Macaulay Culkin has bright red candy lips in "George Balanchine's The Nutcracker" (citywide). They're practically phosphorescent. They could turn out to be the most famous pop star lips since Mick Jagger's. Clearly this is not the insight one is supposed to take away from this film.

The $130-million Old Testament epic, starring Russell Crowe as the title character, debuted in about 3,000 theaters before launching its full 3,500-theater run on Friday.  A $1.6-million take is slightly more than the $1.4 million that Alfonso Cuaron's "Gravity" generated from its Thursday evening bow last October.

"The Man Who Knew Too Little" is too little, too late. At a time when the James Bond franchise struggles to keep au courant, a sendup of those Cold War spy capers of the '60s and '70s requires considerable imagination. Unfortunately, Bill Murray, Joanne Whalley, Peter Gallagher and Alfred Molina can't make a dent in this stale and hopelessly contrived comedy.
