Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 15%

Philadelphia Inquirer: “Just about the only folks likely to find this humdrum hybrid of Mission: Impossible and The Wind in the Willows worthy for consideration are non-discriminating pip-squeaks happy to watch rodents rappelling walls and scampering along air ducts.”

The Ugly Truth

Starring: Katherine Heigl, Gerard Butler

Directed by: Robert Luketic

Plot: A morning TV show producer is paired up with a rowdy TV star and the battle of the sexes begins.

RT Freshness: 12%

Critic Consensus: “Despite the best efforts of Butler and Heigl, The Ugly Truth suffers from a weak script that relies on romantic comedy formula, with little charm or comedic payoff.”

Orphan

Starring: Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, Isabelle Fuhrman

Directed by: Jaume Collett-Sera

Plot: A couple who recently lost an unborn child decide to adopt and find the seemingly perfect Esther.  But it’s soon revealed that Esther has a dark side.

RT Freshness: 50%

Critic Consensus: “While it has moments of dark humor and the requisite scares, Orphan fails to build on its interesting premise and degenerates into a formulaic, sleazy horror/thriller.”
