Cop Out

Posted 2/24/2010

COP OUT Don't let the inane silliness of the trailer scare you. This buddy cop/action comedy is helmed by Kevin Smith--yes, Kevin "Zack and Miri Make a Porno" Smith--who no doubt knows how to make the comedic possibilities of pairing Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan as NYC cops teenage-boy raunch funny as hell. Opens Feb. 26.

THE CRAZIES Timothy Olyphant stars as small-town sheriff contending with some kind of toxin that turns people into psychopathic wingnuts in director Breck Eisner's remake of George Romero's brilliant if underseen 1973 gem. Opens Feb. 26.

OFFICIAL REJECTION Director Paul Osborne's 2009 documentary makes crystal clear the most frustrating fact of independent filmmaking these days: while a professional production has made making a movie available, getting it seen remains a tremendous uphill battle. In 2006, Osborne and Scott Storm made an independent crime-thriller feature called Ten 'til Noon. This documentary follows their quite comical effort to get it into a film festival--any festival--and the stream of rejections they receive in the process. A must for first-time filmmakers. At the Creative Alliance at the Patterson March 1 at 7 p.m.

SON OF THE BRIDE This 2001 drama from Argentine director Juan José Campanella follows an overworked fortysomething man trying to get through his midlife crisis of health problems and his mother's losing battle with Alzheimer's. Screens Feb. 26 at Towson University's Van Bokkelen Hall Auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
