“Fast and Furious 6,” one of Hollywood’s longest-running movie franchises proves one thing – women like boys and cars. And boys like women…and cars. The boys – Vin Diesel, Tyrese, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ludacris, Paul Walker and the girls – Jordana Brewster, Michelle Rodriguez and Gina Carano, are all present and accounted for this go-round. The other big movie this weekend is “The Hangover III,” which didn’t get as much love from the critics this time. If you don’t want to brave the crowds at the multiplex, you can head out to several Memorial Day Weekend concerts instead. Read on to see where you should be this weekend and have a happy and safe holiday.
