Fast cars and slow love lives are showcased this week.
“CARS 2,” GRADE A-MINUS: Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and Mater (Larry the Cable Guy) compete in the World Grand Prix. A high-octane version of the original.
“CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE,” GRADE D-PLUS: Billed as a comedy, this dour and depressing story about divorce, adultery, betrayal and separation never balances the angst with lighter moments. Stars Steve Carell and Julianne Moore.
ALSO NEW THIS WEEK:
“Water for Elephants”: A veterinary student and a circus performer are brought together through their compassion for an elephant. Reese Witherspoon and Robert Pattinson star.
