The Spotlight

Double team* - Jean-Claude Van Damme takes on the Russian mafia in this formula action flick. If you like the genre, then it delivers - stunts get riskier and the kicks more devastating, while the plot remains simple (kill the bad guys). Watch out for a surprise appearance by the NBA's most famous cross-dresser. (Nebezpečny Tandem).

Alaska (Dubbed in Czech) - Set in the majestic Alaskan landscape, the wild animals from bears to whales and seals steal the show. Two teenage kids rescue their father with the help from a lost polar bear. Even the most basic Slovak will allow you to follow the simple plot. Go if you miss the great outdoors. (Aljaška)

Liar liar* - Wackey Jim Carrey's latest flick shows him at his outrageous best. Carrey plays a lawyer who lies his way to victory and money but neglects his son who wishes that his father would always tell the truth. After that, Carrey can't stop telling the truth even if it's best he keeps his mouth shut. (Klamár, Klamár)

French kiss* - Meg Ryan tries to regain the humor that won her accolades in "When Harry Met Sally" by playing an American woman in Paris trying to win back her love. The movie has its moments but Ryan whines way too much. Throw in a bizarre French accent from Kevin Kline and sentimental sap - stay home. (Francúzky bozk).

Relic* - A series of brutal murders in Chicago's natural science museum remain unexplained. Penelope Ann Miller as a biologist and Tom Sizemore as a young policeman team up to solve the mystery. What they find is a terrifying mutant that has enslaved its victims below the museum. A science fiction thriller based on the Douglas Preston novel. (Relic).

Swan princess* - Enter a world of fantasy - mysterious castles, talking animals, evil wizards and good witches - in this old fashioned fairy-tale where good always wins. A perfect movie for children and enough visual effects to keep adults entertained. (Labutia Princezná)
