In Theaters: Rio

And I completely spaced and forgot to write up a review of Rio. It's by the people that did Ice Age, and like that, it's an enjoyable movie, but in the end, relatively forgettable. Pretty standard fishbird-out-of-water storyline, nothing too deep. Decent animation, but not great, etc. Nothing wrong with it, per se, but nothing wrong with waiting until it's on cable, also. Bonus: Tracy Morgan voicing Tracy Morgan as a bulldog, which might as well be him playing his character from 30 Rock. And I don't mean that in a bad way.

I freely admit, though, I enjoyed the "Scrat's Continental Crack-Up" short before the movie.

New trailers:
* Dolphin Tale - Heartwarming, based on a true story, Morgan Freeman narrating, people overcoming adversity, etc.
* Prom - Brought to you by the Disney Channel, and it shows.
* Mr. Popper's Penguins - Jim Carrey and computer animated penguins. Z. was just reading the book like a week ago.
