    Just Go with It

    Comic relief during the "dead zone."

    Although Jennifer Aniston and Adam Sandler are not the caliber of Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant, they are a well-matched comedic couple in Just Go with It. When they're not engaged in a typical rom-com moment that makes them a loving couple (sorry about the spoiler, but you knew it anyway), they are scrappy and witty, making me almost believe they don't love each other.

    The Eagle

    Roman Bromantic

    In 140 A.D., how could there be "bromance" without Seth Rogen or Steve Carell? Well, Channing Tatum and Jamie Bell do the honors, albeit without the dry humor, as Roman centurion Marcus Aquila and his slave, Esca, respectively. They are traveling north of Hadrian's Wall to find the gold eagle emblem lost by Marcus's dad along with 5000 Roman soldiers 20 years ago.
