What They're Saying:
"Is Valentine's Day good? Not really, though plenty of the actors are." - Chicago Tribune

"Valentine's Day is so desperate to keep all the characters alive, it's like those Russian jugglers who run around, trying to keep all their plates spinning on poles." - RogerEbert.com

Expect some sexual material suitable for ages 12 and older.

The Wolfman
Short Story:
When his brother vanishes, Lawrence Talbot (Benicio del Toro) sets out to find him -- but instead discovers a primal secret about his family.

What They're Saying:
"Compared to Van Helsing, this is fairly satisfying." - Chicago Reader

"The Wolfman constitutes a pleasant surprise, if 'pleasant' can be used to describe a brooding $100 million-plus diversion with this many beheadings and eviscerations." - Chicago Tribune

Good for Kids?
This violent, R-rated film is only for adults.

Watch the trailer!

Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief
Short Story:
In this fantasy adventure a high school boy (Logan Lerman) learns he's really the son of Poseidon and gets sucked into the exciting and dangerous world of the Greek gods (Uma Thurman, Pierce Brosnan).

What They're Saying?
"Percy Jackson isn't a great movie, but it's a good one, trotting out kernels of Greek mythology like so many Disney Channel references." - Arizona Republic

"Action movies of this scale often start off strong and wind down to forgettable finales, but Percy Jackson is the opposite, overcoming a clunky setup to deliver nearly all its thrills in the last half-hour." - Variety

Good for Kids?
Rated PG for some scary scenes and mild language, this family film is fun for kids 10 and up.

Watch the trailer!

In case you missed...

Dear John
When a jaded soldier (Channing Tatum) falls for an idealistic college girl (Amanda Seyfried) it's love at first sight. But will time and distance tear them apart?

What They're Saying:
"Mostly, the movie provides ample opportunity to admire Channing Tatum's broad shoulders and Amanda Seyfried's incandescent smile, but the narrative device that keeps them connected while geographically apart doesn't work especially well onscreen." - Variety

"Awash in mawkish sentimentality, Dear John still will move you deeply - if you're a 12-year-old girl" - Arizona Republic

Good for Kids?
The one sex scene is tame enough for tweens and teens.

Watch the trailer!

From Paris with Love
Short Story:
In this action adventure, an eager young CIA agent (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) must learn to get along with his wild, wisecracking partner (John Travolta) if they're going to survive.

What They're Saying:
"[Director Pierre Morel] brings in lobotomized entertainment at 90-odd minutes. During the February doldrums, this cannot be underestimated." - Village Voice

"Travolta has/is a blast in an action-thriller-comedy that otherwise comes up short on all three counts." - HollywoodReporter.com

Good for Kids?
The intense violence makes this R-rated film best-suited for adults.

Watch the trailer!

When in Rome
Short Story:
When a New Yorker (Kristen Bell) travels to Italy for her sister's wedding she unknowingly sets off a spell, causing multiple men to fall madly in love with her.

What They're Saying:
"It lurches along, making Ms. Bell and Mr. [Josh] Duhamel look duller than they need to" - New York Times

"When in Rome may fall flat in places, but at least it hasn't had all the personality manicured out of it."- Salon.com

Good for Kids?
The sexual content is pretty tame, making this rom-com okay for teens.

Watch the trailer!
