Frida

Genre: Drama

Julie Taymor's FRIDA is a solidly entertaining biopic that's as easy to admire as a Grant Wood painting.

Julie Taymor's FRIDA is a solidly entertaining biopic that's as easy to admire as a Grant Wood painting, which is surprising since the movie tells the story of controversial Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. At its worst it's like a paint-by-numbers picture, but at its best...

Supposedly, just before you die, your entire life flashes before your eyes.

Supposedly, just before you die, your entire life flashes before your eyes. Something similar happens to aging baseball pitcher Billy Chapel (Kevin Costner) in the aptly named, FOR LOVE OF THE GAME. Throwing what may well be his last game, his entire life flashes by him as he struggles with over-the-hill muscles to eke out one last valiant effort. He is "40 years old, arm weary and achy," says the game's announcer. This last game of his, perhaps, just perhaps, might even be one for the record books. Then again, maybe not. His arm gives out quickly these days, and he's been only 8-11 this season. Some people stop to smell the roses. ...

To paraphrase Joyce Kilmer's famous poem, boys are made by fools like me, but only Dr. Wells can make a copy.

To paraphrase Joyce Kilmer's famous poem, boys are made by fools like me, but only Dr. Wells can make a copy. GODSEND, a science fiction horror movie with a single idea (cloning), is directed lamely by Nick Hamm, whose last film was the equally inept THE VERY THOUGHT OF YOU (internationally titled MARTHA, MEET FRANK, DANIEL AND LAURENCE). A by-the-numbers thriller, GODSEND plays like a bad TV movie that somehow attracted a good cast. Robert De Niro phones in his performance as Dr. Richard Wells, a fertility expert with a secret, monster-sized clinic in the middle of nowhere. He mysteriously shows up at the funeral of eight-year-old Adam ...

HIGH CRIMES, which reunites KISS THE GIRLS's Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman.

HIGH CRIMES, which reunites KISS THE GIRLS's Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, is an entertaining mystery and thriller by director Carl Franklin (ONE FALSE MOVE). Set during a military trial that sometimes resembles a kangaroo court, the story is filled with devilish machinations and partially predictable but nonetheless satisfying twists. The plot, involving a military cover-up, isn't the most original, but the adroit cast and crew milk it for all its worth. You'll jump, you'll cheer, you'll laugh and you'll be rooting for the defense team. In short, you'll have a good time. The thriller gets in gear when Tom (James Caviezel, FREQUENCY), ...

MULAN, which we saw being developed in Disney's Florida studios.

MULAN, which we saw being developed in Disney's Florida studios, is the first Disney animated movie produced on the East Coast. The animators we talked with said that they relished the creative freedom that being so far removed from corporate headquarters afforded them. And, as in any skunkworks, the workers used their independence to build the product they most wanted - forget those suits back at headquarters. The impressive result, although not as spectacular as some of Disney's recent offerings, bodes well for this isolated, creative team. Filmed in medium blues with warm rose accents, the animation is handsome albeit not up to ...

A lifeless, mean-spirited film, it arrives DOA at your local theater today.

BEAUTIFUL isn't. A lifeless, mean-spirited film, it arrives DOA at your local theater today. Advertised as a comedy, the picture, thanks to Sally's Field's inept direction and Jon Bernstein's dull script, is, instead, a depressing drama. With beauty pageants as its subject, BEAUTIFUL should have been an easy success. Is there anything easier to satirize than beauty pageants? Last year's marvelously funny DROP DEAD GORGEOUS showed what is possible. Even if BEAUTIFUL can't rise to that level, does it have to be so painful to watch? Every performance is gratingly awful, and all the roles are badly miscast. Attractive Minnie Driver, as ...

Texas -- not that you'll care.

In Louis Morneau's BATS, these unnecessarily maligned creatures are noshing on the residents of Gallop, Texas -- not that you'll care. A direct rip-off of THE BIRDS, although without any of its suspense and with no improvements in the special effects over Hitchcock's 1963 classic, this cheap-looking movie never rises above the level of a popcorn flick. Check your brain at the door, order lots of snacks from the concession stand and eat slowly. You won't exactly be entertained, but you'll probably stay awake as you munch away. So which actors set off your casting red flags? For me they include Lou Diamond Phillips and Burt Reynolds, ...

CASA DE LOS BABYS is a preachy story about six neurotic.

John Sayles's CASA DE LOS BABYS is a preachy story about six neurotic, American women: Skipper (Daryl Hannah), Nan (Marcia Gay Harden), Gayle (Mary Steenburgen), Leslie (Lili Taylor), Jennifer (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and Eileen (Susan Lynch). They are all getting cranky, having spent a couple of months in hotel rooms while waiting for the bureaucrats of some unnamed Latin American country to approve their adoption of local babies. The movie, which might work as a play, has two modes. In one, it keeps lecturing us about the pervasive poverty in this Spanish speaking country. The poorest kids steal out of necessity, and the slightly better off...

CARANDIRU, by director Hector Babenco, is a harrowing movie, based on a true story.

CARANDIRU, by director Hector Babenco (THE KISS OF THE SPIDER WOMAN and IRONWEED), is a harrowing movie, based on a true story, set and filmed in a real Brazilian prison. Housing 8,000 prisoners, Carandiru was one of the largest in the world before it was recently demolished. Although intriguing, the film is way too long and is narratively all over the map, varying from a fictionalized documentary to an almost surreal soap opera and comedy. Watching the movie, you find yourself increasingly ignoring the stories -- a prisoner/medic smokes crack while sewing up a fellow prisoner with a finger almost severed by a rat bite, and another ...

The bad news about EMPIRE is that it isn't a parody.

"For everybody -- everybody! -- money is what life is all about," Vic Rosa (John Leguizamo) lectures us in voice-over in one of his many pedantic sermons. Vic compares himself to entrepreneurs past and present, including John D. Rockefeller and Bill Gates. Vic, a local heroin kingpin, is in charge of the drug dealing territory of the Bronx that he calls the Empire. The area is such a rich mother lode that just twenty disputed feet between it and the next gang's turf are worth twenty-thousand dollars a week in revenue. EMPIRE, written and directed by Franc Reyes, comes out with its rhetorical guns blazing, as it takes on capitalism by ...

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;Julie Taymor's FRIDA is a solidly entertaining biopic that's as easy to admire as a Grant Wood painting, which is surprising since the movie tells the story of controversial Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. At its worst it's like a paint-by-numbers picture, but at its best, it sizzles with great Mexican folk music and warmly inviting cinematography.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Kahlo is played energetically by Salma Hayek, who is like a mouse of a woman next to her elephantine co-star, Alfred Molina who plays Kahlo's husband and fellow artist Diego Rivera. Rivera, an infamous womanizer, brags that he is &amp;quot;physiologically incapable of fidelity,&amp;quot; something that Kahlo is aware of when she signs on to be the third Mrs. Rivera. Kahlo turns out to have her own roving eye, spotting male and female prey. Rivera, who lives a comfortably middle-class existence, is an active communist. He likes nothing better than arguing about Stalin vs. Hitler and socialism vs. communism. At one point, Rivera lets Leon Trotsky take refuge in Kahlo's father's house. Trotsky is played badly by Geoffrey Rush who adopts an awful Russian accent.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The most memorable sequence in FRIDA comes when Kahlo is injured for life in a bus accident. The movie's follow-up to the disaster is less satisfying. Although the artist was in pain for the rest of her life, in the movie she appears rather spry and healthy in most of the post-accident scenes except for the weeks just after the accident and just before the end of the film.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Unlike the best artist movies, FRIDA takes little time in examining the creative process. Instead, it is much more interested in the artists' sexual escapades and subsequent arguments. These are quite fun, however, and turn the film into a nicely lurid soap opera, which has the twist of being based on a true story. I like a good soap opera, and, on that level, FRIDA delivers. But the Oscar buzz about it just isn't warranted.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;FRIDA runs too long at 2:00. It is rated R for &amp;quot;sexuality/nudity and language&amp;quot; and would be acceptable for older teenagers.&lt;/p&gt;'

Something similar happens to aging baseball pitcher Billy Chapel (Kevin Costner) in the aptly named, FOR LOVE OF THE GAME.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Throwing what may well be his last game, his entire life flashes by him as he struggles with over-the-hill muscles to eke out one last valiant effort.

His arm gives out quickly these days, and he's been only 8-11 this season.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Some people stop to smell the roses. For Billy, it's a well-worn baseball mitt that has the aroma that excites his nose. Knowing that his last day on the mound has arrived, he even pauses in a packed stadium to gaze upward at the clouds that have graced his many days at the ballpark.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Earlier that day, he came to realize that his career was coming to an end. The owner of his team, the Detroit Tigers, told him that the team was being sold. He recommended that Billy retire because, otherwise, the new owners planned on trading him anyway. A Tiger all of his life, this was a devastating blow. Grimacing, Billy closed his eyes and lowered his head into his hands.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;To add insult to injury, his girlfriend of the past 5 years, Jane Aubrey (Kelly Preston), told him that she was leaving him for a job in London.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&amp;quot;Billy, this ain't your day,&amp;quot; his long-time friend and catcher Gus Osinski (John C. Reilly) tells him.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Directed with an inviting poignancy by Sam Raimi (A SIMPLE PLAN), the movie charms with its old-fashioned story of love. Costner, in one of his best performances in years, creates a character who earns our respect and our sympathy. In his subtly emotive turn as an aging superstar, he manages to make his pain palpable without ever letting things dissolve into schmaltz. Still, you may want to have your handkerchief at the ready since the story has the potential to reduce you to tears as it did several in our audience.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;FOR LOVE OF THE GAME is more a love story than a sports story. Billy is in love with the game and with his girlfriend, but if forced to choose, Jane would up second. Structured as a series of flashbacks, Billy's life is told as he pitches his last game. A good sports movie becomes an even better study of a man and his two loves.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Jane, an innocent looking girl-next-door type, works at a New York fashion magazine writing articles such as &amp;quot;Scents and Sensibilities.&amp;quot; Their affair has carefully structured rules so that they see each other when he's in town for a game, but they are otherwise free to see anyone they like. These rubrics end up causing them much grief.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The chemistry between the two lovers is genuine, and their attraction rises above the sexual. A typical conversation between them has her amazed at his knowing the exact number of games he has lost in his career. &amp;quot;You count them?&amp;quot; she asks with surprise. &amp;quot;We count everything in baseball,&amp;quot; he remarks, showing that he thinks his profession is too pedantic. &amp;quot;That's all we do.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;As they get to know each other better, her questions become more pointed, as she delves deeper into his psyche. &amp;quot;Have you ever got your heart broken?&amp;quot; she wants to know. &amp;quot;Yeah, when we lost the pennant in '87,&amp;quot; he replies, not even realizing that she was speaking of love of another human being.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Lovingly filmed by John Bailey with the twinkling glow of New York at night and with the warm colors of a baseball game, the movie is invitingly sentimental and nostalgic. Paced with the same slow rhythms of a baseball game itself, which will either delight or annoy you, the picture never fails to entertain. It may not belong in quite the same league as THE NATURAL or FIELD OF DREAMS, but it's certainly a hit. Even if it may not quite be a home run, it's an awe-inspiring triple that'll have you cheering and maybe even weeping.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;FOR LOVE OF THE GAME runs a little too long at 2:18. It is rated PG-13 for brief strong language and some sexuality. The movie would be fine for kids around 10 and up.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;My son Jeffrey, age 10, was visibly bored during the movie. He gave it just a single *, complaining that it was too predicable and the flashbacks were too hard to follow. His friend John, age 11, gave it ** 1/2 but had trouble figuring out what was a flashback and what wasn't. John's twin, Steven, liked the movie and gave it ***. All of them felt a bit uncomfortable when the characters discussed with whom they were sleeping.&lt;/p&gt;'

Robert De Niro phones in his performance as Dr. Richard Wells, a fertility expert with a secret, monster-sized clinic in the middle of nowhere. He mysteriously shows up at the funeral of eight-year-old Adam Duncan (Cameron Bright) and offers to cook up a duplicate Adam -- should have tried for Eve -- for Adam's distraught parents, Paul and Jessie Duncan (Greg Kinnear and Rebecca Romijn-Stamos).&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;From the very beginning, the plot is riddled with believability problems. After Paul is mugged by one of his ex-students -- who ends up giving him a pass after recognizing him -- and after he is offered a new teaching job in a safer town at exactly twice his current salary, Paul does what we all would do. He wants to turn it down because he is worried about &amp;quot;selling out.&amp;quot; Right. Dr. Wells obsessively clicks two big steel balls together in the palm of his hand, thereby driving the audience crazy. Hmm, where have we seen this behavior before? My favorite part of the stupid story is that Dr. Wells arranges for the Duncans to be given a lakefront, multimillion dollar mansion to live in with their dup. It is complete with a three-story, spiral staircase and a big basement, whose sole purposes are to serve up visual opportunities for the cinematographer.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The movie -- filled with all the horror movie clichйs of loud, unexpected noises and jump-cut dream sequences -- really doesn't get going until Adam grows up to be eight again. After that, let's just say that he sees dead people and has some bad nightmares that just might come true.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The story is so full of ridiculous moments that it's hard to hold down the laughter. A preposterous and obviously guessed &amp;quot;twist&amp;quot; in the third act was all it took to open the floodgates in our audience. Up until then there was persistent random snickering, but, after the big &amp;quot;surprise,&amp;quot; the guffaws start coming like a Biblical flood. If the movie were a parody, which it most certainly isn't, this could have been a good thing.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&amp;quot;It this for real?&amp;quot; Jessie asks at one point. What she should have asked is, &amp;quot;Is this for laughs?&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;GODSEND runs 1:42. It is rated PG-13 for &amp;quot;violence including frightening images, a scene of sexuality and some thematic material&amp;quot; and would be acceptable for teenagers.&lt;/p&gt;'

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;HIGH CRIMES, which reunites KISS THE GIRLS's Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, is an entertaining mystery and thriller by director Carl Franklin (ONE FALSE MOVE). Set during a military trial that sometimes resembles a kangaroo court, the story is filled with devilish machinations and partially predictable but nonetheless satisfying twists. The plot, involving a military cover-up, isn't the most original, but the adroit cast and crew milk it for all its worth. You'll jump, you'll cheer, you'll laugh and you'll be rooting for the defense team. In short, you'll have a good time.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The thriller gets in gear when Tom (James Caviezel, FREQUENCY), a mild mannered craftsman, is picked up by an FBI swat team on a peaceful San Francisco street. Accompanying him is his loving and lovely wife, Claire (Judd), a likable but tough lawyer. Tom is being arrested for the murder of innocent civilians in a massacre that happened in 1988 in El Salvador while Tom was part of a clandestine military operation.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;A nefarious Brigadier General William Marks (Bruce Davison), who had some part in the El Salvador incident, is working behind the scenes to see that Tom is convicted for this crime which Tom claims that he never committed. The general is &amp;quot;the most decorated, the most powerful, ...&amp;quot;, explains Lt. Terrence Embry (Adam Scott), Tom's barely out-of-puberty, military-appointed counsel, who figures that defeating Marks will be nearly impossible.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The man who makes the movie is Morgan Freeman as Charlie Grimes, an attack dog of a lawyer hired by Claire. A Harley-riding ex-drunk, Charlie works for the prestigious firm of Grimes and Associates, which is the shingle that hangs outside his shack of a home. The &amp;quot;and Associates&amp;quot; refers to his dog. A man who has spent his life irritating the military, he is just the man for the case, but first he must explain the realities of practicing law at a secret military tribunal to Claire.

short-body => 'HIGH CRIMES, which reunites KISS THE GIRLS's Ashley Judd and Morgan Freeman, is an entertaining mystery and thriller by director Carl Franklin (ONE FALSE MOVE). Set during a military trial that sometimes resembles a kangaroo court, the story is filled with devilish machinations and partially predictable but nonetheless satisfying twists. The plot, involving a military cover-up, isn't the most original, but the adroit cast and crew milk it for all its worth. You'll jump, you'll cheer, you'll laugh and you'll be rooting for the defense team. In short, you'll have a good time. The thriller gets in gear when Tom (James Caviezel, FREQUENCY), ...'

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt; MULAN, which we saw being developed in Disney's Florida studios, is the first Disney animated movie produced on the East Coast. The animators we talked with said that they relished the creative freedom that being so far removed from corporate headquarters afforded them. And, as in any skunkworks, the workers used their independence to build the product they most wanted - forget those suits back at headquarters. The impressive result, although not as spectacular as some of Disney's recent offerings, bodes well for this isolated, creative team.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Filmed in medium blues with warm rose accents, the animation is handsome albeit not up to standards of THE LION KING. Best in the crowd sequences, the movie has a most awe-inspiring visual of an attacking horde of Huns, with hundreds of bluish-gray men charging over a snow-covered landscape. Although the film's images are sumptuous, its songs are all eminently forgettable.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Opening with a reluctant and unconfident Mulan fixed up with pancake make-up to look like a porcelain doll, the story has her off to audition to be a bride. (Mulan is voiced by Ming-Na Wen, last seen as the take-charge, sexy wife in ONE NIGHT STAND.) Mulan fails miserably even with a cheat sheet of the right answers written on her arm. She finds her calling in life when she goes undercover in a male warrior suit to take the place of her injured father in the Emperor's campaign against the Hun invasion. Huns, we find, look strikingly similar to Klingon warriors.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;For help, Mulan's ghostly and bickering ancestors unwittingly send along a smart-mouthed, tiny dragon, which Mulan calls a little lizard. Eddie Murphy, who mumbles too many of his lines, plays the dragon, Mushu. A non-speaking, good-luck cricket, Cri-Kee, is Mushu's sidekick. The energetic Murphy tries to be Robin Williams, but Murphy's lines aren't anywhere near ALADDIN quality.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;When Mulan arrives at the Emperor's boot camp, run by a Lyle Lovett lookalike, she finds it full of snaggletoothed, male buffoons. The recruits try to out macho each other with lines like, &amp;quot;I'm going to hit you so hard it will make your ancestors dizzy.&amp;quot; She tries without much success to be a masculine toughie by spitting and doing other guy stuff.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Mushu is not impressed with her initial progress. &amp;quot;Oh, I think my bunny slippers just ran for cover,&amp;quot; he mocks her after her first attempts at fighting like a soldier. With shades of G. I. JANE, Mulan soon goes from being a walking disaster to being the star pupil.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Mulan doesn't reject her feminine side. &amp;quot;Just because I look like a man doesn't mean I have to smell like one,&amp;quot; she says before skinny-dipping in the closest stream. To her consternation, her fellow troops decide to join her in a scene both funny and sexual, even if not exactly the shower scene from STARSHIP TROOPERS.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The film's message is easily seen in the big Hun battle. When faced with overwhelming odds, the Emperor's men plan on dying with honor. Mulan, on the other hand, devises a winning strategy that allows the other side to perish in glory instead.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt; MULAN runs 1:38. It is rated G and would be fine for all ages.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;My son Jeffrey, age 9, gave the film ***. His favorite line was the father's &amp;quot;the greatest gift and honor is having you as a daughter.&amp;quot; He thought the dragon was really funny and the film's ending especially good. His buddy, Nickolas, age 9, gave the picture ** Ѕ. He liked the way Mulan always thought of new ideas, but he thought parts of the story dragged.&lt;/p&gt;'

Advertised as a comedy, the picture, thanks to Sally's Field's inept direction and Jon Bernstein's dull script, is, instead, a depressing drama.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;With beauty pageants as its subject, BEAUTIFUL should have been an easy success. Is there anything easier to satirize than beauty pageants? Last year's marvelously funny DROP DEAD GORGEOUS showed what is possible. Even if BEAUTIFUL can't rise to that level, does it have to be so painful to watch? Every performance is gratingly awful, and all the roles are badly miscast.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Attractive Minnie Driver, as Mona Hibbard, the story's protagonist, doesn't have the body for a beauty pageant winner. Her head and her bones are too large, and her movements are too awkward. She's a terrific actress, but even she can't pull this one off, especially given how badly and unsympathetically her part is written.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;To give you an idea of just how ugly BEAUTIFUL can be, one of the key subplots concerns Mona's disowning her own daughter, Vanessa. It seems that you can't be Miss American Miss if you have children. When Mona, who likes to sleep her way to victory, comes up pregnant, she keeps the baby but tries to claim that she is the child of her friend Ruby (Joey Lauren Adams). Vanessa is played cloyingly by Hallie Kate Eisenberg (PAULIE).&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Incidents in BEAUTIFUL will more likely have you going &amp;quot;yuck&amp;quot; than laughing. When the teenaged Mona is starting off in the beauty world, she sleeps with a whistle. At night, as she cuddles with her plush toy in bed, she has her whistle at the ready in order to ward off her lecherous father. At least it works so that we don't witness child abuse.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Since the teenaged Mona isn't even finishing in &amp;quot;the top 20&amp;quot; of contests that don't seem to have more than a dozen entrants, she hires a beauty consultant. This consultant is played by none other than Kathleen Turner (BABY GENIUSES), which again proves the rule that I've had for the past decade. Any movie willing to have Kathleen Turner in it is bound to be a stinker. Yes, she was once a good actress. The operative word in that last sentence is &amp;quot;was.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;BEAUTIFUL should have been released as a TV movie. If so, it would have been a decidedly below average TV movie. Actually, were it not for Sally Field and Minnie Driver being associated with the production, it would never have been released in any venue.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;BEAUTIFUL runs a long 1:52. It is rated PG-13 for language and thematic elements. Although it would be acceptable for kids 11 and up, I would not recommend this to anyone of any age.&lt;/p&gt;'

__domel__body => '&lt;p&gt;In Louis Morneau's BATS, these unnecessarily maligned creatures are noshing on the residents of Gallop, Texas -- not that you'll care. A direct rip-off of THE BIRDS, although without any of its suspense and with no improvements in the special effects over Hitchcock's 1963 classic, this cheap-looking movie never rises above the level of a popcorn flick. Check your brain at the door, order lots of snacks from the concession stand and eat slowly. You won't exactly be entertained, but you'll probably stay awake as you munch away.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;So which actors set off your casting red flags? For me they include Lou Diamond Phillips and Burt Reynolds, although both, admittedly, have -- on rare occasions -- done some nice acting. This movie stars Lou Diamond Phillips as Emmett Kimsey, the sheriff of the unlucky Texas town. (The cast, thankfully, doesn't include Reynolds.) Kimsey will do and say more dumb things that you can count.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The problem with the direction and with John Logan's script is that both treat the laughably bad material with dead seriousness. Only as a parody does the show have a chance. Phillips costars with Dina Meyer as bat expert Dr. Sheila Casper. No matter how ludicrous the story gets, Meyer acts like she thinks she's making a public health documentary about some genuine threat.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;(A self-styled &amp;quot;Bat Lady&amp;quot; came recently to my son's scout meeting in order to show us real bats, most of whose bite can't even break your skin, and to dispel their undeserved nefarious reputation. Bats, which she spends her entire life rescuing, are a natural and necessary predator for insects and are absolutely no threat to man except when rabid. And when rabid, they are too sick to fly, so about the only way to get hurt is to stick your finger next to them as they lie helpless.)&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&amp;quot;Bats don't kill people. Period,&amp;quot; Sheila informs the sheriff. &amp;quot;So there must be some other explanation.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Yes, there is, and it's the standard clichй of a secret government project run by an evil scientist, Dr. Alexander McCabe (Bob Gunton), who'll try to thwart the killer bats' destruction.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Sheila's black assistant, Jimmy Sands (Leуn), in a heavily stereotyped role, at least tries -- without any success -- to elicit a few much needed laughs. A man who makes his living studying bats, Jimmy doesn't think much of them. &amp;quot;I like 'em, but at a distance, a real distance like on 'Wild Kingdom,'&amp;quot; he explains to his boss Sheila.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Among Jimmy's other lines in the unoriginal script are: &amp;quot;Houston, we've got a problem,&amp;quot; and &amp;quot;I don't know about the rest of you, but I don't want anyone moving up the food chain. Period.&amp;quot; (People say &amp;quot;Period&amp;quot; a lot in this film. It's the writer's pedantic way of reminding you of the supposed importance of the sentence.)&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The movie falls back on every tired horror movie clichй. Take Lover's Lane. When you were a teenager, you might have had some fun and memorable times there. But in horror movies, nothing good ever happens to kids who visit one. And in this movie nothing good ever happens for the audience. Enjoy that popcorn. It'll be the best part of the experience of watching BATS.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;BATS runs 1:30. It is incorrectly rated PG-13 for intense sequences of bat attacks and brief language. Having bloody corpses with guts everywhere and showing ferocious attacks, the movie clearly should have been rated R by the MPAA, not PG-13. The film would be acceptable for those teenagers who aren't prone to nightmares, but the movie is inappropriate for anyone less than 13.&lt;/p&gt;'

They are all getting cranky, having spent a couple of months in hotel rooms while waiting for the bureaucrats of some unnamed Latin American country to approve their adoption of local babies.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The movie, which might work as a play, has two modes. In one, it keeps lecturing us about the pervasive poverty in this Spanish speaking country. The poorest kids steal out of necessity, and the slightly better off ones have to go to school wearing shoes that are too tight. We are provided with example after example in order to insure that we get the point. The pedantic picture also labors to show how these women, all but one of whom speak basically no Spanish, don't have a clue as to the dire situations of the local citizens.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The second, and much more effective mode, has the women engage in some insightful and frequently funny dialog. Taylor, as the only single mother-to-be, gets the lion's share of the script's best lines. &amp;quot;I've got sox older than you&amp;quot;, she says in a put-down line to a young hunk who tries hitting on her at the beach. &amp;quot;I figure that if [my daughter] doesn't absolutely despise me by the eighth grade, I'm ahead of the game,&amp;quot; Leslie tells Gayle. And, of the local television trash, she says to one of the other women, &amp;quot;You don't need the words to watch TV. Stupidity is the universal language.&amp;quot;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;If you weren't aware that Americans have a much higher standard of living than Latin Americans or if you just like being entertained with some witty dialog, CASA DE LOS BABYS is a reasonable choice. On the other hand, if you're looking for something truly worthy of being called a Sayles movie, just rent one of his older ones like LONE STAR.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;CASA DE LOS BABYS runs 1:36.

Watching the movie, you find yourself increasingly ignoring the stories -- a prisoner/medic smokes crack while sewing up a fellow prisoner with a finger almost severed by a rat bite, and another prisoner talks about his two &amp;quot;wives,&amp;quot; one who likes to be bitten on the butt during sex and his other wife who is so jealous that she sets the bed on fire. Instead of following the storyline, you begin to think about the conditions of the prison itself.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;Disease in the prison runs rampant because of the extremely unsanitary conditions and because of the dangerous behaviors of the inmates. Hard drugs are readily available and unprotected sex is common practice. The men, most of whom seem to be HIV-positive or to already have AIDS, share the disease with their wives and girlfriends on the regular family visits. The prison itself doesn't look like one, appearing more like a gang-infested slum. The guards stay on the walls, leaving the prisoners to self-regulate themselves in a LORD OF THE FLIES fashion.&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;&lt;/p&gt;<br /> &lt;p&gt;The acting is all good save the most central character of all, the prison doctor, who relates the story.
