Movies opening this weekend:

Cuba Gooding Jr., left, and Ed Harris star in "Radio," the story of a mentally challenged young man and the high school football coach who becomes his mentor and friend.

"Beyond Borders": Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen star in this romantic drama about a sheltered American socialite living in London and a renegade humanitarian doctor who bond over a shared concern for the plight of people in troubled nations. The movie follows the duo through a decade of living and working together in countries such poverty-stricken Cambodia and war-torn Chechnya. (R)

"Radio": From a 1996 Sports Illustrated article comes a true-life take on the story of a white high school football coach who befriends a mentally challenged black man nicknamed Radio in the racially charged North Carolina of the 1960s. Ed Harris plays the coach and Cuba Gooding Jr. portrays the man the coach mentors and encourages to become the team's mascot and morale booster. (PG)

"Scary Movie 3": While the original creators, the Wayans brothers, are out, Charlie Sheen, Queen Latifah, Anthony Anderson, Peter Boyle, Simon Cowell, Ja Rule, Macy Gray, Jenny McCarthy, Pamela Anderson, Leslie Nielsen and Eddie Griffin join lead actress Anna Faris for this third round of movie spoofing. "The Lord of the Rings," "The Others," "Signs," "The Ring" and even "8 Mile" are made fun of, all under the direction of "Airplane" co-creator David Zucker. (PG-13)
