Too many films aimed at children lack a sense of wonder, which is one reason I like 'Rise of the Guardians.'

It’s easy to see how 'Rock of Ages' became a crowd-pleaser on Broadway, where audiences got caught up in the energy of 80s hit songs performed live. The film adaptation (credited, astonishingly, to three screenwriters, including the show’s creator Chris D’Arenzio) is a dreary collection of clichés and caricatures that doesn’t have one ounce of honest emotion in its elongated 123 minutes.
