Released this week: Barnyard, The Devil Wears Prada, Idlewild, Talladega Nights, World Trade Center.
Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby: Inconsistent and completely frivolous, this comedy is also hilarious, thanks to Will Ferrell's willingness to do anything for a joke. Ferrell plays a stock-car racer born to drive.

World Trade Center: In this impressive docudrama, Oliver Stone zeroes in on two men (Nicolas Cage and Michael Pena) trapped in the 9/11 rubble and tells their story with remarkable economy. With them, we are forced to find shards of hope within the hopelessness.
