Genre:  Action/ Adventure

Starring:  Nicholas Cage, Steve Buscemi, Will Arnett, Penelope Cruz

Tapped for the G-Force are guinea pigs Darwin (voice of SAM ROCKWELL), the squad leader determined to succeed at all costs; Blaster (voice of TRACY MORGAN), an outrageous weapons expert with tons of attitude and a love for all things extreme; and Juarez (voice of PENELOPE CRUZ), a sexy martial arts pro; plus the literal fly-on-the-wall reconnaissance expert, Mooch, and a star-nosed mole, Speckles (voice of NICOLAS CAGE), the computer and information specialist. –© Walt Disney Pictures

Kate says: 1 star     My 9 year old son says: 3 stars

Coffee Break readers owe me big-time for this one.  I saw this one so you won’t have to.  Seriously, if your kids want to see this movie, see if you can pawn them off on some unsuspecting friend who mentions she’s taking her kids and ask if yours can tag along.  Generally, I’m very lenient in my  reviews of movies which are obviously intended for children.  My son giggled and laughed his way through the movie.  This, however, was almost unbearable for me.  The best part comes when the credits start to roll and the guinea pigs break dance…oh and the fact that the movie is over too. Consider yourself warned.

Ebert:  2 1/2 stars (What?)

Reelviews:  2 stars

Enjoy your Coffee Break!
