Opening Films

Shrek 2 -- The story picks up right where the first one left off, with a little extra twist: Prince Charming arrives to rescue Princess Fiona, but it's too late; she's on her honeymoon with Shrek. And Charming's mom -- the Fairy Godmother -- is not happy about it. A visit by Fiona and Shrek to her parents' kingdom leads to marital strife and misadventures with magic potions, as well as introductions to new characters -- Puss in Boots is an expert swordsman, but when a hairball strikes, he's weak as a kitten. Lots of goofy product placement, and a skewering of many fairy tales. This may not be as fresh as the original, but it's just as hip and funny, and the advances in computer technology are mind-blowing. (ES) Rated PG





Stateside -- Each generation must have its Officer and a Gentleman, and for this generation of potentially draft-aged youngsters, it's Stateside. Jonathan Tucker plays a callous, unpopular rich kid who gets in trouble with the law and is strongly encouraged by the judge to join the Marines. He does so, just in time to fall in love with a mentally unstable hottie (Rachael Leigh Cook). Val Kilmer plays a mean old drill sergeant. Rated: R
