Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff



Love Don't Cost a Thing -- If you were young in the '80s, you probably already know where this one is headed. Engaging dork hires cute cheerleader to be his highly visible girlfriend in a desperate bid for popularity. This is a remake, set in a mostly African-American high school, of Can't Buy Me Love (1987). Rated: PG-13





*** Stuck On You -- The Farrelly brothers offer up another goofball comedy with a heart of gold in this story of conjoined brothers (Matt Damon and Greg Kinnear) who head to Hollywood when one of them wants to become an actor. The slapstick is front and center from frame one, and though it's funny all the way through, the film loses some steam in the latter parts. Meryl Streep has a couple of cameos, Cher has a big extended one, both playing themselves. A very upbeat look at physical disability. (E.S.) Rated PG-13





*** Something's Gotta Give -- An old-fashioned comedy starring Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton that takes a few cues from Woody Allen and Nora Ephron. Nicholson's rogue Harry likes a younger woman (Amanda Peet), a younger man (Keanu Reeves) swoons over Keaton's tired-of-love Erica, and all the audience can do is root for the two pairs to get sorted out. It's fresh and breezy and funny, and features comedic nude scenes from both leads, as well as some sweet bits of romance. An entertaining adult date film. (E.S.) Rated PG-13





**** The Two Towers -- You'll have four days to refresh your memory before AMC's sold-out-two-months-ago full-day Lord of the Rings marathon, followed by the opening of The Return of the King at 12:01 am Wednesday. Here's what we had to say when The Two Towers opened last December: "This magnificent sequel to last year's magnificent original welcomes back most of the same characters (including a new, improved version of Gandalf), and features many new ones, with the CGI creation of the hideous, piteous and chilling Gollum standing out. This one is darker and more violent than the first, with a more intense and epic approach to the battle scenes. As Frodo and his pals continue on their mission, the perils multiply and the characters get more complicated. This is everything fans were waiting for." (ES) Rated PG-13
