Kenny. Kenny Smyth (Shane Jacobson), Australian port-a-potty entrepreneur, hopes to find a little respect at a Nashville convention of . . . port-a-potty entrepreneurs.
In Search of a Midnight Kiss.Filmed in black-and-white, this Manhattan comedy tags along with a 29-year-old man (Scoot McNairy) on a Craigslist date with a beautiful but super-intense young woman (Sara Simmonds).
The Rocker.Rainn Wilson steps out of The Office and into leather pants for this comedy about a failed rock drummer getting a second chance—with his nephew's high-school band.
Swing Vote.On the eve of the presidential election, one drunken ne'er-do-well (Kevin Costner) has the power to cast the sole deciding vote. Could be nonfiction.
Pineapple Express.Seth Rogen and James Franco are stoned on the best weed of their life and running for their lives from a killer cop in a film penned by Rogen and his Superbad writing partner, Evan Goldberg, and directed by indie darling David Gordon Green. (Admission is half-price if you bring your own bong.)
Bottle Shock.Based on the true story of a French wine-shop owner (Alan Rickman) who traveled to Napa in 1976 to set up a blind taste test between French and California wines. The must-see summer flick for wine lovers.
Tropic Thunder.Ben Stiller (who also directs), Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr. go all Rambo as Hollywood actors who don't realize that their military training is actually in a real war. With Tom Cruise in a fat-suit cameo all the world wants to see (including you).
Hamlet 2.This Sundance favorite stars Steve Coogan as a Tucson high-school teacher whose sequel to Shakespeare's "bummer" of a play thrills his students and freaks out their parents.
The House Bunny.Ditzy Playboy bunny Anna Faris becomes college-sorority house mother, a plot line that must have made for a terribly efficient pitch meeting.
The Accidental Husband. Grey's Anatomy heartthrob Jeffrey Dean Morgan and the ubiquitous Colin Firth compete for Uma Thurman's heart in this romantic comedy from actor-turned-director Griffin Dunne.
Vicky Cristina Barcelona.Woody Allen down Barcelona way, steering Javier Bardem, Penelope Cruz and Scarlett Johansson (yet again) through the complications of three-way love.
The summer in ABBA films
Mamma Mia! Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Amanda Seyfried dance and sing to the music of—who else?—ABBA.
