Entertainment this weekend

MEG007.JPGThis weekend’s entertainment options include several family-friendly picks.

“Shake It Up,” 8:30 p.m. Sunday, Disney Channel: This teen buddy comedy set against the world of dance gets a lot of energy from stars 13-year-old Bella Thorne and 14-year-old Zendaya. It’s a nice fit for the Disney Channel formula of programs aimed at young girls.

“Toy Story 3″: Woody, Buzz and the rest of the toys try to adjust to what life is going to be like after Andy leaves for college. The film continues the high standards — from cutting-edge computer work to smart writing — that have made Pixar Studios the Disney of the 21st century when it comes to animation.

“Megamind”: Director Tom McGrath offers a clever take on the Superman-Lex Luthor storyline that’s been copied and parodied in loads of TV and film projects. His film looks at what would happen if Superman’s girlfriend, Lois Lane, had more in common with his arch nemesis, Lex Luther. That twist makes for a film with more pow, zap and thump than most animated offerings.

Timmothy, regarding your comment, Remember, if we hadn’t had that Neocon, conservative pretender, we would still have the House, and Senate, I seem to recall that the Republican-controlled House and Senate started spending our money like there was no end to it, and W went along with them without even expressing any outrage, much less a veto.
