The former child actor, who played Smalls in the movie 'Sandlot,' was arrested in Houston over the weekend after a violent encounter with cops
Tom Guiry, the former child star who gained fame for his role as Smalls in the film Sandlot, was taken into police custody this weekend following a violent run-in with cops at Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. The 31-year-old was deemed too drunk to board his plane and when he started getting leary that's when police were called in, but the drama didn't stop there.

According to the police report filed by local authorities, and as first reported by TMZ, Guiry was at Houston airport this weekend and was attempting to board his United Airlines flight, when an employee for the airline company decided that he was too drunk to fly. Clearly angry with the employee's judgement call, Guiry forced the employee to call airport security, who arrived at the scene to place him under arrest and cite him for public intoxication, but it wasn't that easy to cite the actor for the incident.

He came of age, and headbutted a cop
Sandlot actor Tom Guiry, who played Smalls in the hit movie of the 1990s, has been arrested for headbutting a cop and trying to kick him in the face.
In one of the more bizarre stories to come out of tinseltown for some time, TMZ.com report how Guiry was at Bush International Airport in Houston over the weekend when a United Airlines employee concluded he was too drunk to fly. Ah, this old story huh?
The employee contacted an airport copy, who approached Guiry and gave him two options: a public intoxication arrest or jail. The former child actor took the third option, headbutt the cop after a barrage of verbal abuse.

Both the credit and the blame go to writer-director Robert Celestino. His cornball plot shouldn't work, but his direction, especially with actors, does. Chazz Palminteri (Celestino's executive producer) is the title guy, a gambling stiff with an amazing ability to cheat crap games. He'll belly up to a table, pull some David Blaine-like moves to drop tainted dice into a game, and make a fortune. Unfortunately, Atlantic City security has his number, and private games are too small for his ambitions.

Frankly, I saw this movie an hour ago and I've already forgotten the plot. Oh yeah, looking it up reveals that this was a movie about a runaway girl (Palladino), who in 1959 finds her life in tumult. Her roommate (Richardson) struggles with an unintended pregnancy. Landlady (Bloom, in a frightening return to the screen) is a faded and eccentric screen star. Audience struggles to maintain consciousness.

Joel Schumacher, director of some of the worst films in a generation (8MM, Batman & Robin, Batman Forever), redeems himself with his first really good flick since Falling Down in 1993. A tale of army recruits in their final days of training before heading to Vietnam in 1971, Tigerland is an original and modestly powerful anti-war film that never even goes "in country."

This lighthearted comedy features the Teenage Girl Class of 1998 in a silly prep school that is about to do the unthinkable: admit boys. Amidst the bulimia and the hair dye pranks, there's not much learnin' to be done so why not hatch a plan to get the boys banned for life? All this culminates in an obviously re-edited (the film has lost 20-some minutes of running time and has earned a new, meaningless title) strike with the gals taking over the school.

It may be an adaptation of one of Shakespeare's most famous dramas, but "Scotland, PA" is anything but deadly serious. It's deliriously funny, fast and loose, accessible to the uninitiated, and full of surprises.
Who'd have thought murder and madness of "Macbeth" could become a black comedy set in a 1970s fast food diner? Who'd have imagined the three witches, who open the play with their ominous predictions, as pothead hippies with a Magic 8-Ball? Or Macduff, the general who swears revenge for his king's murder, as a police lieutenant played with deadpan delight by Christopher Walken? Who could have imagined TV sweetheart Maura Tierney ("Newsradio," "E.R.") would make such a deliciously conniving, yet sympathetically human, bitch-on-wheels Lady Macbeth?
Oh, pardon me. That would be Pat McBeth, wife of the most under-appreciated burger flipper at Duncan's Diner. Joe McBeth (James LeGros) -- "Mac" to his friends -- is a wage slave schmoe with what he thinks is a great lifetime ambition: To pitch his "revolutionary" vision of opening a drive-through window to his boss, who will be so impressed that he'll make Mac his new manager.
