The Big Bang The­ory’s Melissa Rauch stars as Hope Greg­gory, a foul-mouthed for­mer Olympic bronze medal­list who’s been mooching off her ever-fad­ing celebrity sta­tus. When she meets Olympic hope­ful Mag­gie Townsend (Ha­ley Lu Richard­son), Hope agrees to coach her – in ex­change for half a mil­lion dol­lars. It’s a re­demp­tion com­edy in which a snarky loser finds her feet and pride. ✪✪✪


This slick se­quel fol­lows ma­gi­cians Danny At­las (Jesse Eisen­berg), Mer­ritt Mck­in­ney (Woody Har­rel­son), Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) and new­comer Lula (Lizzy Ca­plan) as they’re co­erced by tech ty­coon Wal­ter Mabry (Daniel Rad­cliffe) into pulling off the ul­ti­mate heist. With Mor­gan Free­man, Michael Caine and Mark Ruf­falo, you’re in for all-star ac­tion.

Even if you know noth­ing about base­ball and don’t like fra­ter­nity par­ties, this ’80s com­ing-of-age com­edy has sur­pris­ing depth as it re­veals the ex­pe­ri­ence of univer­sity life through the eyes of fresh­man Jake (Blake Jen­ner).


Michelle Dar­nell (Melissa Mccarthy) is a busi­ness mogul who lands up in jail for in­sider trad­ing. On her re­lease, she de­cides to rein­vent a medi­ocre Brownie troop and turns to the only per­son will­ing to help, her for­mer em­ployee Claire (Kris­ten Bell). A big-hearted Mccarthy com­edy.

“Per­haps my bra is a lit­tle large,” Te­gan con­ceded.

“Who us? We’d never lie!” said Terry and Kim.

“I can see clearly now my shades are on,” they sang.
