Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff
Daddy Day Care -- Eddie Murphy plays Charlie, an ad exec who loses his job when his cereal campaign flops. Stuck at home with the kid -- is this plot starting to sound like a certain 1983 Michael Keaton film? -- Charlie teams up with his buddy Phil (Jeff Garlin) to open a daycare. No day care license? No experience? No food card? No problem. Rated: PG





Laurel Canyon -- A sort of "Greenwich Village of the West," Laurel Canyon is an avenue of bohemia in the Hollywood Hills. Frances McDormand is a record producer whose much younger lover (Alessandro Nivola) is crashing at her house while she tries to help his band come up with a hit. Meanwhile, her son Sam (Christian Bale) and his fiance Alex (Kate Beckinsale), both recent Harvard med school grads, are moving to L.A. and plan to stay with her, too. Rated: R. Playing at the Met on Friday, May 9, at 3 pm and Monday, May 12, at 5:30 and 8 pm.





**** A Mighty Wind -- Christopher Guest and pals leave the dogs from Best in Show behind but bring along the entire cast for an alternately wry, satiric and hilarious take on the folk revival of the '60s, when duos, trios and mobs of singers were the stars of hootenannies. This sweet and funny mockumentary gives us those "great groups" Mitch & amp; Mickey, the Folksmen, and the New Main Street Singers, who reunite for a live memorial concert, and lots of things, like in A Hard Day's Night, go wrong. Great acting, singing and playing. The lyrics are sublime. (ES) Rated PG-13

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
