JUST GO WITH IT
Adam Sandler has the hots for Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker (who doesn’t?) and wants to marry her. But first he’s going to need to cover up a little white lie concerning his marital status. And to do that, he enlists his assistant (Jennifer Aniston) to play out that fib to his beloved’s satisfaction. What do you want to bet ol’ Adam winds up falling for Jen instead?
Hunky Channing Tatum plays a Roman solider intent on honoring his father by unearthing a golden emblem on British soil. Sounds boring, but I sense the ladies will be too busy checking out Tatum’s abs to notice. Ditto for the men, who will eat up the inevitable blood-and-guts battles.
GNOMEO & JULIET
Sir Elton John provides the music and serves as executive producer for this animated tale that re-imagines Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet” as a comedy played out by a cast of gnomes.
JUSTIN BIEBER: NEVER SAY NEVER
If you’re a girl 14 or younger, you know “The Bieb” is an adolescent god. But if you’re an old fogy like me, here’s your chance to learn about the kid everyone seems to be talking about. Part documentary, part concert film, “Never Say Never” is sure to make “The Bieb” even bigger.
OSCAR-NOMINATED ANIMATED SHORTS
See all five of this year’s nominees, plus two extras, for the price of one. Highlights include Pixar’s “Day & Night” and a British-made delight called “The Gruffalo,” featuring the voices of Helena Bonham Carter, Tom Wilkinson, Robbie Coltrane and John Hurt.
OSCAR-NOMINATED LIVE-ACTION SHORTS
If you prefer live-action shorts, this set of five nominated films is equally strong with “The Confession” and “The Crush” proving the picks of the litter. Both films feature children confronting such mundane things as first confession and a crush on teacher. But what happens in both is hardly innocent. Be prepared to be shocked – and amazed.
