Wouldn’t it be nice to jet off to an exotic location the moment your life turned sour? The Holiday, directed by Nancy Meyers (Something’s Gotta Give, Baby Boom), takes on this idea. As Iris (Kate Winslet) and Amanda (Cameron Diaz) simultaneously reach crossroads in their love lives, they find each other on a home-exchange Website and swap houses—and countries—for two weeks. While both women think they’re vacationing from love and all its disappointments, it ends up finding them anyway.

If you think this is a story about a horse, you’re only halfway there. On the surface, Flicka is a film about a wild horse that is accidentally found by Katy (Alison Lohman), a headstrong, horse-loving teenager, while she tries to escape the confines of her father’s expectations—and a mountain lion. The parallel between the struggles of Katy and Flicka—man trying to contain nature—is typical at best. But, for this horse enthusiast, it works.

Trust the Man, Fox’s latest depiction of love in modern times, seems more of an anti-romance in that it focuses on the mundane realities of coupledom. Julianne Moore and David Duchovny are Rebecca and Tom, the film’s key married couple, and they’re headed for the inevitability of divorce. As an ambitious Broadway actress, Rebecca’s workaholic tendencies force her stay-at-home husband to stray into the dangers of infidelity. On the other side of town, Elaine (Maggie Gyllenhaal), now ready for marriage, struggles with her noncommittal boyfriend of seven years, Tobey (Billy Crudup). While Trust attempts to distinguish itself by focusing on reality over romance, the film is simply annoying, flat, and boring.

And so the pirate saga continues. Johnny Depp boards the Black Pearl once again in Dead Man’s Chest, taking the ever-flamboyant Jack Sparrow on a soul-searching journey…literally. As the legendary Davy Jones resurfaces, it seems our favorite cap’n has a huge debt to pay. Jack may be good, but his pirating skills won’t be enough unless he finds the fabled chest and barters its contents with the formidable Jones, brilliantly portrayed by Bill Nighy, who takes villainy far above sea level. Orlando Bloom also returns as the virtuous Will Turner, offsetting his pretty-boy charm by adding a bit more ruggedness to the character this time around.

Anne Hathaway trades in her Brokeback boots for a pair of Pradas in Fox’s release la mode, The Devil Wears Prada. Andy Sachs (Hathaway) maneuvers through the stiletto-infested waters of Runway magazine as the newest assistant to editor-in-chief Miranda Priestly. While Andy maintains she’s only in it for the fringe benefits, she soon discovers she’s just a manipulation away from becoming a dragon lady herself. Hathaway has come a long way from her pretty princess role, but she’s still got a thing or two to learn from the ever-talented Meryl Streep, whose performance as the venerable Priestly screams Oscar, or so the rumor mill says.

Akeelah and the Bee is a moving story about a precocious “tweenager.” She discovers she is more than the sum of her spelling parts and helps others around her realize their own abilities to become powerful beyond measure. Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett reunite in this inspirational tale of hope, audacity, and some very hard-to-spell words. Fishburne gives an impeccable performance as the candid Dr. Larabee, who guides Akeelah to the national spelling bee under his rigorous tutelage.

Descending from Brokeback Mountain, Heath Ledger moves into a completely different characterization as the womanizing Casanova. You might believe you know the tale of this most legendary gigolo. Casanova, however, adds a romanticized spin. The film is satirical and whimsical, but you can also take it as a cautionary tale of suffering the consequences of a deviant past. The lovely Sienna Miller, who gives a delightful performance as the astute, exquisite Francesca Bruni, accompanies Ledger.

If you think you hate your day job, wait until you meet Yuri Orlov. Based on actual events, Lord of War follows the illustrious career of this quietly charismatic arms dealer as he travels the world hocking his explosive wares. Take caution, however; writer/director Andrew Niccol's got a moral agenda up his celluloid sleeve, and Cage does an excellent job delivering his message. Orlov may never have pulled a trigger on his own accord, but he is nevertheless a warlord—or rather, a lord of war, as one character prefers it.
