On this week’s ScreenCrave Movie Show, we review three of the weekend’s new releases. First, Kit Bowen and Beth Dinkel discuss The Lucky One, from The Notebook novelist Nicholas Sparks. Then, Dinkel offers a quick take on Diane Keaton’s new film Darling Companion. And we end with Bowen reviewing the new Disneynature documentary Chimpanzee.
Topics: Is The Lucky One just a sappy chick flick, or does it have more mainstream appeal? Has Zac Efron broken out of his High School Musical mold and proven that he can handle more serious work? Charlie St. Cloud wasn’t a great start, but perhaps he can rebound with this film. Does Chimpanzee follow in the tradition of African Cats and prove to be another strong entry in the Disneynature portfolio? And is Darling Companion a memorable film that can rise above the sappiness seen in other dog movies?
These topics and more are discussed on our weekly ScreenCrave Movie Show.
