"The Lincolns of Springfield," is a musical play about the lives of Abraham and Mary Todd Lincoln. It is rich with melodies and songs and can be enjoyed by the entire family. There are expressions of familial love, Lincoln-esque humor and a rendition of American history.
Nia Vardalos plays most of "My Life in Ruins" with a fixed toothpaste smile, which is no wonder because her acting in the film feels uncomfortably close to her posing for a portrait.

Now this is what I'm talkin' about. "The Hangover" is a funny movie, flat out, all the way through. Its setup is funny. Every situation is funny. Most of the dialogue is funny almost line-by-line. At some point we actually find ourselves caring a little about what happened to the missing bridegroom -- and the fact that we almost care is funny, too.
"Land of the Lost" is a seriously deranged movie. That's not to say it's bad, although some of its early critics consider it a hanging offense ("a pot of ersatz dinosaur piss" - Peter Keough, Boston Phoenix). Marshall Fine even apologizes for prematurely predicting that "Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian" would be "the most witless, humor-challenged movie of the summer." The release inspires fervent hatred, which with the right kind of movie can be a good thing.

FRAIJANES, Guatemala (AP) - For years, Hernan Argueta's small plot of coffee plants seemed immune to the fungus spreading elsewhere in Central America.
