Anne Hathaway stars with Julie Andrews, who plays the royal grandmother who tries to be the Henry Higgins to the girl's Eliza Doolittle (G).

"Rush Hour 2" -- Hoping to follow up on the 1998 original's boffo box office, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker reunite in this sequel. This time the action heads to Chan's home turf of Hong Kong, where they get involved in a conspiracy involving casinos, bombs and Zhang Ziyi, in a role originally written for a man but retooled after director Brett Ratner saw her in "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (PG-13).
