Oceans
Short Story:
This Disney creation takes audiences on a deep-sea adventure through the world's mysterious underwater playground.

What They're Saying:
"An almost miraculously photographed showcase of some of the seven seas' least seen and most incredible specimens." - Village Voice

"The wow factor alone makes Oceans a great Earth Day/Earth Week at the movies." - Orlando Sentinel

Good for Kids?
This educational flick is fun for Earth lovers of all ages.

The Back-Up Plan
Short Story:
A single woman (Jennifer Lopez) decides she doesn't need a man to have a baby and opts for artificial insemination. But, in a twist of fate, she meets her dream guy just as she finds out she's pregnant.

What They're Saying:
"A winning performance by Jennifer Lopez overcomes a formulaic and predictable rom-com that involves a planned pregnancy." - The Hollywood Reporter

"This tepid romantic comedy falls somewhere between a weak sitcom pilot and a second-tier Hallmark movie." - Variety

Good for Kids?
It's okay for teens, but the themes of motherhood are geared towards adults.

The Losers
Short Story:
In this live-action adaptation of the classic comic (starring Zoe Saldana and Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a group of mercenaries are double-crossed by the CIA. This means war.

What They're Saying:
"The movie gets the job done, and the actors show a lot of confidence in occupying that tricky middle ground between controlled satire and comic overkill. It's fun." - RogerEbert.com

"The Losers does a perfectly serviceable job of achieving its low ambitions." - Arizona Republic

Good for Kids?
Rated PG-13 for intense action and violence, this one's best for teens and adults.

In case you missed...

Death at a Funeral
Short Story:
In this riotous comedy, a family (Chris Rock, Tracy Morgan) comes together to lay their deceased husband and father to rest -- but the reunion reveals some unexpected truths.

What They're Saying:
"In filling the cast with funny people, none of whom has to carry the picture, [directer Neil] LaBute allows Tracy Morgan, Chris Rock, Loretta Devine, Danny Glover and [James] Marsden to score without trying too hard." - Orlando Sentinel

"Oh, I know a lot of Death at a Funeral is in very bad taste. That's when I laughed the most." - RogerEbert.com

Good for Kids?
Rated R for sexual humor and language, this funny film is for adults only.

Kick-Ass
Short Story:
This violent comedy (starring Nicolas Cage, Chloe Moretz and Aaron Johnson) tells the story of a gang of young, wannabe superheroes determined to fight crime -- without super powers.

What They're Saying:
"Never as shocking as it thinks it is, as funny as it should be, or as engaged in cultural critique as it could be." - Village Voice

"Kick-Ass is a compendium of all sleazy things, and it sings like a siren to our inner Tarantinos." - New York magazine

Good for Kids?
This violent, R-rated flick may feature kids onscreen, but it's definitely not appropriate for them.

Date Night
A married couple (Tina Fey and Steve Carell) goes out for a romantic date, but when the evening goes wrong they end up running for their lives.

What They're Saying:
"A romantic comedy with action, edge and genuine chemistry between its leads, Date Night scores a home run." - Variety

"Steve Carell and Tina Fey make a terrific comic pairing in this entertaining if overly familiar comic thriller." - The Hollywood Reporter

Good for Kids?
This PG-13 comedy has crude humor and mild violence. Best for teens and adults.
