On Friday, Chris Evans and Tommy Lee stars in the Marvel's comic book/movie Captain America: The First Avenger, while Mila Kunis and Justin Timberlake hit theaters in the romantic comedy Friends With Benefits.

 Also opening this weekend is the comedy/drama A Little Help, starring Jenna Fischer and Chris O’Donnell.

See what The Hollywood Reporter's critics have to say about those films -- and others opening this weekend -- and find out how well they are expected to perform at the box office.

Captain America: The First Avenger
Bottom Line: As the last Marvel prequel that includes two Iron Man and Incredible Hulk movies before next summer’s The Avengers, this one feels perhaps a little too simplistic and routine.

Friends With Benefits
Bottom Line:
Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis make for engaging leads in this unexpectedly fresh R-rated comedy.

A Little Help
Bottom Line:
Jenna Fischer shines in this manipulative dramedy set in ennui-ridden suburbia.

A heartbreaking, wonderfully acted and superbly dramatized drama.

The Myth of An American Sleepover
Bottom Line:
Sleepover is less a fully realized artistic expression than an able reworking of a well-worn genre.
