While Andie MacDowell has spent much of the last few years in little-seen bombs like Just the Ticket, Reaching Normal, and the now-legendary Town & Country, she seems poised to re-emerge as a hot ticket in spring 2002. Perhaps not a huge, hot-selling ticket, but an actress whose skills and range will reach a larger audience than the ones provided by those previous duds. With Harrison's Flowers and the comedy-drama Crush, a primarily alterna-theater crowd will get to enjoy the woman they first met in sex, lies, and videotape - and in Crush, they'll get to see plenty more of the sex and the lies.
