In theaters this week...
Salma Hayek appears with Adam Sandler in a scene from "Grown Ups 2," playing at Cinemark in Paducah this week.
“Much Ado About Nothing”
Shakespeare’s classic comedy receives a contemporary spin in Joss Whedon’s film “Much Ado About Nothing.” Shot in just 12 days (and using the original text), the story of sparring lovers Beatrice and Benedick offers a dark, and occasionally absurd, view of the intricate game that is love.
The buzz: Much Ado About Nothing’s giddy energy and intimate charm make for an entertaining romantic comedy, and a Shakespearean adaptation that’s hard to resist.
Length: 107 min.
Show times: 7 and 9:15 p.m. Friday; 4, 7 and 9:15 p.m. Saturday; 4 and 7 p.m. Sunday at Maiden Alley Cinema.
“Grown Ups 2”
Lenny Feder (Adam Sandler) moves his family back to his hometown to be with his friends, but he finds that he hasn’t left the crazy life behind in Los Angeles. Lenny’s friends must also cope with their own challenges: Eric (Kevin James) must face his ultimate fear; Kurt (Chris Rock) has gone back to work as a cable repairman; and Marcus (David Spade) learns that he has an 18-year-old son.
The buzz: The movie jumps from one crude gag to the next without a trace of plot. “Grown Ups 2”will be hard to top as worst film of 2013.
Length: 100 min.
Show times: 12:15 p.m., 2:45 p.m., 5:15 p.m., 7:45 p.m., 10:20 p.m. at Cinemark.
