Saturday, February 21st

(5:00-7:00 PM ET/PT) TARZAN This Academy Award(R) winning adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs's story begins deep within the jungle when baby Tarzan (Tony Goldwyn) is adopted by a family of gorillas. Even though he is shunned as a "hairless wonder" by their leader, Tarzan is accepted by the gorillas and raised as one of their own. Together with his wisecracking ape buddy Terk (Rosie O'Donnell) and neurotic elephant pal Tantor (Wayne Knight), Tarzan learns how to swing through the trees and survive in the animal kingdom. His two worlds collide with the arrival of humans, forcing Tarzan to choose between a "civilized" life with the beautiful Jane (Minnie Driver) and the life he knows and loves with his gorilla family. "Tarzan" repeats on Sunday, February 22nd at 3:00PM ET/PT.

(7:00PM -9:00 PM ET/PT) DESPICABLE ME In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences and flowering rose bushes sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout belonging to Gru (Steve Carrell), a dastardly villain who, along with the help of his many little minions, is planning the biggest heist in the history of the world: he's going to steal the moon! But his plans are foiled the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. This smash hit boasts a stellar all-star vocal cast that includes Julie Andrews, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Danny McBride, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Mindy Kaling and more. "Despicable Me" repeats on Sunday, February 22nd at 5:00PM ET/PT.

(9:00-11:00 PM ET/PT) WRECK-IT RALPH The ABC Family premiere of this Academy Award(R)-nominated animated feature is a hilarious, arcade-game-hopping journey. For decades, Ralph (John C. Reilly) has played the bad guy in his popular video game. In a bold move, he embarks on an action-packed adventure and sets out to prove to everyone that he is a true hero with a big heart. As he explores exciting new worlds, he teams up with some unlikely new friends including feisty misfit Vanellope von Schweetz (Sarah Silverman). Then, when an evil enemy threatens their world, Ralph realizes he holds the fate of the entire arcade in his massive hands. "Wreck-It Ralph" repeats on Sunday, February 22nd at 7:00pm ET/PT.

(11PM - 1:30AM ET/PT) HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEW YORK In the uproarious sequel to "Home Alone," Kevin McCallister (Macaulay Culkin) is back, and this time his playground is New York City. Separated once again from the rest of his family, who are on vacation in Florida, Kevin uses his father's credit card to have a grand "Big Apple" time! Soon, though, Kevin discovers that Harry (Joe Pesci) and Marv (Daniel Stern), the robbers he foiled once before, are out of prison and in New York planning a huge toy store heist. Kevin sets out to deter them again, only this time the robbers are equally as determined - to make sure Kevin is killed! "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York" repeats on Sunday, February 22nd at 9:00PM ET/PT.
