Brown Sugar Taye Diggs is so fine. Sanaa Lathan is also fine. This movie is nowhere near fine. At Showcase: 1:55, 4:35, 7:35, 9:55, 12:15 (Fri. and Sat.) 3 stars

Formula 51 The last cool thing Sam Jack did was his cameo at the end of “Out of Sight.” Since then his career has been given the shaft, so to speak. At Showcase: 1:05, 3:20, 5:30, 7:45, 10:00, 10:30, 12:05 (Fri. and Sat.), 12:35 (Fri. and Sat.) 3 stars

Jonah: A Veggie Tales Movie Biblical vegetables have never been so entertaining. Whoever made this is on serious drugs. At Showcase: 12:35, 2:25, 4:15, 6:15

Mostly Martha If you remember Martha from “A League of their Own” and hoped this movie was “mostly” about her then you are just as pathetic as me. At Madstone: 1:00, 3:05, 5:05, 7:15, 9:25

My Big Fat Greek Wedding Biggest moneymaking independent film of all time and counting. Unlike “Blair Witch” there will be no copycats, like “My Big Fat Jewish Wedding.” At Madstone: 1:10, 3:10, 5:10, 7:10, 9:10 At Showcase: 12:40, 2:40, 4:45, 6:45, 8:45, 11:00 (Fri. and Sat.) 3 stars

Sex with Strangers I auditioned for this documentary but apparently I didn’t have the “right physique” that they were looking for. Ripped and bulging just wasn’t their cup of tea I guess. Stop laughing. At Madstone: 1:45, 3:45, 5:45, 7:45, 9:45 0 stars

Sweet Home Alabama I really just want to go home right now. Why couldn’t Reese Witherspoon do something un-angelic so I could make fun of her and go on to the next flick. Come on, Reese, be a bitch! At Showcase: 12:30, 2:45, 5:00, 7:15, 9:30, 11:45 (Fri. and Sat.) At Madstone: 1:20, 3:20, 5:20, 7:20, 9:20 3 stars

White Oleander Wouldn’t it be sad if the filmmakers accidentally used real oleander and Michelle drank it and died. Yeah, that would be sad. I mean for David E. Kelley, I wouldn’t give a shit. At Showcase: 8:00, 10:15 1 star
