Weekend Preview – November 1, 2013

Lots of very different options for you to choose from should you go to the theater this weekend.  Here’s the part of the show where I tell you about each one in one sentence and then let you know if you should see it or not.

Ender's Game PosterEnder’s Game

Last Vegas PosterLast Vegas

A bunch of old guys throw a wild bachelor party for last of the gang to get married, and learn a lot about fun, friendship, and love along the way.
