Michael Douglas has gotten rave reviews for his role in the dark comedy King of California. He plays Charlie, a man just off a two-year stint in a mental institution trying to reconnect with his long-suffering teenage daughter. His schemes to reverse the family's fortunes bring them together, for better or worse.

King of California opens on September 14 at the Lincoln Square Cinemas and the Angelika Film Center.

This has the same title as a book by Mark Arax, an L.A. Times writer. Any connection?

PLEASE instruct him on the correct pronounciation of the word "nuclear". I think he is a smart person, we share a birthday, 9/25, and would hate to put him in the same catagory as our horrible president.

I can't take him seriously because I can't stand his wife. Chain smoking while pregnant images of her on the beach haunt me.
