"Without a Paddle," a low-hanging, late-summer comedy starring Seth Green, Matthew Lillard and Dax Shepard, owes more than just its title to a toilet-related idiom. Halfway up the creek, our heroes encounter a pair of tree-dwelling preservationists whose strict adherence to the Outward Bound pledge to "leave no trace" unexpectedly saves them during an ambush. Also, the familiar expression about the self-evidence of ursine bathroom habits acts as a hinge for a major plot point later.

For years, they belonged to the legion of aspiring screenwriters who schlep laptops to cafes, swap story ideas over lattes and sleep in cheap motels. But now when Jay Leggett and Mitch Rouse drive away from their favorite Starbucks, a large sign on Melrose Avenue tells them they're no longer up the proverbial Hollywood creek. "It's heartwarming," Leggett says of seeing the billboard advertising "Without a Paddle," a good-natured comedy adventure with a screenplay he and Rouse co-wrote.

Something of a Waterloo in Williams' career, the still-problematic "Camino Real" (pronounced "KA-minnow reel") baffled 1953 audiences with its kaleidoscopic journey through a surreal landscape densely populated with archetypes from different periods of Western civilization.
