Tiger Eyes

Proof we need an alt-MPAA rating system—no one over 13 allowed—this Judy Blume adaptation is merely an insufferable YA lint trap, about a dadless teen (Willa Holland) moping around Santa Fe, bickering with her elders and dating a hunky-yet-jailbaiting Pueblo guy (Tatanka Means). Directed by Ma Blume’s little scooter Lawrence, mainly because she said so, this pubescent navel-gazer has only its star Holland (Brian De Palma’s stepdaughter) to recommend it, not for her acting but only for her undeniable corn-fed–Emmanuelle Béart looks. She’s better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick—but only by a small margin.
