  • 1. WATER FOR ELEPHANTS:

    Twilight’s Robert Pattinson is completely believable here in this love story set in the time that the great circuses criss-crossed the country bringing animal acts, trapeze artists, and freaks into every community under the big-top.  Reese Witherspoon is Marlena, wife of the iron-fisted circus owner August (Christoph Waltz).  Jacob (Pattinson) is on the cusp of becoming a veterinarian when a random act of fate sends him riding the rods, and ending up in the clutches of circus toughs.  Excellent character study and a fine tale based on the best-selling book by Sara Gruen.  Rated 14A.

  • 2. CRAZY STUPID LOVE:

    Steve Carrell is everyman Cal Weaver, husband, father, hard-working schmuck, who is told one evening by his wife (Julianne Moore) that she doesn’t love him anymore … plus, she has just had an affair.  This sends Cal into a tailspin, but soon he meets bar-hopper Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) who is the consummate ladies’ man (when others are saying, “Hi, I’m Cal,” Jacob is saying, “why don’t we get out of here and go to my place?”), everything changes.  Jacob decides to teach Cal all about the world of dating, of love, and of … all that other stuff.  Marisa Tomei also stars. Rated PG.

  • 3. CARS 2:

    Although critically panned by many reviewers, this Pixar film that picks up on the adventures of Lightning McQueen as he finds his way to Europe and to the Grand Prix circuit, is still great fun. Plus it has taken in nearly $600 million worldwide.  There’s a major backstory in which ‘Mater (voice of Larry the Cable Guy) gets caught up with a James Bond-like spy car, but the movie belongs to McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) and the usual cast of car characters.  It’s always interesting to note that there are no humans in either Cars movie.  Rated G.
