THE LAKE HOUSE Cast: Sandra Bullock, Keanu Reeves In “The Lake House,” a lonely doctor (Sandra Bullock) begins exchanging love letters with a frustrated architect (Keanu Reeves), only to discover that they are actually living two years apart. Rated PG (for some language and a disturbing image)THE BREAK-UPCast: Vince Vaughn, Jennifer Aniston Pushed to the breaking-up point after their latest “why can’t you do this one little thing for me?” argument, art dealer Brooke (Jennifer Aniston) calls it quits with her boyfriend, Gary (Vince Vaughn), who hosts bus tours of Chicago. What follows is a series of remedies, war tactics, overtures and underminings suggested by the former couple’s friends, confidantes and the occasional total stranger. When neither ex is willing to move out of the condo they used to share, the only solution is to continue living as hostile roommates until somebody caves. But somewhere between protesting the pool table in the living room, the dirty clothes stacked in the kitchen cupboards, and the sports played at sleep-killing volume in the middle of the night, Brooke begins to realize that what she may really be fighting for isn’t so much the place as the person. Rated PG-13 (for sexual material/humor and language)

THE BREAK-UP Rated PG-13CLICK Cast: Adam Sandler, Kate Beckinsale, Christopher Walken “Click” – Adam Sandler’s latest comedy overflows with the juvenile hijinks that made him the cinematic god of idiocy among 13-year-old boys of all ages. The movie also ventures into the adult territory Sandler has tentatively mined with “Punch-Drunk Love” and “Spanglish.” As an overworked family man who’s given a remote control that magically allows him to take command of his messy home and office life, Sandler spends much of the movie engaging in mean-spirited, Three Stooges-like mayhem. But as tiresomely sub-moronic as the first half of the movie often is, Sandler and director Frank Coraci manage to craft genuine pathos toward the end out of a character who comes to regret taking the easy way out as the remote leaves his life in ruins. Christopher Walken’s a hoot as the salesman who provides the remote. Kate Beckinsale, David Hasselhoff, Henry Winkler and Julie Kavner co-star. Rated PG-13 (for language, crude and sex-related humor, and some drug references) Two stars out of four.- David Germain, AP Movie Writer NACHO LIBRE Jack Black stars as Ignaciao (friends call him Nacho), a cook by day in a Mexican orphanage, who moonlights as a lucha libre wrestler to raise money for the orphans in this comedy from the creators of “Napolean Dynamite” and the writer of “School of Rock.” Rated PG (for some rough action, and crude humor including dialogue)CARS Voices: Paul Newman, Owen Wilson, Bonnie Hunt, Cheech Marin, George Carlin Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson), a hotshot rookie race car driven to succeed, discovers that life is about the journey, not the finish line, when he finds himself unexpectedly detoured in the sleepy Route 66 town of Radiator Springs. On route across the country to the big Piston Cup Championship in California to compete against two seasoned pros, McQueen gets to know the town’s offbeat characters – including Sally (a snazzy 2002 Porsche voiced by Bonnie Hunt), Doc Hudson (a 1951 Hudson Hornet with a mysterious past, voiced by Paul Newman) and Mater ( a rusty but trusty tow truck voiced by Larry the Cable Guy) — who help him realize that there are more imprtant things than trophies, fame and sponsorships. Rated G (all audiences)THE OMEN Cast: Julia Stiles, Live Schreiber, Mia Farrow The prophecy is clear, the signs unmistakable: Armageddon is upon us. On 6/6/06, the omen is revealed…and our darkest fears are realized. “The Omen,” a contemporary thriller based on the 1976 classic film, centers around a young boy named Damien, the son of an American diplomat and his wife.
