**1/2 (out of four) George Clooney goes to Hawaii in “The Descendants,” but no one should expect a movie as light and amusing as “George Clooney Goes to Hawaii” would be. (Memo to studio heads: I expect a producer credit when you move forward on this as-of-yet non-existent documentary idea.) Rather, director/co-writer Alexander Payne's first feature since 2004's “Sideways” takes place against a beautiful island backdrop where the family drama has all the stress-free glamor of Cleveland.

" That's all the excitement found in the dull "The Monuments Men," which suggests its interesting true story makes better fodder for cocktail party discussion than a movie. Director/co-writer George Clooney stars as Frank Stokes, who during WWII gathers a group of men (including Matt Damon, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin and, as an architect plucked from Chicago, Bill Murray)
