In theaters now:

The Hangover Part II
Short Story:
The Wolfpack is back for the eagerly anticipated sequel to the highest-grossing R-rated comedy of all time. This time around, Phil (Bradley Cooper), Stu (Ed Helms), Alan (Zach Galifianakis) and Doug (Justin Bartha) reunite for Stu's wedding in Thailand. After their wild bachleor party in Las Vegas, Stu wants to keep everything low-key -- but after downing a few beers by a bonfire they wake up the next morning with killer hangovers, no memories and a drug-peddling monkey in their hotel room. Plus, the bride's brother is missing and a Thai drug lord is after them -- so they've got that going for them, which isn't nice.

What They're Saying:
"If you want to avoid plot spoilers for The Hangover Part II, don't watch The Hangover." -- Film.com

"Most of the laughs go down easily. Most." -- TIME magazine 

Good for the Kids?
Leave the kids at home! With raunchy humor and drug use, this is a movie for adults looking for some plentiful summertime laughs.

Kung Fu Panda 2
Short Story:
Beloved animated panda Po (Jack Black) is back to save China from an evil villain (Gary Oldman) threatening to conquer his homeland and destroy kung fu. The audacity! With the help of Master Shifu (Dustin Hoffman), Tigress (Angelina Jolie) and several other kung fu masters, Po must embark on an adventure in order to uncover the secrets of his origin -- and, of course, save the day.

What They're Saying:
"With its mix of vibrant CG and classical elements, the movie dazzles." -- Philadelphia Inquirer

"That expressiveness combined with the talented voice cast brings a nuance, a sense of reality that is hard to achieve in animation." -- Los Angeles Times

Good for the Kids?
With rave reviews and an all-star cast, this is a perfect movie pick for the whole family. Po's comedic, action-packed adventure will keep the kids -- and adults -- entertained and laughing.

In case you missed:

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Short Story:
Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is back for the fourth chapter of the epic Pirates of the Caribbean franchise! Joining the iconic pirate on his quest to find the Fountain of Youth is Angelica (Penelope Cruz), a fiesty con artist -- and, as it happens -- Jack's former flame. Of course, the duo must survive dealings with the nefarious pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane), Jack's frenemy Captain Barbosa (Geoffrey Rush) and some not-so-nice (maneating) mermaids if they want to bathe in those eternal-life-giving waters.

What They're Saying:
"Not as clever as the first, as fun as the second or as epic as the third, On Stranger Tides is still a decently fun swashbuckler. It just isn't a very good one." -- Flixist.com

"Its one real act of piracy is stealing away your excitement." -- Entertainment Weekly

Good for the Kids?
With intense action sequences, this adventure flick is rated PG-13 and a good pick for teenagers looking to keep tabs on Jack Sparrow's latest shenanigans. But with zombies and some decidedly nasty mermaids, this is one isn't for the tykes.
