Fast Five, Prom and Hoodwinked Take Over Theaters this Weekend
If you are heading to the movies this weekend. One for the guys and the ladies (if you love looking at Dwayne Johnson, Paul Walker or Vin Diesel), and one for the kids. Here’s this week’s Family Friendly Box Office Review.
“Fast Five“ (PG-13)
The latest “Fast and Furious” reunites Vin Diesel and Paul Walker with the other stars of the previous movies, including Jordana Brewster, Ludacris, and Tyrese. Here’s what you need to know to bring you up to speed:
Paul Walker’s not a cop anymore. He’s hanging out with Vin Diesel who he broke out of jail with the help of Diesel’s sister and they’re trying to steal $100 million out of police custody. The Rock is the federal agent trying to catch them.
“Prom“ (PG) (Limited)
A Disney movie about a group of teenagers getting ready for their high school prom. It stars Aimee Teegarden. She played Julie Taylor on “Friday Night Lights”.
Red Riding Hood was voiced by Anne Hathaway in the first movie. Anne’s gotten a lot more famous since then, so Hayden Panettiere does the voice in this one. Don’t worry, your kids won’t be able to tell the difference.
Glenn Close is still Granny and Patrick Warburton is still the wolf. Here are some other voices you’ll want to listen for: Brad Garrett as the Giant, Cheech & Chong as a couple minor characters, and a cameo by Heidi Klum as . . . wait for it . . . Heidi.
Granny, Red, Wolf and Twitchy the squirrel join a secret spy organization to ensure all fairy tales have happy endings. Aren’t you sorry you asked?
“Dylan Dog: Dead of Night“ (PG-13)
Brandon Routh stars as Dylan Dog in this horror comedy that’s based on a popular comic book. Dylan is a private detective who takes on vampires, werewolves and zombies as part of his job.
Sam Huntington is in the role of his whiny friend. You’d know him as the neurotic werewolf on SyFy’s “Being Human”. You’ll also recognize Taye Diggs and wrestler Kurt Angle among the undead.
