New Movie Releases: Fish 'n Switch

View Chris Kavan's Profile

By Chris Kavan - 08/20/10 at 10:20 AM CT

With summer pretty much over, this could be the last weekend before school takes a big chunk of the audience out of the picture. So, just like moving in can be a hectic procedure, it seems Hollywood is throwing out every genre, hoping one sticks with audiences, though many are predicting that holdovers The Expendables and Eat, Pray, Love will hold up.

1) Piranha 3D - I really don't think this movie is going to be good per se, but it does like it will be loads of fun. Much like The Expendables is a throwback to the action days of old, Piranha 3D is a throwback to a more old-school horror/comedy hybrid of the 80s. I'm sure there will be gore, but it doesn't look like it takes itself seriously at all. I think this would be a hit for a group, drinking is optional but encouraged.

2) The Switch - Trying to vie with Eat, Pray, Love for the female audience is this romantic comedy about a guy who substituted a sperm sample with his own deposit and now must come forward. The track record of Jennifer Aniston is mixed, as well as Jason Bateman. The premise looks promising, but romantic comedies are a hard sell with me.

3) Nanny McPhee Returns - Trying to snag the family audience on more time is this British import. The first Nanny did decent business, but it remains to be seen if this cut-rate Mary Poppins can win them over again. I don't know if it will produce a big bang or a whimper, but considering it's the only new truly family film coming out, it might court some attendance.

4) Vampires Suck - I hate these awful parody films, but they still manage to draw in enough people to keep financing more of them. I admit, I watch them on cable from time to time but I'll be caught dead watching one in a theater. I hope this crashes and burns.

5) Lottery Ticket - Billed as the spiritual successor to Friday, this movie about a young man winning the lottery, but not being able to cash it in over a holiday weekend, looks like it should be a modest hit. I always thought the Friday films had a bit of edge to go with the comedy, and I can't say whether or not this will follow that pattern.

There you have it - a film for many tastes... many of them bad tastes, but tastes none-the-less. For all the information on the films coming out this week, visit the FilmCrave New Movie Releases page today.
