Elizabethtown

Cameron Crowe's latest feature screened at the Toronto film festival as a bloated 135-minute work in progress; he's since trimmed it to 117, but it's still an especially lame variation on his feel-good formula. Bland Orlando Bloom plays a rising young designer at a west-coast sneaker company whose new shoe has made a disastrous debut; after his father dies while visiting relatives, his mother (Susan Sarandon) dispatches him to the title Kentucky town to take charge of the body. The hero's nuclear family and kooky rural relatives are so sketchily conceived that none of the intended comedy works, and the balance of the movie is given over to one of Crowe's sugary romances, between Bloom and a delectable flight attendant (Kirsten Dunst, who's not given a character so much as served in a martini glass). PG-13.
