Sucker Punch
A girl in a mental hospital (Emily Browning) dreams up a fantastical world and battles samurais, snakes and Don Draper alongside other 98-pound girls (including Vanessa Hudgens, again) in order to be free. Uh, what? (Warner Bros.)

Beastly
A popular asshole high-schooler (Alex Pettyfer) is cursed by a witch (Mary-Kate Olsen) and becomes—no!—ugly. Fortunately, a “plain” girl (Vanessa Hudgens) teaches him that looks aren’t everything. Uh, what? (CBS Films)

Season of the Witch
Speaking of witches who are too old to pass as high-schoolers: An evil sorceress has brought the Black Plague upon the land, and only wiggy medieval knight Behmen (wiggy Nicolas Cage) can stop it. Uh, what? (Rogue)

Warehouse 13: Season 2
Artifact cops Pete and Myka (Eddie McClintock, Joanne Kelly) track down more supernatural knickknacks, trade bodies, save the world and come face-to-face with H.G. Wells … who’s a woman (Jaime Murray). Uh, what? (Universal)

Wild Cherry
When three high-school girls discover a Book of Virgins that pairs them with football jocks for deflowering, hilarious revenge high jinx and the last known sighting of Rob Schneider ensue. Finally, a plotline that makes sense. (Image)
