Here’s what’s opening in theaters across the country this weekend. We’ve got the rote rom-com The Bounty Hunter, the teenage agony film Diary of a Wimpy Kid, and we’ve got a crew of organ-repossessors running roughshod over personal freedoms in Repo Men – not to be confused with Repo: The Genetic Opera, the gothy musical version of the same idea that came out a year ago.

The Bounty Hunter

Jennifer Aniston is a reporter who skips a court appearance over a minor traffic incident to cover a story. Gerard Butler is her ex-husband, an ex-cop shouldering a huge gambling debt and scraping by with bounty-hunting work. He gets charged with bringing her in, and the resulting capers and clashes leave them wondering why they ever got together in the first place, as well as why they ever broke up.
