No matter that you're weeping buckets (and you will). Tears cannot tarnish the sterling performances in Marvin's Room, a sandwich-generation stressfest relieved by truly magical acting. Lee and Bessie are sisters. That they are played by Meryl Streep and Diane Keaton tells you something about a gene pool that can produce a hard-bitten beautician who shrugs off new burdens and the cuddly caregiver whose arms are always open. The two, who have avoided contact for 20 years, have been busy doing the responsibility juggle.

Stock flippers and ratholes: That was the dirty business of true-life Wolf of Wall Street Jordan Belfort, says Gregory Coleman, the FBI special agent who ensnared the notorious criminal. The real story is even better than the movie. And, like every good story, it has lessons for us. Coleman was invited to tell the tale at the recent Economic Crimes Conference at the Philadelphia FBI offices by Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge John Brosnan, formerly of Coleman's old New York squad.

Inception Christopher Nolan's puzzle film focuses on dream invaders (Leonardo DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page) who plant ideas in the unconscious.

GIMME FIVE "Toy Story 3" recently passed the $1 billion mark, making it the top-grossing animated movie ever, and one of the top five movie releases of all time. Here's the list: 1. "Avatar" (2009) James Cameron's sci-fi epidemic capitalized on its breakthrough cinematic technology. $2.7 billion. 2. "Titanic" (1997) Romance and appealing actors - Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet - fueled this James Cameron-directed movie ship. $1.8 billion. 3. "Lord of the Rings, Return of the King" (2003)

The 11th Hour . 1/2 Directed by Leila Conners Petersen and Nadia Conners, produced by Leonardo DiCaprio. Distributed by Warner Independent Pictures. 1 hour, 31 mins. PG (some violence). Playing at Ritz East. Why Al Gore is a great movie star, Exhibit A: The 11th Hour. Even with no less celestial a presence than Leonardo DiCaprio producing and occasionally showing up on screen, this compendium of talking heads and (mostly) stock footage, sometimes oddly juxtaposed, feels like a lecture compared to An Inconvenient Truth, which was a filmed lecture.

There's a car driving on a sandy beach. Two people are in the car. They are bonding. Is it "The Evening Star"? Is it "Some Mother's Son"? Is it "Marvin's Room"? Yes to all three, although this instant cliche weighs most heavily on "Marvin's Room," the third movie out of the holiday gate, and therefore the most vulnerable to an intrusive sense of deja vu. The movie stars Diane Keaton as a spinster living in a modest Florida bungalow, caring for her bedridden father (Hume Cronyn)

Water rushes down the street of the ultramodern glass and steel city. Weird, huh? Even Leonardo DiCaprio doesn't see that every day. Here's what we know: Leo's walking into (he's got his back to us) a big problem (he needs a gun), and he's the only one who can fix it (there's no one else in the poster, and his body covers the answer - that clear, sunny sky breaking through the clouds in the background). But the tagline, which has nothing to do with the image, is the only thing that tells me "Inception" is about the limitless matrix of the Dreamscape - and not a sequel to "Titanic" ("Titanic 2: King of the World")

Downey Jr. makes load$! Overqualified Iron Man movie star (and onetime serious thesp) Robert Downey Jr. , 49, made more money in the last 12 months than any actor alive or dead. Thanks to Marvel's comic hero, he made $75 mil. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson trails at No. 2, with a measly $52 mil.

When we last checked in with Steve Coogan - all the way back in early December - the British actor and comedy star was chin-deep in awards-season mode, campaigning for Philomena , the prestige picture in which he starred opposite Judi Dench , and which he cowrote and produced. It was based on the true story of an Irish retiree who joined a British journalist to look for the son she gave up for adoption as an unwed teen living in a Catholic convent. Philomena went on to receive four Academy Award nominations, including for best picture, for Dench (best actress)

THERE were four directors on the set of "The Wolf of Wall Street," but it wasn't a case of too many cooks. Martin Scorsese was the lone chef. Among his chosen ingredients - a supporting cast of actors that included Jon Favreau, Spike Jonze and Rob Reiner, the latter with a substantial role as the bean-counting father of the movie's free-spending title character, an investment swindler played by Leonardo DiCaprio. Reiner was there to perform, not to kibbitz, but he did have a chance to commiserate with Scorsese about a subject common to all of them - how hard it is, even for big-name directors, to get grown-up material made by risk-averse studios.

AMID THE Martin Scorsese -directed '90s debauchery of "The Wolf of Wall Street" lies . . . the Temple University Diamond Band. In their underwear. It turns out, Temple's finest have a scene in "Wolf," starring Leonardo DiCaprio , Matthew McConaughey and Cherry Hill's own Cristin Milioti (whom you may know as The Mother on "How I Met Your Mother" on CBS). The film features DiCaprio as Jordan Belfort , chronicling his rise from high-flying stockbroker to his eventual fall from grace after defrauding investors of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Condensed from Daily News movie critic Gary Thompson's reviews, unless noted otherwise. AFTER EARTH M. Night Shyamalan directs Will and Jaden Smith in a sci-fi adventure about a father and son trying to survive an inhospitable Earth. The flora and fauna are enjoyably diverse, but the charismatic elder Smith is straightjacketed in a stern-dad role. (PG-13) B- NOW YOU SEE ME Dueling magicians match wits in a so-so riff on "The Prestige," helped by a cast that includes Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg.The magic acts have an energetic, Stick It To The Man theme.
