                                                   AGING ATKISSON BOTANICAL CAMARADERIE
                      American Born Chinese is an action/comedy series that was recently released on Disney+. Ben Wang plays Jin Wang, who was just a regular teenager until he fifinds himself entangled in a bat-
tle of Chinese mythological gods. Audiences will see familiar faces from the cast of Everything
Everywhere All At Once, including Michelle Yeoh, Stephanie Hsu, James Hong and this actor who rose to fame with his role as Data in The Goonies.
Is it better to be nice or honest? Is it possible to be both? Those questions are at the center of the dramedy You Hurt My Feelings, which stars Julia Louis Dreyfus as a successful but sensitive writer whose self-worth is upended when she fifinds out her supportive therapist husband (played by Tobias Menzies) doesn’t really like her latest novel. The film also stars Arrested Development alum David Cross and this actress who is his real-life wife.
Starring Jamie Lee Curtis and Lindsey Lohan, Freaky Friday came out 20 years ago. Curtis has been keeping busy since then and went on to win an Oscar for her role in Everything Everywhere All at Once. She’s also completed the remake of Haunted Mansion, which hits theaters July 28. It features Tiffany Haddish, Danny DeVito, Jared Leto and this actor who’s
no stranger to the big screen with roles in You, Me and Dupree; Marley and Me; and Marvel’s Loki series.
It’s been 19 years since the world met an awkward Midwestern teen named Napoleon in the cult classic Napoleon Dynamite. The 2004 film became a phenomenon — so much so that Jon Heder says he will never escape the character — and grossed $46.1 million in the box office (a far cry from its $400,000 budget). Playing Napoleon’s strangely nostalgic uncle is this actor who recently shot back into stardom after playing Jennifer Coolidge’s husband in The White Lotus.
