Product placement apparently isn't cutting it in the movie business anymore. Not satisfied, say, with a mere passing shot of a mega-star munching a Whopper, Burger King is developing a film whose main character lives above one of its burger franchises, according to a story in this week's Advertising Age, a trade magazine. No, it's not a horror film. And it's also not going to be what would seem the natural sequel to 2004's nutty teenage comedy "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle."

With an estimated take of $50.8 million, M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" delivered Disney's best debut of the year by far, more than double the biggest of its previous 2004 openings, "Miracle" ($19.4 million). Relishing the break in a streak of disappointments, Disney execs also pointed out the figure was a company best for a movie opening in July, surpassing even the $46.6-million first weekend for last year's "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl."

January 29, 2007 | Josh Ozersky, JOSH OZERSKY, a.k.a. "Mr. Cutlets," is the online food editor for New York Magazine and author of the forthcoming "Hamburgers: A Cultural History."
THE HAMBURGER is America's iconic sandwich, a sizzling symbol recognized from China to Peru. With all due respect to the bustling port city of Hamburg, Germany, a dish of chopped or minced beef (which that city's residents, and others, have been eating for centuries) is not the same as the sandwich we think of as the quintessential American invention. And now the perennial question of who invented the hamburger is in the news again.

Though fast-food restaurants tout that a large proportion of their managers started in entry-level positions, a report released Thursday by the National Employment Law Project finds that few fast-food workers join management ranks.   The group, which advocates on behalf of low-wage workers, said there is limited opportunity for advancement at fast-food restaurants. Analyzing data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the report found that about 2% of jobs in the industry are classified as "managerial, professional or technical occupations.

Where to eat dinner used to be a relatively simple choice: Either head to the grocery store to pick up the fixings or make tracks to a restaurant. But the line between groceries and eateries is blurring as more restaurants try to build revenue by selling their most popular menu items in grocery stores.

You're always telling your mother you owe her. Now, the American Coalition for Labor Reparations has a worksheet you can use to calculate exactly how much back pay Mom deserves. Here's the logic: “Every laborer deserves a wage. Your mother went into labor for you and has never been repaid.” We should mention that the coalition doesn't exist for most of the year - it's a gag dreamed up by ad agency Mother New York. There's even a faux PSA video featuring a crew of mothers - some describing pretty graphic scenarios.
