This summer's last major sequel, Rush Hour 3, arrives in theaters this week, signaling that the much-hyped "Summer of Sequels" is finally beginning to wind down. Taking on the formidable duo of Chan and Tucker is the fantasy epic Stardust, based on Neil Gaiman's acclaimed graphic novel.
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
Rush Hour 3
"Pure summer popcorn entertainment--giant explosions, crazy stunts, and big laughs. Ratner et al. know that and make no pretensions to be anything else." [Full Review]
"A diversionary treat — a lively little pop fairytale that flits back and forth from one colorful character to another." [Full Review]
Daddy Day Camp
"Scatological humor abounds throughout this follow-up as Fred Savage stumbles his way through his directorial debut, desperate to eke out a laugh of any kind. Alas, there are no laughs to be found." [Full Review]
"Blitz is clearly a director who trusts his audience's intellect, and as a result I found Rocket Science to be a good, endearing movie." [Full Review]
Also opening this weekend: Skinwalkers, Descent, 2 Days in Paris.
