How Street is Keanu’s Kings? Are Ellen Page and Dennis Quaid too Smart for the critics? Will the unscreened Prom Night win the box office tiara? Your RT editors tackle this weekend’s new flicks to let you know what’s worth seeing in theaters. Watch it now here!

As you can see, our third weekly RT Review Revue video round up has quickly become a fancy affair. By which we mean that two of us dressed up in costume to relive our bygone teen years, senior prom-style.

RT’s Dave Chung, Matt Atchity and Jen Yamato

This week we talk about the critical prospects of Keanu ReevesStreet Kings, in which he bravely attempts to convey corruption and dark, flawed soullessness as an alcoholic cop. (We don’t buy it, Neo — and neither do the critics!) Also in theaters is the indie character drama Smart People, starring smart actors like Dennis Quaid, Thomas Haden Church, and Juno — er, Ellen Page. Lastly, your friendly neighborhood editors chat up the not-really-a-remake Prom Night, which was, shockingly, not screened for critics.

Next week: Jen as Al Pacino and Matt and Dave as RT’s own Jet Li and Jackie Chan as we bring you the critical skinny on 88 Minutes, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, and The Forbidden Kingdom.
