Bereft Review


OK
It took two guys to direct this? Vinessa Shaw isn't really enough of an actress to carry such a weighty role, starring (in nearly every scene) as a woman who's distraught over her dead husband, who was run over by a car while jogging. To cope, she snaps photographs, shoplifts, and hangs out with a local freak (Tim Blake Nelson). Meanwhile, her parents want her to move on with her life, and after 90 minutes, so do we.

A House Divided Review


OK
At least it wasn't hideous... but this Beloved-esque tale of a white plantation owner (Waterston) in Lincoln-era Georgia who has a mixed-race daughter (Beals) by one of his slaves (Hamilton) is so dull it stifles what little energy there is in the story. When the big guy dies, his will -- which leaves almost everything to the daughter -- is contested. Will it stand up against bigotry? Ultimately, it's challenging material made dumb... you know, for Showtime.

Seven Girlfriends Review


Weak
Tim Daly is forgettable as a west coast dude evaluating his past loves after yet another relationship disaster. Studded with don't-I-know-her? Starlets, you aren't likely to learn anything new about romance, though you might find the trip not entirely awful. So-so.

Diner Review


Excellent
Six guys try to make sense of their lives before one of them is married. But why would anyone want to marry Steve Guttenberg (in the only good role of his life, I think)? Witty and fun.

Against The Ropes Review


Weak

Famous female boxing manager Jackie Kallen's real life is quite a good story about perseverance and tenacity in the toughest and nastiest of men's worlds.

Kallen was once a journalist who early in her career talked the Rolling Stones into coming to her mom's house for dinner and an interview, and whose dogged single-mindedness landed her a 1976 exclusive with notoriously press-shy Detroit pitcher Mark "the Bird" Fidrych. But writing a story on boxer Thomas "Hit Man" Hearns led her to change careers, becoming a publicist and then a manager for several up-and-coming fighters in the 1980s -- a choice that was met with a lot of resistance in the sport. In fact, she got a cornerman's license because she wasn't being allowed in the ring with her clients. And she did all this while raising two daughters.

But the real Jackie Kallen has very little to do with "Against the Ropes," a grossly over-fictionalized biopic starring Meg Ryan as a frisky, charmingly trashy, tough-cookie version of Kallen who has a soundtrack of perky flutes and violins lending girl-power twinkle to everything she does -- and sucking all the sports credibility out of the movie.
