Friends with Kids
"The film’s revelation is Adam Scott, a second-banana comic best known for obnoxious squirts. Easing back on caricature but taking nothing off his fastball, he recalls the young Alan Alda, coming on glib and finishing vulnerable—much like this marvelous film." (David Edelstein, New York Magazine)
A poignant comedy from writer/director Jennifer Westfeldt (Ira and Abby, Kissing Jessica Stein) about the last two singles in a group of married friends who believe that kids and marriage don't mix, but kids and friendship do. Jon Hamm (AMC's Mad Men), Adam Scott (NBC's Parks and Recreation), Edward Burns (Newlyweds) and Bridesmaids’ stars, Chris O'Dowd, Maya Rudolph and Kristen Wiig, round out the ensemble cast.
Jennifer Westfeldt. 2011. 100 m. R. USA. Roadside Attractions .2:30 PM 5:05 PM 7:25 PM
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
“A very clever tale of modern ecoissues intertwined with old-style political intrigues and New Age romance.” (LA Times)
The latest from director Lasse Hallström (Chocolat, My Life as a Dog) and screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) has been producing standing ovations at festivals. It’s a quick-witted comedy about a wealthy sheik who wants to bring sport fishing to his desert country—and he just may be able to pull it off, with the help of a beautiful consultant (Emily Blunt) and a stuffy but adorable scientist (Ewan McGregor).
Lasse Hallström. 2011. 112 m. PG-13. UK. CBS Films.2:40 PM 5:10 PM 7:40 PM
