ReelViews for PG-13 movies

Sort by:
2012

If, as is believed in certain fringe circles, the world will come to an end in 2012, at least there will be no more movies like this one made. Perhaps the strangest thing about 2012 is that the bad parts of the film are among the most enjoyable, b...

21

21 is a perfect example of how something that's "based" on a true story can nevertheless exist mainly in the realm of fiction. While it's true that the source material for the movie, Ben Mezrich's Bringing Down the House relates events that actuall...

27 Dresses

I have no idea why the people who decide such matters have elected to release this perfect Valentine's Day movie in the middle of January. Perhaps it's counter-programming for Cloverfield. Whatever the case, 27 Dresses is an illustration of what ...

3 Days to Kill

How did 3 Days to Kill, which doesn’t have the worst imaginable premise, turn out this bad? The problem starts with the screenplay, co-credited to Adi Hasak and over-the-top action aficionado Luc Besson. Still, although the more serious aspects...

33, The

Some material is inherently better suited to documentary (rather than feature film) treatment. That’s the case with The 33, a “based on fact” account of the 2010 Chilean mining disaster that riveted news-watching populations worldwi...

6 Below: Miracle on the Mountain

6 Below is the second stranded-on-a-mountain yarn we have gotten in two weeks and, although this one is based on a true story, that doesn’t make it any better than the fictional The Mountain Between Us. In fact, without the considerable tal...

Perhaps it says something about the nihilistic perspective of modern society, but the post-apocalyptic story is becoming a popular genre; not since the height of the Cold War have movies been so obsessed with the end of civilization. No longer res...
