The Matador Freed from his Bond bonds, Pierce Brosnan cuts loose as a hard-drinking, hilariously raunchy hit man who's having a nervous breakdown in a groovy, twist-filled comic thriller. Greg Kinnear and Hope Davis costar. (R)

Last Holiday Queen Latifah has a jolly time playing a meek department store clerk who treats herself to a final, blowout vacation in Europe upon learning she has only weeks to live. This predictable comedy is funnier than it deserves to be, thanks mostly to the Queen's good cheer and Gérard Depardieu's bearish charm as a famous chef. LL Cool J also stars. (PG-13)

Brokeback Mountain Two cowboys in love, but so much more. Heath Ledger gives a heartbreaking performance as a man incapable of crossing the bridge to his own happiness. (R)
