  • Michael Moore is a Cannes favorite once again. His last film, the war-on-terror documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" won the festival's top prize, the Palme d'Or, in 2004. His latest, 'Sicko', is screening out of competition - Moore joked that he didn't want to appear like a "typical American" by greedily seeking another trophy. A reporter pointed out that it's a shame he couldn't say the same for his waistline.

  • The Chinese authorities are investigating whether two companies exported poison-tainted toothpaste, including some made specifically for children, after it turned up in Latin America. The companies did point out though that the children's toothpaste kept teeth white even after death.
