BIG MOMMAS: LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON – Martin Lawrence & Co. hit Tyler Perry where he lives. They take the black-man-in-drag wars into Madea country — Atlanta — for this sad excuse for a cross-dressing sequel, a humorless mash-up of “White Chicks” and “Glee.” PG-13 for sexual humor, brief violence. 105 minutes.
DRIVE ANGRY – Nobody goes off the deep end like His Satanic Majesty Nicolas Cage, and nobody gives better value in bad movies. This very entertaining B-, C- or D-movie is an over-the-top, in-your-face grindhouse gore picture. R for brutal violence, grisly images, graphic sexual content, nudity and pervasive language. 100 minutes.
GNOMEO & JULIET — Animated riff with yard gnomes as our star-crossed lovers doesn’t have a single original idea in its pointy head, but it’s spirited and brisk . G. 84 minutes.
HALL PASS — Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis are friends trapped in stereotypically stagnant marriages. Jenna Fischer and Christina Applegate are their wives, cliched, spiteful nags advised to give them a weeklong “hall pass” from marriage. Naturally, these guys have no idea what to do — because the desperate Farrelly brothers have no idea either. R for crude and sexual humor, language, graphic nudity and drugs. 105 minutes.
I AM NUMBER FOUR — Great, another Chosen One. D.J. Caruso’s action tale is mostly familiar stuff, presenting the latest teen outsider coming into possession of his latent superpowers. PG-13 for intense violence and action, brief language. 109 minutes.
JUST GO WITH IT — Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s romantic comedy is stuffed with narcissists saying and doing the dumbest, cruelest things. PG-13 for crude and sexual content, partial nudity, drug references, language. 116 minutes.
JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER — Part biopic, part concert film and all crowd-pleaser, this celebration of the pop phenom knows exactly how to send its target audience of tween girls into a tizzy. G. 105 minutes.
THE KING’S SPEECH – You can’t help but succumb to this weighty-yet-uplifting period drama based on a true story about British royalty. R for language. 118 minutes.
THE ROOMMATE – Timid variation on “Single White Female.” PG-13 for violence, menace, sex, language, teen partying. 93 minutes.
UNKNOWN — Liam Neeson continues his fascinating late-career path in this chilly little thriller about amnesia, mistrust and lost identity. PG-13 for intense violence and action, brief sexual content. 106 minutes.
