Now Playing? No
Josie (Rachael Leigh Cook), Melody (Tara Reid) and Val (Rosario Dawson) are three small-town girl musicians determined to take their rock band out of their garage and straight to the top, while remaining true to their look, style and sound. They get a record deal which brings fame and fortune but soon realize they are pawns of two people who want to control the youth of America.

Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Dwayne Johnson crash-lands on a fantastical island in the generic sequel to 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. A frenetic pace provides distraction from the absence of an actual story. (S.R.)

Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Dwayne Johnson crash-lands on a fantastical island in the generic sequel to 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth. A frenetic pace provides distraction from the absence of an actual story. (S.R.)
Journey For Margaret
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Middling inspirational World War II piece about blitz victims, but it has an astonishing performance by five-year-old Margaret O'Brien.
Journey from the Fall
Released: 2006
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
This intimate epic follows a South Vietnamese family dealing with the horrors that followed the U.S. withdrawal in the 1970s. It’s a magnificent saga that shows the father sent off to a Vietcong reeducation camp and the rest of the family launched on a harrowing journey as boat people. (K.W.)
Journey Into Fear
Released: 1942
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A Mercury Theater production of the Eric Ambler espionage thriller. Noir-ish fun. Welles appears as a glowering Turk; he directed all his own scenes. The rest were by Norman Foster, of the Mr. Moto movies and Disney's "Davy Crockett" series.
Journey into the Night
Released: 1921
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Journey of Hope
Released: 1990
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Brendan Fraser plays a scientist who discovers a bizarre lost world in this latest iteration of the Jules Verne novel. Without all the fun visual effects, the characters and screenplay would fall flat. (M.B.)
Journey to the Center of the Earth (Digital 3D)
Released: 2008
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Brendan Fraser plays a scientist who discovers a bizarre lost world. Catch this in digital 3-D, because without all the fun visual effects the characters and screenplay fall flat. (M.B.)

Joyeux Noel
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Joyful Noise
Released: 2012
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Singers (Queen Latifah, Dolly Parton) squabble as their gospel choir competes on a national circuit. Some of the music is good, but this backstage musical is done in by too many dull characters and silly subplots. (K.B.)
Joys Of Living
Released: 1938
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Love and sex among the careless rich; minor but delightful high screwball comedy. (M.W.)
Ju Dou
Released: 1990
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Juan of the Dead
Released: 2011
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No

Judge Hardy and Son
Released: 1939
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Irrepressible juvenile is counseled by judicious dad; from what was undoubtedly the most popular long-running movie series (at least until James Bond). (M.W.)
Judge Horton and The Scottsboro Boys
Released: 1976
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Scottsboro Boys "rape" trial - one of the great causes celebres of the '30s - re-created.
Judge Priest
Released: 1934
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Irvin S. Cobb's renowned rural jurist, dispensing equal parts salty wit and rough justice in a Southern town still awash in memories of the Civil War, charmingly incarnated by Will Rogers. He was the most popular male movie star in the U.S. at the time, and this is his best performance. It's also probably the best pre-Informer film of John Ford's.
Judgement in Stone

Rated:
Now Playing? No
Judy Berlin

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer
Released: 2011
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
A third-grader (Jordana Beatty) has plans for an awesome summer, but when her parents leave her in the care of a quirky aunt (Heather Graham), it feels like only awfulness will fill those long days. There’s nothing remotely authentic about childhood in this adaptation of Megan McDonald's youth fiction books. (S.R.)
Juggernaut
Released: 1974
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A Luxury liner, a gang of terrorists, and a bomb-defusing team - one of whom has the shakes. There are a few "disaster" movies that are actually good; this is one of them. (M.W.)
Juju Factory
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Researching an African neighborhood in Brussels, a writer struggles with his editor.
Jules and Jim
Released: 1961
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Love is triangular in François Truffaut's classic.
Julia
Released: 1977
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Adapted from a fragment of Lillian Hellman's autobiographical Pentimento: the tale of an adored friend of her youth, her idealism, her perseverance and her destruction in the Nazi rip tide. The direction, acting, musical score and cinematography are impeccable - and Vanessa Redgrave has some spine-tingling moments as Julia - but the film has a frosty, decorate quality. From Alvin Sargent's portrait of Dashiell Hammett and Hellman, you'd never guess that the two of them were the models for the devil-may-care wisecracking Nick and Nora Charles - nor does the movie's Dorothy Parker seem capable of telling a good joke. Sargent is sober, serious, "committed"; for him, theme is everything, moral fervor is paramount.
Julie & Julia
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In Nora Ephron’s comedy, Julie (Amy Adams) cooks her way through Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking while, in a parallel story set in the 1950s, Child herself (Meryl Streep) finds her vocation as a chef. Adams is a mousy, grouchy irritant, but Streep’s half of the movie is irresistible. (K.J.)
