by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Mrs. Henderson Presents -- First there was The Full Monty. Then there was Calendar Girls. Now comes Mrs. Henderson Presents. Catering to the universal obsession of watching girls get naked, it stars Dame Judi Dench, who buys a derelict theatre and wants to make it shine again by offering nude revues -- of young girls, this time. Rated R
Something New -- What happens when you've written films about rich white people dating poor black people from every conceivable angle? You switch race roles! Sanaa Lathan and Simon Baker star in this tale of a rich black chick who slums with her white gardener. Reeks of progress. Rated PG-13
When a Stranger Calls -- A remaking of the 1979 semi-classic of the same name, When a Stranger Calls is the kind of film you know about even if you haven't seen it because it has one of those great lines that quickly becomes a pop touchstone. Calling 911 about harassing phone calls, the policeman on the other end traces the call and gasps, "It's coming from inside the house." Chilling. Whether or not you can write a whole movie around a single line of dialogue remains to be seen. 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.
