How Do You Know
Short Story:
Professional softball player Lisa Jorgenson (Reese Witherspoon) finds herself in the midst a love triangle as two completely different guys (Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd) compete for her affections.

What They're Saying:
"Before it wraps up that question like the obedient Hollywood love story it eventually has to be, How Do You Know takes an unexpectedly candid detour through how incredibly hard just following that directive has become." - Village Voice

"The sad part is that How Do You Know is nowhere near as dumb as it looks. A couple of comic set pieces are inspired -- or would be, if Brooks's timing weren't off." - New York Magazine

Good For Kids?
Although kids may find this film's comedic antics entertaining, this PG-13 comedy is too mature for the little ones.

Tron Legacy
Short Story:

When Sam uncovers the cyber universe his father has been living in for the past 20 years, the two reunite and embark on a dangerous adventure through the digital world of Tron.

What They're Saying:
"Given the movie's graphic pizzazz, the best hippie wisdom Bridges might offer the viewer is: Turn off your mind, relax, and float downstream." - Village Voice

"While 21st-century effects and a cutting-edge dance score make this a stunning virtual ride, the underlying concept feels as far-fetched as ever." - Variety

Good For Kids?

What They're Saying:

The Tourist
Short Story:
In an effort to mend a broken heart, American tourist (Johnny Depp) Frank Tupelo takes an impromptu trip to Europe where he unexpectedly meets the irresistible Elise Clifton-Ward (Angelina Jolie). What begins as an innocent flirtation between the two turns into a daring game of cat-and-mouse in one of the most romantic backdrops in the world -- Paris.

What They're Saying:
"This flick has the kind of stylish backdrop, witty dialogue, topsy-turvy story and headline stars that critics just love." - Cinema Blend

"You go into a movie like The Tourist hoping for a feast of personality from the stars. What you get, in this case, is a waxworks version of chemistry." - Entertainment Weekly

Good For Kids?
The kids won't fall in love with this suspenseful romance.

The Fighter
Short Story:
Mark Wahlberg
stars as popular 1980s boxer "Irish" Micky Ward in this untold story of recovery and triumph. The film details Ward's rocky road to the world light welterweight title and his relationship with his half-brother Dicky Eklund (Christian Bale), a former boxer and recovering drug addict.

What They're Saying:
"Less a boxing drama than a drama with some boxing in it, The Fighter turns Bale loose in a supporting role that dominates director David O. Russell's film." - Associated Press

"There's a certain predictability to The Fighter, yet that's part of the appeal of the fight genre. This one, as thoughtful as it is rousing, scores a TKO." - Entertainment Weekly

Good For Kids?
With its tantalizing fight scenes and explicit language, one ought to keep The Fighter out of a child's reach.

What They're Saying:
"A worthy challenger to the far more popular Harry Potter pictures." - Orlando Sentinel

"It's good to see the spirit of English craftsmanship alive, even if applied to ephemeral effects." - Village Voice

Let the kids' imaginations run wild at this fairytale adventure.
