PICKS OF THE WEEK “Rango” (PG) -- One of the wonderful things to take shape since the rise of computer-animated kids movies is the notion that adults often must sit through and appear to enjoy the show as well. “Rango” takes control of this idea in an interesting way. Not many kids movies work in references to “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” or “Chinatown.” “Rango” tells the story of a neurotic pet chameleon dropped into the Wild West. Johnny Depp does a good job giving voice to the scrawny green hero, and actually gives some depth to the lizard’s shaky bravado. In fact, all of the characters look and sound interesting -- something I didn’t think possible considering the steady cascade of talking CG animals that’s been coming out of Hollywood year after year. The action, visuals, jokes and scruffy little animals rank high among what the genre has to offer. Like the little town housing the characters, the whole movie seems crafted out of little pieces of other, more recognizable efforts. This also might be the movie’s largest drawback. While grownups can appreciate the little homages, many of Rango’s quips could go right over the heads of younger viewers. The movie’s attention to detail makes for a well-crafted animated adventure that nobody is too big to enjoy. “Arthur” (PG-13) -- This remake of the 1981 bumbling-drunk comedy of the same name just doesn’t have the same kick. The story brings back Arthur Bach, a billionaire playboy manchild who receives an ultimatum: settle down and get married or say goodbye to the money. The idea was to create a vehicle for Russell Brand, a capable English comedian who just can’t seem to fit into the whole leading-man role. Not that he can’t

Producers cried, “O Romeo, Romeo, wherefore art thou Romeo?” as they plowed through hundreds of actors ... until they found British actor Gregory Booth. The 19-year-old future heartthrob will star opposite “True Grit” Oscar nominee Hailee Steinfeld, along with Holly Hunter and “Gossip Girl’s” Ed Westwick. Booth previously impressed in the Starz mini-series “Pillars of the Earth” and will be seen as Miley Cyrus’ love interest in “LOL” and the BBC adaptation of “Great Expectations.” “Superman Returns” ... Brandon Routh, who played the Man from Krypton in that film, was to have starred in the sequel, but it was called off. Now the Superman film is being made with Brit Henry Clavill as “The Man of Steel.” Brandon impressed in his weekly appearances in the NBC series “Chuck,” which led to his being signed to topline the new film about lacrosse, “Crooked Arrows,” shooting in Boston in August for a spring 2012 release.

After serving as his high school football team’s kicker and working part-time as a bank teller, he went on to study Sports Broadcasting at USC. Ferrell’s father was a backup musician for The Righteous Brothers. • Turning 94 this month hasn’t slowed down comedienne Phyllis Diller, who still appears occasionally on television. Although known for her wild hairdos, outlandish costumes and cackling laugh, she is also an accomplished pianist and painter. During World War II, Diller spent her days as a housewife and mother, doing advertising copywriting on the side while her husband worked at a B-24 bomber plant. She makes no attempts to conceal the fact that she’s had at least 15 plastic surgery procedures.

“Brazil” (R) [Blu-ray] -- This 1985 absurdist sciencefiction film is one of those movies the creator fought for, and watching it shows why. Set in a dismal future ruled by heartless bureaucracy and inefficiency, a government worker starts to see through the elaborate mess of the world around him. Directed by Terry Gilliam, the movie shows a world so dystopian and ridiculous, it’s George Orwell as read by Monty Python. “Brazil” is easily a Blu-ray • It wasn’t Lisa Kudrow’s first choice to go into the entertainment industry.

David Chokachi up to?” David was “Cody” on “Baywatch,” (l995-l999) and starred in “Witchblade” (2001-2002). He was briefly in “Soul Surfer” with AnnaSophia Robb and Dennis Quaid, and is awaiting the release of

two films, “Boarding School 3D” and “Devour” with Brooke Hogan, set for a December 2012 release. *** Last week I wrote about the legendary Debbie Reynolds, so it seems only fitting to write about her daughter, Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia in “Star Wars”), this week. When you see

ads for Jenny Craig, you have no idea how she put on all her weight. As if being the daughter of absentee father Eddie Fisher wasn’t enough to mess a girl up, she had many other problems. In l980 she was engaged to Dan Aykroyd, but left him to return to Paul Simon. Their marriage lasted less than a year, but he got some good songs out of it. Then she lived with agent Bryan Lourd, with whom she had a daughter, Billie Catherine Lourd, though they were never married. Their relationship ended when he left her for a gay relationship. Next, she lived with Brit singer James Blunt (“You’re Beautiful”). In addition to suffering from bipolar disorder and a dependency on drugs, she also had electroconvulsive therapy treatments to “break apart the cement in my brain,” as she puts it. Out of all this came the book and movie “Postcards From the Edge” (with Meryl Streep and Shirley MacLaine) and her recent book “Wishful Drinking,” which became a hit Broadway show then an HBO special. While we were all singing “Oh My Papa” along with Eddie Fisher, Carrie was having her first identity crisis!

ARIES (March 21 to April 19)

You’re not Sheepish when it comes to asserting your opinions on what you think is right or wrong. Be assured that you’re being heard, and something positive will follow.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20)

Your sense of justice makes it difficult not to speak up about a recurring matter involving a coworker. But, once again, you need facts to back you up before you can act.

GEMINI (May 21 to June 20)

Romance is still dominant, and if Cupid misfired before, don’t worry. He’ll take better aim at someone new this time around. Expect favorable news about a financial matter.

CANCER (June 21 to July 22)

The zodiac’s Moon Children can expect things to work out pretty much as planned. One negative note involves a minor relationship problem that suddenly turns serious.

LEO (July 23 to August 22)

You’re suddenly being asked to make choices between two practically equal offers. Which one to choose? Easy. The one most likely to gladden your Lion’s heart.

VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)

Once again, you’re confronted by a workplace problem you thought you’d already resolved. This time, you might need to go higher up to find a just resolution.

LIBRA (September 23 to October 22)

Good for you: You’re determined to stick with your goals and ignore those naysayers who might try to discourage you. You’re on the right track. The challenge now is to stay on it.

SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)

You’ll soon get news that is supposed to help you with a troublesome situation. Use your sharp Scorpion instincts to determine if the information is reliable.

Q: I am so happy “Hardcore Pawn” has returned for a fourth season. Will it be back for a fifth, or is it too early to tell? -- Dirk S., via e-mail A: TruTV’s breakout hit, which centers on one of the world’s largest pawn shops, had such terrific premiere ratings for Season Four that the network has already renewed it for another 13-episode season, which is slated to begin later this year. *** Q: I was sad when Thad Luckinbill left “The Young and The Restless” last year, so you can imagine how happy I was to see him on the CW’s “Nikita.” Will his character be back for Season Two? -- Charlene, via e-mail A: Thad, who you also can see this month in Hallmark Channel’s “Keeping Up With the Randalls,” gave me the scoop: “I think that’s yet to be determined. They were honest about it and told me that they weren’t sure exactly what to do with it, so that is why they left it open. It’s like anything, I think if the story’s right and it matches up to bring him back, then that would be great. I would love it. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t.

Liv Tyler, who played Arwen in the trilogy, is keen to make a cameo in the latest films, however, as of this writing, there are no plans to resurrect her character.

It was American publisher and author William Feather who made the following sage observation: “The petty economies of the rich are just as amazing as the silly extravagances of the poor.” The parents of one first-grade student at Hampton Day School in Bridgehampton, N.Y., once sued the school for not assigning homework to their 6-year-old son.

Often, words are formed by pairing simple symbols to convey a more complex idea. For instance, the symbol for “eye” combined with the symbol for “water” creates the word “teardrop.” Pair “mouth” with “bird” and you get song. And, interestingly, pairing two women together makes the symbol for “quarrel,” and three means “gossip.” Census data show that women in the South tend to live longer than their counterparts in northern states.

You may be surprised to learn that President Abraham Lincoln’s son, Robert Todd Lincoln, was on the scene of three presidential assassinations. The first time was in 1865, when he was with his father after he was shot at Ford’s Theatre. In 1881, Lincoln, who was then serving as Secretary of War, arrived at Union Station shortly after President James A. Garfield had been shot. Finally, in 1901, he was at the PanAmerican Exposition in Buffalo, N.Y., when President William McKinley was assassinated.
