Chicken Little (G)
Like many Disney films over the years, Chicken Little is a message movie. And the message is this: "Hey, Pixar, we'll show you that we don't really need you!" Perhaps Chicken Little seems disappointing because its characters and unique, off-kilter art design showed such potential to set the movie apart from the gear-grinding machinations of other Pixar wannabes. Pixar's genius always has been the ability to integrate strong stories with its humor and adventure; Chicken Little merely slaps them together side-by-side. -- Scott Renshaw

Flightplan (PG-13)
The notion of hide-and-seek within a jetliner is intriguing and buys the film some decent moments. With Flightplan, we get to see what happens when a passenger loses it and starts running up and down the aisles mid-flight. If it were anyone but Jodie Foster, we might be tempted to laugh. But because it's Jodie Foster, mother of steel, this ain't no laughing matter. -- Kathryn Eastburn

Good Night, and Good Luck. (PG)
Filmed in gritty but handsome black-and-white and directed by George Clooney, Good Night, and Good Luck. shines a light on television's power to expose evil, and television networks' ultimate failure to sustain that challenge. The son of a Cincinnati television anchorman and a confessed news junkie, Clooney tells the story of one of America's great newsmen, Edward R. Murrow (David Strathairn), with control and economy, bringing in this little jewel of a film at under $8 million. -- Kathryn Eastburn
