Now it’s time for another installment of “What to Watch this Weekend.” So, before you get high with your friends in a Taco Bell parking lot in honor of 420, make sure to read up on what movies you high-self should view this weekend.
The Lucky One: Looks like all that singing in high school did not change Zac Efron’s mind about joining the Marines. In “The Lucky One,” based on the Nicholas Sparks book, Efron plays a Marine who goes on a search for a woman who he claims was his good luck charm all through his three tours in Iraq. Efron had to gain 18 pounds for this role, and he is probably the prettiest man on the Marines. And pretty people with guns need all the good luck charms they can get their hands on, and in Efron’s case, that good luck charm just happens to be a hot blonde.
Watch it or Drop it?: WATCH IT: Because you still haven’t forgiven yourself for crying during the Notebook, and you want to make sure it was just a fluke.
Think Like A Man: Based on the best seller by Steve Harvey, “Think Like a Man,” involves a lot of black folks bantering about love. No, this movie does not have Tyler Perry’s fingerprints on it. He did not write it, he did not direct it, he did not hang around on set. This is a black comedy that actually has nothing to do with Tyler Perry. And for that, we commend it.
Watch it or Drop it?: DROP IT: While their are a lot of talented comedians in this film, the trailer seems to go the route of the bread on my counter top, meaning the jokes are stale.
* For those who choose to stay at home and get high and drown themselves in junk food, here are some DVD picks that can accompany you.
Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol: Tom Cruise returns in another installment to the Mission Impossible series. There will be explosions, hot chicks driving fast cars, and Tom Cruise swinging from building to building for some reason.
Watch it or Drop it?: WATCH IT: The gals have Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, and Josh Holloway. And the guys have another Mission Impossible movie. Done.
Shame:This film is basically about a man who is bummed out because his sister is getting in the way of him getting boatloads of action at every possible opportunity. Yes, that man is Michael Fassbender, and yes, he known for being well endowed.
Watch it or Drop it?: WATCH IT. Because you want to see just how well endowed he is.
