This week’s Davis family adventure opens upon a gushing Cissy.

She’s telling a friend about a brilliant and successful male of her acquaintance. Uncle Bill assumes she’s talking about a boyfriend, but when she hangs up, she tells him that he was the subject of her conversation. She’s impressed by the huge, gaudy trophy he’s received for “best achievement in construction engineering.”

Bill is irritated to learn that Buffy and Jody are attending a Punch and Judy show with Mr. French. It’s Thursday, Mr. French’s day off.

Daniel's Film Reviews

This weekend, we’re seeing three new big releases: G.I. Joe: Retaliation, The Host and Tyler Perry’s Temptation: Confessions of a Marriage Counselor.

The initial buzz on the new G.I. Joe is that it’s a lot better than the first (on Rotten Tomatoes, 34% of critics liked it; while the second is just clinging onto a fresh status, standing at 60%).
