Bend It Like Beckhorn

A heartfelt and funny film that celebrates the power of athletics to change lives - especially the life of an Indian girl teenager in England whose love of soccer runs counter to her parents traditional values. I enjoyed this movie a lot. It reminds me of The Big Fat Greek Wedding - I would encourage seeing it.

Finding Nemo

A little lost clown fish and his dad have many adventures while trying to unite in this under water-animated children's movie. It was charming. Kids will love it.

Johnny English

Rowan Atkinson of "Mr. Bean" fame plays a bungling secret agent, Johnny English, in this silly romp about protecting England from an evil Frenchman played by John Malkovich. This movie keeps you laughing almost continuously - although sometimes it seems jerky. Bean" grows on you after awhile.

Lara Croft, The Cradle of Life

The action heroine travels all over the globe in search of Pandora's Box in this sequel to Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Just when you think she has found love in her life something else happens. She is so active it is unbelievable. She is a very beautiful, natural looking girl - Angelina Jolie. The scenes from other countries are breathtaking.

A must-see movie! This is a Gary Roth film about the 1930's racehorse and three men who went along for the ride. There's something cherry about a movie that just tries to make you feel good. It also includes scenes from the Depression and shows how hard some folks had it - yet they survived! You come away from the movie feeling really good. What else can I say about it - it's a wonderful movie.

140 min.
Rated PG13
