  • 17 Again (PG-13)

    Watchable but limited youth-market comedy makes predictable feel-good use of the story of a 37-year-old loser named Mike (Matthew Perry) who wakes up one day in his seventeen-year-old body (played by teen idol Zac Efron), and goes back to high school in 2009 as “Mark.” Efron’s adolescent female fans may be perplexed by the scenes in which Mark/Mike fends off the sexual advances of his own daughter (Michelle Trachtenberg) and then puts the moves on his “wife” (Leslie Mann). more...

  • 42 (PG-13)

    Actor Chadwick Boseman (portraying color-line-breaking baseball player Jackie Robinson) hits a figurative triple, then comes in to score when Harrison Ford smacks a two-run homer in the folksy, cornpone role of crusading Brooklyn Dodgers owner Branch Rickey, who hired the “negro” infielder because he thought it was time to open up the sport — and the country — to the idea of blacks and whites on the same playing field. more...
