The smiles on the faces of Andre Mackey and Nijala Bullock of Baltimore tell a tale: Yes, some front teeth are missing, but they've lost them happily. Do they believe in the tooth fairy? You might as well ask if there's really a president, or a Congress, or a movie star named George Clooney. In the lives of 6-year-olds, those things are merely theoretical. They have the dollars to prove the tooth fairy's existence. "She wanted me to get some more teeth," Andre explains and points to the newcomers rising from his gums.

Up in the Air . . ( 4 STARS) The great surprise of this film starring George Clooney as a traveling corporate hatchet man, is that it manages to humanize both sides of those who sit at the terrible table where layoffs are doled out. It would have been easy for director Jason Reitman to let the newly unemployed drift into melodrama; he didn't. It would have been easier still to vilify, at least a little, Clooney's bad-news bear; he doesn't. Instead, Reitman gives us the perfect movie for our times, with a near-perfect Clooney the cherry on top. "Up in the Air" turns out to be the quintessential upper.
