What would you do for $500? For $15,000? For $250,000? That's the engine behind "Cheap Thrills," which begins as a simple "guy walks into a bar" story and snowballs into a mind-blowing little horror show. Directed with screw-tightening efficiency by E.L. Katz, from a savvy, wildly twisted script by Trent Haaga and David Chirchirillo, this nervy morality tale finds cautious, financially strapped family man Craig (Pat Healy) running into a former high school friend, the sketchy Vince (Ethan Embry)

DALLAS  -- Danny Granger was the latest of the Clippers to go down, suffering a strained left hamstring in the fourth quarter that forced him from the game against the Dallas Mavericks on Thursday night. Granger said he will be reevaluated Friday and is listed as day to day. Granger was injured when Vince Carter came under him and forced the Clippers forward to twist his body. "He hit me and spun me sideways," Granger said. "I walked in the [locker room] and we tested it. It was strong, just some pain.

Raymond De Felitta's screwball farce " City Island" introduces us to the Rizzos, a boisterous party of four living in the tradition-steeped, seaside spit of Bronx real estate of the movie's title. The Rizzos don't talk to each other much and when they do, the neighbors undoubtedly hear every word. But deep down, we're meant to understand, they shout because they care. The Rizzos also harbor secrets. Corrections officer Vince ( Andy Garcia) tells wife Joyce ( Julianna Margulies) that he's out playing poker when he's really taking acting classes in Manhattan.

In the spring of 1969, two young friends, F-100 pilots, battled the late night traffic on the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The missions were not a walk in the park, and thus were voluntary. The older jocks with families all believed that if God had wanted man to fly at night, he would have been born with a flashing red beacon on his butt. Vince and Jerry, young gung-ho sons of the heartland, driven by God, duty, honor and country, volunteered.

It took Dutch filmmaker Frans Hofmeester's daughter Lotte 12 years to grow from a full-cheeked infant to a coy 12-year-old girl on the brink of adolescence. But you can watch this incredible (and inevitable) evolution take place in less than three minutes, thanks to Hofmeester's video "Lotte Time Lapse: Birth to 12 years in 2 min. 45. " Hoffmeester filmed his daughter once a week, every week, since her birth in October 1999. As she was about to enter adolescence, he decided it was time to share this visual history of his daughter's growth with the world.

"Tape," being presented by the Naked Angels at the Coast Playhouse, made such a splash when it ran off-Broadway that it was recently made into a film with Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman. It's easy to see why playwright Stephen Belber's "Rashomon"-like story of friendship, drugs and betrayal filled seats during an extended run in New York.

Prosecutors in the Randy Steven Kraft murder trial say a paper with 61 entries, found in his car trunk when he was arrested May 14, 1983, is a death list--Kraft's own score card of how many young men he had killed dating back to late 1971. Kraft's attorneys deny it is a death list, and call it meaningless information that will only inflame his jury. Kraft himself, in a 1983 interview, called the list nothing more than references to friends of his and his roommate at the time.

Vince Young made $34 million in his six years as an NFL quarterback. Last week, the 30-year-old Young filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. “[Young] invested in private, illiquid investments, and he overspent,” said Ed Butowsky, a Dallas financial adviser who contributed to an ESPN Films documentary about the money woes of pro athletes. “He's ultimately responsible for all his decisions, but the people around him should have taken better care of him. The petition, filed in a Houston federal bankruptcy court, lists his estimated assets between $500,001 and $1 million and liabilities between $1,001,000 and $10 million.

The greatest of all holiday specials, " A Charlie Brown Christmas ," is on ABC at 8 tonight [Thursday]. (It's also available to stream free via Hulu.) Last year, I wrote about its music, which is some of my favorite music of all time. Unable to restate it any better, I offer the story again here. It's here. The holiday season. And with it, an ever-creeping onslaught of music stuffed with enough synthetic cheer to weave a polyester overcoat for Dodger Stadium. Hearing such tidings of great joy seems innocent enough, but repeated exposure could very well cause outbreaks of seasonal affective disorder on sunny days.

School: Cypress High Sport: Basketball Position: Guard Class: Senior Earlier this season, Laguana, a sharp-shooting point guard, was having some problems with scoring consistently because defenders were overplaying his outside shot. Standing only 5 feet 7, Laguana was reluctant to drive and risk having his shots blocked inside. But Cypress Coach Kevin Loftus says Laguana has worked on his drive and improved his game. "He's had a few shots blocked but he's more comfortable with it," Loftus said.
