Dinner for Schmucks
Short Story:
Tim (Paul Rudd), a successful IRS executive and a group of his cronies gather for what is to be an exciting and eventful dinner. All are allowed one guest for the event. So, Tim decides to bring along Barry (Steve Carell), another IRS employee. Little does Barry know, he is just a pawn in an unfriendly game. Each week, Tim and his friends invite the dumbest person they can find; the person with the most simple minded guest wins.

What They're Saying:
"When Hollywood decides to remake French farce by Francis Veber, the result can be a champagne cocktail or pâté de merde. Dinner for Schmucks falls somewhere in the middle. What makes the soufflé rise is the actors." - Rolling Stone

"Like a four-star desert at the end of a hit-or-miss four-course meal, the finale is worth the wait." - Orlando Sentinel

Good For Kids?
Rated PG-13, this comedy may not tickle your little one's funny bone, but the rest of the family will get a kick.

A grief stricken young man (Charlie St. Cloud) must learn to cope with the death of his younger brother (Sam).

This routine unravels when a girl comes into Charlie's life.  Ultimately, he will have to choose between the promise he made to Sam and moving on with the girl he loves.

What They're Saying:
"This handsomely shot melodrama has a twist too peculiar to dismiss as some two-bit Nicholas Sparks weepie." - The Village Voice

"Zac Efron is going places as an actor of value. But he deserves better movies than Charlie St. Cloud." - New York Observer

Good For Kids?
Charlie St. Cloud is a weighty drama better suited for the big kids.

After CIA agent Evelyn Salt (Angelina Jolie) is accused of being a Russian spy, she goes on the run, using her years of tactical training to elude capture. Not only will she have to prove her innocence, but her identity as well.

"The Fugitive meets Mission: Impossible in a post-Bourne era, with one thing all those movies lacked: (Angelina) Jolie." - Metromix.com

Ramona and Beezus
Short Story:
The adventures of Ramona Quimby and her big sister Beezus (Selena Gomez) jump from the small pages to the big screen in this film based on the classic books by Beverly Cleary. This time around, the ever-mischievous Ramona puts herself up to the task of saving her family's home. A ball of energy and catastrophe, it's no surprise when Ramona's wild imagination brings about more than she bargained for.

What They're Saying:
"We no longer all watch the same TV shows, we are no longer as innocent, and the world of Klickitat is fading into timeless nostalgia. Ramona and Beezus is a sweet salute." - Chicago Sun-Times

"It won't change anyone's world, but it'll keep kids happy -- and cool -- for a couple of hours." - New York Daily News

Good For Kids?
A family favorite; moms will feel nostalgic and the kids will fall in love with the Quimby sisters for the first time.

Inception
Short Story:
Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Dom Cobb, a thief skilled in the art of extraction -- that is, stealing secrets hidden deep in the subconscious during the dream state. Cobb's talent has made him a commodity in the treacherous world of espionage, but he's now a fugitive, and after losing everything he loves, he's given a second chance at a normal life. But first, he must complete one last crime: inception. Instead of extracting a secret, he has to implant one. With his team of specialists, Cobb attempts the unthinkable, but no amount of training can prepare them for what awaits.

What They're Saying:
"In this smart sci-fi puzzle box, director Christopher Nolan transports the audience to a dreamscape that begins with the familiar and then takes a radical, imaginative leap." - Us Weekly

"Like a dream, Nolan’s film fades swiftly in the light -- but while it lasts, it feels like there’s nothing more important to decipher." - Time Out

Good For Kids?
This sci-fi tale may fly over the heads of young viewers, but it's perfect for fans of suspenseful thrillers.
