It is sad, but it is also very funny, very touching, very real. Yes, it's about death. Yes, the principal character, an 11-year-old girl, lives in a funeral home (her father is the owner), but the subject matter is handled with great tact.

In the beginning of "In the Loop" is the word, and the word is "unforeseeable." This British movie, set in London, Northampton and Washington, is an incredibly busy, erratically brilliant satire about the devious ways democratic governments can ramp up toward war. Its funniest joke comes right at the start and doesn't lose its snap after a dozen repetitions. A minor British official, Simon Foster (Tom Hollander), "Minister for International Development," hastens a trans-Atlantic rush to action simply by telling a radio talk-show host that an American war in the Middle East is "unforeseeable."

HOLLYWOOD -- If her first film does as well as her leading man's last one, Anna Chlumsky could become a big star.Chlumsky, a 10-year-old from the Chicago area, is starring opposite Macaulay Culkin in "My Girl" in what may be the most coveted child's role since Culkin landed "Home Alone" last year. That film has grossed well over $200 million, while driving Culkin's per-movie fee into the $1 million range. Though Anna is getting considerably less for "My Girl" -- under $50,000, according to a source -- it is an opportunity to work with Hollywood's hottest male star.

Getting tired of repeats? Me, too. At least the Orioles are playing better."Family Film Awards" (8 p.m.-10 p.m., WUSA, Channel 9) -- Sure, there are plenty of TV shows and movies out there for the entire XTC family. Here's an awards show to prove it, with Beau Bridges (he comes from a famous film family), Anna Chlumsky (she's a kid, and starred in a family film, "My Girl") and Joey Lawrence (he's a Lawrence brother, so you know he's G-rated) as hosts. Among the dominant film nominees: "Babe" and "Mr. Holland's Opus."

"My Girl 2"Starring Anna Chlumsky and Austin O'BrienDirected by Howard ZieffReleased by ColumbiaPG-rated... **A cynic has said that the secret to life is sincerity, and once you learn to fake that everything is easy. The problem with "My Girl 2" is it can't even fake sincerity.A sequel to the first film, in which Macauley Culkin A) got kissed and B) got killed, it returns the appealing Anna Chlumsky as Vada Sultenfuss, small-town teen-age girl with an open heart, bright eyes, a passionate if slightly callow mind, and enough decency to caulk the hull of the Arizona.

On Wednesday, HBO renewed the Baltimore-made sitcom "VEEP" for a third season. That means the series, which stars Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Vice President Selina Meyer, will be producing another 10 episodes in the Baltimore area next year. That's good news for the local economy. During its first season, which consisted of eight episodes, "VEEP" hired 978 Marylanders for cast and crew and did business with more than 1,100 Maryland vendors, according to the Maryland Film Office. Here's the release from the premium cable channel: HBO has renewed the comedy series VEEP for a ten-episode third season, scheduled for 2014.

Director Radu Miahaileanu's 2005 "Live and Become" ("Va, vis et deviens"), a drama that begins in a Sudanese refugee camp sheltering Ethiopians displaced by civil war and famine in 1984, will be the kick-off feature Saturday of this year's Columbia Jewish Film Series. The story follows a young boy, named Schlomo, who is air-lifted from Sudan to Israel, where he is adopted by a liberal Jewish family - and finds that assimilation into this new culture is harder than he thought. Complicating matters: he is not the Falasha, or Ethiopian Jew, that his adoptive family believes.
