Even worse, Dre's feelings make an enemy of the class bully, Cheng. In the land of kung fu, Dre knows only a little karate, and Cheng puts "the karate kid" on the floor with ease. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu.

    The Grown-Ups is full of an all-star cast of elite comedians, so that should be funny as hell. Also, I, too, express the same sentiments as my friend Vampire2000. Burlesque should be a good movie. I can't wait to see Aguilera's acting debut.


    • insertusernamehere • 6 years ago

      Looks to be a lame year for Sony. There's not one movie on this list I'm anticipating.


      • vampire2000 • 6 years ago

        I'm really looking forward to "Burlesque." Should be very good.


        • shinjiikari1984 • 6 years ago

          not a great year so far


          • ed-wood • 6 years ago

            I'll see most of them but there are a couple that look like complete crap.


            • soylentgreen • 6 years ago

              Everything sounds like sh*t except for "The Green Hornet". That has some potential.


              • taat • 6 years ago

                Most of the movies look good but not as strong a line-up as last year.


                • chad-vital • 6 years ago

                  Other Guys, Grown Ups, ftw. The Bounty Hunter sounds like Mr. & Mrs. Smith.


                  • zanyzap • 6 years ago

                    The Green Hornet and The Other Guys are a must-see in my book. I'll probably catch Grown Ups for Sandler, not for the notion that it will be a good movie.

                    Dear John is a definite date-movie, not because I'm a sweet, loving gentlemen, but because I have a soft spot, call it a guilty pleasure, for cheesy romantic-dramas. Hey, I'm honest {...and straight. Shut up!} ;)


                    • 2movieguys • 6 years ago

                      Death at a Funeral is a 2007 British black comedy film directed by Frank Oz.

                      In 2009, a Bollywood remake of the film, entitled Daddy Cool, was released starring Sunil Shetty, Aashish Chaudhary and Rajpal Yadav.

                      HOW MANY MORE ...!??!?!


                      • 2movieguys • 6 years ago

                        "Salt" looks interesting!!


                        • 2movieguys • 6 years ago

                          Legion ...most Yes!!

                          "Death At A Funeral" ...skip it another stupid ass remake.....I saw the trailer in a room full of people and not 1 person ...NOT ONE PERSON LAUGHED!!!


                          • srb • 6 years ago

                            Legion, Death At A Funeral, Takers looks OK. The Bounty Hunter Other Guys looks like Mr. & Mrs. Smith and The Man respectively. The Karate Kid and Salt should be good.

                            Please notice that the Green Hornet just has the logo, NOT a still from the movie itself as the other movies have. Now WHY is that? Because the hideous slob Seth Rogen has completely miscast himself as the lead and he does NOT look good whether he is in or out of costume! Sony's Green Hornet will be a beat by Disney's TRON LEGACY!!!


                            • narrator • 6 years ago

                              Lol Punisher.

                              Agreed Diaigma this is a pretty sh*tty list, however, Green Hornet and The Other Guys interests me.


                              • cerealkiller • 6 years ago

                                I like how it says at the bottom that Green Hornet is slated for a summer release but just above it, it says DECEMBER 22nd. Just thought that was kinda funny.


                                • ejk1 • 6 years ago

                                  This lineup is pretty sad. Paul Bettany is playing an angel in one movie, and a priest in another. Then we have remakes of The Karate Kid and Single White Female, another lame buddy-cop movie, and another Sandler suckfest. To top it off, we get an out of shape Green Hornet, Christina Aguilera in a movie that sounds like a cross between Glitter, Honey, and Coyote Ugly(all of which suck, by the way), and finally a movie about Facebook(because we really need one). The only movie here worth anything to me is Salt, but that's only because I saw a trailer for it already and Jolie looked really good and kicked a lot of ass in it.


                                  • dexterhaven • 6 years ago

                                    Looking forward to The Bounty Hunter. Aniston and Butler look like they will rock!


                                    • timmy • 6 years ago

                                      Legion is the only one i think worth a watch


                                      • cripple • 6 years ago

                                        This is a pretty crap lineup. I am only interested in Green Hornet, The other guys, and maybe legion and priest.


                                        • diaigma • 6 years ago

                                          This is the worst 2010 studio lineup yet. None of these would interest me :P
