Foster and Winslet join the cast of Polanski's "God of Carnage"

A highlight of my trip to New York City earlier this year was seeing God of Carnage, a broadway show starring Lucy Liu, Janet McTeer, Dylan Baker, and one of my favorite actors, Jeff Daniels. The play takes place on a single set, where two couples meet up after their sons have a fight at school. The sit-down starts out overly civil, then it becomes a shouting match, and eventually everyone self destructs and it all goes to hell. Others liked it too--the play won three Tony awards, including Best Play.

TAKERS is one shaky mess of a heist (review)

Rating:  (Bad)

I saw Takers with a theater full of rowdy, loud women. Midnight showings often bring out the dedicated and hardcore, but these ladies came to see one man. No, not heartthrob Paul Walker, not Michael Ealy, not T.I. They came to see Chris Brown. The moment Brown hit the screen, all I could hear were "woo"s, "aww yeahs", and "mmm mmm"s. Pretty hilarious, really. The ladies made the same sounds later on when Idris Elba (Stringer Bell from The Wire) got out of bed in his underwear. This was not a quiet experience at the theater. 

It's fitting that Takers is about as overblown as its audience. Like all urban heists, all the pieces are in place.
