The movies competing for your attention the weekend of Oct. 24 are:

High School Musical 3: Senior Year
The phenomenally successful High School Musical franchise makes the leap onto the big screen with the third installment, High School Musical 3: Senior Year. As the name implies, this time out the students at East High are dealing with impending changes in their lives as Graduation nears. Troy (Zac Efron) wins another basketball championship with his best friend and teammate Chad (Corbin Bleu), and finds himself conflicted about his college plans, unable to choose between basketball and theater. And as if this weren't enough, he's also struggling to figure out how to maintain his relationship with his loving girlfriend Gabriella (Vanessa Hudgens) when she opts for early admission to Stanford.

Pride and Glory

Pride and Glory
would be a pretty cool movie if it were made in 1982. We could get all postmodern-Tarantino about it and celebrate the clichés, skip the boring drawn-out dialogue scenes, and watch only the parts that are crazy and violent and ridiculous. Unfortunately, Pride and Glory was made in 2008, and while nobody's asking this textbook crime drama to reach for Scorsese-esque levels of greatness, most people would still ask it to not be terrible, which it is.

Rachel Getting Married

Rachel Getting Married
reminds audiences what Jonathan Demme does best, but also suffers from the same faults that have mucked up his recent work. The film opens with Kym's (Anne Hathaway) father (Bill Irwin) and stepmother picking her up from rehab so that Kym can go home for her sister Rachel's (Rosemarie DeWitt) nuptials. The family house overflows with musicians, artists, and friends who are busy preparing for the big event; someone in the house is playing music almost all the time. Within minutes of her arrival, the dysfunctional relationships within the family fall into a familiar rut, with Rachel yelling at Kym for her selfishness, Kym demanding sympathy from everyone, and their ineffectual dad trying to keep the peace.
