The Fighting Temptations:
Cuba Gooding Jr stars as Darrin Hill, a slick-talking advertising exec who returns to his hometown in Georgia to claim the inheritance his aunt left him. But before he can collect the money, he must fulfill his aunt's final wish - to create a local choir and lead them to the annual 'Gospel Explosion' competition. Beyonce Knowles co-stars as a jazz singer with a heavenly voice...
The First Wives Club:
Join the club - The First Wives Club, the good-time, battle-of-the-sexes satire sparked by snappy one-liners. Great physical-comedy gags and three unforgettable stars on top form. Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton portray mid-life Manhattanites who have more than a longtime friendship in common. After years of helping their hubbies climb the ladder of success, each has been dumped for a newer, curvier model. But the trio is determined to turn their pain into gain. They come up with a cleverly devious plan to hit their exes where it really hurts - in the wallet! Sit back and watch as the sparks fly as the wives get mad, get even and get it all. Justice has seldom been so sweet. Or so much fun!
Jerry Welbach is given two ultimatums. His mob boss wants him to travel to Mexico to get a priceless antique pistol called "The Mexican" or he will suffer the consequences. The other ultimatum comes from his girlfriend Samantha, who wants him to end his association with the mob. Jerry figures that being alive, although in trouble with his girlfriend is the better alternative so he heads south of the border. Finding the pistol is easy but getting it home is a whole other matter. The pistol supposedly carries a curse - a curse Jerry is given every reason to believe, especially when Samantha is held hostage by the gay hit man Leroy to ensure the safe return of the pistol.
