(A guide to help you plan your cinema-going)

1. MY SUPER Ex-GIRLFRIEND (fantasy romantic comedy with Uma Thurman and Luke Wilson) Rated * * * (out of 4): Breaking up is hard to do but what if your girlfriend is a superhero? Nice sitcom-styled caper with some over-the-top gags.

2. THE BANQUET (Chinese rendition of Shakepeare’s Hamlet with Zhang Ziyi, You Ge and Daniel Wu) Rated * * ½ (2.5 stars): Ever attended a Banquet where everything looks good and stylish but the food tastes bad and is not even filling. Well, this movie is something like that.

3. MY NAME IS FAME (romantic comedy with Lau Ching-Wan and Huo Si-yan) Rated: * * * (3 stars): This is the Hong Kong version of A Star Is Born with an engaging performance by Lau and newcomer Huo. Nice date movie for couples.

4. YOU, ME & DUPREE (comedy with Owen Wilson, Kate Hudson and Matt Dillon) Rated * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): After crashing weddings, Wilson is into breaking up marriages as a good-for-nothing buddy who overstays his welcome at the house of newlyweds Hudson and Dillon. Strictly for Wilson fans.

5. S’KALI (local drama in English with Zimy Rozan and Jayaram Nagaraj) Rated * * (2 stars): A tale of five close friends who have to grapple with friendship, love and separation. Slow and talky but with some surprises (Exclusively at Cathay Cineleisure Damansara).
