Senator Strickland challenges Prisoner Release Order

Sacramento, CA - State Senator Tony Strickland (R-Thousand Oaks) and fellow lawmakers today announced they will appeal the Prisoner Release Order issued by the federal Three-Judge Court. A notice of appeal will be filed on Sept. 3, 2009. As intervenors in the litigation underlying the Prisoner Release Order issued by the court, the legislators said the court panel set an egregious precedent by usurping California's jurisdiction over itd prisoners and prison healthcare, and failed to comply with the federal Prison Litigation Reform Act.

Review: 'Extract'

Granted that they're now human beings and not cartoons, Mike Judge's characters may never grow much smarter than Beavis and Butthead, who launched him on his career. The people in "Extract" are not as stupid as the ones in "Idiocracy" (2006), his previous film, but then those idiots had the benefit of a few hundred extra years during which to refute Darwin by evolving less intelligence. The "Extract" people work in a bottling plant that's up for sale when everything goes wrong in the life of its owner, Joel (Jason Bateman, of "Juno").

Review: 'All About Steve'

It is not much fun to laugh at a crazy person. None, I would say. Sandra Bullock plays a character who is bonkers in "All About Steve," which is billed as a comedy but more resembles a perplexing public display of irrational behavior. Seeing her run around as a basket case makes you appreciate Lucille Ball, who could play a dizzy dame and make you like her. Overacting is risky even in a screwball comedy. Perhaps especially.
