Kate Hudson in a romantic comedy about weddings and other difficult events
JUMPING THE BROOM
Weddings again, this time in a clash of cultures
1. THE GREEN HORNET:
I didn’t like much at all about this film that really dumbs down a superhero from a bygone age. Seth Rogan plays the Hornet with the same slacker-druggie attitude that he used in Pineapple Express and that pretty much ruined the movie for me. Jay Chou is excellent as Kato, and Christoph Waltz is … interesting as the chief villain. This was a box office dud, and it’s no surprise! Rated PG.
2. THE DILLEMMA:
Vince Vaughn and Kevin James (King of Queens) team up here as a couple of long-time buddies and business partners, Ronny and Nick. Ronny (Vaughn’s character) sees Kick’s wife in what appears to be a compromising situation with another man … the dilemma – to tell his friend or not. Playing like an uneven TV sitcom, this has some moments, but really doesn’t have all that much substance. Okay for what it is – a quickie comedy with little real substance. Directed by Ron Howard. Rated 14A.
Direct-to-DVD this one is your standard monster-frozen-in-the-ice story … of course it comes to life and it terrorizes all who encounter it … part dinosaur, part shark, with a lot of teeth. Global warming is to blame as it leaves the Arctic ice and heads down the coast to Puerto Vallarta to feast on beach bunnies and other hangers-on. B-movie actor Eric Balfour is the star. Pretty cheesy! Rated 14A.

4. THE DILLEMMA:
I didn’t like this too much, but it’s better than The Green Hornet, and makes more sense than Dinoshark.
Despite some serious plot holes, this is a pretty good thriller. Will you see the ending coming? Probably!
Vin Diesel and Paul Walker offer everything promised in this hot-car-hot-action flick
HOODWINKED TOO: HOOD VS. EVIL
3D helps this odd-lot animated feature, but it still seems … odd!
Typical teen romp on prom night that works well if you’re, oh, 14 – 16 and female.
