  • The Children of Huang Shi Review
    By:

    So much for just reporting the news. This conventionally told but nonetheless heartfelt historical drama recounts the true-life Herculean efforts of a British journalist to save a school of Chinese orphans during the Second Sino-Japanese War.

    In addition to playing huge with family audiences on Saturday, there was a surge in teen business on Saturday night, as Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull (Paramount) surged 19 percent. That improves Crystal Skull's Saturday take to an estimated $38.69.

  • Curious George Review
    By:

    Curious George certainly caters to the six and under set. But take comfort in knowing that bolstered by rich animation, comic antics and a pop soundtrack, Curious George is an adorable and heartening adaptation that does the classic children’s tale justice.
