Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & BABY MAMA & r & & r & Busy career woman Kate (Tina Fey) decides that, husband or not, it's time to have a baby. When a doctor tells her that her uterus isn't up to snuff, she goes the surrogate-mom route, but chooses white trash Angie (Amy Poehler) to do the job. The film starts off with good comic situations, but Poehler overdoes the cutesy/stupid business, Fey's character isn't nearly as smart as she's supposed to be, and, pardon me, but I believe the film's message is that it's OK to have unprotected sex with a total stranger. Embarrassingly bad stuff. (ES) Rated PG-13





CJ7


From the absurdist who brought the world Shaolin Soccer comes a daffy story about a poor dad who can't buy his son the toy he wants so he goes looking for something special in a landfill known to be frequented by UFOs. Slapstick ensues. (LB) Rated PG





DECEPTION


Nerdy Ewan McGregor gets hooked into a sex club full of successful professionals by the charming, roguish Hugh Jackman. Stuff goes wrong, obviously, and it seems the sex club was an elaborate ruse to trap McGregor in a game of intrigue that will eventually lead to his being scapegoated for something or other. Problem for Jackman is that the nerdy McGregor solves problems for a living, and people screwing with his life has become problem No. 1. (LB) Rated R





HAROLD AND KUMAR ESCAPE FROM GUANTANAMO BAY


"Flight 420 to Amsterdam, now boarding." Everyone's favorite minority slackers return. Aboard a flight to weed central, an old white woman mistakes Kumar for a terrorist. The two are arrested, pegged as a Jihadist on the one hand and a North Korean communist on the other -- enemies of America in any case -- and must fly to freedom with the help of Doogie Howser. (LB) 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.
