Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff


Anchorman -- Will Ferrell (insert laugh track here) is back after his triumphant performance in Elf. Talk about an Oscar snub! Ferrell, who co-wrote this script, plays a '70s-era TV anchorman who gets a big old can of women's lib opened on him when a new hire at the station (Christina Applegate) decides she wants to do more than giggle at his before-the-commercial banter. This one looks good for its supporting cast, too, which includes the likes of Steve Carell (The Daily Show), Fred Willard (Best in Show), rapper Chuck D and Maya Rudolph (Saturday Night Live). Rated: PG-13





Sleepover -- It's the last day of school, and Julie (Spy Kids' Alexa Vega) is having a sleepover. Eager to prove that she and her friends are a force to be reckoned with, Julie challenges the popular girls (who crash the slumber party) to a scavenger hunt that involves, among other things, stealing a car, sneaking into clubs and kissing boys. Let the giggling and shrieking begin... Rated: PG





King Arthur -- There's nothing like approaching a familiar -- make that legendary -- story, and taking liberties with it to the extent that you come up with something brand-new. That's what's happened with the tale of future king Arthur -- here it's said that he was Italian, but fought in Britain -- his knights and his Lady Guinevere (here she's a vicious fighter as well as a hot lover). And the result is a surprisingly refreshing movie -- very violent, but with a minimum of onscreen blood, stunningly photographed and edited. Is this the way it really happened? Better yet, did Arthur really exist? (ES) Rated PG-13





Super Size Me -- Reality bites, particularly when you eat nothing but McDonald's for 30 days. New York TV producer Morgan Spurlock takes it in the gut with humorous and appalling results; he's got more questions than answers about nutrition and commerce in this day and age, but they're very, very good questions. At the Met. (RP) Not Rated
