There was a hero at the box office this summer after all, but he’s wearing eye shadow instead of a tight blue bodysuit. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest has proven to be more than seeworthy, buoyed by a strong second weekend against a pair of comedy contenders and already justifying the back-to-back sequels.

Here’s something I’ll share: if you’re one of the people who saw the preview for Little Man and said "Yeah, I’ll pay to see that", you’re not someone I have any interest in knowing. In fact, I wish I had the ability to will you off the planet.  And anyone hoping for another raunchy comedy along the lines of Wedding Crashers got You Me and Dupree instead, and probably were less amused than the Man of Steel’s accountants and the animators who spent countless hours painting over Keanu’s head for A Scanner Darkly. 

Next weekend offers a wide variety of non-pirate alternatives include M. Night Shyamalan’s attempted recovery Lady in the Water, the "performance capture" digifilm Monster House, the superheroine romcom My Super Ex-Girlfriend, and Kevin Smith’s stagnation Clerks II.
