*Cars (G)
Like every one of the six previous features Pixar has delivered, Cars is smart, snappy and entertaining. And like every one of those six previous features, it's grounded in fundamentally strong storytelling. It's funny, warm and charming, yes but it's also wise in a way that's almost enough to make you want to weep. At its expansive heart, Cars is an affectionate, almost mournful story of how easy it is to leave anything that isn't hot and happenin' anything that isn't this year's model in the dust.

The Da Vinci Code (PG-13)
For all the brouhaha, The Da Vinci Code is really nothing but the Hardy Boys dressed up in the provocative attire of questioning centuries-old Christian beliefs about the divinity of Jesus Christ, the role of Mary Magdalene and other aspects of the faith. If you take this stuff seriously, one way or another, you're sure to be duped. So dark the con of man, indeed.

*United 93 (R)

*X-Men: The Last Stand (PG-13)
Sure, director Brett Ratner is no Bryan Singer, the man who made the first two X-Men movies into intelligent, emotionally resonant films that even non-comics fans could love. Yes, Ratner's music-video attention span and inability to linger on a shot for more than a few seconds blunts the impact of some of X-Men: The Last Stand's big emotional moments. Nonetheless, he liked Singer's films as much as you did, and he hasn't tried to fix what ain't broke. Gary Susman
