"Step Up 2 the Streets"
Are you ready to rumba? This follow-up to the 2006 teen mini-hit "Step Up" again mingles the raw world of street hoofing with the refined circles of formally trained dancers. This one lands a rough but talented street dancer (Briana Evigan) at the Maryland School of the Arts, where she tries to blend in with snooty classmates and teams up with a hotshot student (Robert Hoffman) to compete in an underground dance competition.
"College Road Trip"
Martin Lawrence makes life miserable for Raven-Symone as they hit the highway in this family comedy. Lawrence plays a well-meaning but meddlesome dad who butts into his daughter's hunt for the right college, accompanying her and her friends on their mishap-laden trip.
"The Bank Job"
Jason Statham makes an unauthorized withdrawal in this solid heist flick from director Roger Donaldson. Statham stars as a car dealer who meets up with a beautiful woman (Saffron Burrows) from his old haunts and gets in way over his head after she lets him in on a robbery of cash and jewels from a London bank.
This horror tale centers on a photographer (Joshua Jackson) and his new wife (Rachael Taylor) who are exposed to a vengeful spirit from beyond on a trip to Japan, where the photos that result contain ghostly images of a woman on a haunting mission. The movie is available on DVD in the theatrical version or an unrated cut.
Christina Ricci is the fairest pig-faced girl in the land in this contemporary twist on fairy-tale romance. The comic tale stars Ricci as a young woman afflicted by a family curse — the snout of a pig — with James McAvoy as a suitor who may hold the key to lifting the curse. Ricci and McAvoy are backed by a great cast that includes Catherine O'Hara, Peter Dinklage, Richard E. Grant and Reese Witherspoon, who also is a producer on the film.
