With everything you have to do to get ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow, the last thing you need is someone at your feet going… “Mom! Mom! Mom!… Dad! Dad! Dad!
Why not send them to the movies!
#1.) “The Muppets“ (PG)
Jason Segel and Amy Adams help Kermit reunite the Muppets to raise money and keep the old Muppet Theater from being torn down by an oil tycoon.
Neil Patrick Harris, Jack Black, Sarah Silverman, Selena Gomez, Whoopi Goldberg, Rashida Jones, John Krasinski, “Big Bang Theory’s” Jim Parsons, Zach Galifianikis, and Ken Jeong all have cameos.
#2.) “Hugo“ (PG)
An orphan living in the walls of a Paris train station meets a girl with a heart-shaped key, and it unlocks an invention his father gave him. It’s Martin Scorcese’s first 3D film, and it’s based on the children’s book “The Invention of Hugo Cabret”.
Hugo’s played by a 14-year-old named Asa Butterfield, and Isabelle is Chloe Grace Moretz, who was Hit Girl in the movie “Kick Ass”. The adult cast includes Ben Kingsley, Sacha Baron Cohen, Christopher Lee, and Jude Law as Hugo’s dad.
#3.) “Arthur Christmas“ (PG)
A computer-animated movie about Santa’s two sons. Hugh Laurie is Steve, the son running Santa’s new high-tech operation who’ll become the next Santa, and James McAvoy is his younger brother Arthur, a clumsy kid working in the mail room.
But when Steve screws up and misses one of the presents, Arthur uses their grandfather’s old wooden sleigh to try to deliver it before the sun comes up.
