also helped write the script) who strug­gles to keep his life and busi­ness afloat. The genre con­ven­tions are well worn and the hu­mor is broad and ob­vi­ous, but the film is kept afloat by a win­some cast and lively cam­er­a­work by Rainer Klaus­mann. Not rated. 99 min­utes. In Ger­man and Greek with sub­ti­tles. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Robert B. Ker) THE TOWN At its best, this crime drama with a ro­man­tic sub­plot brings to mind the taut, tense heist scenes from clas­sic film noirs. But it misses the mark a bit be­cause of the script, which al­lows smart peo­ple to do stupid things a lit­tle too of­ten, and be­cause the ro­mance an­gle isn’t given enough at­ten­tion. Ben Af­fleck di­rects and stars as the one mem­ber of a four-man rob­bery crew who has a con­science. Jeremy Ren­ner is ex­cel­lent as the trig­ger-happy mem­ber of the gang. Rated R. 125 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Re­gal DeVargas, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott) YOU AGAIN High-school ri­val­ries are re­newed for both Marni (Kris­ten Bell) and her mom (Jamie Lee Cur­tis) when Marni’s ri­val Joanna (Odette Yust­man) and her pas­sive-ag­gres­sive mom (Sigour­ney Weaver) show up in their lives again. Rated PG. 105 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola; Sto­ry­teller, Taos. (Not re­viewed) WALL STREET: MONEY NEVER SLEEPS Greed is still good but not as good as it used to be in Gor­don Gekko’s re­turn. There is nice act­ing from Michael Dou­glas in a reprise of his Os­car-win­ning role, and a fine cast that in­cludes Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mul­li­gan, Frank Lan­gella, and Josh Brolin, but the script doesn’t pack enough punch where it counts in the dra­mat­ics of the fi­nan­cial melt­down, and it doesn’t give Gekko enough solid ma­te­rial to re­store his for­mer rep­til­ian luster. Rated PG-13. 127 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe; Dream­Catcher, Es­pañola. ( Jonathan Richards)
