He’s got a cushy job stamping invoices at an electronics superstore, a nice apartment with a proud collection of action figures and comic books, good friends, a nice attitude. But there’s just one thing he hasn’t quite gotten around to doing yet – something most people have done by his age. Andy’s never, ever, ever had sex. So is that such a big deal? Well, for Andy’s buds at the store, it sure is. Although they think he’s a bit of an oddball, there’s certainly a planetfull of stranger (and homelier) guys who’ve at least had one go at having a go. They consider it their duty to help Andy. But nothing proves effective enough to lure their friend out of lifelong chastity until he meets Trich (Catherine Keener), a 40-year-old mother of three.

Rated PG-13 (for violence, disturbing images, some partial nudity and thematic material)MAD HOT BALLROOM “Mad Hot Ballroom” shows the NYC public schools competing for top honors in ballroom dancing, a required course that lets students and teachers, supplied by the American Ballroom Theater, strut their best stuff in the tango, rumba, meringue and foxtrot.Like last year’s “Spellbound,” everyone gets to show competitive spirit with low-level anguish at losing and testosterone-fueled joy at winning. The strength of “Ballroom” is the enthusiasm of teachers who have little to gain but the biggest prize of all – the success of their charges. Fairly absent is the dominance of stage-door parents in the spelling competition. “Ballroom” captures the harmony that pervades a group project where the human body gracefully expresses its glory and young people experience perhaps for the first time the wonder of collective activity that ties them to peers and teachers and effaces their natural youthful loneliness, delinquent temptations, and fear of losing. Rated PG (for some thematic elements)STEALTH Cast: Josh Lucas, Jessica Biel, Jamie Foxx, Sam Shepard “Stealth” is an action thriller about a squadron of elite pilots who embark on a mission of global consequence to neutralize an out-of-control prototype drone fighter plane equipped with artificial intelligence and the ability to precipitate a nuclear war.
