Frat vs. family comedy Neighbors won't haze you.

✔ Critics' Pick

We lead this week's film round-up with one of the last offerings of Philip Seymour Hoffman in God's Pocket, which poses the late, great thespian as Mickey Scarpato, "a connected schlub" imbibed with "workaday melancholy" as he tries to raise money for his stepson's funerary expenses. We keep it heavy this May, ambling forward into some breathtaking documentaries, a little bad horror, and even some family-friendly titles that range from the land of Oz to the inside of a sandwich.
