Billy Elliot (
Elegant pics, tons of festival accolades and lush music create a classy setting for the coolest part of the site: interviews with Jamie Bell, the film’s engaging 14-year-old star. Website Grade B+

Red Planet (
Beeps, lights, and humorless instructions set the tone for this site, apparently designed to mimic NASA-like bureaucracy. The liveliest feature profiles Amee, the robot star. Website Grade C

Rugrats in Paris — The Movie (
Eclairs fly as a freckled brat tosses a gob of green goo that covers your computer screen. And we say oui to the Le Food Frenzy game. Website Grade B
