With May finally here, summer's right around the corner! Celebrate with a night out at the movies — maybe even at the drive-in! Here's the scoop on three flicks opening this Friday, May 4.
When a massive villain emerges, one superhero just isn't going to cut it. Nick Fury, the director of the peacekeeping agency known as S.H.I.E.L.D., decides to assemble a band of superheroes to fight together — Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Captain America (Chris Evans), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner), and Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson). Bad guys, beware!
Sexy: Hotties in spandex
Not sexy: Half the audience
Verdict: You know your man is dying to see this, and Chris Hemsworth and Robert Downey Jr. will make it well worth your time. Plus, the critics are loving it. Have an adventurous date night!
A Little Bit of Heaven
This romantic "comedy" is about a young girl (Kate Hudson) who finds out she has cancer and then proceeds to fall in love with her doctor (Gael García Bernal). Sounds hilarious. Lucy Punch, Kathy Bates, and Whoopi Goldberg also star.
Sexy: Gael García Bernal
Not sexy: Cancer
Verdict: Wow, the critics are having a field day bashing this rom-com — if you insist on a funny flick about terrible illnesses, we recommend renting 50/50 instead.
Miley Cyrus stars as Lola, Lol for short, a high-school girl navigating the ups and downs of young love, her social network statuses, and her relationship with her overprotective, divorced mother (Demi Moore). Could her rocker best friend (Douglas Booth) be The One?
Sexy: Teen love
Not sexy: Teen boys acting stupid
Verdict: We may be getting too old for this genre, but if it proves to be as popular as the 2008 French version it’s based on, it’ll be a major hit.
Watch the trailer.
