An opus is, say, a thick Leo Tolstoy novel that sits unread on your shelf. But capital-O Opus is Allied Arts’ big biennial fundraiser, and the latest happens from 7:30 to 11:30 p.m. Friday at Oklahoma City Golf & Country Club, 7000 N.W. Grand. Enjoy a gourmet buffet, a live auction and music by The Pink Flamingos. Tickets are $200. Call 278-8944 or visit alliedartsokc.com.

Why Stop Now

Don’t even start.


Comedy

Rod Lott
Why Stop Now is a comedy that tries too hard to be a comedy. C’mon, you know the kind: Although grounded in reality, the film presents characters so quirky, they may as well come with signs around their neck to signal their stock roles, i.e. “Precocious Sibling” and “Black Sidekick.” Incidentally, this one fronts both of those examples.

The Bowery Boys: Volume Two


Comedy

Rod Lott
In the span of a decade, post-World War II, the comedy team known as The Bowery Boys (née The East Side Kids, née The Dead End Kids) made 48 movies. Up until now, I’d seen exactly zero of them.

Olympus Has Fallen

And it can't get up!


Action

Rod Lott
As Aaron Eckhart grows angry and Morgan Freeman pulls strings from the sidelines, a possibly crazy but altogether decent man dishes out some superheroic justice to save the city. The result is an excellent movie, arguably the best of the year.
