title: I Am Sam function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: New Line Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Sean Penn, Michelle Pfeiffer, Dakota Fanning, Dianne Wiest, Loretta Devine, Richard Schiff, Laura Dern, Brad Allan Silverman, Joseph Rosenberg, Stanley DeSantis, Doug Hutchison, Rosalind Chao release year: 2001 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Tara O'Shea Near as I can tell, Sean Penn wants to be Dustin Hoffman. In "I Am Sam," Penn channels not one but two of Hoffman's most memorable characters as he portrays Sam Dawson, a borderline autistic with the emotional maturity of a seven-year-old and an obsessive love of the Beatles. After a run-in with a hooker, Sam finds himself fighting for custody of his seven-year-old daughter Lucy in a script that is equal parts "Rainman" and "Kramer vs. Kramer." Michelle Pfeiffer co-stars as Rita, his caffeine-addicted, high-powered but emotionally stunted lawyer, and newcomer Dakota Fanning plays Lucy, a wise little girl forced to act as parent to her mentally challenged father. Dianne Wiest has ...

title: Patch Adams function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();<br> studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Robin Williams, Monica Potter, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Bob Guntonl release year: 1998 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein With its heart in the right place and its funny bone nearby (if muted), ‘Patch Adams’ is an agreeable man-against-the-system tale. If it’s not exactly "inspiring" (as the box blurb claims), it is often funny, consistently well-made and usually engaging.

title: The Hustler (Special Edition) function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close(); studio: 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment MPAA rating: NR starring: Paul Newman, Piper Laurie, George C. Scott, Jackie Gleason release year: 2002 film rating: Five Stars sound/picture: Five Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Fast Eddie Felson (Paul Newman) is a pool hustler who’s determined to make his mark on greatness. That search for self-actualization leads him to Ames Pool Hall in New York City where he meets up with pool legend Minnesota Fats (Jackie Gleason). Felson is absolutely the best pool shooter who ever lived, but he’s got fatal flaws: his own ego and insecurities. His foray at taking the cash and the title from Minnesota Fats rips away Eddie’s confidence and leaves him torn apart. Licking his wounds, Eddie finds a young woman named Sarah (Piper Laurie), who has her own dark secrets. Together, these two incomplete people help each other find their way back to health and happiness. But there’s a devil waiting in the ...

title: The Temp function popUp(URL,NAME) { amznwin=window.open(URL,NAME,'location=yes,scrollbars=yes,status=yes,toolbar=yes,resizable=yes,width=380,height=450,screenX=10,screenY=10,top=10,left=10'); amznwin.focus();} document.open(); document.write(""); document.close();<br> studio: Paramount Home Entertainment MPAA rating: R starring: Timothy Hutton, Lara Flynn Boyle, Dwight Schultz, Oliver Platt, Faye Dunaway release year: 1993 film rating: Two Stars sound/picture: Three Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "The Temp" is in reality a theatrical release, but one can be forgiven for thinking it was made for TV. After all, this kind of thriller, although fairly common in theatres in the ‘70s and early ‘80s, is now mostly relegated to the small screen. It’s down to a formula: Person A is trying to get his or her life together after making some bad decisions. Person B shows up and is incredibly helpful. Then Person B does some things that make Person A vaguely suspicious, with Person B seeming more and more ominous as the story continues.
