Opening Films 

by INLANDER STAFF & r & & r & GHOST TOWN & r & & r & Ricky Gervais, all smiles and snarkiness, steals the show as a misanthropic dentist who dies, quickly comes back to life, and finds that he can converse with all of the ghosts in Manhattan, each of whom wants a favor from him. Greg Kinnear plays a slick womanizer who's killed in the opening moments; Tea Leoni is the wife he was cheating on who tries for a new start, only to meet up with the nasty dentist. Plenty of funny stuff is accompanied by too many loose ends, but you'll come out feeling good. (ES) Rated PG-13





IGOR


John Cusack plays an Igor. That's right, an Igor. In Malaria, a land of evil geniuses, there's one Igor for every mad scientist. All they're trained to do is pull the switch on whatever nefarious scheme their boss cooks up. Cusack's Igor, though, doesn't want to just be another Igor. He's got, like, aspirations. (LB) Rated PG





LAKEVIEW TERRACE


Samuel L. Jackson is a middle-class black man (and a cop) who likes to welcome his new middle-class white neighbors to the cul-de-sac by preying on their fear of lower-class black men. Patrick Wilson gets that treatment first hand. When the new neighbor doesn't kowtow to Jackson's alpha-male, leader-of-the-block mentality, things get a little dangerous for him. (LB) Rated PG-13





MY BEST FRIEND'S GIRL


Jason Biggs (he's still alive!) rushes things with Kate Hudson -- tells her he loves her and, when that scares her, asks if they can move in together, then she dumps him. So he asks his BFF Dane Cook, who happens to get paid to be a jerk to women so they'll go back to their boyfriends (how's that for taking the long view when selecting BFFs?), to be a jerk. Trouble is, Dane and Kate soon find themselves falling in a crazy little thing called love. (LB) 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.
