Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & & r & Sentinel -- Is that Jack Bauer? On the big screen? Yeah ... we think it's -- no, wait, it's just Keifer Sutherland cashing in on his 24 role. Sutherland plays some sort of federal law-bringer who is charged with finding a man who is plotting to kill the president. He follows the clues straight to -- wait for it -- his boss, the sexily innocent-looking geezer Michael Douglas. Rated PG-13





Friends With Money -- Four longtime pals -- played by Catherine Keener, Joan Cusack, Frances McDormand (who all live very comfortable lives) and Jennifer Aniston (who ekes by as a house cleaner) -- regularly meet to chat and complain. The well-off ones have husbands, while the broke one has as much trouble with men as with money. This is a look at strengths and weaknesses in relationships, and the powerful bond of friendship. Serious matters, often treated with nicely placed humor. (ES) Rated R





Silent Hill -- It's based on a videogame, but it looks like it's got higher production value than your average console-to-silver-screen port. Plus, it's directed by a French dude, Christophe Gans, with at least one good horrorish film under his belt (Brotherhood of the Wolf). Though full of cutting-edge effects, this is really an age-old story: woman loses daughter, woman searches for daughter -- and instead finds the heart of all evil. Rated R.





American Dreamz -- If you wanted to satirize George W. Bush, American Idol and suicide bombers, you might think you'd need to write three separate scripts. American Dreamz, though, explodes that notion. When a dummie president (Dennis Quaid) wants to be a guest judge on a pop idol show called American Dreamz, the Arab contestant (originally brought on for diversity and flava) is coerced into blowing up the POTUS on live TV. Rated PG-13

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
