This week’s new movie releases, including The Book of Henry and All Eyez On Me, sound oddly familiar
Matthew Lickona 3 p.m., June 16
A young man grieving over the loss of his mother (and suffering from plot-convenient Tourette’s syndrome), a feisty anorexic gal, and a Bach-obsessed nerd with OCD check out of rehab for a spot of R and R. Stop me if you’ve heard this one. Instead of establishing a deep bond of sympathy between the three, all director Ralf Huettner can muster is another shameless, embarrassing look at mental illness that had me laughing (for all the wrong reasons) throughout. A feel-good “retard” road picture that would play best on the bottom half of a double-bill with Gigli. With Florian David Fitz, Karoline Herfurth, and Johannes Allmayer. 2011.
