Friday’s openings: More than just a ‘Disaster’

Comedy in a couple of different forms will be on tap beginning Friday, at least according to the national movie-release schedule. The two scheduled openings are:

"The Disaster Artist": James Franco directed, and stars in, this adaptation of the book "The Disaster Artist," which details the making of one of the worst films ever made, Tommy Wiseau's "The Room." You are tearing me apart, Lisa! (Note: The film opened in limited release last Friday and is now going wider, to 800 theaters.)

"Just Getting Started": Morgan Freeman and Tommy Lee Jones stars as mismatched partners (one a former mob lawyer, the other an ex-FBI agent) who have to work together to foil a mob hit. Maybe they'll make an offer we can't refuse.

I'll update when the local bookings become finalized.
