Labor Day Weekend: the last hurrah of summer and white clothing. As you bask in the relief of the mini vacation it offers, sipping your final mint julep of the season, look back on a time when that cold cocktail would have been spiked with moonshine or, worse, virgin. While you lie out in the fading sunshine, appreciate the fact that you don’t live in a post-apocalyptic desert where genocidal maniacs reign supreme. Or you could just face the cold harshness of the approaching winter head on with the spate of child-victim horror flicks. Yikes. And now, the weekend showings, for all you working stiffs out there.

"For a Good Time, Call..." could be alternately titled "What People Will Do for an Apartment in New York." And the answer is pretty much anything, whether that be running a phone sex business or living with someone you hate for spilling pee on you. Note that in the world of "For a Good Time, Call..." "anything" does not include looking for a place in (gasp!) Brooklyn.

If you think that "The Five-Year Engagement" and this weekend's tedious "That's My Boy" is all the comedy summer has to offer in 2012, there's one more film that hopes to make you laugh before the season is over.

After Bradley Cooper’s “Limitless” was a surprise box office hit this spring, he's lined up a string of projects including David O. Russell’s “The Silver Linings Playbook,” Derek Cianfrance’s “The Place Beyond the Pines,” and “The Words,” which is premiering at Sundance. The early pics look very intriguing, featuring a gaunt, barely recognizable Jeremy Irons. The cast also includes Zoe Saldana, Olivia Wilde, Ben Barnes, Nora Arnezeder and Dennis Quaid. "The Words" is the festival’s closing night film, which could definitely be viewed as a vote of confidence. The Black List script follows a writer (Cooper) who, at the peak of his literary success, discovers the price he must pay for stealing another man’s work. With a pretty crack cast and decent concept, this one sounds promising.
