The Movies Curaçao
462-2209

Daily: 17:45 20:00 22:15

Sat. & Sun. Matinee: 13:15 15:30




Genre: Comedy/Romantic.

Running Time: 1hr 34min.

Synopsis: Over the years there have been many romantic comedies that tried to subvert their own genre - from When Harry Met Sally to No Strings Attached. Despite pages upon pages of wry commentary and gentle mocking of romance tropes, however, even the most meta-humorous of these romcoms have a tendency to snap back into formula by the time they reach their closing chapter. Men and women can be just friends, and they can be just friends with benefits, but not as far as Hollywood is concerned.

The number of well-known romcoms where the guy doesn't get the girl (or vice versa) can probably be counted on the fingers of one hand, and based on the trailer it doesn't look like Playing it Cool (formerly titled A Many Splintered Thing), a new romcom starring Chris Evans and Michelle Monaghan, will be pushing the genre onto a second-hand. Evans plays a screenwriter who is trying to write a romance movie (no, really) but is hampered by the fact that he doesn't believe in love.

That changes when Evans' character meets a woman (Monaghan) whom he instantly falls for, but discovers that she's already attached to a handsome fiancé (Ioan Gruffudd). Aided by a circle of friends with different perspectives on the subject of love (Anthony Mackie, Aubrey Plaza, Luke Wilson and Topher Grace), Evans' character attempts to stay just friends, but finds himself wanting more.

Starring: Chris Evans, Michelle Monaghan and Luke Wilson.

Dir: Justin Reardon.

Rated: R.

But there was much more to him than his skill as a sharpshooter. U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle is sent to Iraq with only one mission: to protect his brothers-in-arms. His pinpoint accuracy saves countless lives on the battlefield and, as stories of his courageous exploits spread, he earns the nickname "Legend." However, his reputation is also growing behind enemy lines, putting a price on his head and making him a prime target of insurgents. He is also facing a different kind of battle on the home front: striving to be a good husband and father from halfway around the world. Despite the danger, as well as the toll on his family at home, Chris serves through four harrowing tours of duty in Iraq, personifying the SEAL creed to "leave no man behind." But upon returning to his wife, Taya Renae Kyle (Sienna Miller), and kids, Chris finds that it is the war he can't leave behind.
