Red Riding Hood Box Art

Red Riding Hood Amanda Seyfried stars in director Catherine Hardwicke's gothic re-telling of the Red Riding Hood tale. In a medieval village a beautiful young girl falls for an orphaned woodcutter, much to her family's displeasure. When her sister is killed by the werewolf that prowls the dark forest surrounding their village, the people call on a famed werewolf hunter to help them kill the wolf. As the death toll rises with each moon and panic grips the town, the girl discovers that she has a unique connection to the beast -- one that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect... and bait.

Who will Valerie choose -- Henry or Peter? Help her decide. Vote for your favorite in the Red Riding Hood Love Triangle.

Hall Pass Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis star as Rick and Fred, best friends who have a lot in common, including the fact that they have each been married for many years. But when the two men begin to show signs of restlessness at home, their wives take a bold approach to revitalizing their marriages: granting them a "hall pass," one week of freedom to do whatever they want... no questions asked. At first, it sounds like a dream come true for Rick and Fred. But it isn't long before they discover that their expectations of the single life -- and themselves -- are completely, and hilariously, out of sync with reality.
