Brew Reviews: Knight and Day, Grown Ups

Thumbnail image for danahey2 copy.jpgNOTE: In a revival of this "classic" Friday feature, Courier-News reporter Mike Danahey guesses how much beer (or other beverage of choice) it might take him to pay money to see a recently-released movie. His opinions are based on trailers, ads and advance hype.

Here are some of the movies that opened this past weekend...

Knight and Day

With Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz, this looks like the high-budget version of that movie that came out a few weeks ago with Ashton Kutcher -- the one where Kutcher is a retired spy who gets outed, so to speak. This looks loud and lame.

Brew rating: A case of Old Style.

Grown Ups, after the jump.

Grown Ups

Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James and friends in a movie made 1,000 times about guys who are having a hard time accepting they are now middle aged. So expect a soggy in-the-middle movie, with predictable jokes and some dewy-eyed wisdom about growing old.

Brew rating: A case of Coors Light.

WHAT?! You were looking for a REAL movie review? Our Sun-Times Media colleagues Roger Ebert at the Chicago Sun-Times and Josh Larsen at the Naperville Sun do a swell job at that.
