Michael Moore's wry first-person documentary "Where to Invade Next," his first since 2009 and "Capitalism: A Love Story," isn't what it sounds like.

A man charged with stalking Gwyneth Paltrow told jurors Thursday that he wanted the actress' forgiveness for bombarding her with lewd messages years ago, but a prosecutor urged the panel to see him as a calculated and crazy stalker intent on tormenting the Oscar winner.
All jokes are offensive to someone, comedian Mike Birbiglia insists, and that's OK. When his everyday encounters "become the joke later," and he exposes the ridiculousness of people he knows to an audience of strangers, he defends himself by saying, "It's just my side of the story."
