When she gets dumped by her fiancé, she connives to win over a rich, handsome substitute teacher (Justin Timberlake) - but has to compete with an overly energetic colleague, Amy (Lucy Punch), for his affections. Things get complicated when a sarcastic, irreverent gym teacher (Jason Segel) starts making advances on Elizabeth.

The story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero. As any good superhero would, he chooses a new name, Kick-Ass, assembles a suit and mask to wear, and gets to work fighting crime. There's only one problem standing in his way: Kick-Ass has absolutely no superpowers whatsoever. His life is forever changed as he inspires a subculture of copy cats, meets up with a pair of crazed vigilantes - including an 11-year-old sword-wielding dynamo, Hit Girl (Chloë Moretz) and her father, Big Daddy (Nicolas Cage) - and forges a friendship with another fledgling crimefighter, Red Mist (Christopher Mintz-Plasse). But thanks to the scheming of a local mob boss Frank D'Amico (Mark Strong), that new alliance will be put to the test.

If he can't, he will become just another victim who thought he'd found invincibility in a bottle.

Nessuno mi può giudicare
Con Paola Cortellesi, Raoul Bova, Rocco Papaleo, Anna Foglietta, Giovanni Bruno.
Alice, 35 anni e un figlio di 9, vive, superficiale e razzista, in una grande villa a Roma nord. Alla morte improvvisa del marito, imprenditore di sanitari, viene a sapere dall’avvocato di famiglia che il consorte l’ha lasciata sul lastrico e che, se non salderà al più presto il grosso debito, perderà anche la custodia del figlio. Seguendo Aziz, il cameriere che ha insultato fino a pochi minuti prima, Alice lascia il lusso a cui è abituata per trasferirsi su una terrazza malandata del quartiere popolare del Quarticciolo. Per guadagnare tanto e in fretta, poi, ricorre al mestiere più antico del mondo, facendosi dare lezioni da una escort professionista. Il lieto fine, garantito dal regime di commedia, che fa sì che tutti vivano ricchi felici e contenti, fa anche del film un invito bello e buono a risolvere i problemi nel modo più veloce e discutibile, perché tanto è la buona fede che conta e dunque “nessuno mi può giudicare”. Ma, moralismo a parte, la pericolosità del film di Massimiliano Bruno risiede altrove, meno in vista, più in profondità.

The team, along with civilian Sarah (Mary-Louise Parker) in tow, embarks on an impossible cross-country mission to break into the top-secret CIA headquarters, where they will uncover one of the biggest conspiracies and cover-ups in government history.
Starring Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Monaghan, Vera Farmiga and Jeffrey Wright.
