March 30-April 6
March 30: "Final Destination 3" (R) Death works overtime in this horror series. In the third ridiculous installment, death targets teenagers who survived an amusement park ride accident. The movie is no more than a succession of elaborately conceived and very gruesome events, including deadly encounters with fireworks, weightlifting equipment, the tools in a home improvement store, and a tanning salon machine. Grade: C (82 min.)
March 31-April 1: "The Pink Panther" (PG) Steve Martin studiously achieves the comic pratfalls and funny accents that the late Peter Sellers spontaneously produced, and this remake similarly has a mechanical feel to it. Although some of the gags work better than others, there generally is enough silly business to entertain kids looking for a giggle. Grade: B- (92 min.)
April 2: "Curious George" (G) The simple animation, non-ironic story and gentle tone make this animated movie seem old-fashioned in today's noisier and hipper cinematic culture. That's reason enough for parents to consider taking very small children to see the adventures of a good-natured little monkey. Grade: C+ (86 min.)
April 5-6: "Firewall" (PG-13) Harrison Ford plays a Seattle bank security official whose wife (Virginia Madsen) and two children are taken hostage by ruthless robbers. Anybody familiar with Ford's career knows you do not want to make this dad angry. This formulaic thriller hits every familiar emotional button, but has enough brusque energy to see it through. Grade: B- (105 min.)
