While last week brought action to the theaters this week brings convention.  There’s a nice no-frills comedy, and a Christian tale of inspiration.  The real gold though, is in the limited releases.

Date Night

The two biggest stars of NBC’s Thursday night lineup appear together in ‘Date Night,’ an incredibly conventional comedy that still manages to get some great laughs.  It’s directed by Shawn Levy, who isn’t known  for quality films, but Tina Fey and Steve Carell manage to keep it together.  As Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune puts it, “[They]can make a formulaic movie seem fresh, simply by virtue of their respective comic chops.”

Letters to God

‘Letters to God’ is a special case.  It’s a wide release, but it was really made for a specific audience.  It’s a 3.5 million dollar movie about an alcoholic postman that receives a child’s letters to God and is unsure what to do with them.  He eventually meets the child – a boy sick with cancer – and his family and everyone ends up better for it.  Rodger Moore puts it this way, “No conflict, no drama.”

The Square (Limited)

Nash Edgerton isn’t a name you’ll be familiar with, but you’ve seen him plenty of times before.  He’s a highly successful stuntman that’s recently made the switch to director.  Usually a change like this is met with little success, but it’s difficult to find anyone with a bad word to say about his first feature film ‘The Square.’  It involves an adulterous couple, arson, blackmail, murder, and his brother and co-writer Joel Edgerton.  If it’s showing near you, this is one film you have to see.
