This is your dilemma this week: which buddy comedy do you want to see? One about masked crimefighters confronting evildoers, or one about ordinary joes confronting adultery and betrayal?
'The Green Hornet' (PG-13)
Starring: Seth Rogen, Cameron Diaz, Jay Chou, Christoph Waltz, Tom Wilkinson
Directed by: Michel Gondry
What's It About? It's the latest version of the radio serial-turned-comic-turned-TV series about newspaper heir Britt Reid (Rogen) and his gadget-and-martial-arts expert sidekick Kato (Chou, in the role that made Bruce Lee famous), fighting crime in a tricked out car.
Why Should You See It? Rogen doesn't seem like a typical superhero (though he's a lot leaner and meaner than he was in 'Knocked Up'), but maybe that's a good thing. He also co-wrote the script with his 'Superbad' writing partner, Evan Goldberg. Similarly, surealist Michel Gondry isn't your typical comic-book movie director, but he gets a lifetime pass from us for 'Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,' so we'll happily check out anything he shoots.
