Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & Wallace & amp; Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit -- The Plasticene characters jump from short films to feature length, with tinkerer Wallace still having far fewer brains than his trusty dog Gromit. But the two work nicely together, running a humane pest removal service, ridding gardens of bunnies -- until there's a visit by a large, hungry one. (ES) Rated G





Two for the Money -- Matthew McConaughey is an ace odds maker. A natural. He's riding his bike to work as some low-rent bookie when an offer comes from the upper echelons of sports gambling. It's Al Pacino with an offer he can't refuse. Question: Is it too good to be true? Rated R





The Gospel -- When an up-and-coming R & amp;B singer visits his ailing father -- a pastor -- he begins to question his values. Yolanda Adams, who co-stars, is a legend in gospel circles. Rated PG





In Her Shoes -- From the writer of Erin Brockovich and director Curtis Hanson (LA Confidential) comes a story about several generations of women rediscovering themselves and each other. Or something. Cameron Diaz is the pretty sister who tries to get Toni Collette's plain sister to put herself out there. Then something happens that forces Diaz to go live with her grandmother in a retirement home. Or something. That's not the point. The point is crying a lot and learning things about inner strength and beauty. Rated PG-13





Waiting -- Jiminy Christmas! Ryan Reynolds is funny as heck! Remember how funny he was in Two Guys and a Girl? How about Blade Trinity? Ever wanted to see him be funny in a starring role? Now you can! Waiting is about the stalled lives of restaurant wait staff and the poor tippers they serve. The restaurant is called Shenanigan's. Seriously. Rated R





Proof -- Anthony Hopkins is a genius. He's also crazy. Gwyneth Paltrow is his daughter, who is also brilliant. But is she crazy? Jake Gyllenhaal will help her figure that out by searching through her father's work for clues to his insanity, then, eventually, exploring her mouth with his tongue to look for hers. Rated PG-13





Thumbsucker -- The bizarre story of a jittery, maladjusted kid who starts taking pills. In a twist, they actually help. He becomes more popular, a better student and incredibly driven. But is changing your entire identity a good thing? Can you even call yourself the same person? These questions and others are raised. Vincent D'Onofrio, Vince Vaughan and Tilda Swinton do marvelous jobs backing up young Lou Taylor Pucci, who is excellent. Rated R

    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.
