The ball that inspired this movie

August 4

Matt Damon plays a golf pro and Will Smith plays his mystical caddy. I'd say more, but I think I've already sold you on this one. With Charlize Theron as Ashley Judd.

Buzz: Maximum Golf raves, "a home-run of a film." Will Smith calls it the most daringly black role he has ever played, except for the robot on Small Wonder.*

Web Bonus: "Bigger and Bagger," the hit song by Will Smith. Download the MP3 or Buy the CD!

*Will Smith was not the robot on Small Wonder.

That loveably Jewish mouse, Fievel Mousekewitz, returns to face his most thrilling adventure yet—his own bris. Escaping just in time, Fievel travels to a small Baptist community where all the kids get second helpings of ice cream, and foreskins can grow as big as trees. With Billy Crudup as Fievel’s father, Jesus H. Mousekewitz.

Best Line: "Dad, why is it called a foreskin if I’ve only got one of them?"

An easy ride at the box-office—no other major Jewish-themed cartoon musicals are scheduled this summer.

Web Bonus: At, fans will be able to vote on whether it’s better to be Jewish or Christian. Site operators will deliver the results to the President of the United States.

Wench Judi Dench

June 9

Always the stickler for historical accuracy, Kenneth Branagh insisted that this Shakespeare comedy be filmed entirely with handheld cameras from the 16th century–something he swears to have "read about in a magazine on an airplane."

Buzz: Gorgeous scenery and strong acting, but the film is rumored to be between 5 and 62 hours long and to reside entirely in Kenneth Branagh’s mind.

Web Bonus: Branagh is shooting a documentary for about the making of "Love’s Labour’s Lost," using only string and dog blood.
