If you live on the east coast, you should probably take advantage of the spring-like weather today. Really, it’s the only day you’re getting until May.

If you live on the west coast, hit the cineplex and stay out of this unseasonably chilly weather (it’s still better than New York, but still cold for LA). And for Mid-westerners, it seems you’re all still buried in snow. You need a movie more than anyone!!

Check out what’s playing near you this weekend.

Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son – Rated PG-13

FBI Agent Malcolm Turner and his 17-year-old stepson Trent go undercover at an all-girls’ school for the arts, after Trent witnesses a murder. They pose, respectively, as Big Momma and Charmaine, in order to find evidence incriminating the murderer before he finds them.

I Am Number Four – Rated PG-13

An extraordinary young man, John Smith, is a fugitive on the run from ruthless enemies sent to destroy him. Changing his identity, moving from town to town with his guardian Henri, John is always the new kid with no ties to his past.
