Disney and their two dimensions are back. The Princess and the Frog didn't make Lion King numbers, but it's a respectable win for the New Orleans' driven story about a hard working woman who turns into a frog. Audiences weren't inspired to see Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman in Invictus which could mean it falls from Oscar hopes. Have you noticed Damon is keep the business of fake noses alive and well? Ocean's 13, The Informant! and now Invictus. Next week, the world will stop for James Cameron's Avatar.
