Mel Gibson continues his long climb back to being a normal movie star this weekend with Edge of Darkness. Having Martin Campbell as a director and William Monaghan as one of two credited screenwriters gets my hopes up a little bit, and reviews have been fairly strong. I'm just not sure if I'll be able to look at Gibson ever again without hearing the phrase "sugar tits." Still, anything with Ray Winstone is at least worth a look, right?

I can't imagine being less excited about a movie than I am about When in Rome. Actually, that's not true because Valentine's Day is still to come unless some deus ex machina intervenes and spares America the horrid fate of seeing it. Nevertheless, it almost hurts to see Kristen Bell, Josh Duhamel, Alexis Dziena, Will Arnett, Keir O'Donnell and Anjelica Huston slumming. All are appealing actors and all have done better work.
