Opening Films 

by Inlander Staff & r & BORAT

The funniest film of the year (of the decade?) is also the most politically incorrect. And that's what makes it so funny. Sacha Baron Cohen brings his Kazakhstani TV journalist character, Borat, to the screen in a faux documentary road trip across America. The shtick is that Borat never comes out of character, and meets up with a lot of unsuspecting Americans who aren't brought in on the joke. He's an imbecilic, racist misogynist who has no idea he's doing anything wrong. A special nude sequence will leave you howling. (ES) Rated R


When an uppity mouse finds himself getting flushed down the toilet, he has to learn to live with life in the ol' sewer. It's got the trademark look of Aardman Studios (Wallace and Gromit), but it's CGI (because it's co-produced by Dreamworks, we're guessing) and it doesn't seem very funny (it looks like Nick Park's stuff, but he's not on the project). Rated PG


Hooray for the second biography in as many years of Truman Capote whilst in the throes of writing In Cold Blood. Thinking it'll be a retread of last year's Oscar winning Capote? No way, this one has more parties, gossip and Sandra Bullock. Rated R


There's more fine print in Tim Allen's little Santa contract, and this one says ... well, we're not sure what it says. It certainly doesn't make any sense. Somehow, "the escape clause" means Santa and his (never before seen) nemesis Jack Frost (Martin Short) get to go back in time or something. Rated G
