This Week’s Releases

- Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby
- The Descent
- The Night Listener
- The Amateurs (Limited)
- The Bridesmaid (Limited)
- My Country, My Country (Limited)
Talladega has some early buzz, but I doubt NASCAR fans know when they’re being made fun of. The animation in Barnyard looks terrible and the late-summer release date tells me that even the studio thinks it’s garbage. Reviews of The Descent are promising (it’s already out in the UK), if you like claustrophobic horror films.
All releases are Friday, except where noted. “Limited” releases are usually New York/LA (check your local theaters).
