Wonder Woman PG-13
Overall: B+

Leaving her sheltered home in the Amazon, Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) discovers a wider world in need of a hero -- and that is when Wonder Woman is born.

After Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) experiences a strange, close encounter (of a third kind) with an UFO, he is left with an oddly burned face and an unexplainable obsession for a particular shape.

Cultural expectations and differences are a big problem for Kumail (Kumail Nanjiani), a Muslim man born in Pakistan, and Emily (Zoe Kazan), a Caucasian, American woman. Their affair remains a secret until Emily becomes seriously sick and Kumail meets her parents (Ray Romano, Holly Hunter) in the hospital waiting room.

If you can't say anything nice about your school principal (voice of Ed Helms) -- hypnotize him! Or at least that is what two creative kids do (voiced by Kevin Hart and Thomas Middleditch). Then they turn him into a comedic superhero, and call him Captain Underpants.
