As it is Labor Day weekend, there’s not much planned around town. So it’s a good excuse to spend time with your families, ideally outdoors, and soak up what’s left of summer.

■ I, for one, am excited for this weekend’s movie selections at West Theatre. Check out “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” — with the always loveable Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling — and “The Change-Up” — with the also loveable Ryan Reynolds and Jason Bateman — for some adult laughs.
New at Redbox this week are “Rio,” “American Breakdown,” “Ghost Town,” “The Beaver,” “Tracker,” “Surf’s Up” and “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold.”
