Charlotte's Web - PG
As family features go, CHARLOTTE'S WEB may be the best we have seen in a while. Technically adept and surprisingly affecting, the movie translates E.B. White's children's book into a motion picture that will enthrall children and engage their parents. The animals come to life with enough credibility that it's not out of the question that a few tears may be shed for a CGI creature. It tells the story of Wilbur the pig, which is scared of the end of the season. He knows that come that time, he will end up on the dinner table. He hatches a plan with Charlotte, a spider that lives in his pen, to ensure that this will never happen. Starring Dakota Fanning and featuring the voices of Julia Roberts (as Charlotte), Dominic Scott Kay (as Wilbur), Steve Buscemi, Oprah Winfrey, Kathy Bates, Robert Redford, Thomas Haden Church, among others.
School For Scoundrels - PG
NAPOLEON DYNAMITE's Jon Heder plays Roger, a beleaguered New York City meter maid who is plagued by anxiety and low self-esteem. In order to overcome his feelings of inadequacy, Roger enrolls in a top- secret confidence-building class taught by the suavely underhanded Dr. P (Billy Bob Thornton). Aided by his assistant, Lesher (Michael Clarke Duncan), Dr. P uses unorthodox, often dangerous methods, but he guarantees results: Employ his techniques and you will unleash your inner lion. Surrounded by a band of misfit classmates, Roger's confidence grows and he makes his way to the head of the class, even finding the courage to ask out his longtime crush, Amanda (Jacinda Barrett). But Roger quickly discovers that star students have a way of catapulting Dr. P's competitive side into high gear. Soon enough, the teacher sets out to infiltrate and destroy Roger's personal and professional life.
