10.4: Resurrect the 10.5 Movies widget in Tiger System 10.4
Recently the Leopard Movies widget, which Steve demoed along with Leopard, stopped working in Tiger. Leopard's built-in Movies widget continues to function, while in Tiger, it gives an error of "invalid zip code." You can make this widget function once again in 10.4.

Navigate to /Library/Widgets and find the Movies widget. Control-click on the widget and choose Show Package Contents from the pop-up menu. Then open parser.js in your favorite text editor, and replace all occurrences of A99D3D1A-774C-4914-9E3B-18645117428A with DE7E251E-7758-40A4-98E0-87557E9F31F0 and save. Close any open movie widget in Dashboard, then re-open it. Now it works.

10.4: Resurrect the 10.5 Movies widget in Tiger
Authored by: happygouki on Jun 13, '08 02:07:36PM

i couldn't get this to work for canadian postal codes

there is a function in the movies.js file that verifies the zip code (as 5 digits)

function isValidPostalCode(n) {
return n && isFinite(n) && 5 == n.toString().length && n > 0;
}

i tried commenting out the ANDs (i.e. changed it to):

function isValidPostalCode(n) {
return n;
// && isFinite(n) && 5 == n.toString().length && n > 0;
}

seems to work :)
