This weekend, you’ll have your choice between a goofy comedy, watching things blow up, and a tale about the joys and perils of new parenthood. Sacha Baron Cohen's movie opened on Wednesday to lukewarm ticket sales. My pick for the weekend is Liam Neeson's movie Battleship. I think the only thing that will help What to Expect When You're Expecting is Chris Rock.

THE DICTATOR is a comedy starring Sacha Baron Cohen, Anna Faris, Ben Kingsley, John C. Reilly, J.B. Smoove, B.J. Novak. A dictator risks his life to ensure that democracy never comes to the country he so lovingly oppressed.

BATTLESHIP is an action movie starring Liam Neeson, Taylor Kitsch, Brooklyn Decker, Alexander Skarsgard, Rihanna, Jesse Plemons, Peter MacNicol. Based on the classic board game, a battleship fights a fleet in an adventure that unfolds across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force.

WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOU'RE EXPECTING is a romantic comedy starring Jennifer Lopez, Chris Rock, Elizabeth Banks, Dennis Quaid, Brooklyn Decker, Anna Kendrick, Cameron Diaz, Chace Crawford, Megan Mullally. Couples weather the first pains of parenthood in the adaptation of the best-selling self-help book of the same name.
