Furry Vengeance (PG)


Written to the tastes of lazy 5-year-olds, director Roger Kumble (Cruel Intentions) attempts kids’ comedy. Brendan Fraser milks the last drop of his boyish charm as a real estate developer who moves his wife (a blank Brooke Shields) and son to an Oregon forest. Blind to his boss’ (Ken Jeong) plan to pillage the verdant land, he becomes enemy to the area’s woodland creatures who assault him with animal-made booby traps.

The Losers (PG-13)

Hot on the trail of Kick-Ass’s experiment in vacant violence, The Losers is equally wrongheaded. A team of U.S. Special Forces, led by Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Clay, gets double-crossed and then joins up with a mercenary named Aisha (Zoe Saldana) who insists they seek revenge against CIA baddie Max (Jason Patric). The film’s politics, like this entire effort, are sketchy. Each character seems to have sauntered in from a different movie.
