Opening This Week

ADORATION—This latest effort from Atom Egoyan (Exotica, The Sweet Hereafter) is more self-consciously cerebral than it needs to be. An orphaned high school student in Toronto, encouraged by his intense (and rather odd) French and drama teacher, fabricates a story that his late father was a terrorist. The initial premise is more credible than it sounds, and it allows Egoyan to pursue a conceptual agenda concerning modern modes of communication, particularly Internet video chat. As is often the case in Egoyan's films, the lives of a half-dozen characters are explored from multiple vantage points in time and space as we circle around a deeply traumatic event. Although the film's mysteries are initially intriguing—and the performances (especially Arsinée Khanjian's as the teacher) are sensitive and compassionate—the film suffers from an overly schematic design that finally yields an ending that is too tidy, and a surfeit of seeming profundity that yields few insights. Rated R. —DF

G-FORCE—All the 3-D animation and celebrity voice-work in the world cannot change the fact that Disney's latest non-Pixar flop is one dull, lifeless and rather creepy waste of time. A specially trained squad of rodents and insects working for the U.S. government, along with their human minder (Zach Galifianakis, still too soon after The Hangover to take seriously), are dispatched to thwart a megalomaniacal billionaire (Bill Nighy in human form, slumming for a paycheck) and his shadowy conspirators from world domination. Photorealistic depictions of animated animals can work just fine (see Ratatouille), but when devoid of charm and a well-crafted screenplay, the sight of icky moles and crawling cockroaches is plain discomforting. And, the quartet of cutesy special agent guinea pigs is just a high-pitched medley away from an Alvin & the Chipmunks sequel. There are inexplicable car chases, an overblown effects-laden finale, and the de rigueur flatulence jokes. None of it makes the least bit of sense, and you eventually find yourself wishing the villain would do us all a favor and just hire an exterminator. Rated PG. —NM

LUCK—South Africa is the setting for this Bollywood action thriller with a great cast, including Sanjay Dutt and Imraan Khan. But it's directed by Soham Shah, whose last effort was the laughable supernatural jungle movie Kaal.

ORPHAN—The demon child, that classic horror archetype, returns to haunt grieving parents. Rated R.

SUMMER HOURS—Olivier Assayas' Summer Hours is a mournful yet clear-eyed and unsentimental look at how modern, global culture pulls traditional culture apart. When a matriarch of a French family with deep roots in fine art passes away, her house—and the formidable art collection that it contains—becomes surprisingly burdensome to her survivors. The film becomes a subtle and elegant exploration of culture and nationalism, and the ways in which objects can convey sentimental and symbolic weight. In the story's tale of the dissolution of an ancient homestead, there's an inevitable echo of Chekhov—particularly The Cherry Orchard. Assayas is no Chekhov, though talented he is, and he wisely steers clear of garment-rending histrionics in his subtle, thoughtful film. Not rated. Read our review.DF

THE UGLY TRUTH—Opposites attract when Abby (Katherine Heigl), a Sacramento TV news producer, is forced to incorporate the outrageous but popular on-air talents of Mike Chadway (Gerard Butler), a chauvinistic relationship expert. Before sparks fly between them, Mike plays Henry Higgins, improving Abby's love-life by virtue of a not-so-extreme makeover, transforming her from a beautiful, inexplicably single control-freak to a beautiful, busty bubble-head with hair extensions. The ugly truth is that this outlandish, startlingly vulgar battle of the sexes—devoid of discernable chemistry between its two leads—is utterly divorced from the romantic reality it claims to illuminate. Director Robert Luketic helms this misbegotten twist on Pygmalion, which also clumsily pilfers Cyrano de Bergerac, Tom Cruise's Frank T.J. Mackey from Magnolia, and the Meg Ryan restaurant orgasm scene in When Harry Met Sally. On the heels of her similarly misogynistic 500 Dresses, the dim prospects this dismal rom-com portends for Heigl's immediate film career are the surest evidence yet that Heigl's Izzie character on Grey's Anatomy just might beat her brain cancer. Rated R. —NM

Current Releases

AWAY WE GO—Sam Mendes, still best known for the vastly overrated American Beauty, is no stranger to smug, reductive cartoons of the American way of life. In this road movie, scripted by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, a young couple—Burt (John Krasinski) and his pregnant wife Verona (Maya Rudolph)—hit the road to find the perfect place to have their baby. Along the way, they visit friends and family who illustrate grotesque varieties of the American experience. The enterprise reeks of entitlement, where people don't realize how lucky they are not to have to work very hard for a living while they decide which "birthing experience" they want to have in which cool town. On the bright side, Maggie Gyllenhaal is a scream as a P.C. professor with an aversion to baby strollers. Rated R. —DF

BRÜNO—In Brüno, director Larry Charles and writer-star Sasha Baron Cohen set out to lampoon celebrity and, primarily, homophobia. But in most scenes, we aren't laughing at intolerance, we're laughing at Brüno. It's as if Cohen is baiting his audience by showing how much his rubes are homophobic to distract from how much he's making fun of his gay character. I don't think that Baron Cohen is intentionally doing gay minstrelsy. I think he wants to be a provocateur, but he doesn't how or who to provoke, and he uses caricature to get broad laughs because he has no real insights. While I assume that Cohen and Charles mean this film to be a challenge to (or at least a goof on) American stupidity and homophobia, it's more a product of those things than an affront to them. Rated R. —NG

THE HANGOVER—Todd Phillips's Frat Pack comedies (Road Trip, Old School), have always suffered from a certain narrative patchiness, but the tight script for this tale of the aftermath of a raucous bachelor party might be his strongest film yet. Rated R. —ZS

HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE—The recurring promise of "the darkest Harry Potter film yet" is finally realized the funniest, most visually sublime and, yes, darkest addition yet to the popular book-to-film series. More than any other, this Potter grasps the fact that the series' true magic rests not in passageways, potions and periphrastic spells, but in the relationships between the characters, particularly seminal trio of Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint) and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson), now steeped squarely in the hormonal whims of adolescent angst. But the film's real star is returning director David Yates, whose pitch-perfect craftsmanship not only distinguishes Half-Blood Prince from its forerunners, but also serves to validate the series as a whole. Rated PG. —NM

FOOD, INC—Thanks to a confluence of greed, ruthless efficiency, indifferent regulators and complaisant courts, a small group of huge corporations has taken control of the food chain. Robert Kenner's earnest doc is largely a synthesis of two of this generation's most important popular books about food production and consumption: Eric Schlosser's Fast Food Nation and Michael Pollan's The Omnivore's Dilemma. Some of the material feels pro forma or heavily masaged to make a rhetorical point, but Food, Inc.'s message is undeniably urgent. Still, one wishes for a few contrary view that would provide fresh grist for viewers who are likely already sympathetic with this film's agenda. Rated PG. —DF

ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS—A prehistoric heroic trio, consisting of mammoths Manny (voiced by Ray Romano) and Ellie (Queen Latifah), and saber-toothed tiger Diego (Denis Leary), embarks on a journey to save their sloth friend Sid (John Leguizamo) after an angry mama T-Rex captures him. Dawn of the Dinosaurs lacks the magic of the first Ice Age, but its story is more compelling than the inane but well-intentioned second installment, The Meltdown. Rated PG. —BD

MOON—With only a single live actor on the spaceship set for the entirety of the film, Moon is a laudable attempt at a return to the low-tech sci-fi films that we used to have. Duncan Jones's film is a pastiche of the classics, especially 2001: A Space Odyssey and Silent Running, with a few mystery-of-consciousness lifts from Blade Runner and The Matrix. Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is the sole human engineer stationed at a moon base operated by an Earth-based mining company. The story turns into somewhat of a space thriller when Sam discovers that he may or may not be a clone. . Rated R. —DF

MY SISTER'S KEEPER—Tickets for this four-hanky tearjerker should come with a week's worth of anti-depressants— let's just say I haven't seen this many grown men cry in a movie theater since the death of Spock. An 11-year-old girl, Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin), medically engineered in vitro as a donor-child by parents who periodically harvest her genetically-matched bodily fluids and organs for the benefit of her terminal leukemia-stricken sister, Kate (Sofia Vassilieva), sues Mom (Cameron Diaz) and Dad (Jason Patric) for medical emancipation. Rated PG-13. —NM

NEW YORK—Three carefree college friends (John Abraham, Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh), find their lives irrevocably changed by 9/11. Sam (Abraham) is falsely accused of terrorism and remanded to Guantánamo Bay. There is an extremely intense sequence of Sam's torture, with methods familiar from news reports, and well, who remembers anything after that? Director Kabir Khan (Kabul Express) was a war correspondent in Afghanistan; his film is ambitious but he has too much to say for just one movie. Not rated. —LB

THE PROPOSAL—Folksy Sitka, Alaska, warms up frosty Sandra Bullock, who plays tyrannical Margaret, a Canadian-born book editor about to be deported to the land of universal health care and blackmails her assistant, Drew (Ryan Reynolds), into marrying her for a green card. The couple returns home for his grandmother's 90th birthday. Rated PG-13. —LB

PUBLIC ENEMIES—Following the formula of Heat, his superb 1995 crime drama, Michael Mann juxtaposes lawmen with their lawless quarry, separating them by the thinnest of moral dividing lines—indeed, the film's title eventually assumes an ambiguous air. Here, Christian Bale plays Melvin Purvis, the G-man assigned by FBI head J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup) with the task of tracking and apprehending or killing John Dillinger and his cohorts. Dillinger (Johnny Depp) is cast as a violent, cunning criminal, but also a PR-conscious celebrity keenly aware of his populist appeal among the Depression-era public. Less a biopic than a glossy, stylish elegy, this film ultimately is more a tribute to Mann's own craftsmanship than it is to the doomed Dillinger—or the men who captured him. Rated R. —NM

TRANSFORMERS 2: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN—To quote Team America: World Police, "Why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies?" Unsurprisingly, Transformers 2 is just as bombastic as the first film. Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and main squeeze Mikaela (Megan Fox) again find themselve in the middle of a war for universal supremacy between the Transformers. There are Mario video games that have more depth—indeed, sitting through Transformers is like watching a 150-minute-long arcade game. Rated PG-13. —NM

WHATEVER WORKS—In Woody Allen's latest, Larry David plays Boris Yellnikoff, a physics genius turned chess instructor who takes in a ditsy Southern belle played by Evan Rachel Wood. David and Allen create a thoughtfully developed protagonist in Boris, one of the most fascinating characters in any of Allen's movies. Like most of Allen's later comedies this movie suffers from dialogue arrhythmia, a miscast leading lady, and a lazy repetition of ideas. But also like his later, funny films it is packed with moments of brilliance, bizarre hilarity, and a formal and aesthetic maturity. Rated PG-13. —NG

Due to the possibility of last-minute scheduling changes, we recommend calling ahead to theaters to confirm showtimes.
