On Demand movie highlights

IN TIME

(HBO on Comcast) In Andrew Niccol’s undercooked science-
fiction caper, at age 25, the aging process ceases, and life becomes a constant pursuit of rollover minutes. Failure results in a permanent service interruption. Justin Timberlake is almost out of time until the windfall he receives makes him a murder suspect. But, really: What’s this movie about? Is it an allegory for the class divide? The tyranny of calling plans? It’s hard to care. (PG-13; runs through Jan. 21)

KIT KITTREDGE: AN AMERICAN GIRL

(HBO on Comcast) The first “American Girls” movie is so warmly old-fashioned that it feels brand new. Abigail Breslin smacks of gingham and Ovaltine as the title character, a 1934 kid weathering the Depression with friends and family. Aside from a brief, silly mystery subplot, the movie has the nerve and the grace to show people pulling together to save each other from disaster. (G; runs through Jan. 21)

THE FIGHTING TEMPTATIONS

(Showtime on Comcast) Cuba Gooding Jr. takes another giant step away from his 1996 Oscar as a slick yuppie who inherits the direction of a Georgia church choir. Jonathan Lynn’s formulaic comedy is sloppily filmed but has solid supporting comics (Mike Epps, Steve Harvey) and galvanic singers (Eddie Levert Sr.,
Melba Moore, Reverend Shirley Caesar) to ease the pain. Beyoncé Knowles remains a better singer than actress, and Gooding’s overacting may make you flinch. (PG-13; runs through Jan. 22)
