Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An uptight TV producer (Katherine Heigl) finds love with her polar opposite, an earthy male chauvinist (Gerard Butler) who joins her program. The characters never come to life, and the film is crassly conceived as a raunchy girls-night-out tale. (M.B.)
The Ultimate Gift

In this saccharine-sweet Christian film, a trust-fund baby inherits 12 â??giftsâ? that help him determine the true meaning of happiness. (T.B.)

The Unborn
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A willowy college student (Odette Yustman) is haunted by the specter of a hollow-eyed little boy. This is a dull, plodding, exposition-crammed slog through a twilight of barely maintained tedium. (M.S.)
The Unforeseen
Released: 2007
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
This documentary chronicles the battle for the soul of Austin, Tex., in 1992, when environmentalists fought with developers over a local landmark called Barton Springs. The film delves into the conflicts that have come to define the American social identity: private property vs. community rights, growth vs. nature. (J.R.)
The Unforgiven
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Bigotry on the frontier. An exact reversal of the situation in John Ford's The Searchers (here, an Indian girl "adopted" by whites is the object of forays by her relatives), taken from a novel by the same writer, Alan LeMay.
The Uninvited
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Dullish malign visions and unsurprising spectral messages visit a young woman (Emily Browning) fresh out of the asylum. Blandly creepy remake of Kim Ji-woon's A Tale of Two Sisters. (K.J.)

The Valet
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In this mediocre French farce, a hapless valet (Gad Elmaleh) is asked to cover for an adulterous billionaire (Daniel Auteuil) by pretending to be involved with his supermodel mistress. The film has a couple of likable characters, one or two decent jokes, and a lot of missed opportunities. (T.B.)
The Verdict
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Francis Galvin was one a silk-stocking Boston attorney with a brilliant future. Now he is unkempt, alcoholic, an ambulance chaser, whose fall from grace is nearly complete. Into his lap drops an open and shut case: an accident suit against the Boston archdiocese on behalf of a women rendered comatose and brain-damaged after a botched operation at their hospital. But Galvin is not satisfied. Enraged and grief-stricken at the victim's condition and the hospital's callousness, he refuses to settle out of court, presses a huge damage suit. And now every hidden force of the American system of justice - corrupt judges, unscrupulous lawyers, spies and predators - mounts against him. His pursuit of justice becomes a desperate quest for salvation. A "problem" courtroom melodrama, much like Lumet's debut feature, Twelve Angry Men, The Verdict is scalding, relentless, furious - in my opinion a great film.

Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
The Vikings
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Furious, lusty Vikings bash, slash and maim each other in ancient times. Scripted by the great erotic humorist Clader Willingham, though he kept most of the laughs up his sleeve. (M.W.)

Now Playing? No

Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
In Francisco Vargas’ dramatic thriller, set amid the peasant uprisings of the 1970s, Angel Tavira plays a musician/farmer who comes up with his own plan for liberating a munitions supply hidden in a cornfield. The movie may be a little too arty for its subject, but Tavira gives his character just the right amount of stoic wisdom. (K.W.)
The Virgin Spring
Released: 1960
Rated:
Now Playing? No
14th Century Sweden: In a fairy tale atmosphere of glistening forests whose pockets of shadow seethe with hidden monsters, Bergman spins out a somber and frightening tale of rape, murder, and revenge. Based on the ancient ballad, "Tores dotteri Vange," and shot in a style fairly obviously inspired by Kurosawa's "Rashomon." One of Bergman's most violent and picturesque films - and also the first of his movies on which his great collaborator, Sven Nykvist, served as head cameramen.
The Virgin Suicides

Rated: R
Now Playing? No

The Visitor
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A hard-hearted economics prof (Richard Jenkins) reclaims his soul through his interaction with two illegal Muslim immigrants he finds squatting in his apartment. The film is a study in understatement, often communicating powerfully through the absence of words or actions. (M.B.)
The Voice of the Turtle (One for the Book)
Released: 1947
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Courtesy of John Van Druten's stage play, our 40th President tries his hand at sophisticated sex comedy. Never let it be said the fellow isn't game.
