Male moviegoers who left heel marks in movie lobbies while being dragged into screenings of the chick-flick juggernaut 'The Twilight Saga: New Moon' last weekend will get some relief over the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend with the arrivals of 'Old Dogs' and 'Ninja Assassin.' But be warned: forcing a girlfriend or spouse to see 'Ninja Assassin' would be way more than getting even.
'Old Dogs' is actually an old-fashioned family movie starring John Travolta and Robin Williams as aging bachelors who, on the eve of a life-changing business deal, are placed in charge of a pair of rascally twins -- with predictably cute complications to follow. Critics hate it -- it got a 22 out of 100 on Metacritic -- but the last comedy Travolta did with director Walt Becker was 2007's 'Wild Hogs,' which laughed at critics all the way to the bank. It grossed $168 million.
