What Movie Should I Watch Over The Holidays?

Movies In Theaters on December 22, 2010

A few weeks ago I ranted about the movie studios releasing tons of movies on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, as if people can’t wait to leave their homes and see a flick. On second thought, I can actually understand families going to the theater on Christmas. First of all, you’ve got the whole religious thing, meaning not everyone in America celebrates Christmas. Secondly, for all the time you parents out there invest in finding just the right toys for Junior, you know he’s going to be bored by noon. Why not kill some brain cells while you take a nap in the dark? Well, the good news is there are three major releases set throughout this week. One is for the kiddies, one is for the whole family, and the other is apparently for every guy I know. Let’s take a look.

“Why not kill some brain cells while you take a nap in the dark?”

First up, True Grit. Every male between the ages of 8 and 94 has told me over the last couple of weeks their desire to see this movie. Starring Jeff Bridges and Matt Damon as a U.S. Marshal and Texas Ranger helping a young girl track down her father’s killer (Josh Brolin), if my scientific skills hold true, this will make in the neighborhood of $155 million dollars this weekend. Or not, since it will have the third chapter in the Meet the Parents trilogy to contend with. In Little Fockers, the whole family is back, this time with Robert De Niro visiting Ben Stiller‘s brood in Chicago to make sure that he is ready to take over as the head of the family should De Niro’s time come to an end. Fun for the whole family! Finally, we have Jack Black in Gulliver’s Travels. Honestly folks, all jokes aside, this looks bad. Black has apparently decided to take all of the bumbling fat guy roles he can before Jonah Hill pushes him out of the picture. It’s an adaptation of the classic story, which means you get to see Black as a little person in a world of giants, and then a giant in a world of little people. It’s also in 3-D, so you get to pay around $15 or so for the privilege.

True Grit and Little Fockers open on the 22nd, while Gulliver’s Travels opens Christmas Day.
