7 SUPER SIZE ME A documentary of what happens to a man who goes on a strict diet of fast food for a month. And for a limited time, get a free voodoo doll of the director with each Happy Meal.

8 LA-Z-BOY The recliner company has hired edgy fashion designer Todd Oldham to jazz up its line. Passing out in front of the tube has never been so chic.

9 A DAY WITHOUT A MEXICAN A movie asks the question, Could California survive if all its immigrants disappeared? First, who would be governor?
