Death At the Funeral got excellent set-design (check the furniture) and good camerawork, spoilt by a story that exposes its rot halfway-through and worsens near the end. On a political note, it's sad that the movie perpetuates the idea that homosexuality as disgusting and embarrassing :-(

I was pleasantly surprised of the excellence that is The A-Team. It's filled with superb and never-before-seen action, interesting characters (my favorite is the smart, tough, and villainous gunman), and good storyline. [update]

Knight & Day, a half-serious secret agent story with a romantic touch, is similar to Mr. & Mrs Smith (but not nearly as good). It's got nice action and an uninteresting Tom Cruise, but Cameron Diaz is a what-a-doll!
