Isn't it supposed to be Oscar season? There may not be anything award-worthy this week, just some slick, polished entertainment, in the form of a romantic comedy and two thrillers.

New and Noteworthy: 'Morning Glory'

Starring: Rachel McAdams Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton, Patrick Wilson, Jeff Goldblum
Directed by: Roger Michell
What's It About? McAdams lands a TV producing job at a low-rated morning chat show, where she must manage on-air veterans Keaton (an acerbic diva) and Ford (a grumpy newsman who feels daytime fluff is beneath him). Wilson is along as a love interest, but as in 'The Devil Wears Prada,' this comedy is really about the platonic love-hate relationship between a Manhattan working gal and her prickly mentor (Ford).
Why Should You See It? It's written by Aline Brosh McKenna, the screenwriter behind 'Prada.' It's a rare chance to see Harrison Ford in a comedy. J.J. Abrams produced it. And it features, by all accounts, the sparkling star turn from McAdams we've been awaiting since 'The Notebook.'
You Might Like It If You Like: 'The Devil Wears Prada,' 'Broadcast News,' 'Working Girl,' 'The Mary Tyler Moore Show.'

Staying In This Weekend?

New on DVD This Week: Even though the geekosphere totally grokked 'Scott Pilgrim vs. the World,' the mass of moviegoers were indifferent to this comic-book-derived saga of a swain (Michael Cera) who must battle his inamorata's numerous supervillainous ex-boyfriends. But the innovative, videogame-inspired battles should look right at home on your TV. Buy the DVD | 10 Reasons Edgar Wright Wants You to See 'Scott Pilgrim' on DVD (VIDEO) | More new DVD releases

Movie Homework, Part 1: Probably no one will confuse the frothy 'Morning Glory' with a harder-hitting backstage look at the TV news business like 'Network.' Still, it's worth revisiting the 1976 satire, with its eerily prescient predictions about reality TV, populist demagoguery, corporate manipulation, and anything-for-a-Nielsen-uptick shamelessness. Buy or rent the DVD

Movie Homework, Part 2: 'Morning Glory's' Rachel McAdams and Diane Keaton have worked together before, in the ensemble dramedy 'The Family Stone.' Keaton is the cancer-stricken matriarch trying to straighten out the lives of her unhappy adult children before she dies. McAdams is one of her kids, a bitter singleton who gets an unlikely Christmas present in the form of a discarded ex-boyfriend. Watch, chuckle, and weep. Buy or rent the DVD

On My Netflix Queue: In memory of my father-in-law, it's time to revisit one of his favorites, 1954's 'The Wild One,' in which the impossibly young Marlon Brando and Lee Marvin are bikers raising hell in a small town - and setting the standards for masculine cool and toughness for decades to come.
