Hitch -- Breezy romantic comedy gets a big boost here with winning portrayals by Will Smith as the title character, a "date coach" for unsure men trying to win the women of their dreams, and by Kevin James (The King of Queens) as one of those men, who is shooting for the sky with a beautiful heiress (Amber Valletta). But the coach, himself, isn't having much luck with the ladies, and when his eyes pop over workaholic gossip columnist Eva Mendes, things get complicated. We all know how this is going to end. But getting there involves witty, sometimes slapstick fun. (ES) Rated PG-13





Pooh's Heffalump Movie -- We don't wanna ruin anyone's kiddie movie, but shouldn't Pooh be more worried about his 64 percent body fat and honey-spiked insulin levels than imagining scary "Heffalumps" running around the Hundred Acre Wood? The only Heffalump we see is the one encircling Pooh's non-existent waist. OK, the real story is that our favorite fuzzy bear, along with pals Piglet and Tigger, set out in search of the scary and mysterious Heffalumps. But Roo is already one step ahead of them and finds out that Heffalumps aren't that scary at all - in fact, they're kinda cuddly! Awwww.... Rated: G
