It's a disappointing week in the theaters.  There are two wide releases and sadly, neither of them are very good.

The Green Hornet

This seemed like a bad idea when it was first announced, but with the right direction and writing it could really work.  Apparently that didn't happen, because 'The Green Hornet' is a mess.  Roger Ebert calls the movie "an almost unendurable demonstration of a movie with nothing to be about," and he was one of the nicer reviewers.

Still, a cast that includes Seth Rogen, Tom Wilkinson and Christoph Waltz combined with some very expensive 3D and digital effects might just be worth shelling out that ten bucks for.

The Dilemma

If 'The Dilemma' at the studio was whether or not to let Vince Vaughn and Kevin James star in a movie together, the answer should have been a resounding "no."  There's no question about whether you should go see this - you shouldn't.  The real question is how Ron Howard got involved in this mess.
