Fantastic Four - ok this movie is probably getting higher marks cuz of my low expectations- but I enjoyed this flick-I thought that Julian McMahon(Dr. Christian Troy on Nip/Tuck) was excellent as Victor Von Doom/Dr. Doom and that they did a good job casting this flick- sure the plot/story was your typical hero origin story- the chemistry of the team was spot-on -from the juvenile barbs between Thing and The Human Torch to the rivalry between Doom and Reed Richards. Not the top of the super hero comic book movie food chain but more enjoyable than Daredevil or The Hulk. C+

Broken Lizard's Puddlecruiser - a cute campus based romantic comedy about a guy who falls in love witha girl that also dates a rugby player from another college.Not as over the top as Super Troopers or Club Dread - this movie feels like Outside Providence - the more realistic feeling boarding school romance flick the Farrelly brothers did in between their more over the top movies There's Something About Mary and Shallow Hal . This movie had lots of subtle comedy sprinkled throughout and seemed to capture the going to college vibe perfectly-not worth seeking out or anything- but a good diversion on a rainy day. C+
