Hall Pass
Short Story:
Owen Wilson
and Jason Sudeikis star as Rick and Fred, two married best friends who catch a fitful case of the seven-year itch. When their wives (played by Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate) have enough of their husbands' restless behavior, they offer them a "hall pass": one week of freedom to pursue other women with no marital consequences. Rick and Fred jump at the chance -- but, unfortunately for the two out-of-touch pals, opportunity isn't exactly knocking at their door.

What They're Saying:
"Hall Pass is a hilariously unnaughty movie; you know exactly where it's going." - Time Out New York

"Hall Pass, a light comedy of horny marital woe from directors Peter and Bobby Farrelly, makes a novel statement about the sex wars: It says that they're essentially over. And that the guys -- in case there was any lingering suspense about it -- have lost." - Entertaiment Weekly

Good For Kids?
It's a crude bromantic comedy about guys chasing girls, so we say: "Llet the kids pass on Hall Pass."

Drive Angry
Short Story:
Nicolas Cage, who has previously driven while angry in Gone in 60 Seconds, is back behind the wheel for another fast-paced action flick. Here he plays Milton, a wayward man who escapes the pits of hell to track down the men who killed his daughter and have now kidnapped is granddaughter.

What They're Saying:
"Drive Angry is a mish-mash of familiar elements, but it's all lashed together with such relentless drive, blunt invention and pitch-black wit that it's hard not to get dragged along by it." - Time Out

"A non-stop riot of gratuitous sex, full-on violence, gory gunfights and explosive car crashes make this fun chase-and-chiller combo a high-energy trash extravaganza." - Radio Times

Good For Kids?
Drive Angry has a fair share of raunchy violence that's far from kid-friendly.

In case you missed...

I Am Number Four
Short Story:
John Smith (Alex Pettyfer) is not your average teen; in fact, one might call him an alien (though he looks human). He is a fugitive on the run, constantly changing his identity to avoid those that will stop at nothing to kill him. Now, tucked away in a small Ohio town, John begins to encounter new life-altering experiences, such as his first love (Dianna Agron), powerful new abilities and a connection to others that share his unique destiny.

What They're Saying:
"Director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia) knows his action beats, and he stages some fierce fights in the third act." - Orlando Sentinel

"I Am Number Four is like a good episode of Smallville: You may feel a bit silly watching it if you're past high-school age, but you just might have a good time." - Arizona Republic

Good For Kids?
Action, romance and a cutie-pie lead? We're betting tweens will lap up this supernatural thriller.

UnKnown
Short Story:
When Dr. Martin Harris (Liam Neeson) wakes up from a coma, he discovers that another man (Aidan Quinn) has assumed his identity. Strangely, not even his wife (January Jones) recognizes him. After pleading his case to disbelieving authorities, Martin finds himself alone, tired and on the run from mysterious assassins. It is only after he finds a true ally (Diane Kruger) that Martin begins to uncover secrets to his true identity.

What They're Saying:
"Neeson's always-intelligent screen presence, his nuance and gravitas, help elevate Unknown beyond its preposterous elements." - Associated Press

"We're spun through parking garages, dance clubs and good old-fashioned car chases; Unknown is probably the movie The Tourist wanted to be, if it had a pulse." - Time Out New York

Good For Kids?
Unknown's high-energy suspense sure will keep the kids guessing, but it's probably a bit violent -- and confusing -- for those under 13.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son
Short Story:
Martin Lawrence
is back as FBI agent Malcolm Turner and his undercover alter-ego Big Momma in this comedic thriller. When Malcolm's teenage stepson Trent (Brendan T. Jackson) witnesses a murder at an all-girl performing arts school, the two team up as Big Momma and coed Charmaine to crack the case.

What They're Saying:
"The well-established Big Momma combination of cheap and cheesy chuckles, sex-obsessed banter, and slapstick so broad even the biggest of mommas could easily hide behind it." - Radio Times

"It's a marginal improvement on previous outings, if only because Lawrence is slightly lower in the mix." - Total Film

Good For Kids?
Rich in slapstick dialogue, the jokes in Big Momma may be too overwrought with broad humor.
