A Texas-sized rainstorm has delayed all flights out of Dallas. Waiting on the red eye to Miami, Lisa (Rachel McAdams) finds she is hesitantly flirting with Jackson (Cillian Murphy); first in the check-in line and, later, in an airport bar. Jackson, booked on the same flight, is thoughtful, tender and eerily in tune with her tastes. In any other movie, love could be in the air. However, the flirtation gives way to a sinister and turbulent new reality as soon as they are high in the unfriendly skies.

Silber and Silber "Insomnia," a film by Christopher Nolan, stars Al Pacino, Robin Williams and Hillary Swank. It is a police story and psychological thriller that is entertaining and well made. Pacino plays a talented and highly respected detective from Los Angeles whose reputation and job may be ruined by exposure of a past illegal professional lapse. The internal struggle of Pacino and the cat and mouse interactions and maneuverings between the detective and the other characters is well-done, and well paced with very interesting action sequences.

Most children's theater comes neatly packaged in a message, and "The Great Squirrel Uprising," the new offering from the Laguna Playhouse's Youth Theater, is no different. It's aimed at that rather sorry species of insect life, the litterbug. New York's Central Park is the setting for Dan Elish's pocket-sized musical in which furry and feathered creatures, fed up with the incessant scattering of trash by careless human visitors, rise up in protest, blocking access to the verdant area with summer's big crowds just around the corner.

Fourth-grade science students at Paradise Canyon Elementary School took a walk on the wild side when they displayed the results of their science projects to fellow classmates and parents on Friday afternoon. Each of the weird and wonderful projects had a distinct flavor of their own and ranged from finding out which type of popcorn popped the most kernels to which soft drink helped marigolds to grow the tallest. Robert Hajek, fourth-grade science teacher, said the students had been limited by only their own imaginations when it came to developing a scientific hypothesis, identifying and controlling variables, conducting an experiment and then presenting their results at the school's Science Museum Walk.
