    5 Not-So-Thinly Veiled Remakes

    Based on the trailer alone, the new road trip comedy "Due Date" has enough similarities to John Hughes' sentimental 1987 hit "Planes, Trains & Automobiles" to have had the majority of the blogosphere immediately calling out its apparent unoriginality. Some critics also mentioned the rehash of certain elements from director Todd Phillips' prior release, "The Hangover," but it's the classic Steve Martin and John Candy team-up that comes to mind most with this pairing of Robert Downey Jr. and Zach Galifianakis as an odd couple forced to travel cross-country together, the fat guy annoying the skinny guy every step of the way.

    After Dark, My Sweet: Pedro Costa's "Ne change rien"

    No mere documentary, Portuguese director Pedro Costa’s enthralling Ne change rien is a cinematic offering laid at the feet of its bewitching singer-star, Jeanne Balibar. She’s glimpsed at music rehearsals, live club performances, and in studio sessions, meticulously honing vocal phrases and adjusting tempo with exactly the same attention to precision that Costa brings to his own rigorously arranged compositions. The lithe, luminous actress has a robust career in France, where she’s appeared in films by Jacques Rivette (Va savoir) and Arnaud Desplechin (My Sex Life... ) as well as numerous theater productions. She also moonlights as a chanteus...
