Opening This Week

THE 11TH HOUR—Not exclusively a screed against global warming and impending eco-disaster (although that is certainly its crux), this documentary adopts a more holistic viewpoint by also focusing on the larger context of humankind in Earth's chronological history. It is a sometimes stuffy syllabus relying on a roundtable of academic, scientific, political and philosophical talking heads for its heft, with co-producer/narrator Leonardo DiCaprio appearing periodically to remind us that we are still sitting in a theater watching a movie. The sobering truth is that while many refer to an "environmental crisis," the term is a misnomer: It is not the environment that is in peril, but rather our ability to survive in it. Still, as astute this sentiment might be, it is an ironic one coming from a Hollywood-made vessel that commands eight bucks and the enduring of a dozen or more advertisements in order to see it. Rated PG. Read our review.NM

THE BRAVE ONE—Jodie Foster plays a woman out for revenge after suffering an act of violence. Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Breakfast on Pluto) directs, while Terrence Howard, Naveen Andrews (Lost) and Mary Steenburgen co-star. Rated R.

DHAMAAL (TURMOIL)—Was anyone clamoring for a remake of It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World? Yet, the Indian press has given thumbs-up (perhaps too kindly) and the cast is full of such amusing fellows as Arshad Warsi, Ritiesh Deshmukh and Javed Jaffrey, who all scramble after a treasure with Sanjay Dutt, as the Spencer Tracy character, in hot pursuit. Not rated. —LB

DRAGON WARS—Hailing from the country that brought us The Host, director Hyung-rae Shim delivers a story of a brave reporter who fights a swarm of monsters that are bent on destroying civilization. Rated PG-13.

KING OF KONG: A FISTFUL OF QUARTERS—Remember Donkey Kong? So do we! This documentary about present-day competitive Kong-ing has been a smash everywhere it's played thus far. Rated PG-13.

MR. WOODCOCK—Billy Bob Thornton, who rumor has it once won an Oscar, continues his well-worn Bad period as the title character, a sadistic high school gym teacher who prowls flyover country. One of his ex-students/victims, John Farley (Seann William Scott), now a successful author, returns to his Nebraska hometown receive the key to the city, only to find that his ex-tormentor is dating his widowed mother (Susan Sarandon). The fundamental flaw in this School for Scoundrels on steroids—besides an abject lack of humor or sensible plot—is that Woodcock goes past amusingly acerbic to wholly odious, with Thornton less pushing the envelope than merely mailing it in. It is telling that in a town full of idiots and/or assholes, the most prudent character is Farley's rude, alcoholic publicist (SNL's Amy Poehler). To add insult to inanity, tack on Farley's undeveloped love interest and a final act full of phony sappiness that attempts to salvage characters—and a film—way beyond saving. Rated PG-13. —NM

Current Releases

2 DAYS IN PARIS—Perhaps the least romantic Paris movie ever made, 2 Days in Paris charts the disintegrating relationship curve between Marion (Julie Delpy), a testy photographer, and Jack (Adam Goldberg), her neurotic soulmate. Writer-director Delpy's two years at NYU's film school has given her a keen eye for American insecurities and the garrulous wisecracking that disguises a fundamental national Puritanism. The insightful 2 Days in Paris devolves into a little too much arguing toward the end, but the sharp characterizations make it a cinematic trip worth taking. Rated R. —LB

3:10 TO YUMAWalk the Line director James Mangold helms a spirited remake of Delmer Daves' 1957 Western, in which a financially strapped rancher (Christian Bale) joins a posse attempting to deliver a captured outlaw (Russell Crowe) to the train to prison. Compared to the sleek original, the new movie is bigger, noisier, more violent and longer. But at a time when Westerns are rare, it's a pleasure to see one done with this film's energy and conviction; it brims with the genre's traditional satisfactions, and Crowe's subtle, commanding performance ranks with his best. Rated R. —GC

BALLS OF FURY—The tale of the washed-up sports hero marches on with this lackluster attempt at turning ping-pong politics into comedic fodder. Randy Daytona (Broadway star Dan Fogler) is a down-and-out former child ping-pong champ who lost his nerve to compete after an upset at the 1988 Summer Olympics. The film moves on to parody both the underdog sports film and martial arts cinema—a funny proposition—but on-screen, the jokes about ping-pong just don't elicit the knee-slapping humor hoped for by funnyman director Ben Garant (of Reno 911! fame). Nice try, but no cigar. Rated PG-13. —KJ

BECOMING JANEPride and Prejudice is one of the most popular novels in English literature, and Becoming Jane attempts to shoehorn Jane Austen's scant biographical details into an outline resembling her most famous work. Anne Hathaway is far too pretty to play our Jane—it's impossible to believe she must live by her wits alone. James McAvoy charms as a sly rogue who steals Jane's heart, much in the manner of the fictional Mr. Darcy. Although the film is bloodless, Jane Austen completists should not be discouraged from its slight pleasures. Rated PG. —LB

THE BOURNE ULTIMATUM—A gritty and taut atmosphere lingers as director Paul Greengrass and screenwriter Tony Gilroy handle plot and character development with a deft touch, punctuated by sensational stunt work and intricate set pieces. If there is a criticism to be issued, it is the air of redundancy that sets in after making three films using the same general formula. Rated PG-13. —NM

CHAK DE INDIA (LET'S GO, INDIA)—Shah Rukh Khan, the de facto King of Bollywood, stars in this hybrid of an underdog sports movie and a ecumenical patriotic rabble-rouser. A disgraced field hockey coach seeks to restore his honor by training a raggedy group of athletes for the Women's World Cup. The women, for their part, are defying family pressures in order to compete. Feminism, religious and political unity, a dash of humor and a plucky team: It's hard to be curmudgeonly about Chak De India. Not rated. —­LB

DEATH AT A FUNERAL—Set in a bristlingly clean English countryside manor, Frank Oz's film features Matthew Macfadyen as Daniel, the son of a recently deceased man who must orchestrate his father's funeral single-handedly. Daniel is overshadowed (and threatened) by his brother Robert (Rupert Graves), who threatens to disrupt the funeral. But things really bubble over when the plot explodes into a sort of comedic jack-in-the-box that employs a gay subplot, powerful hallucinogens and bathroom blowouts to form a dark, off-kilter British farce that's absurdly hilarious and delightfully irreverent. Rated R. —KJ

DEATH SENTENCE—With this relaunch of the Death Wish franchise, Kevin Bacon now is an honorary degree removed from Charles Bronson. Rated R.

HAIRSPRAY—The 1988 film Hairspray was indie-film maverick John Waters' valentine to his high school BFF, the flamboyant plus-size drag queen Divine. A Utopian view of rock 'n' roll and rhythm 'n' blues as a powerful force for good, the euphoric Hairspray embraces the pleasantly plump and the oppositely colored, without explicitly voicing Waters' real plea, acceptance of the differently oriented. John Travolta, as Edna Turnblad, is clearly enjoying himself in a fable that asserts one can be oneself and still be catnip to the cutest boy in town. Rated PG. —LB

HALLOWEEN—Director Rob Zombie destroys the mystique of John Carpenter's original and comes up empty-handed as the psychological melodrama of the creation of a killer is super-sized to epic proportion. Angel-faced Michael Myers (Daeg Faerch) is a 10-year-old with a family so white trash they'd be at home on Jerry Springer. Zombie wills us to believe that Myers' dysfunctional childhood is the culprit of his unspeakable evil nature, but it was scarier when Carpenter implied inherent evil emerged from average middle America with no impetus (besides sexual misconduct, of course). More splatter than suspense, Zombie's remake is gratuitously violent and sleazy, lacking the slow-burning brilliance of Carpenter's original. Rated R. —KJ

HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX—This is Harry Potter at its most subversive, a revitalizing reprieve from the incessant array of banal curses and secret passageways. Rated PG-13. —NM

INTERVIEW—A couple of robust performances from Steve Buscemi (who also directs) and an ever-blossoming Sienna Miller do not offset the sheer implausibility of this remake of the late Theo van Gogh's 2003 film of the same title. The Dutch original featured the interplay between a reluctant reporter and a soap opera star, but this remake transforms the characters and setting to that of a self-absorbed movie scream-queen who invites a cynical, self-absorbed reporter back to her Manhattan flat. What follows—a night of alcohol and drug use, minor violence and psychological jousting—defies logic or believability. This "interview" should have ended at a dozen or so different points, but instead, this two-hander drones on past the point of audience tolerance. Rated R. —NM

MR. BEAN'S HOLIDAY—Rowan Atkinson wants to amuse you. Rated PG.

MY BEST FRIEND— François (Daniel Auteuil), a dapper antiques dealer, learns from his chic birthday party guests that he hasn't a single real friend. Challenged to produce a "best friend," he sets out to procure this person, as if friendship was simply another valuable acquisition. Bruno (Dany Boon), an affable cabbie, mentors him as François haltingly learns the three S's of companionship—sympathique, souriant, sincère: to be likeable, smiling and sincere. A funny and emotionally satisfying character-centered film by writer-director Patrice Leconte. —LB

THE NANNY DIARIES—Married documentarians Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, directors of the bracing American Splendor, tackle more conventional material as Scarlett Johansson's nanny becomes a Stockholm Syndrome victim through her pity for the helpless boy being propelled through a loveless childhood by his aspirational parents (Laura Linney and Paul Giamatti). The satirical conceit of having Annie's field work result in dioramas at the Museum of Natural History is amusing, but the film cries out for a supporting village of sympathetic nannies—and the dreamboat boyfriend is a crutch. The film is musing enough, but it lacks the scalpel needed to expunge the dreary rom-com clichés. Rated PG-13. —LB

NO END IN SIGHT—The best film yet about the Iraq War is no slice of street-level vérité but a searingly lucid overview of how the Bush team bungled the occupation from the first, making a series of mistakes (such as its excessive "de-Ba'athification" project and disbanding the Iraqi military) destined to produce the current chaos. Interestingly, filmmaker Charles Ferguson doesn't argue whether the invasion was right or wrong; but he provides plenty evidence of why Bush, Cheney and company deserve impeachment for their lethal incompetence. Not rated. —GC

RATATOUILLE—Pixar Animation's latest triumph underscores the human capacity for both creativity and cataclysm, and it accentuates the themes of personal achievement and nurturing one's talents in the face of countervailing cultural and societal impediments. Oh, and it's darn funny, too. Rated G. —NM

RUSH HOUR 3—The reported $20 million salary paid to Chris Tucker to reprise the role of Detective James Carter seems like money well spent. Rated PG-13. —NM

SEPTEMBER DAWN—In this already-controversial retelling of an ugly massacre that occurred in the nascent Mormon country of 1857 Utah, Terence Stamp plays Brigham Young while Dean Cain is Joseph Smith. Rated R.

SHOOT 'EM UP—On one hand paying homage to the likes of John Woo, this theater of the absurd is also more of the mindless, hyperkinetic schlock that crops up twice a year or so—Smokin' Aces, Running Scared, Crank and so on. British director Michael Davis' stylish, if overly sadistic, actioner benefits from the curious yet welcome presence of two past Oscar nominees—Clive Owen and Paul Giamatti—who relish riffing on everything from grindhouse cinema to Bugs Bunny cartoons. Owen apparently has not stopped ferrying babies around since Children of Men, since here he spends the entire film shielding an orphaned newborn from nefarious forces led by Giamatti, a hired gun and ex-FBI "forensic behavioral consultant." The plot itself is illogical and perhaps best treated as a MacGuffin (something about a politician in the pocket of the gun industry and babies being harvested for their bone marrow). However, Davis provides enough intricate, audacious set pieces to justify the ticket price. Rated R. —NM

THE SIMPSONS MOVIE—There are more genuine laughs per each of this film's 87 minutes than any movie you will see this summer. Still, a similar declaration can usually be made about any given Simpsons television episode, so elongating one of them to feature-film length does not by itself make a transcendent feature film. Rated PG-13. —NM

STARDUST—Thirty minutes in, this adaptation of author Neil Gaiman's 1997 comic novella-turned-hardback sensation feels as banal as it is byzantine. Unicorns, magical spells and sundry other gimcracks abound in a cheeky adventure-comedy penned by filmmakers who have clearly seen A Princes Bride too many times. Rated PG-13. —NM

SUPERBAD—This teen comedy, co-written by Knocked Up star Seth Rogen, tells of a couple of misfits (Jonah Hill and Michael Cera) out to get booze to help them hook up at a wild party. The language is unrelentingly foul, but there's a good, sweet movie about friendship underneath the dirty words. Rated R. —ZS

UNDERDOG—Unlike the original, the film version uses a live-action dog with the gravely voice of Jason Lee, and trades in the cuteness for lousy talking-dog effects and every bad canine joke known to man. Even Peter Dinklage, in the thankless role of mad scientist Simon Bar Sinister, can't keep his dignity. Kids might find Underdog cute, but please, please just take them to Ratatouille again. Horrifyingly, Jason Lee is due to appear in another live-action cartoon adaptation, Alvin and the Chipmunks, in just a few months. It's a sad, sad era for children's cinema. Rated PG. —ZS

WAR—Jason Statham and Jet Li square off in this East-meets-West martial arts workout. Rated R.
