Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


Charly -- Not to be confused with the 1968 Cliff Robertson film based on Flowers for Algernon, this Charly is about a principled young Mormon whose world is turned upside down when a free spirit from big, bad Manhattan moves to Salt Lake City and into his life. Rated: PG





Deliver Us From Eva -- Writer-director Gary Hardwick's follow-up to The Brothers is an intermittently charming romantic comedy starring "playa" LL Cool J and angry-young-thing Gabrielle Union as two randy mismatched buppies. A nice variation on Taming of the Shrew. (RP) Rated: R





El Crimen del Padre Amaro -- An enormous hit in Mexico for its subject matter about power, corruption and the Catholic church, The Crime of Father Amaro, for all its genuinely thoughtful qualities, seems to have become a breakout U.S. hit for starring Gael Garcia Bernal, the liquid-eyed handsome young star of Y Tu Mama Tambien. It doesn't hurt that the soul-searching onscreen involves a certain amount of forbidden groping. At The Met Feb. 12-13 at 5:30 pm & amp; 8 pm; Feb. 14 at 3 pm. (RP) Rated: R





How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days -- Golden-haired twinklers Kate Hudson and Matthew McConaughey square off in supposed urban-sophisticate high-concept Cosmo magazine-style romantic comedy about the rules of dating and the unpredictably of love and heartbreak. A chick flick that wants to be a date flick, but a comedy that wastes the charm of the dynamic duo, as well as Bebe Neuwirth and Adam Goldberg. (RP) Rated: PG-13





Rabbit Proof Fence -- A magnificently made, moving story of a trio of Aboriginal girls who escape a government camp in 1930s Australia. Everything clicks, from director Philip Noyce's pacing, to Chris Doyle's blue-and-brown palette of light, to Peter Gabriel's score. (RP) Rated: PG-13





Shanghai Knights -- One of the odder movie-buddy pairings returns in this sequel to Shanghai Noon, with Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson again finding themselves together -- this time in jolly old 19th-century England, where Chan's Chon is searching for the killer of his father. The inventive slapstick fight scenes are almost nonstop, except for a couple of vicious segments that prove how bad the bad guys are. Chan plays the voice of reason; Wilson plays the voice that never shuts up. Much goofy fun ensues. (ES) Rated: PG-13





& lt;i & Capsule reviews are written by Ed Symkus (ES) and Ray Pride (RP), unless otherwise noted. & lt;/i &

The world could always use another cautionary tale about bachelor parties. This time it's Jason Lee as the groom-to-be, who has just woken up next to Julia Stiles (incidentally, not his intended). Rated: PG-13
