Admit One 11/5

Posted on November 5, 2010 by

Due Date

Starring: Robert Downey Jr., Zach Galifinakis, Jamie Foxx, Michele Monaghan, Juliette Lewis, Danny McBride

Directed by: Todd Phillips

Plot: An expectant father is banned from flying home for the birth of his baby so he must hitch a ride with an eccentric actor across the country.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 42%

Critic Consensus: “Shamelessly derivative and only sporadically funny, Due Date doesn’t live up to the possibilities suggested by its talented director and marvelously mismatched stars.”


Starring: Will Ferrell, Brad Pitt, Tina Fey, Jonah Hill, David Cross

Directed by: Tom McGrath, Cameron Hood

Plot: Evil genius Megamind has been fighting his nemesis Metro Man for years and finally succeeds at beating him but might have to become a hero himself when a new villain arrives.

RT Freshness: 64%

Critic Consensus: “It regurgitates plot points from earlier animated efforts, and isn’t quite as funny as it should be, but a top-shelf voice cast and strong visuals help make Megamind a pleasant, if unspectacular, diversion.”

For Colored Girls

Starring: Kimberly Elise, Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, Oprah, Loretta Devine

Directed by: Tyler Perry

Plot: An adaptation of the 1975 play about what’s it’s like to be African American and female.

RT Freshness: 36%

Critic Consensus: “Tyler Perry has assembled a fine cast for this adaptation of the 1975 play, and his heart is obviously in the right place, but his fondness for melodrama cheapens a meaningful story.”
