"Doogal" is the laziest, most disheartening kind of animated film for kids: one that seems interested in entertaining them only on the most fundamental level (through colorful talking animals and flatulence jokes) while frantically cramming in as many pop-culture references as possible to preoccupy their parents.

It is 1:30 a.m. and Aaron Sorkin is slouched in a director's chair, commiserating with Rob Lowe between scenes on the set of "The West Wing." The new NBC drama, which co-stars Lowe as a harried White House speech writer, is one of two shows, along with ABC's "Sports Night," created by Sorkin in his young career as TV's new golden boy. Right now the golden boy is beleaguered and exhausted. Up at dawn, Sorkin has been going at a David E. Kelley-style pace, writing every episode of both shows.

"TNT Screenworks," a TV-movie series created to showcase the work of stage writers, makes a sharp debut today with the startling adaptation of playwright David Mamet's "Water Engine" (TNT at 5, 7 and 9 p.m.). It's astonishing because Mamet's 1977 stage version, a radio-play-within-a-play set entirely in a broadcast studio, remains a muddle next to this wide open, riveting screen treatment, also written by Mamet. Screen adaptations frequently compromise or distort a stage play--but not here.

Stars bundled up. Studio execs forked over cash. Everyone got headaches from altitude (and hangovers). The Sundance Film Festival's opening weekend has come and gone again, leaving a trail of exhausted but excited independent filmmakers and happier, swag-laden celebs. Here's a guide to who partied where in Park City, Utah. Bing Bar: With deep leather couches and three floors of open bars, the Claimjumper Hotel was transformed by search engine Bing to house film junkets, cocktail parties and a performance series that included stand-up from Aziz Ansari and concerts from Cobra Starship, the Civil Wars and the biggest party draw — a 45-minute set from rapper Drake.

Outside the Governors Ball, handlers waited for their celebrities like tour guides awaiting tourists at the airport. Charlie Sheen, this way; Anjelica, over here. Inside, more than 400 Patina waiters in their Mao jackets had been instructed: no stargazing. But that didn't prevent the scuttlebutt -- "420, that's the best table in the house," one waitress said. Clearly, Al and Meryl's. Earlier, at the bar, Ellen DeGeneres had cornered Elaine Stritch.

FOR A TIME, Hollywood was enamored with former NATO commander and Democratic presidential candidate Wesley Clark. He was feted at packed Beverly Hills parties every time he breezed through town. But these days, there's a new military man on the radar: Jim Webb, the Democratic senator from Virginia.
