Wayne Shorter: Zero Gravity

Premiering on what would have been the jazz saxophone master’s 90th birthday, Zero Gravity is an impressionistic biographical portrait divided into three “portals,” with animation and re-enactments scattered among testimonial interviews to reflect the breadth and personality of this influential visionary. Shorter, who died in March, is candid about his personal struggles, and animated when detailing his creative journey with the likes of Art Blakey and Miles Davis before breaking new ground with his band Weather Report and much later the Wayne Shorter Quartet. Come for the music, stay for the uplifting life story.

Vacation Friends 2

The slapstick never lets up in a sequel to 2021’s raucous comedy, when newlyweds Marcus (Lil Rel Howery) and Emily (Insecure’s Yvonne Orji) make the questionable call to invite their rowdy buddies, new parents Ron (John Cena) and Kyla (Meredith Hagner), to join them on a free trip to the Caribbean. Marcus’ secret mission is to impress the resort’s owners for a construction bid, but when the businessmen show up ahead of schedule, and Kyla’s jailbird dad (Steve Buscemi) unexpectedly arrives, the best-laid plans go where they usually do. Merry mayhem invariably ensues.

As editor of trendy 1970s’ erotic mag Minx, Joyce Prigger (Ophelia Lovibond) is riding high—preening as she returns to her alma mater of Vassar College with sister Shelly (Lennon Parham) to accept an honor as “an icon of sexual liberation.” Anyone familiar with the rhythms of this saucy, sardonic comedy will not be surprised when her ego trip hits a speed bump or two—especially after Shelly hits it off with Joyce’s favorite professor (Melinda Page Hamilton, who Mad Men fans may recognize as Anna Draper). Back on the West Coast, Doug (Jake Johnson) accompanies Tina (Idara Victor) to her disapproving mom’s retirement party, hoping to be welcomed into the family. The porn publisher isn’t thrilled to find himself sitting at the kids’ table.
