April showers got you down? Stay dry inside a cozy movie theater. Here's the scoop on three flicks opening this Friday, April 27.
The Five-Year Engagement
This romantic comedy picks up where most end: the boy (Jason Segel) has asked the girl (Emily Blunt) to marry him and she’s said yes! Unfortunately, the actual wedding is taking a lot longer to plan than either of them ever anticipated.
Sexy: Adorable chemistry between Segel and Blunt
Not sexy: Meddling in-laws
Verdict: This looks way too hilarious and cute to pass up, so make it a girls' night out with your besties.
The Pirates! Band of Misfits
In this animated comedy, Hugh Grant takes on his first cartoon role as Pirate Captain — an enthusiastic, not-so-scary menace of the high seas with just one dream: to beat out his rivals, Black Bellamy (Jeremy Piven) and Cutlass Liz (Salma Hayek), for the coveted Pirate of the Year Award.
Sexy: Hugh Grant... in real life
Not sexy: Cartoon pirates
Verdict: You'll enjoy this one as much as the kids!
When a serial murderer starts recreating scenes from the horror stories of Edgar Allan Poe, the author himself (John Cusack) teams up with a young detective (Luke Evans) to find the demented culprit. The game gets especially dangerous when Poe's lady love (Alice Eve) becomes the next target.
Sexy: Luke Evans and John Cusack (rent Say Anything!)
Not sexy: Twisted psychopaths
Verdict: The critics aren't impressed, but the trailers look awesome. We say round up your friends and judge this thriller for yourself!
