Opening This WeekBRÜNO—Although we've been spared the intimate view that Eminem got at the MTV Movie Awards (in a staged prank), we still haven't been able to avoid Sacha Baron Cohen for months. Cohen, now known as the gay fashion reporter Brüno, really wants you to see his film. And you know you want to, too. Rated R.

I LOVE YOU BETH COOPER—Ahh, high school movies. You've long since graduated, but you'll watch them anyway, recognizing yourself in the characters of American Pie, of Clueless, of Ten Things I Hate About You. And perhaps this one: Valedictorian Denis Cooverman (Paul Rust) gives a graduation speech about living with no regrets, which logically leads him to declare his hidden love for class hottie Beth Cooper (Hayden Panettiere). She's flattered by the declaration, and later shows up at his house with her female posse. Denis and his best friend Rich (Jack Carpenter) are then targeted by Kevin (Shawn Roberts), Beth's overly jealous boyfriend, with his own gang of Army buddies. Shenanigans ensure as Denis and Rich try to stay one step ahead of Beth's vengeful boyfriend, keep up with Beth's ever-changing whims and make memories that will last a lifetime. Oh yes, and they learn something about themselves in the process. Underneath the hilarious hijinks and accurately tuned dialogue is a very sweet undertone as the characters try to navigate their relationships. This ground has been covered many times before, no question, but that doesn't mean it isn't fun. Rated PG-13. —SE
MOON—With only a single live actor on the spaceship set for the entirety of the film, Moon is a laudable attempt at a return to the low-tech sci-fi films that we used to have. Duncan Jones's film is a pastiche of the classics, especially 2001: A Space Odyssey and Silent Running, with a few mystery-of-consciousness lifts from Blade Runner and The Matrix. Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) is the sole human engineer stationed at a moon base operated by an Earth-based mining company. The story turns into a space thriller when Sam discovers that he may or may not be a clone. Otherwise, his only companion is Gerty, a talking robot to whom Kevin Spacey supplies the voice, bringing a HAL-like creepiness that enlivens the proceedings even as it turns out to be unwarranted. Numerous liberties with the physical reality of the moon undercut the film's claim to scientific relevance, and the stuff about cloning doesn't make sense. This film is the aesthetic equivalent of a 1950s suborbital launch, rather than one that speaks to the paramount engineering challenge of the 21st century, that of creating clean energy. Rated R. —DF

SHORT KUT: THE CON IS ON—An aspiring director (Akshaye Khanna) and a "junior artiste" (what we call a supporting actor) played by funnyman Arshad Warsi seek stardom in Bollywood, not through hard work, but short cuts. This low-budget film is produced by Slumdog Millionaire's quiz master, Anil Kapoor. —LB
Current ReleasesAWAY WE GO—Sam Mendes, still best known for the vastly overrated American Beauty, is no stranger to smug, reductive cartoons of the American way of life. In this road movie, scripted by Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida, a young couple—Burt (John Krasinski) and his pregnant wife Verona (Maya Rudolph)—hit the road to find the most perfect place to have their baby. Along the way, they visit friends and family who illustrate grotesque varieties of the American experience. As Verona, Rudolph is charismatic but haughty; Burt can be charming but just as often he's a caricature of a bearded, flannel-shirt-wearing, gently ironic, indie-rock guy. . The entire enterprise reeks of entitlement, where people don't realize how lucky they are not to have to work very hard for a living while they decide which "birthing experience" they want to have in which cool town. Soporific folk-pop and a slackness of execution induce torpor throughout. On the bright side, Maggie Gyllenhaal is a scream as a P.C. professor in Madison, Wis., and Jeff Daniels and Catherine O'Hara are seen all too briefly as Burt's parents who wisely check out of the movie early. Rated R. —DF
CHÉRI—In art as in life, a woman of a certain age, even a very beautiful one, begins to fade into invisibility. In Chérie, Stephen Frears (High Fidelity, The Queen) and his Dangerous Liaisons scenarist, playwright Christopher Hampton, adapt a 1920 Colette novel of the same title. Léa (the lovely 51-year-old Michelle Pfeiffer) is a grande horizontale, or courtesan, who has enjoyed the most rarified levels of society in Belle Epoque Paris. Joining a former rival, Charlotte (Kathy Bates) for lunch, she becomes reacquainted with Charlotte's son, nicknamed Chéri (Rupert Friend), a 19-year-old libertine with the delicate face of a Pre-Raphaelite painting. Léa allows herself a sunset dalliance, the glow of which melts unexpectedly into a deep amour. The delectable art nouveau costumes and production design add immeasurably to the film's pleasures. Chéri is about decadent passions, but also life's fragility—it's never too late to be blindsided by love. Rated R. —LB
DRAG ME TO HELL—Absent from horror since the early '90s, the man who birthed the Evil Dead trilogy returns to his hell-bound roots to deliver a new ode to gypsies, demonic curses and the overarching evils of the housing market crisis and avaricious bankers. Inevitably, the first suspense-laden half of the film with its shadowy demons, bile-spewing corpse and animal sacrifice wins out over the carnival-esque calamity of the second half, but Raimi injects enough levity for his errors to (mostly) be forgiven. Rated PG-13. —KJ
THE HANGOVER—Todd Phillips's Frat Pack comedies (Road Trip, Old School), have always suffered from a certain narrative patchiness, but the tight script for this tale of the aftermath of a raucous bachelor party might be his strongest film yet. It's certainly the most entertaining R-rated film of 2009 so far, with NC native Zach Galifianakis walking away with the film as socially-maladjusted Alan, whose random one-liners contain a weird combination of innocence and scariness. A great deal of the fun comes from the surprises, many of which have been revealed in the ad campaigns and trailers, so it's hard to say how well this will play up in repeat viewings. It is worth mentioning that the subject of a four-star documentary also playing in the Triangle gives his second-best performance this summer. And make sure you stick around for the credits. Rated R. —ZS
ICE AGE: DAWN OF THE DINOSAURS—The Cenozoic meets the Mesozoic in Dawn of the Dinosaurs, the third installment of the Ice Age franchise. The prehistoric heroic trio, consisting of mammoths Manny (voiced by Ray Romano) and Ellie (Queen Latifah), and saber-toothed tiger Diego (Denis Leary), embarks on a journey to save their sloth friend Sid (John Leguizamo) after an angry mama T-Rex captures him. Dawn of the Dinosaurs lacks the magic of the first Ice Age, but its story is more compelling than the inane but well-intentioned global warming-themed second installment, The Meltdown. One hopes, however, that parents won't use this film, in which dinosaurs live among Ice Age mammals, for educational purposes. Rated PG. —BD
IMAGINE THAT—In this formulaic kiddie comedy, Eddie Murphy plays Evan Danielson, a Denver financial consultant whose career is threatened by the arrival of a corporatized Native American named Whitefeather (Thomas Haden Church). That changes when Evan's daughter Olivia (Yara Shahidi) becomes a stock market soothsayer thanks to the crackerjack advice lent by her imaginary friends, accessed through an unseen portal generated by Olivia's security blanket. Rated PG. —NM
KAMBAKKHT ISHQ (Damn Love)—A sexist Hollywood stuntman (Akshay Kumar) woos a fiery supermodel/surgeon (Kareena Kapoor). Set in LA, and sporting awkward cameos by Sylvester Stallone, Brandon Routh and Denise Richards, this glitzy action comedy romance begs for a fast-forward button to skip past the pointlessly vulgar and politically incorrect. It's silly—and pretty misogynistic at times: When the hero call the heroine a bitch, well, "That's a deal breaker, ladies," as Tina Fey would say on 30 Rock. Yet, luscious Kareena is so fierce that even if the surgeon part is far-fetched, it's less cringeworthy than other recent Taming of the Shrew movies (The Proposal, My Life in Ruins) because the tamer here also needs to be tamed. Akshay with his Star Trek sideburns and hair-trigger temper seems energized by finally having a comedy co-star who gives as good as she gets. The songs are lively, and KI is occasionally laugh out loud funny. Not rated. —LB
MY SISTER'S KEEPER—Tickets for this four-hanky tearjerker should come with a week's worth of anti-depressants— let's just say I haven't seen this many grown men cry in a movie theater since the death of Spock. It is as if director Nick Cassavetes extracted the gut-wrenching emotion in the last 15 minutes of his previous weepie, The Notebook, and expanded them to feature length. An 11-year-old girl, Anna Fitzgerald (Abigail Breslin), medically engineered in vitro as a donor-child by parents who periodically harvest her genetically-matched bodily fluids and organs for the benefit of her terminal leukemia-stricken sister, Kate (Sofia Vassilieva), sues Mom (Cameron Diaz) and Dad (Jason Patric) for medical emancipation. Oh, there's also the rote confines of a courtroom melodrama, complete with a judge (Joan Cusack) whose 12-year-old daughter was killed by a drunk driver and a lawyer (Alec Baldwin) prone to epileptic seizures. Enjoy! Rated PG-13. —NM
NEW YORK—Three carefree college friends (John Abraham, Katrina Kaif and Neil Nitin Mukesh), find their lives irrevocably changed by 9/11. Sam (Abraham) is falsely accused of terrorism and remanded to Guantánamo Bay. There is an extremely intense sequence of Sam's torture, with methods familiar from news reports, and well, who remembers anything after that? Director Kabir Khan (Kabul Express) was a war correspondent in Afghanistan. He intends the film to be an indictment of the Bush administration policies that radicalized Muslims worldwide. FBI agent Roshan (Slumdog's Irrfan Khan) is on the case, stressing Islam's innate peacefulness, and that the Muslim world must take responsibility for quashing fanatical hatreds. John is excellent, and Irrfan brings a droll humor, although as usual, the American bit players are bottom of the barrel. Kabir's film is ambitious and provocative, but he has too much to say for just one movie. Not rated. —LB
THE PROPOSAL—Folksy Sitka, Alaska, warms up frosty Sandra Bullock in the second Taming of the Shrew retread appearing this month. Tyrannical Margaret (Bullock), a Canadian-born book editor, is about to be deported to the land of universal health care and blackmails her assistant, Drew (Ryan Reynolds), into marrying her for a green card. The couple returns home for his grandmother's 90th birthday. Awkward hijinks ensue. How can a movie be so predictable, yet so unbelievable at the same time? Bullock (who also takes a producer credit) tries her best to sell this tired package, to no avail: the spiraling lies, the wedding altar speechifying, the race to the airport. Again? Really? Pay no attention to the eager audiences that propelled this to No. 1 at the box office last weekend! Rated PG-13. —LB
PUBLIC ENEMIES—Following the formula of Heat, his superb 1995 crime drama, Michael Mann juxtaposes lawmen with their lawless quarry, separating them by the thinnest of moral dividing lines—indeed, the film's title eventually assumes an ambiguous air. Here, Christian Bale plays Melvin Purvis, the G-man assigned by FBI head J. Edgar Hoover (Billy Crudup) with the task of tracking and apprehending or killing John Dillinger and his cohorts. Dillinger (Johnny Depp) is cast as a violent, cunning criminal, but also a PR-conscious celebrity keenly aware of his populist appeal among the Depression-era public. Less a biopic than a glossy, stylish elegy, this film ultimately is more a tribute to Mann's own craftsmanship than it is to the doomed Dillinger—or the men who captured him. Rated R. —NM
STAR TREK—With its Gen-Y tableau and whiz-bang F/X, this isn't your father's Star Trek. And, although it is set during the formative years of the crew of the Starship Enterprise, it is not strictly a prequel. Rather, it is an alternate timeline, visited by a Romulan marauder from the future. Rated PG-13. —NM
THE TAKING OF PELHAM 1 2 3—Director Tony Scott interjects his standard-issue sensory overload into this remake of the 1974 film. Scott's false bravado masquerades as cocksure preening, with little but car crashes and actors yelling at the camera to approximate the illusion of narrative drive. The film's banality reaches its zenith when Scott rolls out the most anticlimactic ending this side of brother Ridley's American Gangster. Rated R. —NM
TRANSFORMERS 2: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN—To quote Team America: World Police, "Why does Michael Bay get to keep on making movies?" Unsurprisingly, Transformers 2 is just as bombastic as the first film. Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) and main squeeze Mikaela (Megan Fox) again find themselve in the middle of a war for universal supremacy between the Transformers. There are Mario video games that have more depth—indeed, sitting through Transformers is like watching a 150-minute-long arcade game. Rated PG-13. —NM
UP—Pixar's latest achievement will make you laugh, it'll make you cry. And, that's just within the film's first 15 minutes. There are typical animated diversions: a giant bird, talking dogs and the like, but Up is about longing: a man for his wife, a boy for his father and for an adventure that might be more up close and personal than one could imagine. Rated PG. —NM
WHATEVER WORKS—In Woody Allen's latest, Larry David plays Boris Yellnikoff, a physics genius turned chess instructor who takes in a ditsy Southern belle played by Evan Rachel Wood. David and Allen create a thoughtfully developed protagonist in Boris, one of the most fascinating characters in any of Allen's movies. Like most of Allen's later comedies this movie suffers from dialogue arrhythmia, a miscast leading lady, and a lazy repetition of ideas. But also like his later, funny films it is packed with moments of brilliance, bizarre hilarity, and a formal and aesthetic maturity. Filled with great location shooting that nudges the movie through long unfunny stretches, Whatever Works isn't the most hilarious thing you could see this summer, but it's probably the most unique, thoughtful, and self-aware comedy you'll see all year. Rated PG-13. —NG
