Just remembered two other movies I saw last week:

Legend of Earthsea (Sci Fi Channel miniseries)
Not the worst thing in the world, but also not Ursula K. LeGuin's original epic. I think her critique of the production was right on: the source material was whitewashed, all hint of color or eccentricity leeched out so the final product would be bland and familiar enough to appeal to the largest possible mass market.

Under the Tuscan Sun (NetFlix DVD)
Fluffy and inoffensive, but also mostly inconsequential. DeeAnn called it "lifestyle porn."
