An all-star cast of singers become actors for "Angels Sing," a wan little holiday film that manages to show a little heart once it finally gets going.
Harry Connick Jr. stars as an Austin, Texas, history professor who doesn't put much stock in Christmas. Michael is always angling to dodge doing both Thanksgiving and Christmas with his parents (Kris Kristofferson, Fionnula Flanagan) for reasons he's reluctant to tell his granny-loving son (Chandler Canterbury). His wife (Connie Britton) is understanding.
Eventually, the kid finds out -- dad lost a brother over the holidays, years ago. Kind of ruined the day for him.
But Michael's ongoing house-hunting throws him in the path of this chuckling old man (Willie Nelson) with a McMansion for sale.
"How much, Mr. ... uuhhhh?"
"Call me 'Nick.'"
They seal the deal and Michael finds himself with the showplace of Live Oak Lane, one of those Christmas-crazed corners »

We look at 20 former A-list actors, and the interesting film choices they've made...
There comes a time in every A-list actor's life when they gather their thoughts and take a step back into smaller budget or more leftfield fare - and for a variety of reasons. They may want to work with a certain director or an emerging directing talent. They might be taken by a fantastic script. They might fancy a new artistic direction. They may even have a spiritual epiphany and decide to eschew Hollywood and all its decadent trappings, or they may simply just not have a choice, since the big roles have long since dried up for them.
The reason for this list then, is to look at some of those shining lights, the household names, and at the films they took up as proof of their artistic integrity. »

In the new thriller "Stoker" (in theaters Friday), a girl (Mia Wasikowska) whose recently lost her father suspects the motives of the uncle she never knew she had. Matthew Goode plays the enigmatic "Uncle Charlie," surely a nod to the main character in Alfred Hitchcock's film "Shadow of a Doubt," in which a small-town girl discovers her beloved uncle is really a serial killer. We doubt that's this Charlie's secret but it's often true in films that you simply cannot trust your uncle. Take Hamlet's wicked uncle, Claudius, whose dastardly plan has inspired more than one cinematic villain's plot to seize power. Of course, Shakespeare also drew from real life, since murderous uncles and young heirs unfortunately go hand in hand. And then there are those uncles who get away with a different kind of murder, whether it's neglect or outright abuse. Here are 12 of the creepiest, no-good movie uncles we could find. »
