Opening in Orlando -- April 27th, 2012

by

The Five-Year Engagement -- Jason Segel and Nick Stoller attempt to recapture that Forgetting Sarah Marshall magic via this portrait of a young couple on a long and winding path toward matrimony. That path had better include some fuckin’ vampire puppets, is all I’m saying. (R) [youtube iNhAslpICxE] Footnote -- Reviewed this issue. (PG)

The Pirates! Band of Misfits -- Aardman Animation casts Hugh Grant as the voice of a seafaring rogue who covets one thing and one thing only. Cheap street punanny? Nope, the Pirate of the Year award. But good guess. (PG)

Safe -- I swear to God I saw a TV spot for this pursuit thriller that listed its dramatic attributes as one-word ingredients (e.g., “Gangsters”), culminating in the minimalist, supremely persuasive “Statham.”  But I’ve looked and looked, and I can’t find the ad anywhere online. So maybe one of those narrative components -- like “car chases,” maybe -- hit the cutting-room floor at the last minute, forcing Lionsgate to pull the ad lest they run afoul of consumer watchdogs? That would suck, since I was really counting on this movie to supply 100 percent of my daily dosage of Riboflavin.  (R)
