Flightplan picture
Flight attendants: "Boycott 'Flightplan'." But Why? Take a look at the story. It displays a mother looking for her missing daughter aboard a plane. It then turns out that one of the flight attendants aboard is involved in a terrorist plot hatched by the plane's air marshal.

So? Labor unions, the Association of Professional Flight Attendants, the Association of Flight Attendants and Transport Workers Union, representing most of the nation's 90,000 flight attendants at 23 airlines have urged their members to boycott the new Jodie Foster film, which they think can cause distrust of their members among real airline passengers.

School for Scoundrels picture
Jacinda Barrett has signed on to star in director Todd Phillips' comedy "School for Scoundrels." In time, Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder also agree to star in. Just now, Michael Clarke Duncan is in negotiations to co-star with them in the Weinstein Co.'s Dimension Films' project.

Let's hope the negotiations work well that Duncan could later on get the role of Lesher, a fellow of Thornton's character. "School for Scoundrels" follows a down-on-his-luck meter reader, Heder, who enrolls in a confidence-building class so he can win the love of his dream girl. The class turns out to be something quite different once it becomes clear to the young man that his professor, Thornton's role, has set his sights on the same woman.
