The week's big, buzzy cameo was Ricky Gervais crossing paths with Steve Carrell on The Office, as Gervais' David Brent from the original British series met his American counterpart, Michael Scott. But another, funnier cameo snuck in under the radar: Robert DeNiro turned up on 30 Rock playing himself, in a scene funnier than anything in The Little Fockers or his recent SNL appearance.

This is even more Sundance at home than I expected: my flight from New York was cancelled yesterday, and although the Sundance staff tried hard, there was no way to book another that would have gotten me to Park CIty in time to moderate today's panel on “The Power of Story.” (And I thought it was a joke when someone told me Delta stands for “Don’t Ever Leave the Airport.”) But we can all catch the live-stream.

Why did Danel Radcliffe choose the musical revival How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying as his next Broadway show? Equus was a creaky revival too, but that choice was obvious: he got to be extremely dramatic (not to mention famously naked). Maybe he just wants to sing and dance.

One of the best little thrillers I’ve seen lately is Espion(s) (translated with bizarre spelling as a Spy(ies) ) with charismatic Guillaume Canet as a baggage handler blackmailed into working for MI-5 in London, helping them trap a businessman smuggling explosives from Damascus. It’s a highlight among a promising group of French films, none shown in the U.S. before, available online as part of My French Film Festival.

Christmas Oddity # 2 : Mr. Magoo Sings Dickens on Broadway

Don’t scoff at Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol before you hear the conceit of this 1962 animated feature: Magoo is starring on Broadway in a musical version of Dickens’ classic. Three minutes in, the Magoo character vanishes into his portrayal of Scrooge, and you might as well be watching a first-rate Broadway show. There are memorable songs by Jule Styne and Bob Merrill (Funny Girl and other hit shows). And the story, which stays pretty true to Dickens – all the ghosts are there -- is funny and affecting. Magoo plays Scrooge straight, and turns out to be one of the better versions around. The film has its kitschy elements, but what Broadway musical doesn’t? It’s also as cheerful and heart-warming as Christmas is meant to be.
