Battleship

(PG-13) ★★☆☆☆

There will be bigger movies this summer, and better ones and worse ones. But there will not be a dumber movie than Battleship. Ponderous and pandering, shameless and head-slappingly silly, this Navy vs. Aliens epic delivers a few thrills and a few laughs. Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard play Navy men trying to stop the alien invasion, and Rihanna, Brooklyn Decker and Liam Neeson are also along for the ride.

What to Expect When You’re Expecting

By Tribune Media Services

(PG-13) ★★★☆☆ Assorted couples cope with pregnancies planned and unplanned, adoption, and the epic change coming to their lives. It’s wafer-thin, but it has plenty of laughs. What’s surprising is how touching this film manages to be. Director Kirk Jones and the screenwriters found real pathos in adapting author Heidi Murkoff’s pregnancy bible. The ensemble cast includes Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks, Anna Kendrick, Dennis Quaid and Chris Rock.
