Which will make your weekend complete: Diane Lane trudging through horse manure, or Katherine Heigl with baby poop on her cheek? Read on and decide.

New and Noteworthy: 'Secretariat'


Starring:Diane Lane, John Malkovich, Dylan Walsh, Scott Glenn, Dylan Baker, Nelsan Ellis, Kevin Connolly
Directed by:Randall Wallace
What It's About: The famed 1970s Triple Crown winner, prepped for racetrack immortality by the housewife who owned him (Lane) and the trainer (Malkovich) who put him through his paces.
Why Should You See It? Because you like triumph-of-the-underdog sports movies. Because this one is Disney-certified family fare. Because of the pros in front of and behind the camera, including Wallace, the guy who wrote 'Braveheart.' And because there's buzz that 'Secretariat' could follow in 'Seabiscuit's' hoofprints on the race toward the Oscars.
You Might Like It If You Like: 'Seabiscuit,' 'Dreamer: Inspired by a True Story,' 'National Velvet'
