The Adventures of Pluto Nash: Warner Brothers doesn't want reviewers to see it, hence, no preview screenings. Translation: a big ol' stink bomb. Avoid at all costs.

Blue Crush: Hot babes, big waves, cool surfing scenes and great scenery equals...not a bad movie. See it if you have spare time and money to burn.

My Big Fat Greek Wedding: [opening in Canada, eh!] Is supposedly pretty good, if you can tolerate the stereotyping. Did good business stateside, which is why the distributors are sending it up here.

Well, that's it for me.

Pluto Nash and Blue Crush: please, the suck factor is off the scale here.

Greek Wedding: I think it is one of the better pictures this year. Good date movie.

I actually want to see Blue Crush, for some strange reason.
When I first saw the previews (before Star Wars, I think) I was like, "Oh my god this will suck." But after seeing more previews, it looks like it will rock. Good action, beautiful scenery and women, and maybe even a dash of PLOT~!
It doesn't look that bad: at least better than most teen movies. Maybe that's because it reminds me (sort of) of Point Break, which is one of my all-time favorites.

Actually the one I'm waiting for is "Posession" which is opening up here in Chicago today. I'm a drooling Neil LaBute fanboy so even though this looks like something different from him, I'll still be all over it.

Roger Ebert sez:

Blue Crush: *** [of 4]
Pluto Nash: not rated
My Big Fat Greek Wedding: *** [of 4]
Possesion: ***1/2 [of 4]
The Good Girl: ***1/2 [of 4]

Of course, compare these reviews to other recent ones:
Goldmember: **
Bloodwork: ***1/2
Crocodile Hunter: ***
Full Frontal: *1/2
Like Mike: ***
Master of Diguise: *
Men In Black 2: *1/2
Reign of Fire: *
Road to Perdition: ***
Signs: ****
XXX: ***1/2

Probably the best Barometer of Crappiness for films is RottenTomatoes (www.rottentomatoes.com), which rates positive (fresh) and negative (rotten) reviews...and weighs them. A positivity of 60% or better is a "Fresh" rating.
Blue Crush: 62% fresh [48 of 78 reviews]
Pluto Nash: 0% fresh [0 of 6 reviews]
Possesion: 65% fresh [46 of 71 reviews]
Greek Wedding: 75% fresh [53 of 71 reviews]
Good Girl: 80% fresh [41 of 51 reviews]
There you have it!

Who needs to actually go see Blue Crush, when the entire plot was shown in the trailer?

Stephen Hunter harshed terribly on Possession today in print in the Post and on Tony Kornheiser's radio show.

Seeing the ads of Blue Crush over and over again on programs I watch (every ad break on WWE Canada shows) I thought this has to be the dumbest movie ever, this looks like something that should have gone straight to video.

But I heard some surprisingly nice reviews of it, and YES the hottie factor is way UP on this flick. It might be worth a look see.

If you only want to see a movie for the ladies and are not interested in the plot, why don't you just watch porn?

Because I like girls that actually have a brain and look good and not some ditzy,fake pornstar.I like the plot but it helps its about girl/women surfers instead of male surfers.

Actually, Kate Bosworth is the only truly hot one in the flick. I've never been a Michelle Rodriguez fan, and the other chick is the living definition of a Butterface.
