JIMMY NEUTRON: Boy Genius (6)
My favorite "little gal" and I scurried off to catch this animated feature about a boy genius inventor, who is both responsible for the abduction of all the parents, as well as their return to safety.  There is a strange reference to an Alien God in this film that seems awfully weird to me.  I didn't see the point.  "Little gal" thought the movie was funny.  If it was good enough for her, it was good enough for me--just to get to be with her.  


JOHN Q (8 1/2)
John Q is totally unrealistic in that one man can take a hospital hostage, but hey...John's heart is in the right place.  The whole city thinks so, so it must be so.  Denzel Washington and Kimberly Elise give heartrending performances as grief stricken parents of a child in need of a heart transplant.  James Woods, Robert Duval and Anne Hesche co-star in good although type-cast roles.  John Q dares to ask and answer the age old question: would you give your own life to save someone you love? 
Rusty didn't want to see this one, so he didn't.
