Ready for a singing and dancing "Reservoir Dogs"? That's what the makers of "Kaante" are hoping India's mass audience is eager to see, and while the Hindi-speaking film industry is looking to the much-delayed movie to give it a boost, it shouldn't count on any crossover appeal. On home ground, however, "Kaante," which translates as "thorn," as in "a thorn in the side," could conceivably connect with its roster of top male stars and mix of violence, schmaltz, fervid songs and flashy imitation of Hollywood crime melodramas.

The diet of modern Americans bears little resemblance to the foods our ancestors ate, and this discrepancy is often noted in discussions about the causes of the current “obesity epidemic.” The argument goes like this: Since fat and sugar were historically hard to come by, our bodies are built to hold on to them to help us get through the lean times. This may have served us well in the caveman days, but not so much in the era of the KFC Double Down sandwich. Dr. David Ludwig, director of the Optimal Weight for Life program at Children's Hospital Boston, takes a fascinating look at how innovations in food technology have backfired for humankind over the millenia in this week’s edition of the Journal of the American Medical Assn.

That's a wrap for Joy Behar, who left ABC's daytime gabfest "The View" on Friday after 16 years. The hourlong farewell included celebrity appearances -- Regis Philbin, Meredith Vieira, Joan Rivers, Alan Alda and others -- as well as a tribute from cohost Barbara Walters, who discovered Behar doing standup at a birthday tribute for Milton Berle. "I have to thank the most important people: My hair and makeup people," Behar joked. "I'll be sexting every one of you in the fall," she told the show's crew.
