Movies You Can Take Mom to This Weekend

June 4, 2009


Here are your options:

The Hangover
Director: Todd Phillips
Starring: Bradley Cooper, Zach Galifianakis, Ed Helms, a baby, Mike Tyson, a tiger.
Good if you want to see: post-debauchery comedy; a fat, bearded man in his underwear; a baby; Mike Tyson; a tiger.

Land of the Lost
Director: Brad Silberling
Starring: Will Ferrell, Danny McBride, Anna Friel
Good if you want to see: dinosaurs; nightmarish, dead-eyed lizard men; a campy children's television series from the '70s remade as an insanely expensive film for some reason.

My Life in Ruins
Director: Donald Petrie
Starring: Nia Vadalos, Rachel Dratch, Richard Dreyfuss
Good if you want to see: that those previews you keep noticing for My Big Fat Greek Wedding are actually for an entirely different movie.

Away We Go (limited)
Director: Sam Mendes
Starring: John Krasinski, Maya Rudolph.
Good if you want to see: how hard it is to be a directionless 30-something, you know?
