    'Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix': The magic is gone

  • Movie review: I Love You, Beth Cooper -- 1 out of 5 stars

    Oh, to have teenage kids just so I could forbid them to see I Love You, Beth Cooper. A miscast and misjudged graduation-night comedy, Cooper occasionally -- only occasionally -- wanders into "harmless." Much of the time it's sending bad messages about,...
