Admit One 5/18

By Zach

Battleship

Starring: Taylor Kitsch, Liam Neeson, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker

Directed by; Peter Berg

Plot: A fleet of ships engaging in a war game in the Pacific Ocean becomes one of the only lines of defense when an alien force starts atacking the Earth.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 38%

Critic Consensus: “It may offer energetic escapism for less demanding filmgoers, but Battleship is too loud, poorly written, and formulaic to justify its expense — and a lot less fun than its source material”

The Dictator

Starring: Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, Jason Mantzoukas, Sayed Bradeya

Directed by: Larry Charles

Plot: Despot dictator, General Efawdh of Wadiya, comes to New York City to address the UN but ends up alone and penniless after he’s ambushed by agents of the US government.

RT Freshness: 62%

Critic Consensus: “While perhaps not as outrageous as his unscripted Borat, The Dictator finds Sacha Baron Cohen in typically riotous, provocative form”

What to Expect When You’re Expecting

Starring: Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Matthew Morrison, Anna Kendrick, Brooklyn Decker, Elizabeth Banks, Rob Huebel, Chris Rock, Tom Lennon

Directed by: Kirk Jones

Plot: A group of five couples experience different, wacky, pregnancy misadventures

RT Freshness: 26%

Critic Consensus: “The cast is stocked with likable performers, but What to Expect When You’re Expecting is too disjointed — and too reliant on stock rom-com cliches — to live up to its distinguished literary namesake”
