Former cropduster plane turned racing sensation Dusty Crophopper overcame his crippling fear of heights during the events of 'Planes', but he's about to show even stronger feats of bravery in his latest escapades. Discovering that some serious damage has been done to his engine, he sadly contemplates that he may have to abandon his racing dreams. Instead, he decides on a new path: aerial firefighting. This time he teams up with Blade Ranger, a long-serving fire and rescue helicopter who's currently recruiting several crafts to take on a big job in the forest as a brutal wildfire sweeps the trees. Joining him is a group of fearless ground vehicles called The Smokejumpers, and together they work to save lives in what could be the most heroic venture of their lives. But will this be a career that Dusty decides to stick with?

Nick Twisp (Cera) is a 16-year-old who feels out of sync with the world. He has a summer job in a caravan park, where he instantly falls in love with Sheeni (Doubleday), the fiercely protected daughter of religious nutcases (Walsh and Place). Sheeni is like a female version of him, only sexy and smarter, and he creates an imaginary alter ego named Francois Dillinger to give him the confidence to seduce her. But of course things go wrong from the start.

Right around the time Pixar Animation Studios released its fifth feature, Finding Nemo, conversation shifted from "Is it any good?" to "Just how amazing is it?" Quality was assumed, and rightfully so. The studio's creative directors helped redefine the animation genre with the Toy Story franchise, A Bug's Life and Monsters, Inc. Subsequent Pixar stories were measured against their predecessors and ranked accordingly.

But seriously, Chicken Little is Disney's first solo stab at a CGI kiddie flick, something that was going to happen sooner or later and which, given Disney's recent track record in animation, has had most moviegoers scared silly. Chicken Little takes an age-old fable and hands the story to director Mark Dindal (who directed the best animated Disney movie in recent memory, the under-seen The Emperor's New Groove). Nice start, but... Chicken Little? "The sky is falling, the sky is falling?" In the original story, Chicken Little gets beaned with an acorn and gathers up all his friends to tell the king that the sky is falling. As they trek to visit the king, they are captured by Foxy Loxy and (depending on how gruesome the interpretation you're reading is) are promptly eaten.

Every perfect and picturesque neighborhood - at least in the movies - has one: that creepy old house that fuels the nightmares and serves as the centerpiece of the double-dog dares for the local kids.
DJ (Mitchel Musso) has made the house his mission. He's set his bedroom up as home base to watch old Mr. Nebbercracker across the street, an irate curmudgeon (voiced by Steve Buscemi) who steals any balls or bikes that find their way into his yard, chases after kids to keep off his lawn, and, presumably, thinks the music kids listen to today is nothing but noise. Within an hour of DJ's parents leaving for the weekend, Nebbercracker is dead (from a heart attack during an apoplectic moment at finding DJ on his lawn) and DJ is finding out that the old coot might not have been the most dangerous part of the creepy old house, because the house itself is starting to... eat people.

- The title. How to Lose Your Lover, retitled (barely) from the original 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover, is far too reminiscent of 10 Thngs I Hate About You and the appallingly bad How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. This film doesn't actually resemble either of those movies, but its too familiar a title to make people run to the cineplex.

Anchorman launches us into the world of '70s broadcast journalism with local San Diego anchor Ron Burgundy (Will Ferrell) as the poster boy for men behaving badly. His supporting anchors introduce themselves by breaking the fourth wall with all the casual gusto of their on-air personas. There's good-ol'-boy Champ Kind (David Koechner) with sports, ladies' man Brian Fantana (Paul Rudd) in the field, and dumb-as-a-Brick Tamland (Steven Carell) on weather. They revel in their boys' club with gleeful ignorance of terms like "sexual harassment" until new reporter Veronica Corningstone (Christina Applegate) enters the fray. Improbably, Ron and Veronica hit it off until a series of events puts her in the co-anchor seat and professional jealousy rips them apart, sending Ron on a downward spiral.

How High is definitely one of the good ones. Lowbrow, vulgar, and certainly formulaic, it's also creative, absolutely hilarious, and -- judging from the crowd at my screening -- knows better than to shoot over its audience's heads.

Jennifer Lopez must have an iron stomach to have been able to read even the first five pages "The Wedding Planner" script without losing her lunch.
After a Vaseline-lensed prologue flashback showing a little girl playing wedding with Ken and Barbie, the first scene of this saccharinely half-witted, cutesy-poo, allegedly romantic alleged comedy finds a Miss Lonelyhearts wedding coordinator (Lopez) calmly delivering a client's nuptials from the jaws of chaos.
With a counterfeit Tinkerbell twinkle in her eye and a fairy dust spring in her step, she reassures a nervous bride with an insincere go-get-'em speech, produces a clothespin to save a bridesmaid from a cleavage crisis and sobers up the father of the bride, all the while dictating this and that detail to subordinates through an ear-piece walkie-talkie.
