Nature documentaries are having a pop culture moment. Disney as usual has their fingers on the pulse of the culture with the timely release of Disneynature’s Penguins.
Love the Coopers hits theatres November 13th, but Dork Shelf and eOne films want to send you and a guest to an advanced screening on November 11th in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Halifax, or Victoria!
Vacation manages to stand on its own while also paying tribute to the original National Lampoon film. The jokes are raunchy, the cameos are plenty, and the ride is worth it if you're not overly sentimental about this kind of thing.
