THE HEARTBREAK KID


Ben Stiller suffers at the hands of a series of hollow, one-dimensional harpies in the Farrelly Brothers' remake of Neil Simon's 1972 original. The old one hit No. 91 on AFI's list of the funniest movies ever made. This version -- with its fetish for nasal penetration and a dark, sunburned shade of misogyny -- misses the mark. (MJ) Rated R.





THE HUNTING PARTY


An international correspondent (Richard Gere) and his cameraman (Terrence Howard) go off in search of a Bosnian general wanted for countless war crimes. (LB) Rated R





THE KING OF KONG


"No matter what I say, it draws controversy. It's sorta like the abortion issue." That's Billy Mitchell. He's the world's greatest King Kong player, with a top score thought to be unbeatable. That was, until Steve Weibe, a depressed middle school teacher from Seattle, shattered Mitchell's mark. This documentary chronicles the ensuing videogame feud. (LB) Rated PG-13.





SEA MONSTERS


The trailer for this IMAX film shows a whole lot of boring scientists in deserts brushing dirt away from huge skeletons. Promos promise they'll also indulge us with some spectacular deep-sea, 3-D, CG behemoths, though, including "Dolly," a playful dolichorhynchops. (JS)





THE SEEKER


The holiday season is approaching, so you know what time it is: children's fantasy time! Though cloaked in clich & eacute;s -- the hero is an outcast, but discovers he has unbelievable powers and a noble destiny -- The Seeker looks considerably more sinister. (LB) Rated PG





WHAT A WAY TO GO


This feature-length documentary, written and directed by Tim Bennett, focuses on environmental concerns and revealing information about global warming and species-extinction through numerous interviews. Bennett expresses the role that the American lifestyle plays in global warming and the solution to the wave of ignorance. Magic Lantern, Monday, Oct. 8, at 7 pm (AEM) Not Rated
