It’s Movie Monday and today we’re headed to the local cineplex for “Hustlers.” The plot sounds familiar: a group of strippers join forces to flip the script on their wealthy clients. But, we’re told it’s not really a comedy and, with a mostly A-list cast that includes Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Kiki Palmer and rapper Cardi B, surely it will be worth price of admission. Check local listing for theaters and show times.


Tuesday, Sept. 17



If you loved and miss “Desperate Housewives,” then you really need to check out Marc Cherry’s latest campy housewives drama, “Why Women Kill,” streaming on CBS All Access. We know you’ve been waiting for the latest season of “Star Trek: Discovery” and the premiere of “Picard” next year, but this fun diversion will help you justify the $5.99 monthly fee in the meantime.
