The Devil's Double: Dominic Cooper plays both Uday Hussein, the monstrous elder son of Iraqi strongman Saddam Hussein; and Latif Yahia, a valorous Iraqi soldier who served as Uday's body double. Both are one-note characters in this relentlessly hellish film, though Cooper works wonders with the material he's been given.

Spy Kids: All the Time in the World: The franchise's new spy kids (Rowan Blanchard, Mason Cook) pursue an evil genius (Jeremy Piven) who's stealing time from the world. The film benefits greatly from its two likable leads and some of the series' wittiest writing.
