There's a lot going on in Jiro Dreams of Sushi. It's a father-son story, a sushi aficionado's dream, a character exploration. This weekend's Sleeper to See is this simple, rich and delicious documentary about the world's greatest sushi chef and all the good and bad that comes along with that claim.
So you've watched Safe House and The Vow and you don't feel like sitting in a theater full of little kids watching The Lorax or teens watching Project X . Well, we're here to highlight three very different foreign flicks worth your time and money this weekend! Check 'em out!
While many of you headed to the theaters this weekend will either be catching up on some last-minute Oscar-nominated movie watching or indulging in one of the weekend's four new major releases, we resurrect our Sleepers to See column from winter hibernation to tout Undefeated.

While Hurricane Irene wreaked havoc at this weekend's box office, there were a couple of bright spots at the movies.
In case a bunch of apes ravaging the streets of San Francisco, or Jason Bateman and Ryan Reynolds swapping bodies and housemates doesn't fit your bill this weekend, we've added in a new blog post/category called...

"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
