Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 75%

Critic Consensus: “Chimpanzee often anthropomorphizes its subjects, but it’s a beautifully filmed, remarkably intimate look at the lives of a family of primates”

The Lucky One

Directed by: Scott Hicks

Plot: Iraq war vet Logan Thibault returns home on a mission to find the woman in a picture he found that he believes saved his life when he stopped to pick it up and escaped a nearby explosion.

RT Freshness: 21%

Critic Consensus: “While it provides the requisite amount of escapist melodrama, The Lucky One ultimately relies on too many schmaltzy clich├ęs to appeal to anyone not already familiar with the Nicholas Sparks formula”

Think Like a Man

Starring: Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Regina Hall, Kevin Hart, Taraji P. Henson

Directed by: Tim Story

Plot: Four friends are forced to scramble when the ladies in their lives buy and put to use the advice in Steve Harvey’s “Think Like a Man” advice book.

RT Freshness: 50%

Critic Consensus: “In Think Like a Man, an otherwise standard rom-com is partially elevated by a committed — and attractive — cast, resulting in a funny take on modern romance”
