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...
A Very Harold and Kumar Christmas
You could call a movie like this a crime, a guilty pleasure, but really it's more like a misdemeanor, provided you only get caught watching a little bit of it at any one time.
Beer rating: Six Red Stripe.
Tower Heist, after the jump.
"48 Hours" meets "Ocean's 11," maybe with a little "Tropic Thunder" and "Trading Places" thrown in for good measure.
Beer rating: Several bottles of Rogue Buckwheat Ale.
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.
