Witty, urbane and thoroughly entertaining, "The Kids Are All Right" is an ode to the virtues of family, in this case a surprisingly conventional one even with its two moms, two kids and one sperm donor. Whatever your politics, between peerless performances, lyrical direction and an adventurous script, this is the sort of pleasingly grown-up fare all too rare in the mainstream daze of this very dry summer. Before delving into the layered perfection of Annette Bening, Julianne Moore and Mark Ruffalo, let's start by getting past any hesitations or reservations about the lesbian household premise on which "The Kids Are All Right" is based.

The movie almost wasn't ready for the Sundance Film Festival -- an addition so late its place was held in the schedule as "Surprise Premiere 2." But everyone in town knew the last-minute movie was filmmaker Lisa Cholodenko's "The Kids Are All Right," and as soon as the film finished playing in a packed screening Monday night, the Annette Bening-Julianne Moore movie became the talk of the town. Like some of the most popular Sundance movies, "The Kids Are All Right" takes a conventional movie genre -- in this case, the domestic comedy -- and piles on independent film attitude and sharp dialogue, along with some frank sexuality.

A remake of the 1984 film of the same name, the new "Red Dawn" arrives in theaters following years of delays involving bankruptcy and a switch of the film's central villains from the Chinese to North Koreans. If the original, with its premise of American teenagers fighting off a Russian invasion, was something like "The Outsiders Fight Back" steeped in last-gasp Cold War anxiety, this update never finds an equivalent relevance or hook, failing to connect fully with our here and now. While a foreign regime exerting its emergent power over America certainly has a familiar ring to it, if anything, this new "Red Dawn" is a movie in search of its moment.

Looks as if Jennifer Lawrence and her on-screen alias have a little heroism in common. The actress, who played fierce warrior Katniss Everdeen in "The Hunger Games," saw an underage girl collapsed in front of her Santa Monica apartment building Monday evening, TMZ reported Tuesday. Wearing a black camisole, gray leggings and flip flops - she'd reportedly been walking her dog - the 21-year-old waited with concerned neighbors until the girl was treated and released from care on-site.

Katniss Everdeen gets her golden mockingjay pin as a gift in “The Hunger Games,” but fans will have to shell out $999 to score a replica of the token on Target's website. The retailer, in a partnership with the Lionsgate studio, is making 100 of the 14-carat pins that it is selling in conjunction with the DVD and Blu-ray release of the “Hunger Games” film. Seems like an expensive way to commemorate a hardscrabble character from an impoverished district? Target is also offering 100 leather “Katniss” hunting jackets for $349 each.
