Don Jon, Baggage Claim, Rush, and Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2

New movies in theaters this weekend

Joseph Gordon Levitt makes his directorial debut with a comedy he also wrote. 

He plays a guy whose porn addiction clashes with Scarlett Johansson'sold-fashioned expectations from watching too many romantic Hollywood movies.

Julianne Moore is a sexy older woman who steers him away from his unrealistic porn fantasies, and Tony Danza plays his father. 

It's the first time he's worked with Tony since he did "Angels in the Outfield" when he was 12.

Paula Pattonplays a flight attendant who's so desperate for a date to her little sister's wedding, she agrees to stalk her ex-boyfriends through her job in Baggage Claim.

Jill Scott and Adam Brody track the movement of her exes, who include Derek Luke, Taye Diggs, Boris Kodjoe, and Djimon Hounsou.  Rapper Trey Songz shows up in a bubble bath scene . . . with Tia Mowry as the crazy chick trying to get in there with him.

"SNL's" Bill Hader returns for this animated sequel Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2, about a guy who invented a machine that turns water into food.  We thought he'd destroyed it at the end of the first movie, but it turns out the machine survived and now it's making food-animal hybrids.

Anna Faris is back as his dorky girlfriend, and Neil Patrick Harris is the voice of Steve the monkey.  Andy Samberg, Benjamin Bratt and Terry Crews are in it too.

Chris Hemsworth plays a Formula One racecar driver in a vicious rivalry with an Austrian opponent in the 1970s.  Olivia Wilde plays his wife, and it's directed by Ron Howard and based on a true story.

"Rush" opens nationwide today.  I'm excited.  I LOVE Canadian progressive rock.  My fingers are crossed it's a hit and they do a movie about Nickelback. Wait, what?
