Second Chance 

Are We There Yet? -- It's every parent/driver's favorite question, ranking right up there with "Can we pull over? I feel sick." Ice Cube plays a would-be Romeo whose would-be girlfriend (Nia Long) is stuck working up in Vancouver, B.C. Hoping to impress Nia, Ice Cube offers to drive her kids from Portland to B.C. and as most of us Northwesterners already know, I-5 is no place to be with a carload of rowdy kids. Rated: PG

Assault on Precinct 13 -- The tension is high, as are the action and body count in this remake of the 1976 John Carpenter thriller, updated and slightly replotted, and starring Ethan Hawke as a troubled cop and Laurence Fishburne as a troubling criminal. Along with a ragtag group of cops and criminals, they must defend a police station against, well, an assault, by some very nasty, well-armed men. There are quiet moments that make the tension even more palpable, a bit of humor to diffuse it, and plenty of opportunity for viewers to go interactive, by shouting at the screen. (ES) Rated R

The Work and the Glory -- If there's one thing you can say about Spokane's church-going community, it's that they have a way of getting certain films here long before other, bigger cities get them. Case in point? The Work and the Glory, based on LDS writer Gerald Lund's popular series. In the early 1800s, the Steed family moves to still-wild upstate New York to make a new life for themselves. Once there, they find themselves embroiled in religious controversy while the two Steed brothers vie for the attentions of a wealthy merchant's daughter. Rated: PG
