Far from Heaven B+

(PG-13) (107 min.) Director Todd Haynes revives the lush, three-hankie film styles of the 1950s in a gorgeous but timid melodrama.

Strong sexual situations, profanity. _ Tampa Theatre, Baywalk 20

Friday After Next B

(R) (85 min.) _ The misadventures of Craig (writer Ice Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) continue, with more genuine laughs than the first two Friday films combined.

Real Women Have Curves B
