FILM: New in Theaters - 2/20/09 & AMC Oscar Freebie

If you're a fan of Tyler Perry's antics and men in drag, then go watch Madea Goes to Jail.

If you like dumb teen comedies with plenty of T&A, cute boys, and familiar C-list actors (like 90210's Naomi), then you might enjoy Fired Up! It's the story of two jocks (Eric Christian Olsen from Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd and Nicholas D'Agosto from "Heroes") who are so girl-hungry, they ditch football training for cheerleading camp. Naturally, they assume it'll be easy, until they're introduced to the cutthroat cattiness of cheerleading competitions. If it were properly written, the film could've been an examination of female relationships through a male perspective, but it's just a teen comedy, so expect sight gags, unrealistic romantic situations, and gay jokes.

If you're gearing up for this Sunday's Oscar night and you're interested in seeing all 5 Best Picture nominees, you can get an all-day pass at select AMC Theaters Saturday Feb. 21st for $30 (complete with unlimited free refills of a large popcorn). Check out the schedule:
– 10:30 a.m.
The Reader – 1:05 p.m.
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - 3:45 p.m.
Slumdog Millionaire - 7:15 p.m.
Frost/Nixon – 9:45 p.m.
