April 22nd Film Releases

Happy early birthday Ms. Jen!! There is absolutely nothing opening this weekend that I suggest you see, but I still say you try to catch Millions before it heads to video. Hit up Serious Dave for a pass, grab an Icee and sneak in a bag of Puffins. Enjoy your weekend Missy!

1) The Game of Their Lives
2) The Interpreter
3) Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room

A Lot Like Love
It actually should be named - A Lot Like When Harry Met Sally Only With Amanda Peet and Ashton "Media Saturated" Kutcher and Bad.

The Interpreter
An interpreter of an obscure African language overhears a plot to assassinate a dignitary and becomes both a target and a suspect herself.
Sydney Pollack is at his best directing intellectual suspense and with Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman costarring it's bound to be a solid movie.

Kings Ransom
A guy has himself kidnapped to avoid alimony payments and no one really misses him. To tell the truth, I'll be missing this entire film.
(Watch it become #1 at the box office, you people do that just to piss me off.)

The Game of Their Lives
You know those great movies you never hear about until there's a small stack of them on the shelf at Blockbuster and you wonder why this never got any publicity? This is one of those movies.
It has all the right elements to make it a terrific movie. It's based on a true story about an underdog team that overcame tremendous odds to win it all. Yes, it's about the World Cup Soccer tournament in the 1950's, but that doesn't mean it's bad.
To top it all off that loner hottie from American Beauty (Wes Bentley) stars and he didn't bring his video camera. Yum.

A movie about a dying town that needs to win a boat race in order to lift its spirits.
Here's my business analysis - Take the money you used for the boat, hire a consultant to suggest ways to attract new industries capable of revitalizing the town in a sustainable manner and lose the creepy kid actor who played Anakin in Star Wars I.

Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room
I'm just a curious as anyone else. A movie about the rise and fall of Enron. I want to know what happened and if the clips on iFilm are any indication, the events are jaw dropping.
