Also in theaters

BAGGAGE CLAIM A flight attendant (Paula Patton) who fears being the only one in her family to remain single goes to great lengths to find a man who will marry her before her youngest sister ties the knot. 1 hr. 38 PG-13

BLUE JASMINE 3 stars. Cate Blanchett storms her way through the title role of Woody Allen’s pastiche-y melodrama, about a fallen socialite seeking refuge in her sister’s San Francisco flat. Lifted in chunks from “A Streetcar Named Desire,” and offering wincing blue-collar-type caricatures, the film is nonetheless a wonder — thanks to its star. With Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins and Bobby Cannavale, looking on in awe. 1 hr. 38 PG-13

CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2 3 stars. Intrepid and irrepressible young inventor Flint Lockwood has more problems with food in this charming animated sequel. With the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, James Caan, and Will Forte. 1 hr. 35 PG

DON JON 3 stars. Joseph Gordon-Levitt writes, directs and stars in this tale of a North Jersey Lothario who has his whole life under control — including his addiction to porn. Enter Scarlett Johansson. If there’s a problem, it’s that just about everybody — Jon included — gets this close to caricature. R.

ELYSIUM 3 stars. Matt Damon is a 22nd century factory worker on a “diseased, polluted and vastly over-populated” Earth, trying to crash the gated community in the sky where the rich live in smug splendor. A rabble-rousing sci-fi allegory from the director of “District 9.” 1 hr. 49 R

ENOUGH SAID 4 stars. Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini (in his final leading role) are divorced parents, each with a college-bound daughter, who meet, date and take a real liking to each other. And then the trouble begins. A smart, funny movie for grown-ups from the hugely talented writer director Nicole Holofcener. 1 hr. 33 R
