RT on DVD: Bedtime Stories, Yes Man, Doubt Hit Shelves
This week's new releases include a few Hollywood takes on science fiction (Fox's remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still; the 1984 sequel 2010: The Year We Make Contact on Blu-ray), and a few that fall into the fantasy genre (Adam Sandler's Bedtime Stories; Jim Carrey in Yes Man, where he romances the 18-years younger Zooey Deschanel -- a middle-aged male fantasy if there ever was one).

Box Office Wrapup: Audiences say Yes to Jim Carrey
THIS WEEKEND Moviegoers gave a clear yes to Jim Carrey and a definite maybe to Will Smith as the A-list Hollywood stars took the top two spots at the North American box office with their newest films. Carrey's comedy Yes Man finished first, Smith's odd drama Seven Pounds locked up the runnerup spot, while another new release - the animated mouse adventure The Tale of Despereaux - debuted in third place. Ticket sales were hurt by huge snowstorms and sub-freezing temperatures across much of the northeast. Add in the frenzy of the final shopping weekend before Christmas and it was clear that going to the movies was not a top priority this weekend with the top ten crashing by nearly 50% versus a year ago.
