The Guys Have It
Of course you love the actual men in your life: the husband, the boyfriend, Mr. UPS. But you'll be thrilled to learn that some generally less accessible fellows have quality time to offer you this season. You'll get two hours or so. Alone in the dark. All you need is a movie ticket. Enjoy.

What Adrien Brody and Mark Ruffalo (above) have in common is a droll charm that barely conceals a reservoir of sadness; playing con-men siblings who enmesh dizzy heiress Rachel Weisz in one last job, the actors bring melancholy depth to the light-fingered caper comedy The Brothers Bloom.
