The Simpsons Movie: America's favorite nuclear family finally makes the transition to the big screen in this 88-minute episode about Homer causing both a family and an ecological crisis.

Stardust: This tale of a young man (Charlie Cox) who goes on a quest to retrieve a fallen star (Claire Danes) and fight an evil witch (Michelle Pfeiffer) feels too clogged with fairy dust. But the actors appear to be having way too much fun with their roles to worry about the niceties of narrative overcrowding.
