Opening this Weekend (2/8 - 2/10)

"MY GOD.  Kelis' milkshake DOES bring all the boys to yard."
Opening - Side Effects, Identity Thief

Googan suggestion for the weekend - Destroy a child's snowman.

Side Effects
Rich white people drug addictions are, like, sooooooo boring
Synopsis - "A woman turns to prescription medication as a way of handling her anxiety concerning her husband's upcoming release from prison."

Metacritic Score - 74

Thoughts - So I guess this is the first good movie of the year?  That's cool.  But it doesn't appear to have a serial killer in it, and I require all of my psychological thrillers to have serial killers, so yeah... not much interest on this front.  It's also, apparently, Steven Soderbergh's final film before retirement, so for you twelve Soderbergh die hards out there, don't disappoint.

Identity Thief
According to the post neo-classical theory of character study, their shirts illustrate the types of characters they portray *wafts fart, sips brandy*
Synopsis - "When a mild-mannered businessman learns his identity has been stolen, he hits the road in an attempt to foil the thief, a deceptively harmless-looking woman."

Metacritic Score - 37

Thoughts - Jason Bateman, what's your deal, bro?  You're a funny dude.  But you keep making really, really not funny movies.  Why so lousy with the script choices?  I mean hey, I get it, we all have a coke a habit to fund, I'm with you on that, but does that mean you have to completely sabotage your career in the process?  I'm just saying dude.  Arrested Development royalties can only get you so far.
