Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 22%

Critic Consensus: “Just Go With It may be slightly better than some entries in the recently dire rom-com genre, but that’s far from a recommendation.”

Gnomeo & Juliet

Starring: James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Maggie Smith, Jason Statham

Directed by: Kelly Asbury

Plot: Lawn gnomes Gnomeo & Juliet fall in love despite coming from warring gnome factions.

RT Freshness: 52%

Critic Consensus: “While it has moments of inspiration, Gnomeo and Juliet is often too self-referential for its own good.”

The Eagle

Starring: Channing Tatum, Jamie Bell, Mark Strong, Donald Sutherland

Directed by: Kevin MacDonald

Plot: Marcus Aquila journeys with his slave Esca to try and recover his father’s lost eagle standard and figure out why he and 5,000 men disappeared.

RT Freshness: 34%

Critic Consensus: “The Eagle has a pleasantly traditional action-adventure appeal, but it’s drowned out by Kevin Macdonald’s stolid direction and Channing Tatum’s uninspired work in the central role”

Justin Bieber: Never Say Never

Starring: Justin Bieber

Directed by: Jon Chu

Plot: The rise of Justin Bieber is documented in 3D

RT Freshness: 65%

Critic Consensus: “As a tour documentary, it’s rather uninspired — but as a 3D glimpse of a building pop culture phenomenon, Never Say Never is undeniably entertaining”
