You've worked hard all week — treat yourself to a relaxing evening at the movies this weekend, complete with butter-drenched popcorn. Here's the scoop on three flicks showing this Friday, June 15.
Rock of Ages
The Broadway stage musical hits big screens in this highly anticipated ode to the ‘80s directed by Adam Shankman of So You Think You Can Dance fame. Small-town girl Sherrie (Julianne Hough) meets city boy Drew (Diego Boneta), and the pair fall in love to the tunes of Def Leppard, Poison, Whitesnake, and other hair-band favorites. Also starring: Alec Baldwin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Russell Brand, and Tom Cruise as the infamous Axl Rose-like Stacee Jaxx.
Sexy: Diego Boneta (remember him on Pretty Little Liars?)
Not sexy: Egotistical rock stars
Verdict: Duh, this is a total must-see with your besties — get ready for a sing-along-thon!
When a couple's marriage is almost destroyed after their son is kidnapped and killed, the pair come back together to avenge their little boy. The system may have failed, letting the murderer off way too easy, but Mom (Erika Christensen of Parenthood) and Dad (Jesse Metcalfe of Desperate Housewives) make up for it big time when they seize the culprit and torture him mercilessly.
Sexy: Jesse Metcalfe
Not sexy: Child killers and torture
Verdict: Definitely not for the squeamish, but right up your alley if you loved the Saw franchise. Sicko.
Watch the trailer.
That's My Boy
When little Donny knocks up his middle-school teacher and she ends up behind bars (yes, you read that right), he raises his son, Todd, the best way he knows how — by feeding him lollipops and getting him a full-back tattoo of the New Kids on the Block. Todd moves out at 18, but after years apart, older Donny (Adam Sandler) finds his long-lost boy (Andy Samberg) and shows up to rock his world... and crash his wedding. Leighton Meester of Gossip Girl also stars.
Sexy: Innocent crushes on your teacher
Not sexy: Teachers taking advantage of said crushes
Verdict: Let's be real here: Sandler's been a bit off his game recently... surely, he's due for a hit? Anyway, it can't be worse than Jack and Jill — and it's perfect timing for Father's Day.
