Killers
Short Story:
After a sudden breakup, Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) finds herself on an impromptu trip to the French Riviera, where she unexpectedly meets the man of her dreams, the handsome Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kutcher). The two date and soon marry into a cozy suburban life, that is, until the morning after Spencer’s 30th birthday. It seems Spencer didn’t tell Jen about his life as a spy, and when a contract is out on his life, bullets start to fly. As Jen struggles to stay alive, she must find answers to the missing links in her marriage.

Good for Kids? Rated, PG-13, Killers is an action-packed romantic comedy great for the older folk, but one may find the gun-toting too over-the-top for tweens.

"If you’ve seen Species, you know where this don’t-mess-with-Mother-Nature horror show is going, though director-cowriter Vincenzo Natali has a few interesting twists up his sleeve." -Time Out New York

In case you missed...

Sex and the City 2
Short Story:
The ladies are back with more fun, fashion, and friendship in the second installment of Sex and the City. This time around, the foursome (Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda), now settled into their lives as mothers, wives, etc, escape the Big Apple for a relaxing and exotic getaway; and, as usual, they encounter a few surprises along the way.

What They're Saying:
”Sex and the City 2 is a champagne cocktail on a runaway train -- fizzy, sparkly, giddy-making, and splashing all over the place.” –Philadelphia Inquirer

“Though the sequel is a welcome return of the four women we know and love, it's tough not to acknowledge that if we were all friends in real life, at this point we'd probably stop taking their calls.”- New York Daily News

Good for Kids?
Sex and The City 2 is strictly an adult conversation; leave the kiddies at home.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Short Story:
Based on the epic video game Prince of Persia, The Sands of Time follows prince Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) and princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) as they travel through mystical Persia to safeguard the Sands of Time—an ancient dagger that allows its possessor to reverse time and, thus, rule the world.

What They're Saying:
“It's sort of fun, certainly more so than the National Treasure pictures, as well as less manic (a little less) than the recent Mummy films.”-Chicago Tribune

“As sword-and-sandal fantasy movies based on videogames and starring a buffed-up Jake Gyllenhaal go, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time goes pretty well.” -Entertainment Weekly

Good for Kids?
Rated PG-13, Prince of Persia is an action-packed flick ideal for giddy tweens as well as they’re parents.
