The Latest in Theaters: Panda-monium

Summer is in full swing now, and this week we have three broad comedies up against two stark dramas:
  • Kung Fu Panda: Really, it's all there in the title. Add an over hyped celebrity voice cast (Jack Black, Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman), and you've got a typical DreamWorks Animation production.
  • You Don't Mess with the Zohan: Adam Sandler as an Israeli anti-terrorist agent-turned-New York City hairdresser. Nope, no potential for offensiveness there ...
  • The Promotion: John C. Reilly and Seann William Scott are two grocery store assistant managers competing for the same job in this festival favorite.
  • When Did You Last See Your Father?: Jim Broadbent and Colin Firth play father and son coming to term with their relationship as one faces a fatal illness. Based on the autobiographical book by Blake Morrison.
  • Mongol: This year's Foreign Language nominee from Kazakhstan takes a controversial look at Genghis Khan.
