Hey everyone. Sorry I am so late today with my article but I was a busy bee! There's some good movies that came out this week! Here's the highlighted movies!

 

Death at a Funeral

Put-upon Aaron (Chris Rock) is always plagued by drama and dysfunction, but he encounters more than he can handle while attempting to plan his father's funeral. What's a family gathering without jealousy, tension and blackmail? Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Danny Glover, James Marsden, Luke Wilson, Zoe Saldana, Regina Hall and Columbus Short round out a stellar ensemble cast.

Starring: Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence
Director: Neil LaBute

I found parts of this movie funny but overall I was disappointed. Not sure why they had to remake the British comedy to begin with.

 

Date Night

Who knew simple dinner reservations under a different name could turn one New Jersey couple's date night so terribly upside-down? Claire (Tina Fey) and Phil (Steve Carell) Foster leave their kids with the sitter (Leighton Meester) and head out for a night on the town -- as the Tripplehorns. Shawn Levy (Just Married, Night at the Museum) directs this action-comedy; Mark Wahlberg and James Franco co-star.

Starring: Steve Carell, Tina Fey
Director: Shawn Levy

So so so funny! So quotable too! Sex robot!

 

The Joneses

Keeping up with the Joneses (Demi Moore, David Duchovny, Amber Heard and Ben Hollingsworth) is next to impossible, considering they're a family with good looks, fancy cars, a sprawling estate -- and a shocking secret the neighbors would never guess. Gary Cole, Glenne Headly and Lauren Hutton co-star in this smart drama about the dark side of a material world from writer-director Derrick Borte.

Starring: David Duchovny, Demi Moore
Director: Derrick Borte

 

Helen

Ashley Judd stars as Helen, an adored wife, mother and successful music professor who also struggles to mask her debilitating depression until a breakdown lands her in the hospital. But this apparent setback offers Helen a new perspective on life and her condition in the form of Mathilda (Lauren Lee Smith), a fellow patient with whom Helen forms a potent bond. Sandra Nettelbeck directs this touching drama; Goran Visnjic and Alexia Fast co-star.

Starring: Ashley Judd, Lauren Lee Smith
Director: Sandra Nettelbeck
