>1 GEORGE CLOONEY, all steely stare and hopped-up intensity, is hilarious as a gung ho member of a secret Army unit. Its mission? To develop supernatural powers, such as invisibility.

2 TRUTH OUT-STRANGES FICTION. Proof? This comedy is partially based on a true story. That makes Goats even funnier—though, hey, aren’t those your hard-earned tax dollars at work?

3 THE DUDE ABIDES as Jeff Bridges, playing the head of the nutso Army unit, kicks sublimely into full The Big Lebowski mode.
