Movies out this weekend

SNL stars can be seen in a few movies that go on release this weekend.

THE ROCKER: Starring Rainn Wilson, The Rocker tells the story of an aging rocker who joins his nephew's band. Not getting the best reviews, but it stars SNL'ers Fred Armisen and Jason Sudeikis (who one reviewer described as stealing the movie).
HAMLET 2: Starring Steve Coogan, Hamlet 2 follows a high school drama teacher who produces a politically incorrect sequel to the Shakespeare classic Hamlet. While this has quite a low rating on iMDB (5.5/10), it has been getting good reviews and the Wall Street Journal noted that Amy Poehler makes a terrific appearance as a lawyer. This one's out on limited release this weekened.
