UPDATED: Stars unite to help Haiti in telethon

NEW YORK (AP) -- Though the all-star telethon was titled "Hope for Haiti Now," for most of its two hours, it was filled with tear-jerking, depressing moments, from mournful songs and grim-faced pleas from celebrities to the suffering faces of the quake-battered victims themselves.

It took Haiti's own native son to lift Friday evening's despairing tone to one of hope and even revival as the two-hour broadcast came to a close.

"The Democrats in Sacramento aren't listening. The people don't want a government run healthcare system.

Review: 'Tooth Fairy'

In the pantheon of such legends as Santa Claus and the Bogeyman, the Tooth Fairy ranks down in the minor leagues, I'd say, with Jack Frost and the Easter Bunny. There is a scene in "Tooth Fairy" when the hero is screamed at by his girlfriend for even BEGINNING to suggest to her 6-year-old that there isn't a Tooth Fairy, but surely this is a trauma a child can survive. Don't kids simply humor their parents to get the dollar?

Review: 'Extraordinary Measures'

"Extraordinary Measures" is an ordinary film with ordinary characters in a story too big for it. Life has been reduced to a Lifetime movie. The story, based on fact, is compelling: Two sick children have no more than a year to live when their father determines to seek out a maverick scientist who may have a cure. This is "Lorenzo's Oil" with a different disease, Pompe disease, although it fudges the facts to create a better story. The film centers on two dying children, 9 and 7.
