Opening This Week

ALL THE BEST—Diwali celebrations bring this ensemble romp featuring Fardeen Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Bipasha Basu and Ajay Devgan. The scrambling liars covering up their misdeeds are directed by the perpetrator of Golmaal and Golmaal Returns.LB

BLUE—Three adventurers (Akshay Kumar, Sanjay Dutt, Zayed Khan) seek their fortunes under the azure waters of the Bahamas. The insinuating score is by A.R. Rahman, his first since he won the Slumdog Millionaire Oscar, and includes a hot item number by Australian Madonna-be Kylie Minogue. —LB

THE BOYS ARE BACKThe Boys are Back is an emotionally herky-jerky tearjerker about the travails of Joe Warr (Clive Owen), a father raising two boys and trying to maintain a career after losing his wife to cancer. The bulk of the movie takes place during a summer-long visit from Joe's son from his first marriage, the teenage Harry (George McKay). The Boys makes you feel sorry for every character involved and rewards you for the easy empathy it rings from you. Judging from the sniffles in the theater that began at 10 minutes in and didn't stop until the closing credits, this film excels at its questionable intent. Rated PG-13. Read our review. —NG

HUMPDAY—Lynn Shelton's sly, marvelous comedy is one of the year's best films, beginning with a premise that followers of American indies may recognize: A 30-something man, happily married and settling down in the Pacific Northwest, receives a surprise visit from a hirsute blond college friend. But this isn't Old Joy; instead, Shelton's film is something like a Judd Apatow remake of Kelly Reichardt's fine, somber 2006 film. When Andrew (Joshua Leonard) arrives in the home of Ben (Mark Duplass) and his wife Anna (Alycia Delmore), the two men can't help but size each other up. A night of drink and drugs leads to a proposition from which neither can back down. Virtually every scene is a marvel of fine, naturalistic acting. This is one of the year's best films, and Shelton creates compelling, believable characters with natural speech patterns that mask a tightly constructed narrative. Rated R. Read our review.DF

LIMITS OF CONTROL—Jim Jarmusch returns with a Spanish crime story. Rated R.

LAW-ABIDING CITIZEN—When everyguy Clyde Shelton (Gerard Butler) watches a man who killed his family cop a plea bargain with a prosecutor (Jamie Foxx, sleepwalking), Shelton schemes for 10 years before hatching his elaborate brand of righteous comeuppance. Director F. Gary Gray aims to reprise Charles Bronson's 1970s vigilante flicks. Problem is, in Death Wish, Bronson didn't take aim at criminals, attorneys and judges alike, which Shelton does with disconcerting relish. Besides the gaping plot holes and silly contrivances, this wingnut's wet dream fails as either a moral object lesson or a competent actioner. There is no ethical equivalence between Shelton's personal tragedy and his indefensible rampage, while all's not well just because it ends with Rice learning to be a better daddy and not cut deals with killers. This is a reprehensible film only the Timothy McVeighs of the world could love. Rated R. —NM

MAIN AUR MRS. KHANNA (ME AND MRS. KHANNA)—The international airport in Melbourne, Australia is the crossroad for a career versus love drama as Samir (Salman Khan) leaves his devoted wife, Raina (Kareena Kapoor), to pursue success, leaving buddy Akash (Sohail Khan) to pursue Raina. —LB

THE STEPFATHER— A teen thinks his stepfather is evil. He's right. Rated PG-13.

WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE—Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich) releases his hotly anticipated adaptation of the classic children's book. Rated PG.

Current Releases

9—A real eye for subtlety and characterization sets this film apart from your average action-saturated doomsday flick. Rated PG-13. —BD

BRIGHT STAR—Jane Campion's latest is the story of the love affair between poet John Keats (Ben Whishaw) and the sexy flirt Fanny Brawne (Abbie Cornish). Most of the action takes place in and around the house that Abby's family moves into, where Keats also lives. The pace of Bright Star ambles along, luxuriating in John's malaise and poking around the corners of the rambling house that he and Abby occupy. One of the year's best. Rated PG. —NG

CAPITALISM: A LOVE STORY—Whether this latest entry in Michael Moore's canon of dogmatic documentaries will appeal to you or not hinges, as always, on your political bent. Capitalism is a broadside attack against the haves in the name of the have-nots; here, Moore is less focused on a single issue than an economic system that he brands as "evil" and "immoral." On the other hand, Moore's oeuvre of manipulative editing, juvenile japery and cheap theatrics has rarely felt more tiresome. Rated R. —NM

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS—Expanding on the classic 1978 children's story penned by Judi Barrett, the tale concerns inventor Flint Lockwood, who produces this phenomenon to rescue his small harbor town from an all-sardine diet. Screenwriters Phil Lord and Chris Miller use the original plot as a springboard to address America's dark side of excess, expanding waistlines and waste management issues. Rated PG. —KJ

COUPLES RETREAT—The kid with coke-bottle glasses from A Christmas Story, aka "Ralphie" (Peter Billingsley) directs this tedious comedy about four couples who visit destination island "Eden" for a little harmonious marriage healing. It's obvious that the beautiful landscape of Bora Bora was the calling card for the cast of Vince Vaughn, Jon Favreau, Kristin Davis, Kristen Bell, Malin Akerman, and the token fat dude Faizin Love (and Ralphie for that matter). But paradisical setting only serve to raise jealous wish-we-were-there-instead-of-here feelings among filmgoers. A hodgepodge of humdrum character flaws takes this film into glumsville territory. Perhaps the film's biggest fault is general comedic lameness, the pigeonholing of African American actors into shallow stereotypes and banking on shark attacks and a dry-humping yoga instructor for laughs. Vaughn, Favreau and Billingsley are each comedy stalwarts, but here they don't measure up to their reputations. —KJ

DISTRICT 9—South African director Neil Blomkamp's film provides a glimpse of the chaos and racism that ensues in Johannesburg when aliens, marooned on Earth for over 20 years, attempt to integrate into human society. Blomkamp's quasi-documentary style lends an unsettling verisimilitude to not just the aliens themselves, but also the social, legal and corporate constructs that have sprung up around them. Rated R. —NM

DO KNOT DISTURB—David Dhawan, the king of frantic farce, directs Govinda, his old favorite, along with Ritesh Deshmukh, Susmita Sen and Lara Dutta in an adultery comedy of errors.

FAME—The last time Fame hit screens—1980—America valued modesty. A peppy tale trailing a bunch of gifted kids at New York City's performing arts high school had pizzazz. What was once fresh is now tired. Today, every kid thinks s/he's special and the culture reeks with everyone's sweaty desire for fame. Unsure whether to be a mockdoc, or just drop trou and be a musical, Fame falters on both counts. The only time the screen jolts awake are moments when director Kevin Tancharoen actually lets somebody perform. And, where are all the gay people? These days, shouldn't there be mention of job skills, and more emphasis on the diploma? The cast is ill served by the tepidly updated script. Remember whose name? Rated PG. —LB

THE HANGOVER—Todd Phillips's Frat Pack comedies (Road Trip, Old School), have always suffered from 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

INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS—After a knockout opening that's followed by questionable stuff, something like a brilliant, smart and surprising film emerges when the action moves to Paris, where the objectives of the Basterds converge with a plan a young woman with a grudge cooks up in her movie theater—all of which dovetails with Quentin Tarantino's ever-diverse and encyclopedic film passion. Rated R. —DF

THE INFORMANT!—This film is Steven Soderbergh's second fact-based whistleblower drama, but while Erin Brockovich was a rousing triumph of good over evil, The Informant! wrings comedy from the genre's conventions. Matt Damon plays Mark Whitacre, a biochemist who reveals price-fixing at Archer Daniels Midland (hello, Food, Inc.!). Damon gained weight for a role that, frankly, cries out for Philip Seymour Hoffman (who's played this kind of role in films ranging from Owning Mahowny to Charlie Wilson's War). While Damon lacks Hoffman's flamboyance and genius, he makes up for it with sheer gameness. Doug J. Meerdink's production design is brutally effective in turning the mid-1990s into a period piece. Rated PG-13. —DF

THE INVENTION OF LYING—Ricky Gervais has made a successful career by making us uncomfortable, but his latest, which he co-wrote and directed with Matthew Robinson, doesn't measure up to his earlier work. Gervais) plays an unsuccessful screenwriter and hapless loser in a world where everyone is excessively and annoyingly truthful. Rated PG-13. —BD

IT MIGHT GET LOUD—Centered around the stories, techniques and eccentricities of three of rock and roll's most iconic guitarists—Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page, The White Stripes' Jack White, U2's The Edge (that thoughtless, traffic-jamming asshole...)—It Might Get Loud winds mystical clichés "about the music, man," around performances and snippets of stories that are alternately curious, humorous and enlightening. Rated PG. —DGC

JULIE & JULIA—As Julia Child, the breathless enthusiast who rescued American cooking for a generation, Meryl Streep is an absolute delight, and poor Amy Adams doesn't have a chance. Rated PG-13. —DF

LOVE HAPPENS—We meet Burke Ryan (Aaron Eckhart), a widower who took the pain of his loss and fashioned from it a motivational book on how to move on from the death of a loved one. Enter Eloise Chandler (Jennifer Aniston), a flower shop owner who helps Burke embrace the idea that "when one thing ends, something else begins." Rated PG-13. —BD

PARANORMAL ACTIVITY—Operating from the premise of video footage recovered by the surviving families of a slain San Diego couple, this low-budget horror flick gives a big wink and nod to The Blair Witch Project. Director-writer Oren Peli's focus on the slow-burning tension and fear between the couple and their paranormally charged environment is momentarily entrancing but the amateur affect of the leads and a tired bag of fright tricks ultimately undermine this film's Blair Witch aspirations. Rated R. —KJ

PANDORUM—Futuristic thriller in which crew members of a deep space flight wake up early. Bloody hijinks ensue. Dennis Quaid stars. Rated R

SURROGATES—In Surrogates, technological advances in the not-too-distant future have led to a world where humans live in physical isolation, interacting with the outside world via humanoid replicas they control remotely via "stim chairs." Meanwhile, a sizable minority of humans rejects this unreality and chooses to cordon themselves inside sovereign, robot-free reservations. Heady stuff, indeed, and undoubtedly more prescient and enduring than the cyberpunk whodunit director Jonathan Mostow lacquers over this pale, well, surrogate for Blade Runner, I, Robot, and even WALL-E. As a police detective assigned to investigate the serial killing of avatars and their hosts, a game Bruce Willis gets to reject his own plasticine proxy, and by extension his long-lost '80s action star visage. Too bad the nonsensical plot is as cold and lifeless as the androids. Rated PG-13. —NM

TYLER PERRY'S I CAN DO BAD ALL BY MYSELF—Taraji P. Henson stars as April, an alcoholic nightclub singer who finds herself having to take care of her niece Jennifer (newcomer Hope Olaide Wilson) and two nephews after their grandmother disappears. Rated PG-13. —BD

WAKE UP, SID!—Appealing Ranbhir Kapoor plays Sidharth, a trendy Mumbai loafer with no desire to grow up and assume his adult responsibilities. Perhaps winsome Konkona Sen Sharma will change his mind, in this film produced by ace director Karan Johar.

WHIP IT—Bliss (Ellen Page) is a half-pint with pent-up anger against her mom (Marcia Gay Hayden), who's pushing her to compete in the genteel Miss Blue Bonnet pageant. Instead, Bliss revels in a different femininity after a chance encounter with a roller derby team inspires her to get out her skates and start kicking ass as Babe Ruthless. Rated PG-13. —LB

ZOMBIELAND—This take-the-zombies-to-the-amusement-park romp isn't as funny or scary as Shaun of the Dead but, at an efficient 88 minutes, it's an amusing diversion boasting some nifty art direction, makeup and performances. The film chronicles the uneasy bond forged between four survivors of a zombie pandemic who are en route to an amusement park they hope will serve as utopian refuge from a world gone mad. It's Bill Murray who steals the movie with a cameo that is his funniest onscreen offering in years. Rated R. —NM
