Early on in writer-director Jessie McCormack's "Expecting" - about female friendship, marriage and pregnancy - there's an unhurried, amiable but tension-filled vibe that suggests Nicole Holofcener's perceptive comedies. Lizzie (Radha Mitchell) wants a baby, her husband, Peter (John Dore), might not, but they accept an offer from Lizzie's caustic kook of a best friend, Andie (Michelle Monaghan) - pregnant after a one-night stand - to hand over Andie's child to them when born. The movie's early promise fades, however, as an Apatowian crassness descends upon the comic situations, churlishness gets mistaken for rawness, and sweetness starts to feel manipulative instead of natural.

With her leading roles, so to speak, in "Melinda and Melinda," Radha Mitchell has joined a select sorority that includes Diane Keaton, Mia Farrow, Judy Davis and Mira Sorvino -- actresses chosen by Woody Allen to bring his complex and funny female characters to life. Mitchell had never met the Oscar-winning auteur when he called to ask if she would play Melinda, the woman around whom he'd woven an intricate, twice-told tale. Startled, the Australian actress thought the call was a prank.

To create a successful antihero, a writer must pull off a narrative sleight of hand, convincing the audience that black is white, or at least an acceptable shade of gray. The trick is to pull it off without getting caught, which is the first failure of ABC's high-aspiring but poorly executed "Red Widow. " In the series, which premieres Sunday, the antihero is Marta Walraven (Radha Mitchell) living the uber Mommy high life in Marin County until her husband is gunned down in her driveway.

"Pitch Black," a routine sci-fi/horror action-adventure, takes us where we've been countless times before--a forbidding distant planet--and offers nothing new along the way. Director David Twohy, who co-wrote the script with Jim and Ken Wheat, seems to understand this because he brings maximum razzle-dazzle and energy to the film, which is certainly the way to go with such trite material, even if ultimately a flashy technique is not enough.
