This weekend's movies offer drama, laughter and their share of excitment.
Our Movie Profiler Fandango's Melinda Petrow gave us her take this morning on JOY FM, and here is a brief synopsis of each of the three.

Columbiana
Cataleya, a young woman who has grown up to be an assassin after witnessing the murder of her parents as a child.

Don't be Afraid of the Dark
A young girl inadvertently unleashes a race of ancient monsters while exploring her father's 19th century mansion in this horror remake. Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison) has just moved in with her father, Alex (Guy Pearce), and his girlfriend, Kim (Katie Holmes), when she realizes that their sprawling estate holds its fair share of secrets.

Our Idiot Brother
Scruffy idealist Ned (Paul Rudd) wreaks havoc on the lives of his mother (Shirley Knight) and three sisters, Miranda (Elizabeth Banks), Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), and Liz (Emily Mortimer), while overstaying his welcome and voicing his opinions when they aren't wanted.
