Welcome to the second weekend of the year! All filled up on those Oscar-hungry "platform" releases and the Nicolas Cage occult films? Good, because this weekend we get ... a romantic comedy and an action hero flick. Oh, and Paul Giamatti as an obnoxious bastard, which is always fun.
'The Green Hornet' -- "Gets Rogen's career as a superhero off to a good start, and proves that Gondry can make a movie that really synthesizes his handmade style with something polished enough to succeed in the mainstream." -- Todd Gilchrist (full review)
'The Dilemma' -- "There are surprisingly few laughs in the film, and several scenes that were clearly intended to be straight-up serious, despite being built on a premise that only works if you don't take it seriously." -- Eric D. Snider (full review)
'Barney's Version' -- "It's the rare feature that can offend and charm at the same time, that can take a man who always plays the acerbic loser and make the same theme seem fresh." -- Monika Bartyzel (full review)
