DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: RODRICK RULES
Poop joke, belch joke, nerd joke, guy-can't-dance joke, mean-bully-girl joke. Bratty little brother, sadistic older brother, running around in tighty-whities, caught in the girls' bathroom. That pretty much covers it for Rodrick Rules, which is, of course, a sequel. Because when it comes to whoopee-cushion movies, 11-year-old boys can never get enough. (MB) Rated PG | SHOWTIMES

[image-1] SUCKER PUNCH
After writer-director Zack Snyder wowed fanboys with Watchmen, he decided to go for the girl-power crowd with this outrageously imaginative, action-packed tale of a young woman (Emily Browning) who’s sent to a mental institution, then plans an elaborate escape, using loud music, sharp swords, blazing guns, and her new friends: a quartet of scantily clad and quite vicious female warriors. It’s like a live-action video game run amok, accompanied by rock-fueled dance routines. (ES) Rated PG-13 | SHOWTIMES
