YOUR WEEKEND PIC (Sept 8 - 10)

(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. 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.

3. BRIDES (romantic drama with Damian Lewis and Victoria Haralabidou) Rated * * * (3 stars): An engaging story of a mail-order bride and a photographer on a voyage from Eurpoe to the US to find a better life. Perfect for those who love ship romances. (At GSC International Screens)

4. THE ANT BULLY (fantasy adventure with voices of Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep & Julia Roberts) Rated * * * (3 stars): A boy, who takes out his frustrations on a colony of ants, learns some of life’s lessons when he is shrunk to ant size and taken to the colony. Great for the kids.

4. MONSTER HOUSE (Animated Kiddie Horror with the voices of Mitchel Musso, Sam Lerner, Maggie Gyllenhaal Steve Buscemi) Rated * * * (3 stars): This family film recalls Halloween, Amityville Horror and A Nightmare On Elm Street but not to worry, it won’t really freak the kids out.

5. LITTLE MAN (A typical, nonsensical Wayans Brothers comedy) Rated: * 1/2 (1.5 stars): If you can accept that a yuppie couple can mistake a 2.5-foot midget for a baby, then you deserve to be ‘bowled over’ by this crap.
