Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & Must Love Dogs -- Despite a winning performance by John Cusack and an OK one by Diane Lane as unhappy recent divorcees who meet via the Internet, the film is too much of a rehash of other romantic comedies (especially of the Meg Ryan variety). There are some original laugh-inducing scenes, but there are just as many that feel tired. And if you don't know how this one is going to end by the 10-minute mark, you haven't seen enough Meg Ryan films. (ES) Rated PG-13





Sky High -- Will Stronghold is a powerless kid with superhero parents (Captain Stronghold and Jetstream), attending a school for kids with extraordinary superpowers. So how's he to manage the embarrassment of being a mere sidekick while negotiating all the problems normal kids go through (girls, parents, peer pressure)? Will he find his superpowers? Does anyone really care? Rated PG





Stealth -- Jessica Biel is still a looker, but in Stealth she gets serious. Real serious. She's tough, playing a Navy pilot alongside Jamie Foxx and Josh Lucas. They're a team, and when their commander announces the arrival of computer-driven planes, they're all ... not for it. Let's just say El Chief-o should have listened to the three kids. That little humdinger of a plane up and disobeys orders, and next thing you know, there's a national security threat issued. Not good. Rated PG-13





The Wild Parrots of Telegraph Hill -- Born and raised in southwestern Washington, Marc Bittner tried to be a novelist in Europe but ended up instead -- for 14 years -- as a homeless street musician in San Francisco. Judy Irving's acclaimed documentary traces how he fell in with a bunch of red and green parrots with names like Tupelo, Mingus, Picasso and Pushkin. Turns out there are a lot of frustrated novice bird owners who just let go of their screaming, biting pets -- and that parrots survive in urban areas as structured flocks just fine, thank you. (MB) Rated G, at the Met, Aug. 1-4 and Aug. 6-7.

    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.
