"GRUDGE MATCH" from Warner Brothers opens Dec. 25, 2013.

STARRING: Sylvester Stallone, Robert DeNiro, Alan Arkin, Kevin Hart and Kim Basinger.

DIRECTOR: Peter Segal ("Tommy Boy", "Fifty First Dates").

Synopsis: Two bitter boxing rivals are coaxed back into the ring for a grudge match fifty years after they fought for the title.

It's a boxing movie starring two guys who are long past any interest in this pathetic excuse of a sport. Dust off your 'Rock 'Em Robots' and have just as much fun.

"THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY" from Twentieth Century Fox opens Dec. 25, 2013.

STARRING: Ben Stiller Kristen Wiig, Patton Oswalt, Adam Scott, Kathryn Hahn and Sean Penn.

DIRECTOR: Ben Stiller.

Synopsis: Stiller plays a timid magazine photo manager who daydreams of exciting adventures only to get into an adventure of his own when he goes in search of a missing photo negative.

Really overdone. Doesn't hold the audience in its spell. Ben Stiller took too many liberties with reality and lost sight of his point. He's still a funny guy though.

"THE WOLF OF WALL STREET" from Paramount opens Dec. 25, 2013.

STARRING: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie, Jon Favreau, Kyle Candler and Shea Whigham.

DIRECTOR: Martin Scorcese ("Taxi Driver", "Raging Bull", "Cape Fear").

Synopsis: A young New York stockbroker named Jordan Belfort (DiCaprio) refuses to take part in a large securities fraud case involving corruption on Wall Street, the corporate banking world and mob infiltration.

The best of the lot for Christmas day viewing. DiCaprio hits a home run with this one and hams it up with just the right restraint. It is not the best movie of the year but it certainly is the best this week.
