The Bounty Hunter
Short Story:
A bounty hunter (Gerard Butler) thinks he's hit the jackpot when he's assigned to track down his bail-jumping ex-wife (Jennifer Aniston). But they soon realize they're not only fighting with each other, they're fighting for their lives.

What They're Saying:
"As formula films go, The Bounty Hunter is more enjoyable than most, even if it packs in as many cliches as any." -- Arizona Republic

"Aniston doesn’t bring her old A-game to this. But at least she’s not quiet and reserved and no-energy, her approach to too many roles of late." -- Orlando Sentinel

Good for Kids?
The sexual content makes this PG-13 film best for teens and adults.

Diary of a Wimpy Kid
Short Story:
In this big-screen adaptation of the best selling graphic novel, a middle schooler goes from wimpy to cool.

What They're Saying:
"An amusing romp through the awkward years of middle school." -- Variety

"It's nimble, bright and funny. It doesn't dumb down. It doesn't patronize. It knows something about human nature. It isn't as good as A Christmas Story, as few movies are, but it deserves a place in the same sentence." -- RogerEbert.com

Good for Kids?
Kids will love this PG flick, and parents won't mind tagging along.

Repo Men
Short Story:
In this futuristic thriller, the invention of mechanical organs have drastically improved medical science. But when recipients can't pay their bills, repo men (Jude Law and Forest Whitaker) are sent out to recover the organs.

What They're Saying:
"The movie goes completely insane, in the best way possible." -- Miami Herald

"If you aren't too repulsed by the general ultra-violence and horror aspects, you're in for some treats of the gross out variety that could send you reeling to the lobby." -- Cinema Signals

Good for Kids?
Filled with blood and gore, this R-rated film is too violent for some adults, let alone children.

In case you missed...

Remember Me
Short Story:
Two college students (Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin) who've suffered family tragedies find solace and love in each other.

What They're Saying:
"A strong romantic drama in which Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Ravin really shine." - Hollywood Reporter

"There's a distinctly bittersweet undertow to the picture that draws you in and helps you overlook the film's weaknesses." - Miami Herald

Good for Kids?
Young Twilight fans will be eager to get in line, but the subjects are too mature for the under-13 set.

Watch the trailer!

Green Zone
Short Story:
When an American military officer (Matt Damon) in the Iraq war discovers an elaborate government cover-up, he must fight to discover the truth.

What They're Saying: 
"It's certainly interesting to see what's been reported on the manipulation of information played out as drama, and the acting is uniformly good." - Arizona Republic

"An energetic, frenzied thriller -- [director] Paul Greengrass-style -- set in Iraq in the chaotic post-invasion days." - The Hollywood Reporter

Good for Kids?
This R-rated war thriller is for 18 and older.

Our Family Wedding
Short Story:
When a newly engaged couple (America Ferrera and Lance Gross) announce their upcoming wedding, they just want to focus on their happiness. But will their overly competitive fathers get in the way?

What They're Saying:
"[Director Rick] Famuyiwa has made a mostly charming movie despite its cliche milieu." - Associated Press

"The culture clash is muy muted in this alternately sweet and dumb comedy." - The Hollywood Reporter

Good for Kids?
Rated PG-13 for some sexual content and brief language, this comedy is fine for teens and adults.
