Weekend Movie Forecast

Which movies are fun for the whole family, and which ones are treats just for you? Find out!

Opening this weekend...

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs
Short Story:
The beloved children's book about food falling from the sky hits the big screen, and weathergirl Anna Faris shows kids that it's cool to just be yourself.

What They're Saying:
"The PG rating is for mild language, so expect insults and potty humor, as well some 3-D excitement and plenty of physical comedy." – Common Sense Media

"Clever and zippy, with some nutritional value hidden in the fun." – Newsday.com

Good for Kids?
Yes! The film's valuable lessons make up for the brief, mild language.

Watch the trailer!

The Informant!
Short Story:
In an attempt at heroism, Mark Whitacre agrees to expose his company's scandal to the FBI. That is, if the agents can weed through his bipolar disorder-induced fictional ramblings to discover the truth.

What They're Saying:
"The pic showcases an excellent performance by a chubbed-out Matt Damon as a Midwestern executive who's so smart he's dumb," - Variety

"The Informant! is a hoot, an ever-escalating tale of corporate crime, greed and out-and-out craziness." - Arizona Republic

Good for Kids?
Rated R for strong language, this one's best for 17 and up.

Watch the trailer!

Jennifer's Body
Short Story:
As always, guys are irrevocably drawn to Megan Fox. Unfortunately for them, she's a maneater. Literally.

What They're Saying:
"This film, written by Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody, looks to be jam-packed with gory horror and sex," – Common Sense Media

"While Fox's performance as a high-school girl possessed by a demon would seem key to the fortunes of the film, Amanda Seyfried, as her unlikely best friend, Needy, makes it more interesting than it would be." – Arizona Republic

Good for Kids?
This horror flick guarantees nightmares. No kids allowed.

Watch the trailer!

Love Happens
Short Story:
Irony strikes when a grieving widower and self-help author played by Aaron Eckhart can help everyone but himself. Will a charmingly quirky florist (Jennifer Aniston) be the one to lead him back to love?

What They're Saying:
"The movie coasts by on the charm of its two main characters." – Arizona Republic

Good for Kids?
The occasional bad language and sexual references make this best for 13 and up.

Watch the trailer!

In case you missed...

9
Short Story:

In a post-apocalyptic world the only creatures left resemble rag dolls and have numbers for names. When pitted against a mechanical enemy, they must decide whether to play it safe or risk their lives to save one of their own.

What They're Saying:
"This dark, futuristic Tim Burton-produced fantasy may be animated, but it's not meant for younger kids. On the up side, despite the movie's ominous tone and frequent peril and violence, there's no language, drinking, consumerism, or sexual content." – Common Sense Media

"Although its story is perhaps too familiar and less complex than some might wish, 9 is visually spectacular, and director Shane Acker's attention to detail succeeds in drawing viewers into the film's universe." – Rotten Tomatoes

Good For Kids?
The animation will appeal to little ones, but don't write this off as a kids' film. It's too scary for the under-12 set.

Watch the trailer!
