5 movies to skip this weekend at the theaters
You're better off buying a concert ticket or staying home and watching an old favorite.
Halloween's over, but there's much to do this weekend in Dallas-Fort Worth. Don't waste your time or money on these flicks:
Free Birds -- It’s a turkey, all right. This cute idea about time-traveling turkeys is undercooked, with a feeble script and flat gags.
Last Vegas -- This sentimental star-packed trip to Vegas is a less raunchy Hangover with old guys.
Man of Tai Chi -- This stylish martial-arts action movie from star and director Keanu Reeves is formulaic but packed with well-staged fights.
Capital -- This financial-world thriller shows that Wall Street’s ethics can be exported to France but fails to land its punches.
Jackass Presents: Bad Grandpa -- This semi-scripted, gag-driven comedy starring Johnny Knoxville sags at feature-film length.
