Five ways you can have fun this weekend:1. There’s one big movie opening this week. It is “Hot Pursuit,” a PG-13 action-comedy starring Reese Witherspoon and Sofía Vergara.2. This Sunday is, of course, Mother’s Day. It’s not too late to plan a super-special day for mom. Take her somewhere special, make her breakfast in bed or a special dinner, let her relax at a spa - any idea is good as long as you celebrate your mom!
