'Sherlock,' 'Chipmunks,' hit the big screen

LOS ANGELES /*Golden Globe*/ nominee /*Meryl Streep*/ stars with /*Alec Baldwin*/ and /*Steve Martin*/ in the romantic comedy, "It's Complicated." The title refers to their mixed up love lives: Streep and Baldwin play a couple who've been divorced for a decade. After their youngest child graduates from college, the two find themselves rekindling old feelings.

Martin's a promising new man who's come into her life, but her dalliance with the "ex" complicates her new romance. The film is rated-R.

"The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus" is the late /*Heath Ledger's*/ last on screen performance. Since Ledger passed away during filming, /*Johnny Depp*/, /*Jude Law*/ and /*Colin Farrell*/ stepped in to assist in completing the project.

Director Terry Gilliam's brings this dark fantasy about a deal with the devil and traveling sideshow to life. It's rated PG-13.

Jude Law also stars in another big film this weekend. Detective /*Sherlock Holmes*/ and his trusty partner Watson engage in a battle against a nemesis whose plot is a threat to all of England.

It's not your grandfather's Sherlock Holmes, that's for sure. Director /*Guy Ritchie*/ brings wit and humor, not to mention a lot of action to this interpretation of the classic character. "Sherlock Holmes" is rated PG-13 for violence, action, startling images and suggestive material.

It's a return of everyone's favorite singing animals with "/*Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel*/." Alvin, Simon, and Theodore return to school, where they hope to win a wad of cash in a battle of the bands contest. The boys plan to use the money to save their school's music department.

However, the Chipmunks didn't expect to meet their match in three female singing counterparts known as the Chipettes.

Two other films that have received a lot of awards season attention go into wider release this week: George Clooney's "/*Up in the Air*/," and director Rob Marshall's music and dance filled "/*Nine*/."
