LOS ANGELES, Calif. (September 14, 2007) – It’s a big weekend for Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts, who star in “Eastern Promises.”

The dramatic thriller, which is released today, received unanimous recommendations to “See It” from top movie critics. Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Entertainment Weekly, the Chicago Tribune, the Village Voice, Rolling Stone, the Philadelphia Inquirer and our own MovieMantz all gave praise to the picture.

Not faring as well is this weekend’s comedy debut – “Mr. Woodcock.” Starring Billy Bob Thornton, Susan Sarandon and “American Pie” goofball Seann William Scott, only the Hollywood Reporter, the Washington Post and the New York Times suggested you “See It.”

Finally, Jodie Foster’s return to the screen completely split the movie reviewer panel. Variety, the Hollywood Reporter, the Chicago Tribune and Access Hollywood’s MovieMantz suggested you “See It,” while the others labeled it a “Skip It” film.

Below is the complete list of “See It/Skip It” choices for the weekend:
