WEEKEND PIC April 20 - 22

Your Guide To The Weekend Viewing

1. WILD HOGS (comedy with Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy) Rated: * * 1/2: (out of 4): This mid-life road trip plot is so lame that it would make you cringe. However, there are some laughs and fun provided by the cast, especially Macy.

2. THE NUMBER 23 (mystery thriller with Jim Carrey and Virginia Madsen) Rated: * * 1/2 (2.5 stars): This thriller, about Jim Carrey's obsession with the number 23, gets embroiled in tedious explanations and will ultimately leave viewers dissatisfied. Blame that on Joel Schumacher's uninspired direction.
3. TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES (actioner with Patrick Stewart, Sarah Michele Gellar and Zhang Ziyi) Rated * * (2 stars): This 'sequel' of sorts tries to take the franchise closer to the dark look of the comic book series. However, it is still a kiddie flick with few surprises for adults.

4. SHOOTER (action thriller with Mark Wahlberg, Michael Pena, Kate Mara and Danny Glover) Rated * * * (3 stars): Structured like TV's "24", this fast-paced conspiracy thriller has familiar characters and cliched moments. But there are lots of twists and thrills to delight most action fans.

5. SUNSHINE (sci-fi thriller with Michelle Yeoh, Chris Evans and Cillian Murphy) Rated * * ½ (out of 4): There is a nice build-up to this plot about a mission to nuke the Sun back to life but it gets into predictable ‘slasher territory’ midway.
