American Film Institute names surprises “Coraline”, “The Hangover” on 2009 Top Ten list

The American Film Institute has named it's top ten for 2009. The list includes two films that have been ignored as too "Hollywood" for most critics' groups – the animated hit "Coraline" and the somewhat raunchy wedding comedy "The Hangover".  Notable by its absence from the list – "Inglorious Basterds". And also documentary "The Cove", which was considered a shoo in for the list. Ah, well…you can't have everything I guess…
