Death at a Funeral
Short Story:
In this riotous comedy, a family (Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan) comes together to lay their deceased husband and father to rest -- but the reunion reveals some unexpected truths.

What They're Saying:
"In filling the cast with funny people, none of whom has to carry the picture, [directer Neil] LaBute allows Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock, Loretta Devine, Danny Glover and [James] Marsden to score without trying too hard." - Orlando Sentinel

"Oh, I know a lot of Death at a Funeral is in very bad taste. That's when I laughed the most." - RogerEbert.com

Good for Kids?
Rated R for sexual humor and language, this funny film is for adults only.

Watch the trailer!

Short Story:
This violent comedy (starring Nicolas Cage, Chloe Moretz and Aaron Johnson) tells the story of a gang of young, wannabe superheroes determined to fight crime -- without super powers.

What They're Saying:
"Never as shocking as it thinks it is, as funny as it should be, or as engaged in cultural critique as it could be." - Village Voice

"Kick-Ass is a compendium of all sleazy things, and it sings like a siren to our inner Tarantinos." - New York magazine

Good for Kids?
This violent, R-rated flick may feature kids onscreen, but it's definitely not appropriate for them.

Watch the trailer!

In case you missed...

Date Night
A married couple (Tina Fey and Steve Carell) goes out for a romantic date, but when the evening goes wrong they end up running for their lives.

What They're Saying:
"A romantic comedy with action, edge and genuine chemistry between its leads, Date Night scores a home run." - Variety

"Steve Carell and Tina Fey make a terrific comic pairing in this entertaining if overly familiar comic thriller." - The Hollywood Reporter

Good for Kids?
This PG-13 comedy has crude humor and mild violence. Best for teens and adults.

Watch the trailer!

The Runaways
Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning tell the story of the iconic, all-girl teenage rock group of the '70s.

What They're Saying:
"There hasn't been a movie like The Runaways, one about women rockers that's just as raw and earthy and tough and pitiless as the ones about the men are." - Flick Filosopher

"It explains why kids needed rock 'n' roll, and why the Runaways still mean so much to those who remember them." -San Francisco Chronicle

Good for Kids?
Rated R for drugs and sexuality, this rocker flick is way too mature for Stewart and Fanning's tween Twilight fans.

Watch the trailer!

The Last Song
Short Story:
Based on Nicholas Sparks' best-selling novel, this heartfelt story follows a teenage girl (Miley Cyrus) who spends her summer reconnecting with her father and meeting her first love (Liam Hemsworth).

What They're Saying:
"This sweet-but-sad and fairly predictable coming-of-age story will likely appeal to hordes of Miley Cyrus’ young fans." - Common Sense Media

"All the obvious elements combine to manipulate the audience into a weepy time at the movies -- again." - USA Today

Good for Kids?
It's rated PG, but the heavy subject matter (divorce, abusive relationships) make it best for ages 12 and up.
