Awash with amazingly talented actors – Vince Vaughn, Paul Giamatti, Miranda Richardson, Rachel Weisz, Kathy Bates, Kevin Spacey, to name a few – Fred Claus is sadly just an early lump of coal under the tree.

The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada
Tommy Lee Jones has made a modern Western in the culturally askew tradition of Peckinpah, Huston, and Boetticher. Don't let the near-impossible-to-remember title keep you away from this singular and slightly surreal scorcher.

The Traveling Lady
With The Traveling Lady, Different Stages has mounted a pleasant, innocuous little drama by Texas playwright Horton Foote, but while the actors are honest and heartfelt in portraying its awkward, kind-hearted small-town souls, the scenes sometimes play out in ways that betray the intimacy of small-town life.
