  • Madea's Big Happy Family (PG-13)

    Another bizarre outing for Tyler Perry's foul-mouthed, two-fisted, 70-something drag matriarch, who solves various family problems with homey advice, threats of violence, and motor-mouthed profanity. more...
  • Magic Mike (R)

    Steven Soderbergh seems to have modeled this crowd-pleasing tale about male strippers in Tampa on such gritty 1970s comedies as Bob Rafelson's Stay Hungry and Michael Ritchie's The Bad News Bears, whose broad comedy was undercut by an unsentimental view of economic recession. more...
  • A Man Called Ove
  • A Man Called Ove (PG-13)

  • Men, Women & Children (R)

    Jason Reitman's latest Oscar bait reaches for the zeitgeist like no Hollywood movie since American Beauty (1999), and you have to give him credit for thinking big even though he drives the theme into your skull with a ball-peen hammer. more...
  • Menashe
  • Menashe (PG)

    This muted drama about New York City's Hasidic Jewish community is the narrative-feature debut for documentary maker Joshua Z. Weinstein; consequently the film often feels like a direct-cinema documentary, immersing viewers in the environment through fly-on-the-wall camerawork and naturalistic performances. more...
  • Mia Madre
  • Mia Madre

    Writer-director Nanni Moretti (The Son's Room) drew on his own life experience for this study of an Italian filmmaker (Margherita Buy) trying to shoot a movie while, at home, her mother is slowly dying. more...
