Reformed gangster and former wrestler Ricky, his wife Julia, daughter Saraya and son Zak make a living performing in tiny venues across the country. Ricky and Julia want a better life for their children and when brother and sister get the chance to audition for the WWE, it seems the family dream is coming true and all their troubles will be solved. However, Saraya and Zak are about to learn that becoming a WWE Superstar demands more than they ever imagined possible as athletes and siblings. 

PG-13. Drama/Sport. Directed by Stephen Merchant. 1h 48m.

What the Internet Says

“The family that smacks down together stays together, or at least that’s the idea in Fighting With My Family, a charmer about love and choreographed war.” ­– NY Times

“Fighting With My Family is also a delightful entry into a genre that has too few inspiring stories for young girls. It’s a warm-hearted underdog saga with a feminist undertone and a celebration of everyone’s inner misfit.”  ­– The Wrap

Our Take: Both the energy and acting left us cheering.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

What began as an unlikely friendship between an adolescent Viking and a fearsome Night Fury dragon has become an epic trilogy spanning their lives. In this next chapter, Hiccup and Toothless will finally discover their true destinies: the village chief as ruler of Berk alongside Astrid, and the dragon as leader of his own kind. As both ascend, the darkest threat they’ve yet faced—as well as the appearance of a female Night Fury—will test the bonds of their relationship like never before. 

PG. Fantasy/Action. Directed by Dean DeBlois. 1h 45m.

What the Internet Says

“Although "How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World" may be the third film in DreamWorks' series, in many ways, it's a first.” ­– Variety 

“Third time’s a fire-breathing charm.” – The Wrap

Our Take: We loved the first and second movies in the How to Train Your Dragon series – and the third is pretty much perfect. Trust us.
