Prey Review


OK
It's lions, lions, and lions (oh my!) in this overwrought and only vaguely insulting woman-and-children-in-jeopardy thriller. Here's the gist: Engineer dad (Peter Weller) and his new, impossibly young wife (Bridget Moynahan) split for Africa with dad's kids in tow. He's there for work, so during the day, kids and stepmom decide to go on safari. Well, they quickly decide to go off the "main road," and junior decides he needs to go potty. He hasn't even unzipped before he's promptly consumed by a den of lions.

Kids and mom end up holed up in the car as the lions prowl outside, still hungry. To make matters worse, grating and bratty teenage sis (Carly Schroeder) hates the stepmom and blames her for everything when she isn't listening to her iPod. Gosh! Why can't the lions just leave her alone!? Finally they spot the keys outside, and mom makes a run for it. Five seconds later she's wrecked the car completely. Eventually natives wander by and help them. Meanwhile dad has hired a ranger to search for the missing car.

The Theory Of Flight Review


Good
As unlikely as comedy gets, The Theory of Flight is a perverse buddy comedy between Branagh's manic-depressive artist-cum-amateur plane builder and Carter's motor neuron disease-affected (and dying) quadriplegic. When Branagh is assigned to care for her as a public service sentence for one of his hijinks, the two form an unlikely bond -- involving Carter's desire to lose her virginity before she dies. Strange, unique, and funny in a Lynchian way.
