NOTE: 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 playing this weekend...
This time it's a chubby zookeeper, not veterinarian Dr. Doolittle, who can talk to the animals, which, apparently are trying to hook him up on a date with Rosario Dawson (Seriously? She's into fat guys?). Didn't the beasts see "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry," where Kevin James pretended to be in love with Adam Sandler in order to get health insurance? Haven't the creatures heard of Craigslist? Why would animals care if the zookeeper gets lucky in love? Wait. Don't answer that last question.
Beer rating: Hamm's, and lots of it.
Horrible Bosses, after the jump.
Some buddies decide to off their bad bosses, which in this day and age would probably discreetly be encouraged at many offices as cost-cutting measures. This looks like an episode of one of those loud and forgettable sitcoms they keep dishing up on Comedy Central, but with middle-aged wusses instead of 20-something slackers.
WHAT?! You were looking for a REAL movie review? Our Sun-Times Media colleague Roger Ebert at the Chicago Sun-Times does a swell job at that.
