Code Name: The Cleaner (PG-13)

Director: Les Mayfield. With Cedric the Entertainer, Lucy Liu. (91 min.)

After waking up in a strange hotel room with total amnesia, Jake Rodgers (Cedric the Entertainer) wonders who he is and why a murdered FBI agent is lying next to him. Is he an agent himself, or just a building custodian with a big secret? Whoever he is, everyone is after him. This takeoff on 'The Bourne Identity' and most Hitchcock movies, gives Cedric some funny lines and the opportunity to play against type. But if you try to follow the plot, you'll be as confused as Jake is. Grade: C
– M.K. Terrell

Sex/Nudity: 8. Violence: 14. Profanity: 54, mostly milder expressions. Drugs/Alcohol/Tobacco: none.

Happily N'Ever After (PG)

Director: Paul J. Bolger. With Sarah Michelle Gellar, Sigourney Weaver. (75 min.)

Happy endings are history when Cinderella's stepmother, Frieda, takes over the castle. Not content to ruin Cinderella's life, Frieda causes Rapunzel to fall from her tower and Sleeping Beauty's prince to doze off instead of waking her. On the other hand, Cinderella impresses Snow White's dwarfs with a military talent lacking in their former tenant. The rich detail we've come to expect in computer animation is largely absent, suggesting that the filmmakers intended a direct-to-video release for this cleverly written parody. Grade: C+
– M.K.T

Sex/Nudity: 3 instances of mild innuendo. Violence: 12. Profanity: 2 mild expressions. Drugs/Alcohol/Tobacco: 2 scenes of incidental drinking.

Still in Release
The Dead Girl (R)
