100% Bright Lights: Starring Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds (2017) This is the film we have - one that is likely to leave those who loved Reynolds or Fisher loving them even more.‐ USA Today

1.5/4 19% Dirty Dancing (2017) No matter how badly you sing, you can't be as tone deaf as this movie.‐ USA Today

3.5/4 76% Hairspray Live! (2016) Brimming with great songs by Marc Shaiman and Scott Wittman, opened up and spread out by directors Alex Rudzinski and Kenny Leon, this latest live NBC musical from Craig Zadan and Neil Meron was their best, most entertaining work yet.‐ USA Today

2/4 57% Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love (2016) It isn't very good, and it isn't nearly as good as Parton deserves.‐ USA Today

28% The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again (2016) This Fox remake is briskly staged and competently done, but it's haunted by a sterility and a forced cheerfulness that goes against the show's grain.‐ USA Today

3/4 83% Confirmation (2016) There is nothing about Confirmation that's transformative, but it's solid work about an important moment in our history. And for TV purposes, it's a work that allows Washington to show what a fine actor she can be.‐ USA Today

No Score Yet A Ken Burns film about Jackie Robinson might seem inevitable, but that doesn't make it any less powerful - or any less welcome.‐ USA Today

92% Grease: Live! (2016) Some technical glitches in such an ambitious production are inevitable... But those were small problems in a production that was otherwise incredibly impressive visually - and one that sprang to life at the end.‐ USA Today

91% The Wiz Live! (2015) Now that's how you ease a TV musical on down the road to success.‐ USA Today

3.5/4 90% Bessie (2015) Latifah doesn't just make us believe in Bessie Smith's claim to fame. She makes us feel for every gifted African-American singer and actor, from Smith to Latifah herself, who hasn't been given the roles and nurturing his or her talents deserve.‐ USA Today

89% Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas (2014) The story is sweet, and the special is still a good choice for family viewing.‐ USA Today

50% How Murray Saved Christmas (2014) The very multicultural Murray is one of those rare holiday specials the entire family can enjoy for years to come.‐ USA Today

56% Peter Pan Live! (2014) Unlike Martin, she's [Allison Williams] available. And unlike Underwood, she can act -- which is a major improvement, and one that allows Peter Pan to be counted as a success.‐ USA Today

3/4 94% The Normal Heart (2014) You will learn lessons that should not be forgotten about the fear, foolishness, prejudice and intentional blindness that doomed millions to die who might otherwise have been saved. But the anger that lesson should provoke is either muted or missing.‐ USA Today

70% Barrymore (2012) Think of it as one great performer saluting another.‐ USA Today

92% Herblock: The Black & the White (2013) In print, on the Internet and through multiple mobile platforms, newspapers solider on, but editorial cartoonists are an endangered species. Watching Herblock may show you why they're worth saving.‐ USA Today

2/4 44% The Sound Of Music Live! (2013) The downside was a certain flatness to the sound mix, a disconnect between the voices and the orchestra and an emptiness that caused the few jokes the script provided to land with a thud. ‐ USA Today

38% Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight (2013) All in all, it's a worthy subject to be sure. It just probably isn't the subject you might have expected.‐ USA Today

60% Mockingbird Lane (2012) This odd introduction for this proposed series is either a burn-off or a tryout and considering the day and time, burn-off is most likely.‐ USA Today

61% Clear History (2013) If you're a fan of Curb Your Enthusiasm, think of this as an extended version of Curb. If you're not, History will not convert you.‐ USA Today

3.5/4 95% Behind the Candelabra (2013) Buffed to a typical HBO high gloss, Candelabra is a visual feast. It shines brightest in those moments where it captures the rhythms of a relationship in its first blush of affection and its seemingly inevitable collapse.‐ USA Today

2.5/4 50% Phil Spector (2013) If you are willing and able to take it on its own fictional terms, it does work as a well-acted legal drama, though even on that level, you're better off watching The Good Wife.‐ USA Today

4/4 No Score Yet This is a series you'll want to watch -- and maybe even rewatch -- each week.‐ USA Today

2.5/4 22% Alice (2008) You're left with a woman whose main quest is unsuccessful, and a movie that's glum, long and devoid of any sense of wonder.‐ USA Today

No Score Yet Yes Virginia (2010) One of the best Christmas specials of the last decade.‐ USA Today

3/4 68% Game Change (2012) Pleasure, you may get out of Game Change. Truth will be in the eye of the beholder.‐ USA Today
