By the Numbers: Reviews of this Weekend's New Releases
08.24.07 by reelz
Several new movies are lining up this weekend to try and knock Superbad from its perch atop the box office rankings. Do any of them have what it takes to stop the latest Judd Apatow juggernaut?
A rundown of our reviews of this weekend's new releases:
The Nanny Diaries
"Stalled out in mediocre-land...unless you're a fan of the book, I'd say it's a rental." [Full Review]
Resurrecting the Champ
"Nothing can wrench this movie from the grip of a saccharine, formulaic script full of plattitudes and divided allegiances." [Full Review]
"If you've ever wondered what would happen if Martin Scorsese remade Stop! Or My Mom Will Shoot, this movie is for you." [Full Review]
The Hottest State
"Perfectly fine indie fare, but the plot and the characters seem a little more self-indulgently autobiographical than compelling." [Full Review]
Also opening this weekend: War, Mr. Bean's Holiday, September Dawn, Right at Your Door.
