Here's the trailer for Melinda and Melinda, Woody Allen's new movie. "Melinda and Melinda combines romantic comedy and drama in a way that Woody Allen, unique among filmmakers, likes to contrast. It takes place in Manhattan and chronicles a pair of crises that give great reign to the funny and serious talents of Chiwetel Ejiofor, Will Ferrell, Jonny Lee Miller, Radha Mitchell, Amanda Peet, Chloe Sevigny and Wallace Shawn. All the usual Allen areas are explained - the fragility of love, marital infidelity, sophisticated romance, the inability to communicate. As a character in the movie puts it, 'He's despondent, he's desperate, he's suicidal. All the comic elements are in place.'"

Noted MENSA candidate Natasha Lyonne "was arrested Friday night at her Manhattan home after she allegedly made menacing remarks to a neighbor's pet." Only in Manhattan would there be a law against making menacing remarks to a dog. Explanation, just in case you're wondering: I've committed the fallacy of post hoc ergo propter hoc. Obviously she wasn't arrested FOR talkin' trash to a puppy. She was arrested for a real crime AFTER talkin' trash to a puppy. I'm guessing her mattress tags weren't in order. My quote from the article is accurate, but misleading. It's just that I love the idea of the NYPD's elite SWAT unit gathering outside with bullhorns and choppers and tear gas to force the surrender of an obscure actress who made menacing remarks to a dog.

The trailer for the Scandinavian comedy The Green Butchers : "'The Green Butchers' is a comedy that combines the trite, the morbid and the amusing. Bjarne and Svend are pals. Svend has great ambition driven by an equally great inferiority complex, while Bjarne hardly cares about anything else at all apart from Astrid, his girlfriend. Starting their own butcher shop enables them to escape from their vicious boss, Holger, but the shop doesn't do well until a bizarre coincidence leads Svend to concoct a new dish for their organic butcher shop. Business takes off, but will they still be able to obtain the ingredients for this special dish?"

Onw of the best trailers I've ever seen. A decent little short movie in its own right. The trailer from Ron Howard's latest, Cinderella Man: "Russell Crowe stars in the story inspired by the life of legendary athlete Jim Braddock, a once-promising light heavyweight boxer forced into retirement after a string of losses in the ring. As the nation enters the darkest years of the Great Depression, Braddock accepts a string of dead-end jobs to support his wife, Mae (Renee Zellweger), and their children, while never totally abandoning his dream of boxing again. Thanks to a last minute cancellation, Braddock finds himself back in the ring against the second-ranked world contender--and to everyone's amazement, Braddock wins in the third round. Despite being pounds lighter than his opponents and repeated injuries to his hands, Braddock continues to fight against challengers and win. Carrying on his shoulders the hopes and dreams of the disenfranchised masses, Braddock, dubbed the 'Cinderella Man,' faces his toughest challenger in Max Baer (Craig Bierko), the heavyweight champion of the world, renowned for having killed two men in the ring."

Police suspect a French prosecutor of paying a prostitute with a stolen credit card just hours after addressing a conference on ethics. Damned unethical fool. Everyone knows that the ethical thing to do it to play a prostitute with stolen cash. If you use a stolen CC, she might not get the money, and it would be unethical to use her services for free.
