  • 1 .WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS:

    Cameron Diaz and Ashton Kutcher star in this romantic comedy that is relatively predictable, but relatively entertaining too. Each is reeling from life changes, they go to Vegas separately, meet, have a wild night together, and wind up married when they awaken the next morning. It’s a mistake they want to correct … but on the way to the annulment, he plays a slot machine with her money and hits the jackpot. Now, who gets the cash? That’s the story. Rated 14A.

  • 2. WHERE IN THE WORLD IS OSAMA BIN LADEN?:

    Morgan Spurlock (“Supersize Me”) heads to the Middle East in search of the most wanted man in the world. This is a documentary that doesn’t have the same bite as Michael Moore’s work, but it has its own entertaining value and is a worthwhile rental. But get it for the travelogue, not for the investigation, which really goes nowhere. Rated PG.

  • 3. SON OF RAMBOW:

    A British indie movie about a young boy raised in a fundamentalist religious sect that bans such things as movies … or fun. He happens across a VHS copy of Rambo: First Blood, and is so enthralled that he sets out to make his own version, using his playground friends, a home video camera, and some ingenuity. The editing could use some work, but this isn’t Hollywood – it’s a rare little treat of a movie. Rated PG.

  • RICK’S PICK: SON OF RAMBOW:

    Sylvester Stallone endorsed this film … but the “w” still had to be added to the title for legal reasons.

Rambo: First Blood (1982):
Shot in BC, revisiting this one is always interesting. Although so violent that Dustin Hoffman dropped out of the cast because he didn’t want to be associated with it, the body count is only four. In the last Rambo movie from 2007, the body count was 323.
  • Death Race

    Jason Statham is at his buff-and-chiseled best as a wrongfully imprisoned race driver out for revenge. Extremely violent, and very, very entertaining
  • The Longshots

    Great family film about the first girl (age 11) to lead a Pop Warner football team to the Super Bowl
  • The Rocker

    Rainn Wilson (The Office) is over the top as a wannabe rock star from the 80s who gets another chance
  • The House Bunny

    Anna Fairs is the blond bimbo who takes over as a sorority house mother with surprisingly entertaining results.
