You Again
Short Story:
Marni (Kristen Bell), a successful PR Executive, heads home for her brother Will's (James Wolk) wedding. Unfortunately, the blissful retreat turns into a nightmare when she discovers that the bride-to-be is her high school arch nemesis, Joanna (Odette Yustman). If that wasn't enough, things get even more sticky with the arrival of Joanna's ritzy Aunt Ramona (Sigourney Weaver), who just so happens to be an old high school rival of Marni's mother Gail (Jamie Lee Curtis). When Marni tries to show her Brother Joanna's true colors, havoc ensues, tempers flare, and the claws come out.

What They're Saying:
"Disney's effort to turn Kristen Bell into America's Sweetheart reaches its tipping point with You Again, a flat romantic comedy that packages her in a funny setup and surrounds her with funny people." - Orlando Sentinel

"If only You Again understood that its story was suited for screwball comedy. It labors under the delusion that this assembly of half-baked ideas is destined for a higher comic calling — for example, in the warmhearted romantic weeper category." - Chicago Sun-Times

Good For Kids?
You Again's comical antics will keep the kids going for quite a while.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole
Short Story:
Filmmaker Zack Snider transforms Kathryn Lasky's lovable tale into a big screen adventure in Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole. The film follows Soren, a young owl caught up in his father's epic stories about the Guardians of Ga' Hoole, winged warriors who once saved all of owlkind from the evil Pure Ones. Soren dreams of one day joining their ranks, but his older brother Kludd thinks his aspirations foolish and selfishly hopes to steal his father's favor from his younger sibling. At odds, a scuffle between the two owlets causes them to fall from their treetop home, into the grasp of the Pure Ones. Together, Kludd and Soren attempt a daring escape in search of the Great Tree, home of the legendary Guardians--their only hope of defeating the Pure Ones and saving the owl kingdoms.

What They're Saying:
"Snyder has crafted the rare 3-D eyegasm that's worth the premium ticket price." - Entertainment Weekly 

"In an age of "let’s all get along" pabulum, there’s much to like in a cartoon not afraid to show its talons." - Orlando Sentinel

Good For Kids?
Mystery, fantasy and adventure combine to make Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole a fun-filled, kiddie oasis.

In case you missed...

The Town
Short Story:
Doug MacRay (Ben Affleck) hails from Charlestown, a gritty section of Boston, where crime is the norm and outsiders aren't welcomed. As the leader amongst a gang of bank robbers, Doug knows their luck won't last forever. When he cements a plan to commit one last bank robbery, he's met with an obstinate crew, the growing love for a certain hostage, and an entire police task force out for his neck.

What They're Saying:
"Affleck also has a way with his actors -- unsurprising, having been one himself for so long and not always getting the credit he deserves -- and he's once again attracted some tremendous talent." - Associated Press

"Everyone in The Town shines, even Blake Lively, but it’s Chris Cooper as MacRay’s imprisoned dad who astounds." - New York Magazine

Good For Kids?
With an R rating, The Town contains scenes and situations not suitable for the kids.

Easy A

What They're Saying:
"If Lindsay Lohan never makes it back to leading-lady status, then we can all comfort ourselves with the knowledge that we have Emma Stone." - Entertainment Weekly

"The ghost of John Hughes smiles upon Easy A, a film that freely and giddily borrows from and pays tribute to Hughes’ famous Holy Trinity of ’80s teen angst comedies." - Orlando Sentinel

Good For Kids?
The premise behind Easy A is a bit taboo for the young ones.
