This weekend the Nicolas Cage threat level is raised to near Wicker Man levels as Knowing comes out and it’s only a few percentage points above that terror’s freshness. We also have the bromantic comedy I Love You, Man and the spymantic comedy of Duplicity.
Starring: Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne, Ben Mendelsohn
Directed by: Alex Proyas
Plot: Professor John Koestler discovers a set of random numbers that predicts disasters before they happen.
Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 21%
Critic Consensus: Knowing has some interesting ideas and a couple good scenes, but it’s weighted down by its absurd plot and over-seriousness.
Starring: Clive Owen, Julia Roberts, Paul Giamatti, Tom Wilkinson
Directed by: Tony Gilroy
Plot: Two former spies are hired by two separate companies to secure a formula for a product that will be worth a fortune for whoever gets it.
RT Freshness: 65%
Critic Consensus: Duplicity is well-crafted, smart, and often funny, but it’s mostly more cerebral than visceral and features far too many plot twists.
I Love You, Man
Starring: Paul Rudd, Jason Segel, Rashida Jones, Andy Samberg
Directed by: John Hamburg
Plot: Paul Rudd realizes he has no male friends who could be the best man at his upcoming wedding so he goes on a series of man dates to find one.
RT Freshness: 77%
Critic Consensus: I Love You, Man makes the most of its simple premise due to the heartfelt and hilarious performances of Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
