National Treasure
By Mike Rappaport

This movie was panned by the reviewers, but I just loved it. Of course, I am a sucker for early American history and for Raiders of the Ark type thrillers. Highly recommended, if you don't take it (or yourself) too seriously.

The heroine in the movie, Diane Kruger, also played Helen in the movie Troy. At the time, she was criticized for not being attractive enough to play the part of the most beautiful women in the world. I agreed with that criticism, but she more than makes up for any failings in Troy in this movie.
