Picks and Pans Review: Also Playing

Bigger than the Sky


After being dumped by his girlfriend, a bland fellow (Marcus Thomas, boring as a TV test pattern) in Portland, Ore., lands a role in a community theater production of Cyrano de Bergerac and finds himself cavorting with theater types (John Corbett and Amy Smart) in a slight, stage-struck comedy. (PG-13)

Son of the Mask


A cartoonist (Jamie Kennedy) discovers that his infant son (Liam and Ryan Falconer) has strange powers in this weak attempt to retool 1994's The Mask as a franchise for kids. Lacking both Jim Carrey and laughs, Mask Jr. can boast only excessive volume and special effects.



Keanu Reeves monotones his way through a cool-looking but brainless supernatural thriller that plays like Matrix Lite. Rachel Weisz costars. (R)
