Your WEEKEND Pic (Aug 11 - 13)
(A guide to help you plan your cinema-going)
1. CLICK (Fantasy comedy with Adam Sandler, Kate Beckinsale and Christopher Walken) Rated: * * * (out of 4): Sandler gets more than he had bargained for when is given a ‘universal remote control’ that can freeze and fast forward time, and even erases unpleasant events.
2. A MOMENT TO REMEMBER (Korean tear-jerker with Woo-sung Jung, Ye-jin Son and, Jong-hak Baek) Rated * * * (3 hankies): They meet when she is on the rebound but just when everything is going well, she is diagnosed with a brain disease that threatens to wipe out her memory.
3. DRAGON TIGER GATE (Cantonese kungfu actioner with Donnie Yen, Nicholas Tse and Shawn Yue) Rated * * ½ (2.5 stars): If it is stylish kungfu you want, this should fit the bill as its plot is just a hastily-concocted peg for all the action choreographed by Yen.
4. GARFIELD: A TAIL OF 2 KITTIES (Comedy with Brekin Meyer, Jennifer Love Hewitt and Bill Murray as voice of Garfield) Rated * * (2 stars): Based on the Prince and the ‘Pawper’ story, this sequel has Garfield being mistaken for a ‘royalty’ lookalike when he sneaks off to London with Jon. Juvenile and sometimes 'pawthetic' comedy.
5. THE BREAK-UP (anti-romantic comedy with Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn) Rated: * * (2 stars): If you get a kick out of seeing a couple squabble, or getting a glimpse of Aniston’s butt, then you may find this effort worthwhile. If not, give yourself a break.
