No easy answers for next budget shortfall

Columbus, OH – A special panel of Ohio legislators is trying to grapple with the projected $4 billion to $8 billion hole in the next state budget. The commission held its second meeting this week and heard about what their counterparts in other states have been doing to fill their money shortfalls. As statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports, that information wasn't particularly re-assuring to the Ohio lawmakers.

    Micmacs

    Revenge is sweet.

    For a summer bereft of bright comedy (Exhibit A?Grownups, B?Get Him to the Greek), the French Micmacs is a beacon. The title probably deriving from the Algonquin term for "allies," this farce/caper has a band of scruffy junk yard rebels creating havoc for two arms dealers who may have been responsible for protagonist Bazil (Danny Boon) receiving a stray bullet to the noggin as well as his father bring blown apart by a land mine.

    The Endangered

    Smart Tale

    "Evil is the nature of mankind."

    Nathaniel Hawthorne's "Young Goodman Brown"

    A minimalist thriller in one respect, then classy allegory in another, The Endangered spreads the guilt for racism generously between whites and blacks while spending its brief time on the bare bones of a problematic murder set in a faux New England village (Granville, Ohio), fitting to a Hawthorne world of sin and retribution.

    Mom

    Oedipal Complicated

    "It's great to have a new dad." Cyrus to John


    If your girlfriend has a grown son living at home, see Cyrus; if you have one living with you, see it. For the rest of us, see Cyrus to enjoy American ensemble acting at its best: Molly (Marisa Tomei) and her 21-year old son, Cyrus (Jonah Hill), live in a very close relationship short of Oedipal but too close for either's growth.

    Despicable Me

    Gru will win you.

    Gru: "We are going to pull of the TRUE crime of the century... we are going to steal the MOON!"


    Although Despicable Me winks at behemoth Pixar with a little robot like the Pixar desk lamp before the titles, Despicable Me does one better in the cynical category.
