The Fighter - There are a lot of things out there that will make people fight the odds no matter what. Based on a true story, “Irish Micky” Ward (Mark Wahlberg) was just the guy to do that. His brother Dicky (Christian Bale) was always there for him and was a fighter in his own right. The wrong choices and drugs took Dicky’s life in another direction. Micky decided to take control but wanted his brother in his corner. The only way he could do that was to go all the way to the top with Dicky in his corner and having the determination of a champion isn’t altogether bad either. Find out how well Dicky and Micky did in this terrific story. Bale and co star Melissa Leo took home Best Supporting Actor and Actress for their performances in the movie. Also, Bale returns with Anne Hathaway for “The Dark Knight Rises” in theaters Next Summer.
The Switch - People will often do whatever it takes to have a family. Wally (Jason Bateman) and Cassie (Jennifer Aniston) have been best friends for a long time. Wally would like to take their relationship to the next step but Cassie doesn’t really see him as anything other than a friend. Cassie starts to feel the ticking of her biological clock and wants to have a baby. Some friends decide to throw her a party and Cassie tells Wally that she thinks she has found the perfect donor. This doesn’t sit well with him. While drunk, Wally accidentally replaces his own sample for Cassie’s donors’. Years later, Cassie has a son Sebastian (Thomas Robinson) and moves back home. She touches base with her friends including Wally and he notices that Sebastian looks a lot like him. He gets to be good friends with Sebastian and isn’t sure what to do next. Will Wally tell Cassie that he’s the Father and will this be their way to get together? Aniston can be seen with Adam Sandler in “Just Go With It” in theaters now and Bateman will next be seen chasing an alien named “Paul” coming soon to theaters.
