Like Gangster Squad last week, Broken City, Peter Travers' selection for this week's At the Movies, features an all-star cast in a unbelievably crummy movie. The film, directed by Allen Hughes, stars Russell Crowe as the mayor of New York, who hires an ex-cop turned private eye (Mark Wahlberg) to find out whether his wife (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is having an affair. Though the film's plot starts out intriguing, it soon becomes completely illogical and morphs into an over-the-top melodrama – and don't even get Travers started on Crowe's look: "The Kardashians wouldn't spray-tan themselves as bad as Russell Crowe did," he rails. As Travers says, you know it's a bad week at the movies when Arnold Schwarzenegger's The Last Stand is the best movie opening.
