News: Cheese in Theaters

Wanderlust- 57%, Certified Rotten

What is it: An indie comedy starring Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston as a fancy pants Manhattan couple who find themselves on the road after going through a bit of a rough patch. They end up in an idyllic town called Elysium where things just seem different. I’m sure the word quirky describes this movie quite nicely. Love Paul Rudd, Aniston I could take or leave. Probably one of those movies you’re going to see on Rudd’s page in a few years and think “What the hell is that?”

Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds- 33%, Certified Rotten

What is it: Tyler Perry plays a good man named… Deeds (for reals) who meets a strange lady and has his life turned upside down. Is there a more famous and successful person on the planet with less talent than Perry? To date, Perry has been in TWO Certified Fresh movies: 2009’s “I Can Do Bad All By Myself” and 2009’s “Star Trek,” which I had no idea he was in. And yet, Perry’s movies come out against no competition, scratch together a profit and Perry gets to act like he’s the voice of a generation. Man’s a hell of a salesman, but filmmaker he is not.

Act of Valor- 26%, Certified Rotten

What is it: “Act of Valor” stars active duty US Marines in a fictionalized story about their day-to-day lives. I assume this movie was made for people who got tired of actually playing “Call of Duty” and want to sit and watch others play for a bit. Awesome.

Gone- 9%, Certified Rotten

What is it: Amanda Seyfried’s sister gets kidnapped and our gal is convinced it’s the same dude who once kidnapped her. So she sets out on a race against time to find her sister and give the SOB what what. I guess maybe it’s like “Taken” but with a blond girl.
