Vin Diesel and Paul Walker in The Fast & the FuriousTHE FAST & THE FURIOUS

In The Fast & The Furious, that stolid, basso profundo actor Vin Diesel is forced into a close friendship with the blond, pretty, incredibly bland Paul Walker, so you know immediately that you’re in make-believe territory once again.

Halle Berry and Hugh Jackman in SwordfishSWORDFISH, ATLANTIS: THE LOST EMPIRE, and LARA CROFT, TOMB RAIDER

ShrekSHREK

Let’s face it: Kids are gonna love Shrek, Dreamworks’ comedic, computer-animated fairy tale. They’ll get a kick out of the loud, outsize characters and superb visuals, and they’ll probably laugh a lot. No one under 12 will want to miss it.

As for the rest of us ... .
