Bees shouldn't be able to fly! Their bodies are too big for their wings, and yet...This is a cute film which kids will love. It has a few lines for the adults too. Who wouldn't love a newspaper headline which reads: "Frisbee Hits Hive!" This of course is a real problem in the bee world. The [...]

As a movie designed to appeal to children, "Shark Tale" has a message that is morally fishy. First, Oscar the fish is an opportunist always looking to attain the easy life the easy way. He struggles with a gambling problem and borrows money from a mobster shark. Second, a great deal of deception [...]

Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason

November 12, 2004
With its theme alone, this film would not be family-friendly, but Universal made it even more so with its tremendous volume of foul language. The theme deals primarily with the relationship, both sexual and relational, of Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy. It seems that they really liked to focus on the [...]
