Home Movies This Weekend: Woody Allen, “Howl,” Ben Affleck, Facebook, and Good Teachers!

Moviegoers, this is the weekend you’ve been waiting for. Especially if you’ve been “Waiting for Superman”!

Davis Guggenheim‘s documentary is an extraordinary look into what’s wrong (and right) with the public school system. It will be a strong contended for the Oscar short list, so don’t miss it.

Woody Allen‘s “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” is a film full of hope about love and middle age. Gemma Jones is famous in the UK, sort of the next Judi Dench for America. Her performance is award worthy. It’s balanced by a crazy, funny performance by up-and-comer Lucy Punch. Check out also our Lucy Punch exclusive video at www.youtube.com/showbiz411.

And there’s more: Ben Affleck‘s “The Town” is just terrific. Check out especially Jeremy Renner and Jon Hamm. “The Social Network” is the movie of the weekend. Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield are “overnight sensations.” Justin Timberlake is delicious fun. “Howl” is a B movie  with an A performance by James Franco. But the rest of the cast is also exceptional, from Jon Hamm (again) to Mary Louise Parker, Jeff Daniels, Alessandro Nivola, and David Strathairn.
