*Friends with Money (R)
Friends with Money leaves no unpleasantry unturned. If money doesn't buy happiness, living paycheck to paycheck doesn't either. And dating may be hell, but as for the long-term companionship, well, there's a reason why the divorce rate is so high. Nothing's tidied up by film's end, but in a film about everyday trials, open-endedness is more realistic than problematic. Tricia Olszewski

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (PG)
If the creators of Ice Age 2 devoted even half as much energy and invention to the main story as they did to the acorn-obsessed rodent Scrat, we'd be talking about a classic for the ages instead of a lot of dead air between moments of brilliance. Scott Renshaw

Chapel Hills 15

*Thank You for Smoking (R)
That Aaron Eckhart has only now, after 14 years of largely unmemorable roles, found his star vehicle, is the best reason to go see Thank You for Smoking, a smart little satire that jabs at the absurd practices of lobbying in American policy-making. Thank You for Smoking is a hopeful sign that smart comedies haven't been completely replaced by dumb ones. Kathryn Eastburn

Kimball's Twin Peak

*United 93 (R)
I can't tell you if writer/director Paul Greengrass got it right as a history lesson. And I can't conceive of how it might be perceived by those whose loved ones are portrayed struggling and dying in an unimaginable situation. All I can say is that United 93 delivers an experience so intense and immediate that I literally felt myself sweating as events unfolded, a knot of anxiety churning in my stomach. Scott Renshaw

Chapel Hills 15, Cinemark 16, Tinseltown

The Wild (G)
The creative apocalypse may be upon us now, for I have never seen a film so blatantly like another as The Wild is like last year's Madagascar. MaryAnn Johanson

Cinemark 16, Tinseltown
