Here’s a quick look at what’s showing--what to run out and see, and which ones to avoid: 

Wish I Was Here

Zach Braff stars as a father and struggling actor, who--when his ailing father (Mandy Patankin) can no longer afford to help--is forced to homeschool his two children.

Begin Again

Keira Knightley stars as a heartbroken musician starting over in New York City. When she meets a down-on-his-luck record exec (Mark Ruffalo), everything changes. This is the movie to see.

And So It Goes

In the long line of second-chance rom-coms like As Good As It Gets and It’s Complicated comes And So It Goes. Michael Douglas stars as a cantankerous realtor who recruits his neighbor (Diane Keaton) to help him babysit his grandson.

Lucy

Scarlett Johansson stars as an exceptionally skilled woman who turns on her captors and exacts her revenge. Think La Femme Nikita or Kill Bill. This one could go either way.

Sex Tape

Cameron Diaz and Jason Segel star as a couple who accidentally uploads their for-their-eyes-only video to the Internet. Then, in an absurd 90 minutes of stupidity, try to do damage control. (It’s a 5.)

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

In the second installment of the franchise reboot, Jason Clarke and Gary Oldman head up the cast as mankind tries to combat the growing army of genetically evolved apes. It’s remarkably human. (It's a 7.) 

Tammy

Melissa McCarthy stars as a down-on-her-luck fast-food worker who goes on an impromptu road trip with her grandmother (Susan Sarandon). Everything about this movie is atrocious. (It’s a 3.)

Chef

Jon Favreau stars as a demanding chef, who, in a last ditch effort to regain his mojo, buys a food truck and hits the road. It takes far too long to get going, but once it does, it’s quite charming. (It’s a 6.)
