Hollywood starlet Scarlett Johansson stars in "The Nanny Diaries," which opens today, as a New York University student who goes to work for a very dysfunctional family on the Upper East Side. The movie is based on the book of the same name by Emma Mclaughlin and Nicola Kraus, which made the #1 spot on the New York Times Bestseller list. The buzz has been largely positive, so it will be interesting to see how the public responds.
We have six clips from the movie and two trailers for your viewing pleasure. "The Nanny Diaries" is rated PG-13 for language.
On the opposite side of the coin is the Jet Li and Jason "Transporter" Statham in "War," about an FBI agent (Statham) who pursues an elusive assassin (Li) be believes killed his partner and family. It's rated R for sequences of strong bloody violence, sexuality/nudity and language, so you may want to leave the toddlers home when seeing this one.
Also opening today are "Mr. Bean's Holiday" and "Resurrecting the Champ." The prospects for Mr. Bean don't look any better than the trailer, and I just can't see "Champ" gaining any traction. The best chance either of these movies have is on DVD, which shouldn't be too long after theatrical release.
Those are the wide releases, as there are a total of 15 new movies opening today. Check out our New Movies page for the full list. If you can find them playing in a theater near you, some of them look interesting enough to check out!
Coming Wednesday is the ping pong action comedy "Balls of Fury." Yes, that's right. I said "ping pong action comedy." If you think that sounds off-base, you should watch the trailer! Sometimes, you wonder how these movies get approved...
But, who am I to judge? I'm sure that there are people out there that enjoy the kind of comedy that a movie like this delivers. Perhaps I'm being too judgmental, based only upon the trailer.
Feel free to check out the Trailers & Videos page and check out the trailer and clips we have available, and judge for yourself if this is the funniest movie of the summer, or if it should have gone directly to the $4.97 bin at Wal-Mart.
