The pitch for the cut-rate comedy Welcome to the Jungle? It's The Office meets Survivor. Coworkers, stranded on a desert island, fight among themselves after the pilot for their chartered plane is found dead, and after the gung-ho military man charged with leading them through their wilderness retreat gets mauled by, yes, a tiger.
The Dirty Dozen Curators? The Art Critics of Navarone? With its jaunty hup-two-three-four score, its piggish Nazis, and its gallant gang of recruits - led by George Clooney, in epaulets and Clark Gable mustache - The Monuments Men is a throwback to Hollywood's war movies of yore.
