Movies opening this week:

  • "Radio" (PG) - Cuba Gooding Jr. and Ed Harris star in this true story of a mentally challenged man in a small South Carolina town and the football coach who encouraged him to become the team's mascot and morale booster. S. Epatha Merkerson, Riley Smith and Debra Winger also star.

  • "Scary Movie 3" (PG-13) - The Scary Movie gang is back in the third installment in this spoof series, but they are no longer content to stick to the horror genre.
