Variety seems to be the word of choice when trying to describe this weekend's offerings. In fact, that pretty much sums up how the box office has looked since Fall. The studios have provided movies for a wide array of tastes in the recent past, and this weekend is no different.
If you're looking at sheer number of screens in which a movie appears, you would think that "Happily N'Ever" After was the hit of the weekend. It bills itself as "from the producers of Shrek" but in reality only one person is common between the two. It's obvious, though, that they're hoping that audiences will equate the two movies and flock to see yet another satirical take on classic fairy tale characters. I'll pass, thanks.
The movie with the most amount of potential is "Freedom Writers," starring Hilary Swank as a teacher who purposely takes on the challenge of a tough class of students and attempts to change their lives through her teaching. It's based on a true story, and our Featured Critic liked the movie for what it was, even though the formula has been done quite often before.
Then we have Cedric the Entertainer in "Code Name: The Cleaner." I guess you're either a Cedric fan or you're not, and I'm not. If you are, you're already planning on seeing it, so I won't try to talk you out of it. If you're unsure, please be sure to check out the reviews page first.
