The Tourist (PG-13)


Elise (Angelina Jolie) is a double-agent meeting the man of her dreams, Alexander, in Venice. Following Alexander’s instructions, Elise befriends American high school teacher Frank (Johnny Depp) to throw Interpol off their trail. The Tourist is a glamorous and lighthearted espionage comedy. The plot doesn’t make sense because it’s not supposed to. Check your brain with the usher and enjoy the beauty of Venice, Depp and Jolie.

The Next Three Days (R)

Writer/director Paul Haggis’ prison-break drama is so full of plot holes that it defies all suspension of disbelief. Russell Crowe and Elizabeth Banks play husband and wife John and Lara. When Lara is jailed for murder, John takes a crash course in how to break Lara out. Haggis phones in the would-be suspense elements in favor of some heavy emoting from Crowe.
