WEEKEND PIC April 27 - 29

Your Guide To The Weekend Viewing

1. WILD HOGS (comedy with Tim Allen, John Travolta, Martin Lawrence and William H. Macy) Rated: * * ½ (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 veteran 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. TMNT (actioner with Patrick Stewart, Sarah Michele Gellar and Zhang Ziyi) Rated * * (2 stars): This 'sequel' of sorts tries to take the Ninja Turtles franchise closer to the dark look of the comic book series. However, it is still a kiddie flick with few surprises for adults.

4. SPIRIT OF THE VICTIM (Thai horror with Pitchanart Sakakorn, Apasiri Nitibhon and Penpak Sirikul ) Rated * * (2 stars): A convoluted plot, incorporating a film-within-a-film makes this Thai effort a run-of-the-mill thriller with a few scares.

5. THE HILLS HAVE EYES 2 (suspense thriller with Michael McMillan, Jessica Stroup, Daniella Alonso and Jacob Vargas) Rated * ½ (1.5 stars): This sequel to the 2006 remake is just a lame excuse to load viewers with blood and gore. It is filled with cardboard characters whom we do not care about.
