Holiday Movie Reviews

Four major movies open today as we hit the long holiday weekend. Being extra busy lately, I wasn't able to screen any of the films before their release. But I thought it would be helpful to summarize some key reviews for each. Looks like Tangled is your best bet in a weak bunch.

Happy Thanksgiving!
