10 reasons to go to the movies this weekend
1. ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’
Chris Evans puts his very square jaw to use as the Marvel Comics hero.
2. ‘Friends With Benefits’
Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis attempt to make work what absolutely no one else in the history of predictable rom-coms has been able to. At least they’ll look hot doing it.
3. ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2’
You may have heard about this little sleeper hit. The final installment of the franchise pits Potter against his lifelong nemesis, the creepily noseless Lord Voldemort.
4. ‘Winnie the Pooh’
No 3-D, no computer animation, just a purely delightful little film set in the Hundred Acre Wood.
5. ‘Horrible Bosses’
No one likes working for a man eater, a psychopath or a jerk — but very few of us would actually embark on eliminating said boss. Jason Sudeikis, Charlie Day and Jason Bateman star as three hardworking men who attempt to do just that.
Fans of Kevin James will likely enjoy his romp around a Boston zoo where talking animals give him dating advice.
7. ‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’
Michael Bay has paid for the sins of the last “Transformers” film with this straightened-out sequel, which features fight scenes where you can actually see what’s going on.
8. ‘Larry Crowne’
It’s nice to see Tom Hanks do something funny after so many dour (and questionably successful) films. As Crowne, he’s a down-on-his-luck good guy trying to rebuild his life by going to community college.
9. ‘Monte Carlo’
Leighton Meester, Katie Cassidy and Selena Gomez star in this tweenified story of three girls traveling in Paris who are whisked away to Monte Carlo when one of them is mistaken for a British heiress.
10. ‘Cars 2’
Owen Wilson and Larry the Cable Guy return to give voice to Lightning McQueen and Mater as they head to the World Grand Prix race. metro
