For some families, having a live-in shrink isn’t nearly enough. The Petunia family has a storied history of avoiding real feelings: Mom is a therapist who needs a shrink of her own; dad hides erectile dysfunction under an oblivious and disaffected non-personality; and brothers Michael and Adrian are hiding infidelity and sex addiction, respectively. Throw in mean NYC princess for a sister-in-law, and you have Charlie's biggest problem: his crazy family. At first glance, Charlie looks positively Bond-like in his tuxedo but in fact, he is the polar opposite of the suave lady killer. Instead of drinking martinis and living it up, Charlie spends his brother’s wedding reception avoiding the dance floor and securing his self-imposed celibacy by snapping the rubber band on his wrist anytime he feels aroused by the formal-wear-clad young men in the room. Charlie finally finds a guy he’s willing to break his “no sex” vow for when he meets and starts dating George McDougal. But George is hiding something from Charlie - his wife - and their relationship hits a complicated snag when she returns unexpectedly from a long trip . . .

Limited Releases: Looking for Redemption

June 28th, 2013

There are nine films on this week's list, with quite a few having strong reviews or impressive casts. Unfortunately, only one of them, I'm So Excited, has both. It is a return to light comedy by Pedro Almodovar and that could help it become the biggest limited release hit of the week. However, it is a foreign language film, which will limit its potential to expand significantly. More...
