Jeanne Eagels
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Splashy bio of the self-destructive stage star of Maugham's Rain. Andrew Sarris says, intriguingly: "There is a point at which brassiness, vulgarity and downright badness becomes virtues - and George Sidney approached that point in Sacaramouche and Jeanne Eagels..."

Jeff, Who Lives at Home
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In his mother's wood-paneled basement, Jeff (Jason Segel) spends his days smoking pot and pondering the big questions. Segel brings a sweet sincerity, but Ed Helms as his brother is so boorish, it's uncomfortable. (K.J.)
Jellyfish

Jennifer's Body
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Writer Diablo Cody (Juno) tries to infuse some girl power into this story of a possessed cheerleader (Megan Fox), creating a mash-up of cheeky horror films and teen-angst movies. But the scares are unconvincing and the laughs scarce. (M.B.)
Jenny
Released: 1970
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Vietnam-era period piece abut a draft-dodging filmmaker. Hopeless. (M.W.)
Jerry Maguire

Jersey Boys
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? Yes
In 1960s New Jersey, a group of childhood friends and small-time criminals (John Lloyd Young, Vincent Piazza, Michael Lomenda) form the chart-topping pop act the Four Seasons. With overly broad characterizations and too much melodrama, this big-screen version of the Broadway musical feels overwrought. (S.R.)
Jersey Girl
Released: 2004
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Jesse James
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The most heroic of the many film incarnations of the James Gang. (M.W.)
Jesus Camp
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this revealing documentary, the children of Protestant Fundamentalists are given the â??Onward, Christian Soldiersâ? treatment at a summer retreat. The film doesnâ??t provide much in the way of context, but its up-close-and-personal look at the scare tactics used to indoctrinate these young souls is an eye-opener. (K.W.)
Jesus is Magic

Jet Li's Fearless
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Li stars as the real-life Chinese martial-arts legend Huo Yuanjia, hotheaded founder of the Jinwu Sports Federation. Heâ??s fabulous in the role, ricocheting from action set-piece to emotional overload and back again. (M.S.)
Jezebel
Released: 1938
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Perhaps the ultimate in Bette's gallery of scarlet women; in one scene, indeed, a scarlet dress she wears to a cotillion ball almost sets the entire plantation afire. A deep-South Civil War melodrama, Jezebel was rushed out by Warners' to steal the thunder from Selznick's mammoth Gone With The Wind publicity machine. For many people, it's better than the film it completed with - including Andre Bazin, who thought Jezebel (along with Stagecoach and Le Jour Se Leve, in the late '30s) showed "the pure symmetry and ripening of classic art ... as perfectly balanced as a wheel..."
JFK
Released: 1991
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Oliver Stone's 1991 thriller about events leading up to President John F. Kennedy's assassination.
Jimmy Carter: Man from Plains
Released: 2007
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Director Jonathan Demme follows the former president on the tour for his controversial book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid. The film suffers from a feeling of sameness, but it’s still an intriguing historical document, full of affectingly candid moments. (K.J.)
Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius
Released: 2001
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
Jindabyne
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Four Australian men go on a weekend fishing trip, discover the corpse of a young woman, and get in trouble for waiting 48 hours to tell the authorities. Gabriel Byrne and Laura Linney are brilliant as the couple whose lives are affected by the incident, but the film ultimately loses its sense of direction. (M.B.)
Jinxed
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Sweet, bosomy and rather addled chanteuse follows her gambler-lover from casino to casino in Reno as he fleeces a young blackjack dealer. In self-defense, the dealer seduces her, after which she gloriously proclaims: "I'll never walk again!" The premises are absurd, and the humor keeps flirting with, winking at or plain groping for bad taste, but the actors and director Don Siegel are so expert at refining this cheap, raw ore that they compensate for every gaucherie in the script. Jinxed is really a Midler vehicle, and her whole personality - vulnerable, goofy, horny, a little desperate, suffused with a kind of radiant, wacked-out optimism - floods the screen.

Jiro Dreams of Sushi
Released: 2011
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
This marvelous documentary takes a riveting look at culinary excellence in a microscopic Tokyo sushi restaurant. The film is a stunning essay about an improbably wide range of topics — work, family, beauty, perfection, ecology. (K.B.)
Jitterbugs
Released: 1943
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Late L & H, still worth watching. The director, Mal St. Clair, was once considered one of Lubitsch's heirs.
