'Limitless' and 'The Lincoln Lawyer' Cooper, McConaughey star in perfect escapist movies

After a winter full of horrible duds, Peter Travers is happy to report that he enjoyed all three movies that he saw this week. He says that Limitless, a movie in which Bradley Cooper takes a miracle drug that allows him to use 100 percent of his brain, and The Lincoln Lawyer, a legal thriller starring Matthew McConaughey, are both perfect escapist date night movies. Travers also digs Paul, a sci-fi comedy featuring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz as well as Seth Rogen as an animated alien.
