EVERYBODY NEEDS SOMEBODY, YOU'RE NOT THE ONLY ONE



NEW IN THEATRES...

* Dinner for Schmucks, a good comedy that could have been great had it not played it so safe. Great performances by Steve Carrel and Paul Rudd, though.

* South of the Border, Oliver Stone's documentary about South American leaders...and Oliver Stone.

UPDATED TO CRITERION CONFESSIONS...

* The Secret of the Grain, a winning French drama. A little Kitchen Sink, a little Ozu, and lot's of heart.

THIS WEEK IN DVD REVIEWS...

* Date Night: Extended Edition: Steve Carrel is two for two this week for being in movies that he's better than. He and Tina Fey prove they can make even a mediocre production entertaining.

* The Wind Journeys, a folkloric Colombian movie about accordion masters, including their wicked insult battles.



Current Soundtrack: Dean & Britta, 13 Most Beautiful: Songs For Andy Warhol's Screen Tests - 21 songs, $11!

A new Galifianakis interview is up. The episode's presented by Speed Stick. I'm not a fan.

I'm sorry you don't like Speed Stick. I've never used it.

You're not missing anything. It's like toothpaste in your armpits.
