While its weekend gross fell pretty far short of its projected range, the latest Marvel film made a respectable amount of money over the weekend—certainly enough to place it well ahead of the other two new releases (this is hardly an accomplishment, however, as one is an indie film and the other opened in just enough theaters to qualify as a wide release).

This weekend could offer a chance at redemption for a somewhat fallen franchise—after the disappointment of The Last Stand and Origins: Wolverine, the X-Men films need a film to redeem them. This weekend’s sequel to Wolverine’s solo film might offer just that, and for those who aren’t very invested in the fate of this Marvel icon, there’s a quirky, risqué comedy and a coming out as well.

Review:The To Do List—Second Sex

12:42 AM 7/26/2013 by Sara Vizcarrondo
By the 90s, John Hughes had traded teen fans for family audiences, aging with the crowds who loved 16 Candles with Home Alone, consequently leaving an empty space at the multiplex for trenchant teen comedies. In my imagination, Hollywood voted to postpone the second coming of the brat pack, perhaps until it was acceptable for the new Molly Ringwald to be friskier.


Critics Consensus: The Wolverine Is Pretty Sharp – This week at the movies, we've got an embattled mutant (The Wolverine, starring Hugh Jackman and Rila Fukushima); an uptight valedictorian (The To Do List, starring Aubrey Plaza and Johnny Simmons); and a lonely teenager (The Way, Way Back, starring Liam James and Steve Carell). What do the critics have to say? 7 years 26 weeks ago via jackiechan

We've had plenty of solid R-rated comedies over the last 10 years, but even as funny as hits like Knocked Up or Superbad might be at their best, they still tend to represent a skewed, weirdly sanitized version of human sexuality -- and one that's oddly less honest, in some ways, than the picture offered by the (often rather lame) raunchy comedies of the '80s.
