Woody Allen's "To Rome with Love" looks more like "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" than "Midnight in Paris," which is bad news. It would be difficult to top the charm of "Midnight," even with a luscious Penelope Cruz.

Trailer Watch: Sorkin's 'The Newsroom' Punches America in the Face

Keith Olbermann anyone? Actually, Jeff Daniels' news anchor, at the start of Aaron Sorkin's new HBO series "The Newsroom" (June 24), is an upstanding objective news anchor without political bias until he completely loses it--under video grilling that goes viral. Like Peter Finch in Sidney Lumet's 1976 "Network," he's mad as hell and he isn't going to take it anymore. Daniels ("The Squid and the Whale") is a terrific actor; I first met him at the start of his career, playing Debra Winger's husband Flap, on the set of "Terms of Endearment" in 1982.

Jennifer Lawrence's 'House at the End of the Street' Looks Regrettable (Video)

It's a good thing Jennifer Lawrence's "The Hunger Games" is a hit, because her horror rite-of-passage, "House at the End of the Street," looks awful and all-too familiar. Lawrence will do far more for the film than it will do for her career when Relativity releases it September 21.
