Three movies

we've watched 3 netflix movies:
Lucky Numbers with John Travolta and Lisa Kudrow. It was fairly amusing (gave it 3 stars) - John Travolta is an almost-down-on-his-luck weatherman, trying to get a break. It's dead of the mildest winter for years, and he's just invested in snowmobiles. He wants to audition for a game show host position, but his agent won't return his calls (ok, the agent's been dead for months but he doesn't even know). He's got some shady friends who convince him to do some dishonest things to pay his debts, like faking a burglary of his snowmobile store which fails, and throwing the lotto, which succeeds in part.

Heartburn with Jack Nicholson and Meryl Streep is supposedly biographical about Nora or Delia Ephron, who wrote/directed. Nora I think. They meet, get married, have kids, he sleeps around. We only watched a little of it (1 kid born, she looked like she was pregnant with another), and got bored and turned it off. Would that be 1 or 2 stars?

Don't Drink The Water, Woody Allen - a family vacationing in Eastern Europe accidentally takes a photo of something sensitive and hides in the American Embassy while the ambassador's son (Michael J Fox) tries to figure out how to get them back to the States. Pretty silly all around, I gave it 2 stars.
