• The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy: This came out on Wednesday, but, whatever. Manohla calls it "hugely likable"; that's an event in itself.
  • XXX: State of the Union: Ice Cube graduates to replacement-action-hero; protects President; makes smart-ass asides whilst blowing things up. Because that is, after all, what "Fuck Tha Police" was all about.
  • Funny Ha Ha: Tony Scott loves it almost as much as I do: "like its passive, quizzical heroine, it is unexpectedly seductive, and even, in its own stubborn, hesitant way, beautiful."
  • The Holy Girl: A "deadpan, deceptively haphazard ensemble comedy" from the directress of La Cienaga.
