42, PG-13, 2 HRS., 8 MINS.
An old-fashioned drama about how Jackie Robinson broke the color line in professional baseball. B+Owen Gleiberman

The Big Wedding, R, 1 HR., 30 MINS.
Corny and contrived, but the actors shine in this matrimonial ensemble comedy — notably Robert De Niro and Diane Keaton as a divorced couple pretending to be married. BOwen Gleiberman

Deceptive Practice: The Mysteries and Mentors of Ricky Jay, Not Rated, 1 HR., 29 MINS.
Cardsharps, cheats, and conjurers. These are the curious characters who make up the weird world of Ricky Jay — arguably the world's greatest (and certainly most entertaining) magician. Jowly, erudite, and decidedly untrustworthy, Jay pays tribute to his mentors in a fantastically sly documentary. You'll feel like you're witnessing miracles. AChris Nashawaty

New Release: Love Is All You Need, R, 1 HR., 50 MINS.
Danish director Susanne Bier applies her heavy-handed touch to what is basically a Nora Ephron movie. In the clankingly surprise-free lonelyhearts romance, Pierce Brosnan plays an uptight widower, and Trine Dyrholm is the shy, put-upon wife whose daughter is marrying Brosnan's son. The two actors click so smoothly that all that's really keeping them apart is the script. COwen Gleiberman

Mud, PG-13, 2 HRS., 10 MINS.
Matthew McConaughey is charismatic and loose as an Arkansas fugitive aided by two teenage boys in Jeff Nichols' leisurely life-on-the-river coming-of-age story. B+Chris Nashawaty

Oblivion, PG-13, 2 HRS., 5 MINS.
Tom Cruise is essentially the last man on earth in this postapocalyptic mash-up of older, better sci-fi brainteasers. C+Chris Nashawaty
