Review: Bad Teacher

Review: My Sister's Keeper

Nick Cassavetes ( The Notebook ) gives competent direction to this weepie of the highest order, and there's an eclectic cast headed by Cameron Diaz, Jason Patric, and Little Miss Sunshine, Abigail Breslin.

Bostonians flummoxed by the great whatsits of Richard Kelly’s vaguely Spillanean Southland Tales stand an outside chance of querying the puzzler himself.

The Heartbreak Kid
