Opening This Week

FRACTURE—Ryan Gosling and Anthony Hopkins don't disgrace themselves in this Agatha Christie-esque mystery about a murderous engineer (Hopkins) who confesses to killing his wife and proceeds to manipulate the case to his advantage. Some clever dialogue and a decent twist at the end can't overcome the flat characters and padded-out plot. Rated R.—ZS

HOT FUZZ—Simon Pegg plays Nick Angel, a by-the-book bobby whose overachievement and high arrest rate make the rest of the London Police Service look so lousy that he is reassigned to the fictional 'burb of Sandford, where he is assigned a dimwitted new partner (Nick Frost). Pop-culture references litter the screen, from buddy-cop films to Agatha Christie to horror flicks like The Omen and The Wicker Man, but it's hard to parody material that is already beyond parodying: When screenwriter Edgar Wright fashions an extended finale that references Point Break and Bad Boys II, it is difficult to divine where the setup ends and the punchline begins. Rated R. —NM

IN THE LAND OF WOMEN—A shaggy dog weepie that fuses Dark Victory with The Graduate, Jon Kasdan's feature debut begins with a break-up. Nursing a broken heart, Carter (The O.C.'s Adam Brody) decides to hide out in Michigan and nurse his aged Gran. He listens, and so becomes entangled with the family drama across the street. Meg Ryan (so plastic surgery-ed she looks like she's in a witness protection program) plays mom Sarah, struggling with a breast cancer diagnosis. Her mopey daughter Lucy (Kristen Stewart) paints swoopy emo canvases in the basement. Sensible younger sib Paige (Makenzie Vega) is quickly forgotten, along with poor Olympia Dukakis, playing Grandma. There is an unusually obtrusive pop soundtrack, and the production design is bogus­: There are so many artificial flowers in Sarah's front yard it looks like her landscaper is from Munchkinland. Brody is adorable, but the meandering, autobiographical, coming of age plot loses focus. You cry, and life goes on. Blah, blah. Rated PG-13. —LB

KYA LOVE STORY HAI (WHAT A LOVE STORY!)—Kaajal (Ayesha Takia) brushes aside the attentions of Arjun (Tussar Kapoor) in favor of a more financially secure suitor, but for feckless Arjun, it's true love. Shot in South Africa, this bubblegum love triangle features Ayesha, one of Bollywood's more talented ingénues, and an item number featuring lissome Kareena Kapoor. —LB

STARTER FOR TEN—Anxious to escape from a bleak seaside town in Essex, James McAvoy (dreamy Mr. Tumnus the faun from Narnia) gets a place at the University of Bristol and pursues his dream of playing for the school's University Challenge TV quiz team. Freshman year provides a chance for reinvention, the only ticklish point being one is still the same person. Gobsmacked by the social disturbances of sexual possibility, copious alcohol consumption and class warfare, Brian struggles to balance his old mates and his new girls. Set in 1985, the Brit pop of The Cure, New Order, Tears for Fears, Wham, Echo and the Bunnymen and the Smiths provide the musical tang of autobiography. Although—thankfully—winning the quiz show is revealed to be beside the point, it's a bit too bad that redemption pivots on the choice between the blonde (upperclass) siren and the brunette (Jewish) social activist. Rated PG-13. —LB

VACANCY—Imagine a 90-minute version of Edgar Wright's fake trailer Don't from Grindhouse ("DON'T go up the stairs! DON'T look out the window!"). Luke Wilson and Kate Beckinsale play an unpleasant L.A. couple who find themselves stuck at a run-down motel where the voyeuristic staff is a bit ... hostile. Frank Whaley is fun as the twitchy manager, but the script by Mark L. Smith plays like an extended exercise from a screenwriting class full of cheap shocks and increasingly contrived twists, including a literal version of Chekhov's rule about the gun over the fireplace in the first act being fired in the third. The plot eventually devolves into a series of scenes where the couple cautiously peeks through the door and ... you get the idea. Rated R. —ZS

Current Releases

300—Directed by Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead) as a cinematic adaptation of Sin City author Frank Miller's graphic novel 300, this film attempts to retell the story of the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C., where a force of 300 spirited Spartans fight off a million man march of pillaging Persians. But Snyder gets lost in the eye-popping details of Miller's pulp fiction world—the historical context becomes muddled as the film turns into a school boy's fantasy of a romanticized militant society and ends up as little more than a green screen's wet dream. Rated R. —KJ

AQUA TEEN HUNGER FORCE COLON MOVIE FILM FOR THEATERS—Watching this film version of the psychedelic Adult Swim cartoon is like having a conversation with a drunken friend for 90 minutes: It's occasionally hilarious, but after a while you're just waiting for it to end. The non-plot involves talking fast food products Master Shake, Frylock and Meatwad dealing with an evil exercise machine destined to destroy the world that's also sought by several aliens, the Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past and a talking slice of watermelon assisted by Rush drummer Neal Peart. Some jokes, such as a Civil War-era video game with wooden controllers and a death metal "let's all go to the lobby" intro, are wickedly clever pop-cultural riffs, but the intentionally confused narrative drags. Hence, it's destined to be a classic for generations of stoned college students. Rated R. —ZS

ARE WE DONE YET?—To ask the question is to know the answer. A remake of Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House, with Ice Cube in the Cary Grant role. Rated PG-13.

BLADES OF GLORY—Will Ferrell channels the same dim-witted, bloated buffoon he's played in most recent films as Chazz Michael Michaels, a sex-obsessed, leather-clad figure skater. Joining Ferrell is Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite), who plays the Dorothy Hamill-haired rival, Jimmy MacElroy. Making fun of Olympic sports may be just fine, and a bevy of figure skating icons are on board but sometimes the film breaches the line of campy fun by exploiting gay stereotypes for an already sexually-anxious teenage set to laugh at and mock. Rated PG-13. —KJ

DISTURBIA—This Rear Window for the YouTube generation has a sound set-up. A troubled teen, Kale (Shia LaBeouf), sentenced to three months house arrest for slugging his teacher, whiles away his time spying on neighbors using binoculars, camcorders and sundry tech gadgets, including leering at a comely girl-next-door (Sarah Roemer). His pastime reaps benefits once Kale becomes convinced that a neighbor (David Morse) is a serial killer. LaBeouf and Roemer are no Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly, but they exude a spunky exuberance that befits the film's contemporary setting, as when a scene of them playfully decorating Kale's house-arrest anklet becomes a sensual escapade. Problems emerge in the final act when the breezy yet taut narrative is cast aside for formulaic chills and thrills that never tie into its earlier themes of voyeurism, modern surveillance and suburban malaise. Rated PG-13. —NM

FIREHOUSE DOG—Director Todd Holland (Malcolm in the Middle) puts a twist on the doggie-do-good film in this warm hearted tale about a movie star pup who becomes a bona fide fire house hero (read: he saves people from burning buildings). The film misses its mark with a tired satirizing of big budget Hollywood (pampered pooch Rexxx stars in films like The Fast and the Furriest and Jurassic Bark) but hits it home with a poignant look at the father/son relationship as pre-teen Shane Fahey (Josh Hutcherson) learns acceptance and forgiveness from his father (Bruce Greenwood). It's no Benji or Beethoven, but the doggie capers will keep kiddos entertained and parents will appreciate the film's understated moral mettle. Rated PG. —KJ

GRINDHOUSE—In this two-director, three-hour, double-feature tribute to exploitation movies of the 1970s, Robert Rodriguez serves up the exuberantly imagined zombie flick Planet Terror, followed by Quentin Tarantino's superior car-chase thriller Death Proof. Though both movies stay expertly within genre bounds, they're even more fascinating as death-of-film meditations (the first shot on DV, the second defiantly on celluloid) with notable religious resonances, especially in Tarantino's latest tribute to the idea of resurrection. Hardly seems coincidental that the film opened at Easter. Rated R. —GC

THE HOAX—Depicting author/con man Clifford Irving's nearly successful 1971 campaign to have McGraw-Hill publish a bogus autobiography of Howard Hughes, this flashy but deeply unsatisfying drama's problems mainly stem from the producers' decision to a hire a hot young screenwriter, William Wheeler, who invents countless episodes and thereby trashes the film's capacity for incisive truth-telling. A modicum of compensation comes in director Lasse Halstrom's deft handling of a fine cast led by Richard Gere and Alfred Molina. Reviewed on page 56. Rated R. —GC

THE ITALIAN—At a bleak Russian orphanage with a perpetual icy film of moisture in the air, a doleful little boy has a rare chance to be adopted by a sunny Italian couple. Clutching a tattered copy of Kipling's The Jungle Book, a book about another wild child returned to civilization, Vanya sets off to find his mother. Bedeviled by a system who treats him alternately as flotsam or a commodity, but never as a little boy, he stubbornly attempts to choose his own future. Not a cheerful film, and one that portrays the former Soviet Union as pathologically dysfunctional, The Italian does eventually provide vindication for a dreamer. Rated R. —LB

THE LAST MIMZY—Two children, Noah and Emma (Chris O'Neil and Rhiannon Leigh Wryn), find a mysterious puzzle box washed up near their lakeshore home. They fiddle and play with the mysterious objects inside, which includes Mimzy, an ominous stuffed bunny which purrs like a Tribble. Ultimately, spooky Emma, played by the accomplished Wyrn, takes center stage. A trippy meld of Tibetan Buddhism, nanotechnology and Alice in Wonderland, The Last Mimzy takes some unexpected turns (at least for those unfamiliar with the 1943 source work by Lewis Padgett), has a welcome message of environmental activism and thankfully eschews potty humor, condescension and kid-lit clichés. Rated PG. —LB

THE LIVES OF OTHERS—It is no coincidence that German writer-director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck sets this socio-thriller about repression in Communist-ruled East Germany during the year 1984, as the German Democratic Republic was the literal fruition of an Orwellian dystopia. A secret police agent (Ulrich Mühe) engaging in warrantless searches and surveillance finds redemption through exposure to an embattled playwright (Sebastian Koch) and his actress girlfriend (Martina Gedeck). Donnersmarck crafts a sublime, somber and visually subfusc portrait of a modern-day police state and its timorous citizenry, who carry on as people they are not in obedience to a spurious nation-state. Rated R. —NM

MEET THE ROBINSONS—Vacillating between unbearably saccharine and insufferably frantic, the latest dud from Disney Feature Animation is a bit of CG-sigh. Lewis, a precocious 12-year-old orphan/inventor looking for his birth mother, meets young stranger Wilbur Robinson, who whisks Lewis into the future in a time machine to track down the dastardly Bowler Hat Guy, a Snidely Whiplash clone and the film's lone highlight. Rated G. —NM

THE NAMESAKE—Gogol Ganguli is mortified by his first name, a mark of his Indian parents' eccentricity. What possessed his father to name him after his favorite author, the Russian Nikolai Gogol? Gogol struggles to decide what's meaningful to him amidst the masala of his suburban American life and his family's stubborn Bengali traditions. Director Mira Nair and screenwriter Sooni Taraporevala's richly textured adaptation of Jhumpa Lahiri's novel is unusually faithful to the book's spirit, a meditation on how the most meaningful personal rebellions sometimes have deeply conservative roots. Rated PG-13. —LB

PATHFINDER—A muddled, uneventful exercise in blue-screening, this film is set in pre-Columbian North America where a Viking boy, abandoned by his kinsman, turns against the marauders as an adult (Karl Urban) after they slaughter his adoptive tribe. The standard revenge formula ensues, replete with incongruous costumes, computer-generated gore camouflaged by a drab palette and hokey dialogue. The film is bereft of anything remotely interesting, leaving you only to ponder such innocuous queries as why the Native Americans circa 900 A.D. speak English at the same time the Norsemen's dialogue is subtitled. Rated R. —NM

PERFECT STRANGER—A B-movie with an A-list cast, this pulp thriller is a far cry from the Hitchcockian slow burn horror it aims for and more like a glossy advertisement for product placement (Heineken, Reebok and Victoria's Secret share equal screen time with the cast). Halle Berry plays Rowena Price, an investigative reporter who gets caught in a deadly cat-and-mouse game when she attempts to uncover the story behind a childhood friend's gristly murder. Matching hot star with hot star, Bruce Willis is cast as the big-name, smugly suave ad executive Price has pinned for the murder. The plot unfolds slowly into a series of steamy late night text messages where an online affair and a jealous wife threaten Price's safety as she flirts her way into the truth. But the plot becomes convoluted and confusing, rendering this shock fest a dud. This may be seriously sexy celluloid but it's as vapid as a one-night stand. Rated R. —KJ

PREMONITION—A plot-driven, vaguely moralistic blend of The Sixth Sense and Memento destined for endless repeats as the FX Sunday Afternoon Movie, Premonition stars Sandra Bullock as a housewife who finds herself living the days before and after the untimely death of her husband (Nip/Tuck's Julian McMahon) out of order. The film offers a fairly brutal set of punishments for contemplating adultery, not putting up safety stickers for your kids, and worst of all, losing faith. Apparently, in the movies, not believing in God gets you a one-way ticket to the Twilight Zone. Rated PG-13. —ZS

REDLINE—With any luck, this movie will be remembered as something other than the one Eddie Griffin was shooting when he crashed the producer's $1.2 million Enzo Ferrari. Rated R.

SHOOTER—Occasional references to WMD, the 9/11 report and Abu Ghraib add a dash of zeitgeist to the thriller's early goings, but once Danny Glover's Defense Department heavy and Ned Beatty's Cheney-esque U.S. senator start mumbling and stumbling around, the entire spectacle devolves into a flaccid, left-wing wet dream. With Mark Wahlberg. Rated R. —NM

SLOW BURN—Ray Liotta is the cop and LL Cool J is the gang leader in this urban thriller. Rated R.

TMNT—Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Say no more. Rated PG.

WILD HOGS—Not so much bad as painfully pointless. Rated PG-13. —NM
