What's Playing 04/11/08

I really am beginning to think that the studios totally give up in late March and early April as they get closer to summer. There is just next to nothing opening during that time and it shows here. Opening this weekend are things that may kill you, may scare you, and may just make you smarter. Dennis Quaid learns that there are other, smarter, people in his life. Keanu Reeves stars as a cop just trying to adjust. And yes, we have yet another horror remake. So will I see you at the movies? That remains to be seen.
