It takes a lot of effort to take the underdog stomping grounds of New York's top punk acts and turn them into the Central Perk from “Friends”—albeit with slightly more stain—but “CBGB” does it with total conviction. This isn't necessarily a bad thing; we've long passed the ellipses of punk's heyday, and seen the paunchy transformation of many of its leaders into contradictive shills. So in telling the tale of Hilly Krystal, the club's unlikely founder played here by Alan Rickman, director Randall Miller (“Bottle Shock”) could do worse than render the early-'70s punk scene as breezy broad comedy. He adopts that tactic and still falters though, deflating any energy or humor possible with his limp direction, sitcom consistency, and unfocused tone.

One gets flummoxed when forced to discuss something like “Jewtopia,” the existence of which we’d all like to disavow. Based on the sort of off-Broadway play best suited to people who hate theater, this embarrassing cocktail of racial obliviousness nonetheless has amassed a considerable cast of established names to sully themselves for the sake of gags that would be booed out of the writer’s room for a Chuck Lorre sitcom. So it’s got that going for it: if you like moderately big names regardless of the context, then “Jewtopia” merits a hearty recommendation.

Some actors strive to create a diverse array of work, dipping toes in multiple genres, disappearing in a vast array of different characters. And then there are others who find their niche and stick with it. Such is the case of Joel David More. The tall, skinny geek from "Avatar," who will play a dweeb in "Shark Night 3D" has lined up another dorky part.
