    Movies

    Poor Adaline Bowman, sentenced to an eternity of looking like Blake Lively, by a movie premise more preposterous than anything Vin Diesel tried lately. Thanks to scientific hoo-hah that won't be discovered until 2035, Adaline never ages.

    Her movie gets old quickly.

  15. Opening Friday: 'The Age of Adaline'

    Movies

    Staying 29 years old forever isn't all it's cracked up to be for the heroine of The Age of Adaline (PG-13). Sure, she can look like Blake Lively forever but Ryan Reynolds doesn't come with the package. Long-term romance is hard when you could wind up both as a cougar and a PYT for the same guy.
