Zac Effron and Owen Wilson both have new movies in theaters this weekend.
No Escape – R
Owen Wilson tries to escape with his family from a Southeast Asian country where foreigners are suddenly being executed on sight. Lake Bell is his wife, and Pierce Brosnan protects them while they try to reach the American embassy.
Critics Consensus from Rotten Tomatoes: No Escape’s talented cast and taut B-movie thrills are unfortunately offset by its one-dimensional characters and uncomfortably retrograde worldview.
We Are your Friends – R
Zac Efron plays a party promoter who really wants to be a club DJ. Wes Bentley is an established DJ he impresses enough to mentor him, but then Zac falls for his girlfriend, Emily Ratajkowski
Critics Consensus From Rotten Tomtaotes: We Are Your Friends boasts magnetic stars and glimmers of insight, but they’re lost in a clichéd coming-of-age story as programmed as the soundtrack’s beats.
