Films opening

Hidalgo Viggo’s risen to the throne and in the process
developed some great horsemanship skills. Now he’s so popular
that audiences are eager to stare at him riding around on a pony
for two hours. Money well spent indeed. At Showcase: 12:45, 1:15,
3:45, 4:15, 6:45, 7:15, 9:35, 10:05, 12:20 (Fri. and Sat.).

Films holding

Barbershop 2: Back in Business You’d think that Cube
wouldn’t ruin a potentially great series by allowing Queen
Latifah to make a worthless, ripoff sequel. At Showcase: 12:55,
3:15, 5:35, 8:00, 10:20, 12:35 (Fri. and Sat.).

 

Big Fish Tim Burton has deserved this type of grand recognition
for so very long. He probably would have received it, too, for his
work on the “Batman” series if that weasel Schumacher
hadn’t rained on his parade. At Showcase: 9:55, 12:30. At
Madstone: 1:05, 4:30, 7:10, 9:45. At Madstone: 9:45.

 

The Butterfly Effect It seems as though ruining the lives of
Bruce Willis’s children just wasn’t enough damage to
satisfy lil’ Ashton; he had to ruin a potentially awesome
thriller as well. At Showcase: 1:20, 9:50, 12:15 (Fri. and
Sat.).

 

Club Dread It’s becoming pretty clear that one bout with
the goofy Broken Lizard crew was all that viewers could handle. It
looks like they’ll have to replace their goonish comedy with
something a trifle better. At Showcase: 1:10, 3:25, 5:40, 7:55,
10:15, 12:30 (Fri. and Sat.). At Madstone: 1:05, 3:15, 5:25, 7:35,
9:45.

 

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen It’s very comforting
to know that major studios are investing millions of dollars in
movies about turf wars between belligerent high school drama
queens. At Showcase: 12:35, 2:45, 4:55, 7:05, 9:15, 11:30.

 

Dirty Dancing: Havana Nights Actor Diego Luna’s name is
probably the coolest and most enjoyable thing to emerge from this
wholly worthless Havana hoedown. At Showcase: 12:25, 2:25, 4:40,
6:55, 9:10, 11:20.

 

Eurotrip It’s not like college audiences are foolish
enough to run en masse to a remaking of “Road Trip” on
the European continent. Yeah, right. At Showcase: 1:25, 3:35, 5:45,
8:10, 10:25, 12:40 (Fri. and Sat.).

 

Girl with a Pearl Earring Scarlett Johansson is nice to look at.
At Madstone: 3:45, 5:45, 7:45.

 

Miracle Feeding men Styx or Journey and hard-hitting hockey is
like giving a dog the perpetually desirable bone. At Showcase:
12:55, 3:40, 6:35, 9:20, 9:50, 12:05 (Fri. and Sat.).

 

Monster Charlize Theron plays quite the dirty sleaze with thirty
pounds of extra cargo packed on. At Showcase: 2:55, 9:55, 12:10
(Fri. and Sat.).

 

My Architect: A Son’s Journey It takes skill to balance at
once some of the world’s grandest architectural designs and
two illegitimate families. At Madstone: 1:10, 3:45, 7:10, 9:20.

 

The Passion of the Christ Mel Gibson’s career-concluding,
gorily honest masterpiece has finally hit the shelves. And it looks
as though it’s doing pretty well financially. At Showcase:
Noon, 12:30, 1:00, 1:30, 3:00, 3:30, 4:00, 4:30, 6:00, 6:30, 7:00,
7:30, 9:00, 9:30, 10:00. At Madstone: 1:00, 2:00, 4:00, 5:00, 7:00,
8:00, 9:45.

 

Starsky and Hutch After the crippling failures of “The Big
Bounce” and “Along Came Polly,” Owen Wilson and
Ben Stiller better have some tricks up their sleeves. At Showcase:
12:20, 2:50, 2:40, 3:10, 5:00, 5:30, 7:20, 7:50, 9:40, 10:10,
11:55, 12:25 (Fri. and Sat.).

 

Twisted The potentially lowest-ever fresh rating of 2 percent on
rottentomates.com ought to usher in great success for this crime
thriller. At Showcase: 12:25, 2:50, 5:10, 7:25, 9:45, 11:50.
