Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff
Looney Tunes: Back in Action -- It can go either way when you mix animation with live action. Either you can get something as inventive and fun as Who Framed Roger Rabbit? Or you can wind up with... Space Jam. Tired of playing the Rhoda to Bugs Bunny's Mary, Daffy Duck teams up with disgruntled ex-stuntman Brendan Fraser and leaves Hollywood forever. Well, not if Bugs and studio exec Jenna Elfman have anything to do with it. Directed by Joe Dante (Gremlins). Rated: PG





Mambo Italiano -- Angelo (Luke Kirby) is handsome, talented, has a great job and is (gasp) gay! Meanwhile, his traditional Italian parents (Paul Sorvino, Ginette Reno) want him to settle down with a nice girl (of their choosing, of course). When Angelo moves in with his boyfriend Nino, the cioppino hits the fan and My Big Fat Greek Wedding-type hijinks ensue. Rated: R. Playing at the Met Cinema Nov. 16, 17 and 19





**** Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World -- The man of the title is Captain "Lucky" Jack Aubrey, whose ship, the Surprise, is attacked off the coast of Brazil at the time of the Napoleonic Wars. The decision to go after the bigger, faster bad guys leads to a gigantic adventure story, with stunning photography and effects (a storm at sea is terrifying); smart, emotional tempered performances from Crowe and Paul Bettany as the ship's doctor; and some great storytelling twists. Based on two of the series of books by Patrick O'Brian. (ES) Rated: PG-13





*** Santa vs. the Snowman -- Steve Oedekerk, the twisted mind behind Nickelodeon's Jimmy Neutron, has revitalized the Christmas special with just the right mix of the familiar and the original. When the Snowman covets Santa's beloved status, the future of Christmas is at stake. Armies of elves and tiny snowmen can't settle things, so it's up to a little girl to show everyone the real meaning of Christmas. This is a half-hour filled with lots of laughs; the big battle scene alone is worth the price of admission. Not Rated. Only at Imax. (TM)

    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.
