"Adam" PG-13

Ann says that this film is honest, but almost too much so. She and Les like the offbeat and upbeat tone at points, but it's a little bit too much overall.

"Argo" R

Ann says the movie succeeds as good "popcorn entertainment," but it is not very true to the real life happenings and is not an altogether exceptional film.
Ann and Les think this film is great for young girls, but it's a little heavy-handed with the morals and will likely seem cheesy for adults.
