Grown Ups
Short Story:
Grown Ups
tells the story of five childhood friends (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider, and David Spade) who reunite after the death of their high school basketball coach. With their families in tow, the guys spend July Fourth weekend at the lake house where they won their championship so many years ago. Rehashing old memories and juggling family life, they soon discover that growing old doesn’t mean growing up.

What They're Saying:
"Diverting enough to get by, Grown Ups is Adam Sandler growing up -- but not too much." -Entertainment Weekly

"Maybe the summer swelter is melting my brain, but Adam Sandler and four other showboats desperately needing a hit had me laughing at Grown Ups more than expected. Let's give credit where credit is due. It's not the heat; it's the stupidity." -St. Petersburg Times

Toy Story 3
Short Story:
Tom Hanks
and Tim Allen reprise their roles as Woody and Buzz Lightyear in the Disney Pixar sequel Toy Story 3. This time around, Woody, Buzz, Jessie, and the rest of the toys are more alive than ever: the light-hearted flick is in 3-D!

What They're Saying:
"By the time its poetic ending arrives, encapsulating the transformative, continuing power of play, we recognize that none of us move from one stage of life, or beyond, without help from our friends." - New York Daily News

"That even grown-up viewers feel invested in the toys' ultimate destination is indicative of the affection held for this franchise; that a third movie in a sequence can still offer charm and delight is the cherry on the sundae." - Seattle Times

Jonah Hex
Short Story:
Based on the gun-slinging DC Comics character Jonah Hex, cowriters Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor take you on a bloody adventure through the Wild West as Hex attempts to capture his archrival, Turnball (John Malkovich), a villian determined to unleash hell on Earth.

What They're Saying:
"It's based on some DC Comics characters, which may explain the way the plot jumps around. We hear a lot about graphic novels, but this is more of a graphic anthology of strange occult ideas." - Chicago Sun-Times

"Here's how you know Josh Brolin has become a movie star: Jonah Hex may not be much with him, but without him? Perish the thought." - Chicago Tribune

Good for Kids?
Jonah Hex is one bloody fight -- keep children away from this one.

The Karate Kid
Short Story:

After a career move requires his mother (Taraji P. Henson) to relocate to China, Dre Parker (Jaden Smith) struggles to adjust to the culture differences. But in this remake of the 1984 hit, our young hero finds a friend in the maintenance man -- and kung fu master! -- Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who helps Dre win the respect of his new classmates.

What They're Saying:
"The Karate Kid
is fun, and believable, on the most important level: It convinces us that Jaden Smith has what it takes to fight his way to the top." - Enterainment Weekly

"The original was one of its year's best movies. The new one lacks the perfect freshness of that one; there aren't many surprises, as it follows the 1984 version almost point by point. But here is a lovely and well-made film that stands on its own feet." - Chicago Sun-Times

Good for Kids?
No surprise, kids will love this tale of triumph and adore the kung fu action.
