MONSTERS VS. ALIENS ½

(Comcast Free Movies) Digitally animated mega-entertainment from DreamWorks is amusing and over-familiar, made special by its use of 3-D; see it with the glasses or not at all. Reese Witherspoon, Hugh Laurie, and Seth Rogen provide the voices for this tale of monsters enlisted to stop an alien invasion. (PG; runs through June 30)

FINDING FORRESTER

(Starz on Comcast) This obvious and predictable film about a reclusive novelist and his brilliant protege from the ’hood has no business being as enjoyable as it is. The reasons are sterling performances from Sean Connery as the cranky mentor and Robert Brown as the promising writer he helps into a private academy, plus a love of language that shines through the film’s rigging. (PG-13; runs through July 4)

HEATHERS ½

(Showtime on Comcast) The smartest, most wickedly funny teen comedy since “Carrie.” It skewers the tyranny of popularity and the romanticizing of teen suicide as the social tyrants Winona Ryder hates start dying after she meets Christian Slater’s Jack Nicholson-like teen devil. (R; runs through July 9)
