Weekend Movie Guide: It's Nick and Nora

Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist looks like an ideal date movie for confused and annoying teens. The presence of the awesomely talented Michael Cera, however, insures my aged presence. Beverly Hills Chihuahua looks so awful that it will probably be hilarious. Stoned. I don't much like Bill Maher, but I do like that Bill Maher exists and has a platform on which to vent his spleen. That said, Religulous feels an awful lot like fishing with dynamite. I mean, making fun of the devoutly religious? Is this really cutting edge material?
How to Lose Friends & Alienate People has everything you need in a movie: Simon Pegg, Jeff Bridges and Megan is a Fox. Boy, Toby Young was quite the douche, wasn't he? Fucking Graydon Carter deserved it. Criminal-dating, anal sex-loving Anne Hathaway stars in Rachel Getting Married. What the hell has Jonathan Demme been up to? Flash of Genius is the story of the man who fought corporate America over his idea to create intermittent windshield wipers. This is a movie? As an Airplane and Naked Gun nut, it hurts my heart to say that David Zucker has completely lost it. Forget the politics--An American Carol just looks unfunny.
