Welcome to Girl Empowerment weekend at the local multiplex. Bend It Like Beckham is a joyful celebration of spirit and endurance, the story of a plucky Sikh girl living in London who only wants to play soccer, but whose parents insist she hold to their more traditional family values and concentrate on cooking and finding a husband. The film pokes gentle fun at cultural differences without trivializing them and celebrates a life well-lived, if only because it's a life brimming with possibilities.

Scooby-Doo is bland, inoffensive, formulaic and occasionally amusing - just like the animated kids' show that inspired it. Which means it should appeal to the same group that embraced the earlier incarnation: pre-teens who have not yet learned the value of heightened expectations. Face it, TV's Scooby-Doo, by the ubiquitous Hanna-Barbera studio, was never the height of ambitious storytelling or animation. Week after week, four generic humans and one really big great Dane would travel around in their Mystery Machine van, running into ghosts and mayhem and inevitably discovering that the seemingly supernatural was nothing more than a guy in a fright suit.

Forty-one years ago, in "The Apartment," when Lemmon played a young company man who lent his modest pad to bosses who needed a love nest, his doctor neighbor kept urging him to be "a mensch."
