A pair of KU guys can be found on the big screen this week. Writer-director Neil LaBute and actor Paul Rudd returned to Lawrence in April to debut their collaboration "The Shape of Things." Now this venomous tale of a mild-mannered college kid who undergoes a cosmetic and emotional transformation at the urging of a new girlfriend finally gets a proper release.
Also opening is "Hollywood Homicide," an uneven attempt to revamp the L.A. buddy-cop flick by making the characters just another arm of the Hollywood industry. Josh Hartnett and Harrison Ford star as detectives who are as concerned with their own side projects as solving crimes.
For those who like their low concepts really low, there's the prequel "Dumb and Dumberer" Despite the absence of Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels and the Farrelly Brothers, the gross-out comedy tries hard not to be boringer.
And finally, for those who can't watch enough of "The Rugrats" on cable, here comes "Rugrats Go Wild," in which the diaper dandies meet up with the Wild Thornberrys.
