Movie Reviews: What To Watch This Month

CHARLIE BARTLETT


First-time director Jon Poll nails this comedy about a privileged kid (Anton Yelchin) who is sent to public school and wins over his classmates with his charm, wit, and access to psychiatric drugs. Robert Downey Jr. is hilarious as the alcoholic principal (stretch, huh?) set on making Bartlett's life miserable, but we found ourselves rooting for the adorable, blue-eyed 17-year-old with the zeal of a love-struck cheerleader.

First-time director Charles Ferguson lays it out for us, splicing clear evidence of the Bush administration's gross missteps with Rummy's bald-faced denials of them. If Ferguson's goal was to make each of us think twice about getting ourselves into another "bloodless" war . . . mission accomplished.
