While they certainly don’t have the Stateside recognition factor of Buzz Lightyear or the Monchichis, Wallace and Gromit grinned and ate cheese while celebrating their victory during a crowded weekend.  Audiences still haven’t figured out just how lousy Jodie Foster’s Flightplan is, keeping it in the second place holding pattern.   

Right after that air disaster came some expensive talent, namely Cameron Diaz and her footwear drama In Her Shoes, and Al Pacino in the sports betting flick Two for the Money (which I have unfortunately seen referred to as 2 4 the $). The power of Christ compelled people to see The Gospel, while only a few people were hungry for the restaurant comedy Waiting (which is already profitable anyway, thanks to generous tips).  Serenity is going into the shop for final repairs, and Into the Blue is desperately seeking a certified lifeguard. 

Next weekend keeps a busy October rolling with the bounty hunter flick Domino, Cameron Crowe’s latest Elizabethtown, George Clooney’s Red Scare movie Good Night and Good Luck, and the unnecessary remake of The Fog.
