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...
Stuntman by day, getaway driver for the mob by night. What could go wrong with that? This sounds more like a music video than a movie. In fact, I bet it would be better without dialogue, but with a score of atmospheric 80s music.
Beer rating: Some Four Loko.
I Don't Know How She Does It, after the jump.
I Don't Know How She Does It
In a variation of her "Sex and the City" shtick, Sarah Jessica Parker plays an ueber-woman executive whose busy schedule has it all -- husband, kids, power, wealth and and old flame showing up to move forward the predictable plot. This looks like it should have went directly to Oprah's channel, or maybe the Lifetime Network.
Beer rating: An expensive whine.
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.
