REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..the film is more a patched-together collection of anecdotes than a coherent story..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
“..many scenes are amusing, particularly those that humanize and/or humiliate and/or dump trash on Rodrick..”
by Amy Biancolli [San Francisco Chronicl]
“..like its predecessors, satisfy "Wimpy Kid" fans, but a bigger problem -- what to do when your young actors grow faster than your characters? -- lies ahead for Fox..”
by Lael Loewenstein [Variety]
2 of 5

“..I think it's possible that all tween audiences, wimpy or not, deserve better than this..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..ends the series' winning streak, or at least slows it down to a panting, dog-day crawl..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Los Angeles Times]
2.5 of 4

“..Days isn't interested in going beyond that premise, so don't expect much in terms of kids learning the value of labor, first love or sibling relationships. Little Miss Sunshine, this isn't..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..as the sort of mischief that felt cutely wise-alecky up to this point often just doesn't work here..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
2 of 5

“.."Dog Days" wants to have fun, but doesn't know that the best fun happens when you don't plan it..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 5

“.."Dog Days" is another step in the right direction, even if there is still plenty of room for improvement..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

CHRISTIAN MINGLE :

“..a sweet romantic comedy that is faith friendly..”
by Donna Rolfe [The Dove Foundation]

MALL :

“.."Mall" is definitely worth a look..”
by Billy Tatum [AXS]

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

“.."Dark Was the Night" doesn't break the monster movie mold, but does fill it to capacity with eerie atmosphere and creeping chills elevated by terrific acting..”
by Ian Sedensky [Culture Crypt]

BIG DRIVER :

“..if you do enjoy the once in a while thriller, and like to see a story that pushes you to think, then Big Driver is for you..”
by Nathan M Rose [FlickDirect]

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

HOUSEBOUND :

“..creepy, silly, inventive, darkly funny and, at one point, mind-blowingly bloody..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]
