The ladies are taking over the box office this weekend with an Angelina Jolie actioner and a couple of sisters from the mind of Beverly Cleary.
Starring: Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Andre Braugher
Directed by: Phillip Noyce
Plot: CIA Agent Evelyn Salt becomes a fugitive when she is accused of being a Russian sleeper agent who will kill the president.
Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 56%
Critic Consensus: “Angelina Jolie gives it her all in the title role, and her seasoned performance is almost enough to save Salt from its predictable and ludicrous plot.”
Ramona and Beezus
Starring: Selena Gomez, Joey King, John Corbett, Sandra Oh, Bridget Moynahan
Directed by: Elizabeth Allen II
Plot: Based on the books by Beverly Cleary, the plot follows the misadventures of imaginative Ramona Quimby and her big sister Beezus.
RT Freshness: 69%
Critic Consensus: “Ramona and Beezus is sunny, sweet, and wholesome, but it fails to capture the essence of its classic source material.”
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
