Along Came Polly (Riskni to s Polly) - Romantic comedy by John Hamburg.

The second directorial effort from the screenwriter responsible for the Ben Stiller vehicles Zoolander and Meet the Parents.
In this film Stiller plays Reuben, a (surprise!) neurotic, uptight newlywed whose wife (Debra Messing) has left him for a French scuba instructor (Hank Azaria). Fortunately, the adventurous Polly (Jennifer Aniston) comes along to free him. Also starring the ubiquitous Philip Seymour Hoffman and Alec Baldwin.

Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (Scooby-Doo 2: Príšery vypustené) - Comedy/Mystery by Raja Gosnell. The justly beloved cartoon series about an excitable mystery-solving dog and his four human companions returns to the silver screen in live-action/animated form. The first film provoked wildly differing responses (largely negative) and this one has been received even less enthusiastically. Fortunately, one can be sure that this film will not take itself too seriously (or at all, for that matter).


Mambo Italiano - Comedy drama by Émile Gaudrealt. In the wake of recently successful ethnic romantic comedies (Monsoon Wedding, Bend it Like Beckham, and - last and most certainly least - My Big Fat Greek Wedding) comes this tale of Italian immigrants in Montreal. Angelo (Luke Kirby) desperately wants to move out of his parents' house. But the traditional Italian couple (Paul Sorvino and Ginette Reno) are appalled by the idea of one of their own leaving home before getting married. The situation is slightly more complicated than the parents realise, however: The still closeted Angelo wants to move in with his boyfriend.


Other movies playing


Paycheck (Výplata) - Sci-fi/Thriller by John Woo. Hong Kong genius turned fairly boring Hollywood filmmaker Woo adapts a short story by cult novelist Philip K Dick, whose work has already been adapted for the screen as Ridley Scott's Blade Runner and Steven Spielberg's Minority Report. The good news: Uma Thurman. The bad news: Ben Affleck.
