“Escape from Planet Earth” misses with thin plot

If “Monsters vs. Aliens” and “Space Chimps” got together and had a baby, it would probably be “Escape from Planet Earth.” Like its metaphoric parents, it has smooth lines, slick animation and capable vocal cast, but occasionally...

So, if you don’t have a date for Valentine’s Day… watch these sad classics instead

As long as you don’t think too much, ‘Broken City’ does all right
