    And the action? It's especially hard to determine who's fighting whom in "Legends," because, well, because they are a bunch of owls.

    In Faster, it's a car, not actors, that drives movie.

    An uninspired studio product that demands as little from the audience as it did from its writers, directors and actors.

    The realities that Crowe creates all seem like pleasant enough places to be, but you'd never mistake them for real life. The fuzzy, squishy world of We Bought a Zoo may be the Cameron Crowe-iest of them all.

    Is it mindless fun for the kids in an air-conditioned environment? I guess, sure, but it's maddening how many details in Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore are swiped wholesale from other stories.
