The next film up for discussion in the Independent Film Forum will be Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian. Does the sequel to the 2006 family hitmovie, starring Ben Stiller, really warrant another night at the movies? And does former indie queen Amy Adams (above) as his love interest create any sizzling chemistry? Add your comments and we'll print the best in next week's paper

You can just about make out an interesting film underneath this one, rather as Jennifer Aniston's bone structure remains discernible underneath overstretched skin (nothing ages you half as much as trying too hard to look young).

Barack Obama can count himself lucky. His much younger half-brother George has caused a flutter by getting arrested for marijuana possession. But on the Richter scale of sibling embarrassments, this one is a barely discernable tremor.

The US cop show Starsky & Hutch is fondly remembered for its high-speed car chases and its gritty storylines as well as the good looks and banter between its stars Paul Michael Glaser and David Soul. However, the Seventies TV series also proved culturally significant because of the inspired casting of two African-American actors: Antonio Fargas as Huggy Bear, the streetwise informer who provided much of the comedy, and Bernie Hamilton, as Capt Harold Dobey, the no-nonsense boss attempting to rein in the main characters.

Last year, Heigl co-starred in Knocked Up with Seth Rogen, directed by Judd Apatow. Since then, Rogen and Apatow have collaborated on Superbad, co-writing and producing respectively, and they've done the same jobs on Drillbit Taylor, starring Owen Wilson. Its three nerdy heroes are almost identical to the ones in Superbad, only now, instead of coming to the end of their high school careers, they're at the beginning. Targeted by bullies on their first day, they decide to hire a bodyguard, and give the job to a homeless veteran, Wilson, who claims to have been discharged from the army for "unauthorised heroism". He keeps an eye on his charges by posing as a substitute teacher, but he soon has his other eye on a genuine teacher, Leslie Mann.
