Three sure-hit films arrive in theaters today.

Men of Honor, starring Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding Jr., about the first black Navy diver, is one film expected to be a big box office draw.

Little Nicky is a film starring funny man Adam Sandler who plays, of all things, the son of the devil and an angel. This one should appeal to adolescents and those of us who are still adolescents at heart.

Finally, Red Planet, a sci-fi thriller starring Val Kilmer, Tom Sizemore and Benjamin Bratt makes its way to theaters. It details what life on Mars could be like in the future.
