacher.

Mouse Hunt
Mouse Hunt(1997)

I know I watched this at some point. Why do we punish our children so?


Love love love. Amy Adams is perfect for this role. I grew up with Disney, so I appreciate the parody.

Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves!

Another childhood classic. I preferred it to the first, for whatever reason.

Elizabeth: The Golden Age

Not as good as the first, but it's still Cate Blanchett. Plus some Clive Owen yummy bonus.

Death Race
Death Race(2008)

Probably one of the most ridiculous movies I've ever seen.

Hot Fuzz
Hot Fuzz(2007)

Oh, those crazy Brits.

The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause

The fact that I have seen this shames me deeply. And no David Krummy to make it better.

Angels & Demons

Thankfully they improved Tom Hanks's hair. It's fairly bloody compared to The Da Vinci Code, which is more disturbing on the screen, obviously.

The Wedding Date

I will admit, Dermot Mulroney is a sexy man. Even if you're hiring him as your wedding date.


Might be cheesy now, but this seemed brilliant to my middle school self. Tim Curry is always great.


Such a silly movie. What else can we expect from Jason Statham?

Spirited Away

Awesome! The visuals blow me away, and it's so refreshingly different from American animation.

The Rescuers Down Under

Another one from my childhood. Not exactly first tier Disney, but still pretty cute.

Little Miss Sunshine

Impossible not to like this. Not a single weak link in the cast.

Father of the Bride

I used to really like these movies as a I'm not sure why.


Kind of a weird movie. I didn't like it as much as I expected to. The pies were interesting though.


As dancing flicks go, it's okay. Maybe I'm just not of the right era.

The Dark Knight

Heath Ledger is amazing, of course. I also prefer Maggie Gyllenhaal as the female lead. Main complaint: the multiple fake endings! They practically tacked on another movie.

License to Wed

Mandy Moore and John Krasinski are two people I like. Why didn't I like this movie?


I don't think I quite have the stomach for this. It's just so freaking sad.

The Bourne Ultimatum

The third Bourne installment does not disappoint. In fact, it blows my mind a little bit.

Across the Universe

I like the Beatles as much as the next guy, but this was very thin on plot.

Almost Famous

This is a role I actually like Kate Hudson in. Plus it's Cameron Crowe. Plus it's young Patrick Fugit. So many reasons to watch, so little time.

Date Night
Date Night(2010)

Funny cameos and likable leads save this movie.

Everything is Illuminated

Let's be serious. It's all about Eugene Hutz.


Heartbreaking and heartwarming by turns.

Whip It
Whip It(2009)

Man, they collected quite the supported cast for this flick. Everyone did their part, and it was a lot of fun. Not gonna ask much more.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

A collection of great actors makes up for an overly long movie.

Forrest Gump
Forrest Gump(1994)

Makes me cry every single time. Tom Hanks can't be touched.

Smooth Talk
Smooth Talk(1985)

In my world, nothing can touch the Joyce Carol Oates story.

Year One
Year One(2009)

Oh jeez. It wasn't THAT bad.

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist

Two talented leads and a fun supporting cast. What's not to like? Though if I'm being honest, they had me at Michael Cera.

Funny People
Funny People(2009)

Totally unrated in my opinion. I normally am not an Adam Sandler fan, but the man can act when given the right vehicle. Plus a great soundtrack.

17 Again
17 Again(2009)

If Zac Efron is going to be on the big screen, this sort of thing seems like his cup of tea. A good supporting cast helps him out considerably.

X-Men Origins - Wolverine

Seemed to be trading on a lot of superhero movie cliches. His angry because his heart was broken, etc.

Star Trek
Star Trek(2009)

What a blast! Sheer entertainment!

Definitely, Maybe

I always appreciate when a romantic comedy comes up with a unique way to tell a love story. An all-around likable cast.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon

An improvement on the first film, surely. The addition of Taylor Lautner's abs doesn't hurt anything.


Not a particularly good movie technically speaking, but entertaining for a lot of the same reasons.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Maybe not the best from the Judd Apatow crew, but I will forever have a soft spot for Jason Segal.


Ellen Page is genius. Michael Cera is genius. Diablo Cody, the woman behind it all, is clearly genius.

500 Days of Summer

One of my favorites in the last couple years. Clever and poignant with a talented cast.

Bright Star
Bright Star(2009)

Visually gorgeous. Add some Keats poetry, and bam!

Step Up
Step Up(2006)

I was once so snotty as to say I wouldn't see this. Oh, foolish girl.

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)

This is Will Smith at his ass-kicking best.

I, Robot
I, Robot(2004)

I always love Will Smith. Not his best, but a lotta fun.

Casino Royale

Sweet! I'm on Daniel Craig's team.

Happy Feet
Happy Feet(2006)

Penguins and singing? Pretty darn cute.

Match Point
Match Point(2005)

Apart from the opera driving me crazy, this is a cool show. Jonathon Rhys Meyers is a creepy man.

Brokeback Mountain

God, Heath Ledger was a talented man. It breaks my little heart.

American Pie 2

These don't excite me much.

Dodgeball - A True Underdog Story

Vince Vaughn is not my fave, but I've always had a soft spot for Ben Stiller.

Rain Man
Rain Man(1988)

Watched it for AP Psych. Dustin Hoffman is always wonderful.

Lost In Translation

Feel like I should like this movie more than I do. The setting is way cool though.

I Heart Huckabees

Funny but maybe a little bizarre for my taste.

Cold Mountain

There are some good performances, but it doesn't stick out in my memory.

Garden State
Garden State(2004)

The music is probably the best part.

The 40 Year Old Virgin

Love to see Steve Carrell doing his thing. Some great comedians and great lines.

The Sixth Sense

Obviously a classic. Bogey is superb in this.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

Was glad to see the comedic elements brought in. Apart from a few random additions, a good adaptation of one of my fave books from the series.


Freakin' beautiful. Freakin' heartbreaking.

Knocked Up
Knocked Up(2007)

I was so glad to see Seth Rogen get his chance to shine as a comedy leading man.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Maybe not Seth Rogen's best work, but a fun show all the same.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Not my favorite movie. Still, it's visually exciting, and the DA parts are a lot of fun.

The Princess and the Frog

I'm not a kid anymore, but apparently I still love Disney. This has great music and great characters. A love song to New Orleans.

Becoming Jane

I love Jane Austen, but this wasn't the best.


Great music and great actors!

Mamma Mia!
Mamma Mia!(2008)

Okay, so it's not quite the Broadway show, but it's pretty darn cute.


Will probably be one of the quintessential movies of my generation. Hilarious and vulgar and ultimately sweet.

To Kill A Mockingbird

A classic in book and movie form.

Role Models
Role Models(2008)

What can I say? Paul Rudd is pretty great. Plus Jane Lynch and McLovin!


Some great actors and some great parody.

27 Dresses
27 Dresses(2008)

Not so bad, but not great either. Nice to see James Marsden actually get the girl. Also the "Bennie and the Jets" part was quality.


Oh, this was way cute!

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

I liked the movies a lot up until this point, but the whole Venom sequence was just way too much.

Shrek the Third

It was cute but ultimately forgettable. Be ups to John Krasinski as Lancelot.


Oh gee whiz. Actually not as bad as I was expecting. I got some cheesy laughs out of it.

Shakespeare in Love

I love it. Aren't writers just the most interesting people? Naturally. Plus pretty much every British actor alive today is in it.

Bridget Jones's Diary

Live it, love it, my friends. The singletons' hero is Bridget Jones. This is one of the all-time best romantic comedies. Plus Colin Firth...yes!

Pride and Prejudice

This is one of my all-time favorites. I love the story, I love this adaptation. It's so beautifully shot, and Keira is a great Elizabeth.


Such an extreme favorite of mine. It's just my kind of humor. So cleverly written. Plus it was cast perfectly.

Sense and Sensibility

I love Jane Austen...and Emma Thompson...and Hugh Grant. Thus and therefore, I love this movie. It's so funny.

Say Anything...

I have such a crush on John Cusack circa 1989. I'm such a sucker for romance, but this is witty too. The scene at the Gas-N-Zip is genius.

About a Boy
About a Boy(2002)

I love British humor, so this movie was great for me.


Oh oh oh! So so so so awesome. One of the best Disney movies to date. You go girl.


Yes, I do love this one too. Actually I have the soundtrack. Oh jeez. It's just such a perfect story for a young girl to get into.


This is one of the greats as classic kid movies go. I loved it as a kid. The stepsisters cracked me up. The whole ending with the mice moving the key gets long though.

The Lion King

Go Simba! What awesome music too. I saw this several times in the theater when it first came out.

Beauty and the Beast

I love it. Top five Disney flicks (I think, although I may be saying that more than five times).

The Little Mermaid

I've said this a couple times already, but this is one of the best Disney movies. Really! I always loved the "Part of Your World" scene so much.

Walk the Line

So good. Joaquin and Reese were amazing. I loved the music, and of course the romance. I'm such a girl.

Guys and Dolls

The only part that gets long is when Sky and Sara are in Cuba. Otherwise I love it so much.


You're the one that I want! Oo-oo-oo! An all-time fave of mine, although I watched it so much as a kid that I almost burned out on it.

Moulin Rouge!

The first time I watched it, I was perplexed. All the colors, the sounds. The second time, I was hooked. The Elephant Love Medley is my favorite part.

The Sound of Music

A classic! The music! The scenery! The romance! Oh, I love it. I used to pretend I was Maria dancing with my mom's curtains.

The Departed
The Departed(2006)

I think this is one of the most violent, potty-mouthed movies I've seen so far, but I still liked it. Don't know what that says about me. You just can't beat this cast.

The Italian Job

There's some sweet Mini-Cooper action for you.

Because I Said So

I wanted to like it. I tried to like it. It had some actoresses I really enjoy. I just wish they had given me a character I could like instead of be annoyed by.

Roman Holiday

Audrey doesn't bug me in this role, so that's something. And Gregory Peck's voice...oh baby.

The Holiday
The Holiday(2006)

I love the Kate Winslet-Jack Black storyline.


Maybe my expectations were too high. I thought I would love this, and I only liked it.

West Side Story

I love the music, and I'm definitely a sucker for sweeping romance. Of course, you have to ignore the fact that their relationship is based on...nothing. Also some completely unnecessary dancing.

Murder by Numbers

Ryan Gosling and Michael Pitt are both good actors, but this is like a lengthened Law & Order episode with some backstory.

March of the Penguins

The dead baby penguins are so sad. It's a good show to see in the theater, I think.

The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants

So sue me, I didn't mind this movie. The part in Greece is so pretty, and America Ferrera is great in her role. She made me cry!


Oh Lordy. I can barely look at Hatchet-Face. What a crazy movie.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Eh, not so much my favorite.

Romeo and Juliet

Watched this is English class. Actually pretty good, and some of the guys are hot.

Ring Two
Ring Two(2005)

Wow, I've actually seen this. Naturally it freaked me out.

My Girl
My Girl(1991)

I just remember that it made me cry.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe

Possibly better than I was expecting. I wasn't a huge fan of the books, but I read them and I think the movie version brought out the Biblical allegory quite well.

Benny & Joon
Benny & Joon(1993)

I thought Johnny Depp and Mary Stuart Masterson were awesome in their roles, but Aidan Quinn and his constantly wide eyes bugged me.

Wedding Crashers

I hoped there would be more of them actually, you know, crashing weddings. That was my favorite part. The second half got a bit silly. But hey, it was a good laugh.

Stranger Than Fiction

So I'm totally biased because I love Emma Thompson, but I really did like this. Obviously not what one expects from a Will Ferrell movie, but I respect him much more after seeing this. And the Maggie Gyllenhaal storyline was too sweet.

Marie Antoinette

This was one of those times when I thought I would REALLY love a movie, and it turned out I didn't love it quite as much as I was expecting. Obviously it was visually fabulous, but some of the discontinuity with the music and tone turned me off.

Friends With Money

With this movie, I got what I expected. Certainly not in the feel-good category, just some female-centered drama. It was cool to have the female ensemble as the focus of the movie with the men in their lives as the minor characters. Well-acted, well-directed. Good show, ladies.

A Goofy Movie

Totally revealing my nerdiness here (what a shock) but this made me really sad when I was little. I don't even remember the storyline except that the son was mean to the dad and I found it thoroughly depressing.

American Beauty

Wow. So crazy. It was obviously well-made, but I felt like in the process of showing how detached that characters were from their lives, the audience in turn was detached from them.

The American President

So I was fully loving the gov when I caught this on the tellie, but I thought it was pretty cool if you rather enjoy politics. Plus Annette Bening is awesome.

Simon Birch
Simon Birch(1998)

I saw it quite a while ago, but I really liked it.

Grease 2
Grease 2(1982)

Yikes. So sloppily done. Really it was just milking the success of the first movie.

The Ice Storm

This kind of reminds me of Igby Goes Down in toen and style. Both are kind of trippy yet enjoyable movies. It's funny to see all these now famous actors and actoresses in a movie together as teenagers. We're talking Elijah Wood, Tobey Macguire, Christina Ricci, and Katie Holmes. Crazy, huh?

Peter Pan
Peter Pan(1953)

I had both the cartoon and a video of the play as a kid. Well, I guess I still have them. The animated version is pretty great. Now in my top five Disney, but definitely top ten.


My dad was appauled that I had never seen this. Now I have. Pretty funny. Not exactly by brand of humor, but good.


Michael Caine is good and everything but it's hard to like a guy who uses women like that.

Joy Ride
Joy Ride(2001)

Eh. Not so very awesome.

An American in Paris

I lurve old musicals, and Gene Kelly is the master.

The Good Son
The Good Son(1993)

Ahhh! Macaulay Culkin is so scary in this movie!

Life or Something Like It

This was pretty forgettable.

The Graduate
The Graduate(1967)

Dustin Hoffman's performance is very different. Cool different though. And I dig all the Simon and Garfunkel...because I'm just that cool.

The Borrowers

Mmmm. Not a fave. Amusing to see young Tom Felton though.

The Return of Jafar

Not as good as the first, obviously, but not as bad as a lot of the sequels.

Joe's Apartment

Watched it with my former boyfriend. It wasn't my idea. Pretty crazy and low-budget, but almost charming in its way.

The Parent Trap

I must say, I am a fan. I always wanted to be the one from London (or Boston in the old movie) which made me a bit weird.

The Parent Trap

I was a fan of this one before the Lindsey Lohan version came out. I prefer the camp part in the old version.

It Takes Two
It Takes Two(1995)

It's a bit of a cheese-fest, but oh well. Kirstie Alley is kind of fun.

Our Lips Are Sealed

Like Passport to Paris, but getting even worse.

Passport to Paris

I just recently reviewed this with a friend...what were we thinking?! Oh-so-corny, but at least this was the first time they did the "go to foreign country, meet two cute guys" schtick, not the fourth.

Get Over It
Get Over It(2001)

I actually went to this in the theater! What can I say? I was young. It was so silly, but rather funny as I recall.

Mystic Pizza
Mystic Pizza(1988)

Admittedly I didn't watch this very carefully, but Julia seemed to be slumming it pretty heavily.

The Goodbye Girl

I watched this in the wee hours of the morning on TCM, and I remember thinking it was ::sigh:: fabulous. Richard Dreyfuss at his best.

The Producers

Okay, I've only seen it once which for musically especially is not enough to really judge. But I thought it was a little over the top. This for a huge Moulin Rouge fan may seem hypocritical, but there you go.

The Jungle Book

I liked it as a really little kid for some reason, but it was soon eclipsed by others.

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

This is my favorite of the LOTR movies actually. I love the whole Rohan culture and the sliver of girl power that storyline provides.


I always thought this one was rather subpar.


Such a classic. Sa-weet.

A Knight's Tale

It was solid, but not exactly mind-blowing.

The Brothers Grimm

Hmmm. Why does everyone have an English accent, even the GERMAN people? Oh, and there's the one exaggeratedly French guy.

40 Days and 40 Nights

From what I've caught on the tellie, pretty weak.

Sleepless in Seattle

It's just so weird that they aren't together for 99% of the movie.


I teeter between being annoyed with Audrey Hepburn and sort of liking her. But Cary Grant is undeniably charming. I love the film noir-ish style of the movie too.

The Philadelphia Story

Katharine Hepburn is just way cool. Plus I have a bizarre attraction to James Stewart.

The Prince & Me

Why, Julia? I don't know. I mean, sure, the guy is cute enough, but that's no excuse. Plus the fact that she whips off his shirt when they go off to makeout in the library...baffling.

Hocus Pocus
Hocus Pocus(1993)

I liked that one rode a vacuum and one rode a mop or something. Genius.

Gone With the Wind

Too doggone long to be awesome all the way through, but there are some classic parts.

The Ring Two
The Ring Two(2005)

Never saw the first one, but that didn't matter much when viewing this. It was fine, I guess. Some cool imagery, but I can't imagine reviewing it for enjoyment.

Down to You
Down to You(2000)

So I love Julia Stiles, and Freddie Prinze is a good egg, but this was rather uninspired. All I really remember is the "can I psychoanalyze you?" part and a lot about sex.

How to Deal
How to Deal(2003)

Okay, it's not exactly Oscar-worthy. However, it IS based on two books by the fabulous Sarah Dessen and if you want some drama-lite, it's all good.

Someone Like You

Yeah, pretty cliche, but the whole "men always want a new cow" thing was rather amusing. But did they steal the entire soundtrack of the first Bridget Jones? I swear!

Igby Goes Down

Very much reminded me of a modern-day Catcher in the Rye. Kieran Culkin is pretty sweet. I felt so bad for him though! Actually the whole cast was superb. A little creepy seeing Susan Sarandon get offed but oh well.

The Crucible
The Crucible(1996)

This plays kicks butt, and the movie was good too. Daniel Day-Lewis...niiiiice.

Mississippi Burning

I thought this was a great movie. Gene Hackman was, in the words of my friend, kicking ass and taking names.

Beethoven's 2nd

Jeez. i know I saw this at some point. It must have sucked, right?


Another one of those that kept popping up at daycare and whatnot. I think I thought it was romantic at the end, 'cause wasn't the kid who played real-boy Casper kind of cute?


I think the show is awesome because Joss Whedon is a genius. However, the movie wasn't quite as good. But that's still pretty darn good.

The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

I remember going with my friend just for the heck of it one Friday night. So silly.

Stuart Little 2

Okay, Stuart Little is so cute. 'Nuff said.

North Country

Charlize does an awesome job, of course, but this movie mostly makes you hate men.

The Neverending Story

I just remember being tripped out so bad by these movies.


*blush* I saw this in the theater...twice. Oh, man. Well, Britney isn't much of an actress, but they somehow got some decent supporting cast members to hold it together.

Black Beauty
Black Beauty(1994)

I know I saw it, but it didn't make much of an impression since I barely recall a thing about it.

The Fox and the Hound

I didn't know Mickey Rooney was one of the voices! Okay, this wasn't really a fave of mine

Breakfast at Tiffany's

Maybe I was too young to really "get it," but I didn't like this.

Ladder 49
Ladder 49(2004)

This was one of those bummer endings. But I do adore Joaquin and John.

All Dogs Go To Heaven

It wasn't a childhood favorite. In fact, it may have frightened me. But not bad either.


AHHH! Why, Latifah, why?

The Little Rascals

I saw this SO MANY times as a kid. Pretty awesome, I gotta say.

Van Helsing
Van Helsing(2004)

Man, the effects were bad. Just not my thang.


It's cool to see young Jena Malone doing her thing. Not exactly a feel-good movie, but good nonetheless.

Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey

I actually enjoyed this one...even more? Does that make me weird?

Stand by Me
Stand by Me(1986)

Will Wheaton was so cute. Ditto River Phoenix.

Cruel Intentions

Reese is about up to her usual standard, or at least does what she can with the material. And what crazy material it is. Ryan on the other hand...

Hide and Seek

Argh! I was so freaked out at the end, I'm not gonna lie. Well, I guess that means they did their job.

Christmas With the Kranks

It was funny for a while, but the end got super-de-duper sappy and serious. The change in tone was too abrupt.

The Sweetest Thing

From what I've seen on TV, pretty subpar.

The Da Vinci Code

I thought the book would translate great to movie format with all the visual elements like artwork and monuments. They did an okay job, but it was a lot to fit into a movie I guess.

D2: The Mighty Ducks

Okay, pretty dumb movies but I think I preferred this one to the first. Why? I dunno.

Robin Hood: Men in Tights

I've only seen it once, but it was funny if memory serves.

The Terminal
The Terminal(2004)

I know this did bad at the box office, but it was pretty sweet. Tom Hanks is so good with accents and such. My mom and I still quote the "you have two stamps" part.

American Dreamz

Since Mandy Moore is in it, I was hoping for a parody of Saved! quality. Not so much, but provides a few laughs.

You've Got Mail

I must say, I probably watch this once or twice a year when it plays on one of the movie channels. What can I say? I love books and book stores. And Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan do have good chemistry.

Million Dollar Baby

My friend and I made fun of it the first two hours, and then felt like horrible people for the last thirty minutes.


As I recall it was kind of cool at the time, but I don't ever feel the urge to watch it again.

Knight's Tale

Oh, it's kinda cool. Always love Heath.

Homeward Bound - The Incredible Journey

I know I watched this as a tyke. It's an interesting idea, but probably would seem stupid now?

The Princess Diaries

The books are better. This is quite Disney-ized. Still, Anne Hathaway is likeable enough.


Diane Lane totally earned the Oscar nod for this. Not exactly heart-warming, but impressive.

King Arthur
King Arthur(2004)

Okay, I love Keira and Clive, but I'm too used to the magical elements of King Arthur to completely give them up.

Bend It like Beckham

My first exposure to Keira Knightley! And a decent film.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest

I thought it tried too hard to outdo the first one and in doing so forfeited some of its charm. Ah, well, Orlando's still gorgeous, Keira's still awesome, Johnny's still crazy.

Must Love Dogs

I was so sad that I didn't like this more. Hello! Love John Cusack, love Diane Lane. Honestly the editting and such felt really pedestrian. Plus I don't quite believe them as a couple.

America's Sweethearts

I haven't watched the whole thing, but it seems a bit lackluster to me.

Dead Poets Society

I was too young to watch this when I did, so parts of it were scary (suicide-like parts) but it was well-made.

Ella Enchanted

I prefer the book.

Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!

As I say, not big on Kate Bosworth, but Topher Grace rocks my nerdy boy socks.

The Santa Clause

Okay, as Christmas movies's fine.

Josie and the Pussycats

I remember being excited when this was coming out. It was a bit of a disappointment though. All the ads! Argh!

The Village
The Village(2004)

So it scares me, yet it does make you think. Bryce Dallas Howard is so perfect for these movies.

An American Tail

I actually own this. It's a bit depressing for a cartoon, but "Somewhere Out There" can make one all warm and fuzzy inside.

Charlotte's Web

Oh, so sweet. Taught me the term "magnum opus."


I enjoy a Bewitched rerun now and then. This was a different take on it.

Lady in the Water

Props to my uncle on this one. It was a bit unexpected. Not at all scary, but rather thought-provoking.

Rumor Has It
Rumor Has It(2005)

Okay, isn't it weird to sleep with someone who until minutes go you thought was your father? Answer: yeah, it is.

Starsky & Hutch

Oh jeez. Sorta funny, sorta stupid.

Jerry Maguire

I've heard it described as a romantic comedy disguised as a sports movie, which isn't far from the truth. Not a problem for me. Plus I actually like Tom Cruise in this role.

Blue Crush
Blue Crush(2002)

I never really jumped on the Kate Bosworth bandwagon. Wait, did she ever get one?

Annie Hall
Annie Hall(1977)

Woody Allen is crazy, but Diane Keaton is cool. It works.

Finding Neverland

This was really good. I love the Peter Pan story, and Johnny and Kate are so good in this.

Two Weeks Notice

It was funny but a lot like junk food: good at the time, but doesn't stay with you.

Shall We Dance

It was an odd premise. Like he wasn't really having an affair, just learning to dance...from J.Lo. Right.

Blank Check
Blank Check(1994)

Oh man. I saw this. Underwhelming, it was.

Father of the Bride: Part II

I just saw this on TV. So corny! But I used to like it when I was younger.

Enemy of the State

An action movie I actually enjoyed. I must like Will Smith.

The Land Before Time

These were super cute. Not my personal favorites, but cute.

Jurassic Park

Not really my thing.

Ocean's Twelve

It probably wasn't as good as the first one. They tried to make it even bigger, which was difficult. Julia Roberts pretending to be...Julia Roberts was a bit weird too.


Okay, I'll admit the "Scotty Doesn't Know" song is funny. But seriously, I didn't need the full-frontal shot.

The Breakfast Club

I know this is supposed to be the classic John Hughes, but I like Pretty In Pink and Sixteen Candles better. Of course, some moments are classic.

The Phantom of the Opera

Some of my friends really love this, but I thought I would like it a lot more. I don't know, I just didn't get emotionally invested in it. Great music, of course.

My Best Friend's Wedding

It was quite awhile ago that I saw this, but I just remember being enraged that Julia doesn't get the guy at the end. Argh!

Runaway Bride

Okay, it's fluffy, but if I haven't seen it for awhile and it's on TBS...sure, I'll watch.

Under the Tuscan Sun

It's pretty mellow-paced, but if I'm in the right mood, it's perfect. Diane Lane is awesome. Oh, and how cool that it was directed by a woman?

Empire Records

It's a pretty silly movie, but worth a viewing. The stoner guy is probably the best part.

Sleeping Beauty

We could never find this in stores when I was a kid! It is pretty cool though. The fairies are awesome.

The Princess Bride

It is indeed a classic. I would probably have loved it as a little girl. Sadly I didn't see it until I was older, but still super cute.

The Goonies
The Goonies(1985)

I think I thought it was okay, and that the older brother was cute or something.


I loved the musical on stage, but then the movie was a disappointment.

Jingle All the Way

Christmas movies can go horribly wrong. Case in point.

Romy and Michele's High School Reunion

So the whole pretending they invented post-its gag is classic, but otherwise it's just okay.

The Aristocats

Not one of THE best Disney movies, but okay. (Why are Duchess's three kittens all different colors, hmmmm?)

Secret Window

I'm the wimpiest of wimps, so this actually kind of scared me. Sort of good though.

The Rock
The Rock(1996)

Okay, watched it at a friend's house and actually was quite entertaining. Sean Connery doesn't need weapons. Sean Connery is a family man.

Spice World
Spice World(1998)

The whole point of this movie was to lust after their awesome tour bus (which was so much wider than any bus could possibly be, no?). Oh, but in their time, Spice Girls were awesome.

Patch Adams
Patch Adams(1998)

Gosh, my memory's a bit fuzzy on this one which I suppose means it wasn't so very memorable. Tear-jerker?

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

I don't love it as much as some, but the music is good. "Satanic mechanic," hee hee.

Blast From the Past

It's an interesting concept. For some reason I'm not a huge Brendan Fraser fan, but he does well in this role.


I've seen it. It was indeed pretty fun. Not as good a spoof as, say, Saved, but...

Bringing Down the House

I'm sorry, but I hated this movie.

Inspector Gadget

I saw it once as a kidlet. Kind of stupid.


Like a Disney movie with slight swearing. Weird.

The Emperor's New Groove

I've only seen it once.

Beauty and the Beast - The Enchanted Christmas

I was given this as a gift. It was cool the way it took place within the first movie, but still unnecessary.

Friday Night Lights

Message: You can try as hard as you possibly can and come in SECOND. Ah! I waited for that!

Nacho Libre
Nacho Libre(2006)

Too much Jack Black in spandex and really only one good laugh.

Center Stage
Center Stage(2000)

There are better dance movies. Like Save the Last Dance, for instance.

Ever After: A Cinderella Story

You have to be in a pretty sappy romantic mood, and then this is perfect. If not, there's a lot of serious discussion and fighting.

The Lion King 1 1/2

Really unnecessary as I recall.

The Lion King II: Simba's Pride

Another of the okay sequels, but not the best.


It's one of those movies that you can tell is superbly made, but it's just so darn depressing. it made me interested in his music though, and everyone should see Jamie Foxx's performance.

Sixteen Candles

I appreciate it's length, and Anthony Michael Hall is classic nerd.

The Bourne Supremacy

Just a fraction away from as good as the original.

She's All That

It's a little too cliche, even by my teen movie standards.

The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the Sea

One of Disney's better unnecessary sequels, but still not top-notch.

Pride and Prejudice

It's super long, but it's got Colin Firth so who really cares? A very faithful adaptation.

Pretty in Pink

Probably my favorite John Hughes movie, although Sixteen Candles is good for a laugh. I love John Cryer as Duckie.


The music is great, but the movie itself could have been better.

Remember the Titans

Although I've now seen it enough to be sick of it, I still remember how awesome it was the first couple times.


Not one of the classics in my book.

The Devil Wears Prada

About as good as I expected. The clothes were cute, the music was catchy, the plot was predictable.

The Haunting
The Haunting(1999)

Oh, man. This was bad. I am a horror film wimp, and I was bored.


Viggo will always be Aragorn to me. I'm so sorry.

Never Been Kissed

This is the awesomeness that is Drew Barrymore.

The Break-Up
The Break-Up(2006)

I was hoping for more laughs and less cringing at the constant arguments taking place.

The Santa Clause 2

Oh, jeez, I actually saw this.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

It gives me a giggle, especially when the computer gives the ultimate answer, the crowd goes silent, and then one British guy yells, "42?!!!"


I love me some John Cusack, although this is a rather odd plot.

The Secret Garden

I think I was jealous of the girl for having the two boys fighting for her attetnion. What a kid.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure

Bill and Ted may be stupid, but it's written with intelligent humor...if you can figure that one out.

Mary Poppins
Mary Poppins(1964)

I love Julie Andrews. It's fun to see her sort of be the opposite type nanny than Fraulein Maria but still be awesome.


As I recall, a pretty sweet flick.


I don't even think I liked it much as a little kid.

Coyote Ugly
Coyote Ugly(2000)

Okay, I've seen parts of it. It didn't seem too enthralling.

Back to the Future

I catch this on the tellie from time to time. You have to see it sometime in your life. The whole plotline with his parents as teenagers is classic.

Mr. Deeds
Mr. Deeds(2002)

Pretty stupid, even for Adam Sandler.

Shallow Hal
Shallow Hal(2001)

It has its funny moments, and actually a good message behind it.

How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days

Not bad, but not Bridget Jones calliber either.

Stuart Little

Michael J. Fox was born to do this voice, I swear. It's tre tre adorable.

101 Dalmatians

I went through a phase where this was big. It wouldn't go in my top five Disney films, ten?

Just Like Heaven

It was so much better than I was expecting. As I recall, I was hugging a pillow on my friend's couch, quite concerned that they wouldn't get together at the end. Silly goose.

Legally Blonde 2 - Red, White & Blonde

I recall going to this for someone's birthday. *grin* It was pretty funny.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

It's rather slow, but definitely good enough to get me interested in the next two.

Bring It On
Bring It On(2000)

There was a week or so when I watched this every day. It seemed like the coolest thing at the time. What can I say? I was young. Still, a classic teen show.

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back

I don't know. I was making fun of it the whole time. But it rocks for that purpose!


This was not one of my favorite Disney flicks, but it's definitely better than some of the stuff they've put out. Good music.

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

My least fave of the HP adaptations, but it was cool at the time.

Free Willy
Free Willy(1993)

Quite the popular film back in the day. Was it awesome? Nah. Decent? Sure.

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

I watched it once, but again not one I have strong memories of. It was...fine?

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban

My favorite Harry Potter movie yet. Alfonso Cuaren came the closest of any director to what I feel the tone of the books is.


I know I saw it once, but it must not have been super memorable.

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

It wasn't as good as the first, of course. Also not as funny as the book. Still, Bridget is Bridget, and I lurve her.

Uptown Girls
Uptown Girls(2003)

It was decent, but Brittany Murphy is so dumb at the beginning that it's hard to feel bad for her.

Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi

I have trouble taking these seriously, but they're good fun.

Ice Age
Ice Age(2002)

The first one was a hoot.

Anchorman - The Legend Of Ron Burgundy

Most be a guy thing. i wasn't too impressed.


This was pure romance to me when I was a wee girl.

What Women Want

It's a funny gag.

Pearl Harbor
Pearl Harbor(2001)

It's way long, but Josh Hartnett is hot. I think I cried in the theater three different times.

Dirty Dancing

It's a wee bit cheesy. Other 80s flick are more worth your time.

Alice in Wonderland

Ahhhh! So creepy for a little kid!

Just Married
Just Married(2003)

I think I thought this was sweet when I saw it at age fourteen or so. Probably not a classic though.

Spider-Man 2
Spider-Man 2(2004)

These are tre tre cool. And Tobey Maguire is my kind of heartthrob.


Never a Bambi fan, to be honest. Too sad, and Thumper is annoying.

The Wizard of Oz

It's a little freaky for a little kid, but I liked it.

The Wedding Planner

Well, Jenn and Matt have decent chemistry, but many things bug me about this movie. Okay, why is she playing an Italian? And why do I kind of wish she would end up with the crazy arranged-marriage guy?

The Bourne Identity

I love you, Jason Bourne! One of the coolest action movies I've seen (not that that's too many, I guess).

The Fast and the Furious

There is only one reason to watch this for a girl like me: Paul Walker.

13 Going on 30

It was a good introduction to Mark Ruffalo. Not the best romantic com ever, but decent.

101 Dalmatians

Eh. The cartoon is better.

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown

It wasn't as funny as the first one. I want more dodo birds!

Daddy Day Care

The kids are adorable. We went in eighth grade for an end-of-the-year treat. Pretty funny.

Legally Blonde

Oh, every girl has to see this movie. Reese has the acting chops to make this a better spoof on the not-so-ditzy blonde than Clueless.

Meet the Parents

I just remember sitting in the theater, laughing until I cried. it's sort of cringe humor though.

Charlie's Angels

The first movie was quite cool. I love girls who kick butt without guns. Also it introduced me to "Baby Got Back."

Billy Madison

I'm sorry men of the world, but Adam Sandler doesn't really do it for me.

Miss Congeniality 2 - Armed and Fabulous

Definitely went downhill from the first one. I mean, a sequel wasn't really necessary. Regina King is pretty funny in it though.

Mrs. Doubtfire

It was so long ago that I saw this, and I mostly just remember that it made me cry.

Monsters, Inc.

Hee hee. How cute. It's worth it just for Boo, and Mike is great too.

Wild Wild West

Not too good, I gotta say.

National Treasure

Oh, Nick Cage, I can't help but love you. Love the historical aspect of this, and the kid who plays the sidekick/helper is two hoots and a holler.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

I think this always kind of scared me as a kid.

Romeo + Juliet

Crazy but cool in its craziness.

Nanny McPhee
Nanny McPhee(2006)

Emma Thompson plus British children plus Colin Firth equals a movie I lurve.

Maid in Manhattan

Sorry J.Lo, pretty stinky.

X-Men: The Last Stand

I know some folks thought it wasn't as good as the others, but I watched them almost all in a row and it seemed to flow. Wolverine kicks butt.

Sweet Home Alabama

Reese is great in this movie. I know it's pretty fluffy, but I liked it better than the person you wrote the Flixster review anyway.


Saw this as a kid. It was a good show, as my stepdad says.


I think I would watch this with my younger male cousin. It was so-so.


You gotta see it once, but there are better teen flicks out there.

Notting Hill
Notting Hill(1999)

Well, I really like Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. I think I've only seen this in bits and pieces on the tellie, but it's cute and funny.

Miss Congeniality

I know I loved it when I first saw it. It's a solid comedy.

Men in Black
Men in Black(1997)

Actually I think this movie is hilarious. Will Smith is a good comedian.

Charlie's Angels - Full Throttle

It was a fun summer flick. Gotta love the girl power. As I recall, maybe not as good as the original?

Lady and the Tramp

It's not my favorite Disney movie, but it's still pretty cute. Those cats were creepy though.

Edward Scissorhands

It's been awhile, but it was a weirdly cool movie.

The Nightmare Before Christmas

As I recall, it was pretty cool. I've only seen it once.

Napoleon Dynamite

The first time, it's just puzzling. The second time, it's hilarious. I'm a fan of randomness.

Men in Black II

I do get a kick out of these movies.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

I love Harry Potter, but the first two movies were not the best. This was an improvement on the first anyway.

X2: X-Men United

Also good, like the first. So sad for Wolverine, losing his lady love.


I do enjoy this trilogy. Iceman is so cute. Hee hee.

Along Came Polly

Pretty silly as I recall.

Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

So so cute! So so sweet! It's a must-see every Christmas season. The almost-end always makes me mad at Willy though.

The Incredibles

I thought this was so cool visually, and a cute kid story too.

Finding Nemo
Finding Nemo(2003)

Really cute, and you gotta love Dory.

A Walk to Remember

I probably like this more than I should.

The Notebook
The Notebook(2004)

I'm a sucker for this movie, hopeless romantic that I am.

Save the Last Dance

Really good show, and I loooove Julia Stiles.

Love Actually

I expected better, but parts are really cute and/or funny.

Pretty Woman
Pretty Woman(1990)

Every once in awhile I watch this on TV late at night. it's sweet when you're in the right mood.


Funny in parts, draggy in parts.

The Day After Tomorrow

Mostly I made fun of this movie.

The Matrix
The Matrix(1999)

Really I've only seen bits of it, but...

Mr. & Mrs. Smith

Eh. Not bad, not great.

White Chicks
White Chicks(2004)

I didn't pick the movie, but it wasn't as bad as one would expect.

Meet the Fockers

Lots of sex humor, but I still found it hilarious.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

I'm not a big Jim Carrey fan, to be honest.

American Pie
American Pie(1999)

Parts are funny but the acting is subpar.

Shrek 2
Shrek 2(2004)

Okay, Kara, I liked the second movie better!


Gotta love it, especially the romantic parts.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

The third is my fave, but of course this one is awesome too.

The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King

I enjoy these movies overall. The second is my favorite.


Not bad, but the ship sinking takes FOREVER
