Admit One 6/25

It’s the calm before the hell that is Twilight is again unleashed upon the world.

Knight & Day

Starring: Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz, Peter Sarsgaard, Viola Davis

Directed by: James Mangold

Plot: Julie Havens gets tangled up with fugitive spy Roy Miller after bumping into him on an airplane and the two go on the run from agents and assassins trying to kill them.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 52%

Critic Consensus: “It’s pure formula, but thanks to its breezy pace and a pair of charming performances from Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, Knight and Day offers some agreeably middle-of-the-road summer action.”

Grown Ups

Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider

Directed by: Dennis Dugan

Plot: Five friends meet up 30 years after graduating from high school for a Fourth of July weekend with their families.

RT Freshness: 8%

Critic Consensus: “Grown Ups’ cast of comedy vets is amiable, but they’re let down by flat direction and the scattershot, lowbrow humor of a stunted script.”
