Pick of the Week

The Fighter

Terrific ensemble of actors, really terrific directing, and a great story (though Jack Kerouac should have been the favorite son of Lowell, Mass., not a prize fighter who happened to knock down Sugar Ray Leonard.)

Pick of the Week

"Carlos"

Long, long, long, but powerful reimagining of Carlos the Jackal (assassin, playboy, sort-of-revolutionary).

How Do You Know

I expected to like it a lot more than I did. Reese Witherspoon does a nice job, but there's not much chemistry between her and Owen Wilson or Paul Rudd. I suspect the script was a big part of the problem. Worth seeing, but keep your expectations at a modest level.
