Fans of Jack Reacher may choose Tom Cruise in "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back." while those in the mood for fright can see "Ouija: Origin of Evil."

But I’m all about the laughs this weekend.

In "Boo! A Madea Halloween," Tyler Perry returns as a cast of characters in the movie he’s also listed on as writer and director. This time, Madea has to face her fears and try to keep her granddaughter out of trouble at a Halloween fraternity party nearby. If you’re a fan of the Madea franchise, you’ll find plenty of familiar fun in this PG-13 flick.

But if you’re new to Tyler’s style of comedy, "Boo" may not really be for you. You can see my full interview with Tyler Perry here.

More laughs can be found in "Keeping up With the Joneses" (PG-13) starring Gal Gadot and Jon Hamm as sexy spies who move into a quiet neighborhood, only to find their simple neighbors played by Isla Fisher and Zach Galifinakis getting in the way. The chemistry among the cast is great, as I experienced face-to-face when interviewing them in LA. There’s action, some steamy moments and plenty of reasons to chuckle in what’s being billed as a great date movie.

Check out my full interview with Zach Galifinakis and Jon Hamm here, where Zach tries to figure out who I remind him of.
