Whatever you do, if you're planning to see Love the Coopers this weekend at the movies, don't accidentally go to a showing of Love. Or vice-versa, for that matter.

The ensemble comedy-drama Love the Coopers tries to pull a dysfunctional family together for Christmas Eve, but proves insufferable except for the charming segment featuring Jake Lacy and Olivia Wilde (pictured). Gaspar Noé's Love, on the other hand, is a sexually-explicit attempt to portray a tumultuous relationship, but it's far better at exposing genitals than at exposing hearts. Far more wholesome, corny and surprisingly lump-in-the-throat effective is My All American, a true-story underdog sports drama from the writer behind vintage underdog sports dramas like Hoosiers and Rudy.

In this week's feature review, The 33 takes the potentially inspirational true story of trapped Chilean miners and blunders through a trite, sloppily structured and poorly acted mess.
