Opening this weekend...

Couples Retreat
Short Story:
In this Vince Vaughn creation, a married couple struggling with their marriage tricks their friends into joining them on a tropical vacation – where they're forced to endure mandatory couples counseling.

What They're Saying:
"Thanks to Vaughn, [Jon] Favreau, and the stray sharp lines that pop out of everyone else, the film at least offers the lively sound of egos that still know how to swing." – EW.com

"Parents can still expect lots of raunchy language and overt sexual jokes and innuendo, as well as plenty of skin, since the characters spend most of the film on a tropical island." – Common Sense Media

Good for Kids?
This PG-13 film was originally rated R for sexual content and language. Best for older teens.

Watch the trailer!

Free Style
Short Story:
With support from his mom and girlfriend, an aspiring motocross racing champion (Corbin Bleu) follows his dream.

What They're Saying:
"This coming-of-age story looks to offer somewhat grittier fare than what tweens and teens who "met" star Corbin Bleu through the hit High School Musical movies might expect." – Common Sense Media

"Anyone over the legal voting age will have to suffer through 'valuable' life lessons to get to the sick two-wheel aerials." – Time Out New York

Good for Kids?
It's rated PG for some sensuality and thematic materials, but it's definitely family-friendly.

Watch the trailer!

Good Hair
Short Story:
In this clever documentary, Chris Rock examines the obsession with weaves, relaxing treatments and all things related to "good hair" in the African-American community.

What They're Saying:
"[Rock] conveys a lot of information, but also some unfortunate opinions and misleading facts. That doesn't mean the movie isn't warm, funny and entertaining."  – RogerEbert.com

"Good Hair is a raucous and rigorous inquiry into the subject of African-American hair." Variety

Good for Kids?
The message is valuable, but the mature references and brief partial nudity make this best for 13 and up.

Watch the trailer!

In case you missed...

Whip It
Short Story:
Ellen Page shows her tough side in this girl-power flick about a gang of roller-derby chicks.

What They're Saying:
"The movie is miles more intelligent than most of the cream-of-wheat marketed to teenage girls." – RogerEbert.com

"Expect plenty of action on the track, as well as some strong language and sexual content." – Common Sense Media

Good for Kids?
Some sexual content and bad language make it best for 13 and up.

Watch the trailer!

The Invention of Lying
Short Story:
In a world where everyone tells the truth, the man who discovers lying holds all the power. But is he powerful enough to get Jennifer Garner to sleep with him?

What They're Saying:
"It's awkward and ungainly, but more often than not The Invention of Lying is also touching, moving, and flat out funny." – Cinema Blend

"The Invention of Lying is, like most of star Ricky Gervais' humor, irreverent and edgy (though also thought provoking)." – Common Sense Media

Good for Kids?
It's rated PG-13 for bad language, sexual content and a drug reference.

Watch the trailer!

Zombieland
Short Story:
Comedy and horror mix as the few human survivors in a world of zombies must team up to fend off their undead enemies.

What They're Saying:

"Black humor flows as thick and black as the blood the zombies spurt and the bile the zombies vomit. It's still just a dumb zombie movie, but at least in Zombieland, they know 'Living Dead' is the biggest joke of all." – Orlando Sentinel

"A crazy entertaining combo of zombie movie/road trip/romantic comedy/video game." – Metromix Chicago

Good for Kids?
Dripping with gore, guts and dirty humor, this one's for the grown-ups.

Watch the trailer!
