After the ridiculously huge month that was March 2017, featuring huge blockbusters debuting every weekend, we're now going to slow things down a bit. Before we head into the summer season, April is going to feature a calmed down Hollywood (with a couple of exceptions). This week, for example, we have treats for both the older and younger demographics, but not much for those in-between. Get ready for Going in Style and Smurfs: The Lost Village. It's gonna be a Rotten Week!

Just remember, I'm not reviewing these movies, but rather predicting where they'll end up on the Tomatometer. Let's take a look at This Rotten Week has to offer.

There are an awful lot of movies in which the protagonists rob a bank. Maybe it's the "damn the man" mentality so many people have, or maybe it's just that the likability of movie stars makes us cheer for them regardless of what they're doing. Either way, people seem to root for bank robbers. In Going In Style, three retirees (Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin) find out their pension funds have run dry, and they devise a plan to go out and rob the very bank they believe stole their money. You can see why folks would root for the heroes in this scenario.

Going In Style looks cute enough, and the trailer had some laughs from these three acting legends, with Zach Braff (Wish I Was Here - 44%, Garden State - 86%) managing the comedic timing as the director. I don't think it blows critics completely away, but I can imagine it getting a middling score considering the cast and plot.
