Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous(Miss Špeciálny Agent 2: Krásna a nebezpečná) - Comedy by John Pasquin. Sandra Bullock returns as Gracie Hart, an undercover FBI agent/beauty pageant contestant. After the beauty contest's winner (Heather Burns) and master of ceremonies (William Shatner) are kidnapped, Gracie teams up with a particularly tough agent (Regina King) to try and save them.
Other movies playing
Hitch (Hitch: Liek pre moderného muža) - Romantic comedy by Andy Tennant. Will Smith's
first romantic comedy is not particularly fresh or clever; in fact, it plays it quite safe by trying to please as many
different audiences as possible. But at times it's nearly as charming as its star, who receives strong help from Eva Mendes and Kevin James. Despite some failed comedic scenes and a weak ending, Hitch is an enjoyable piece of fluff.
The Ring 2 (Kruh 2) - Horror by Hideo Nakata. Gore Verbinski's The Ring was easily one of
the most successful horror movies of recent years, so of course there would be a sequel. This time out Hideo Nakata, the director of the original Japanese series that inspired the Hollywood remake, takes the reins from Verbinski (who has since gone on to make Pirates of the Caribbean). Naomi Watts returns as Rachel, who hopes she and her son can move past the horror of the first movie by moving to a small town in Oregon. But after hearing about a grisly murder involving a mysterious videotape, Rachel begins to worry that she and her son have not escaped after all. So, naturally, she investigates.

The Pacifier(Cumlikátor) - Comedy by Adam Shankman. Because Arnold Schwarzenegger was too busy governing California to make Kindergarten Cop 2, Disney opted for the next best thing: Vin Diesel as a tough military man assigned to babysit four children. Well, sort of: Diesel plays Shane Wolf, a former Navy SEAL who must protect a top-secret defence project, which just happens to be in a home with four wacky kids.
Constantine - Francis Lawrence. Remember The Matrix? Well, the creators of Constantine sure
do - and they're hoping that you do too. And that you'll want more of it, or at least more of Keanu Reeves as a

mystical visionary dressed in black. He plays the titular character, a man who has the misfortune of seeing all the spirits that surround us. After being saved from suicide, Constantine must act as a guardian for those passing between Paradise and Hell. While doing so he discovers that he and a police detective (Rachel Weisz) must save the world from evil. Tilda Swinton, Peter Stormare, and Gavin Rossdale (aka Mr Gwen Stefani) also star.
