Here Comes The Boom . .

(Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Henry Winkler) A disillusioned schoolteacher (James) takes up mixed martial arts to raise money to save his school’s music program. It has some funny moments, but it’s too predictable and silly to be worth seeing. Rated PG.

Taken 2 . .

(Liam Neeson, Rade Serbedzija, Famke Janssen) While travelling in Istanbul, ex-CIA Bryan Mills (Neeson) and his wife (Janssen) are kidnapped, leaving their daughter (Maggie Grace) to save them. The villains are inexplicably sympathetic, and none of the action is impressive. Rated PG-13.

Frankenweenie . . .

(Voices of Charlie Tahan, Winona Ryder, Martin Landau) After young Victor Frankenstein (Tahan) brings his dead dog back to life, his rivals do the same with their own animals, with disastrous results. This is a stop-motion, animated homage to classic monster movies, but its real appeal is that it works for young kids older ones who appreciate oldschool horror. Rated PG. ¦
