Simple table sorting with jQuery.

var $movies = $("#movies");

$('#movies th').wrapInner('<span title="sort by this column"/>').each(function () {
  var th = $(this),
    thIndex = th.index(),
    inverse = false;

  th.click(function () {

    table.find('td').filter(function () {
      return $(this).index() === thIndex;
    }).sortElements(function (a, b) {
      return $.text([a]) > $.text([b]) ? inverse ? -1 : 1 : inverse ? 1 : -1;
    }, function () {
      // parentNode is the element we want to move
      return this.parentNode;
    });
    inverse = !inverse;
  });

});
