The Weekend Warrior looks at the upcoming weekend. Thre are three new high-profile films this week, and the phenomenon Mad Black Woman will offer additional competition by expanding to several hundred more screens. Warrior thinks Be Cool will rule the school, while last week's disappointing "Cursed" will nosedive straight into the crapper.

Urban Legends: Actor/director Clint Eastwood is the son of comic Stan Laurel. Status: False. This reminds me of the jury's veridct in The Producers. "Your honor, we find the defendants incredibly guilty." Not just false, but incredibly false. Call me crazy, but the fact that he is Clinton Eastwood, Jr. tends to get me thinkin' that his dad might have had the same name. Just a thought.

Four clips and the trailer from Calvaire, a new horror film from Belgium, in French. The usual set-up. A singer's car breaks down deep in the woods. Rainy night. Finds hotel run by inbred locals. "Sex with livestock." Everything goes wrong.

This week's movies: The Pacifier - no reviews available.. I suppose this movie is to Vin Diesel as Kindergarten Cop is to Ah-nuld. It is rated PG.

Out of left field: Diary of a Mad Black Woman is a phenomenon - it won the Weekend Box Office last week, although only on 1500 screens!
  • It tripled its predictions! It succeeded by serving an underserved audience - grown women. According to Lions Gate exit surveys, 74 percent of Diary's audience was female and 72% was over the age of 25.
  • Meanwhile, "Cursed" - which was expected to battle for first place - finished a distant fourth, and pulled in only about half of the predicted amount.
  • Hitch continued to roll with another great weekend, and passed the $100 million mark.

This week's movies: The Jacket - 43% positive reviews. The score doesn't mean much (it's based on seven reviews.) Some reviewers really liked this "time-warp" mystery with Adrian Brody and Keira Knightley. I'm curious about it myself.
