Pretty much every rowdy teen comedy made since has attempted to either copy outright or somehow improve upon ‘Animal’s mixture of outrageous pranks, irreverence, anarchic high spirits and palpable camaraderie.

Macy, Liesel Matthew, Dean Stockwell, Glenn Close release year: 1997 film rating: Four stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Public faith in the President of the United States being what it has been for the past few decades, depicting the Chief Executive as an unambiguous hero might seem like a questionable stroke, but when he's played by Harrison Ford, heck, anybody would vote for him. Cast as a classic good guy, Ford is such an unimpeachable icon of action rectitude and empathy--able to fight like a master soldier and hang on in situations that would kill lesser men, yet still sweat and show fear like the rest of us--that we cheer for him as he brings new meaning to the notion of hands-on crisis. 'Air Force One,' should you somehow have missed last summer's press blitz, is a taut adrenaline-pumper in ...

title: Air Bud 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: Walt Disney Home Video MPAA rating: G starring: Michael Jeter, Kevin Zegers, Wendy Makkena, Eric Christmas, Bill Cobbs, Buddy the dog release year: 1997 film rating: Three stars sound/picture: Two and a half stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Question: doesn't putting out a full-frame DVD for a film that was originally shot with a widescreen aspect ratio defeat half the purpose of having the movie on DVD in the first place? If you can get past this and you like animals, 'Air Bud' turns out to be a perfectly decent boy-and-his-dog movie. It's sweet and even borderline plausible, a lot closer to an updated version of 'Lassie' than its far-fetched premise might suggest. Buddy is a golden retriever, who escapes from a cruel owner and finds refuge with young Josh, whose mom has just moved the family to a new town following the death of Josh's dad. Buddy turns out to have a talent for playing basketball, which is ...

title: Sling Blade 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: Miramax MPAA rating: R starring: Billy Bob Thornton, Dwight Yoakam, J.T. Walsh, John Ritter, Lucas Black, Natalie Canerday, Robert Duvall release year: 1996 reviewed by: Bill Warren Forward up to just about any chapter heading on 'Sling Blade' and chances are you'll find a scene that works as its own stand-alone story as well as it fits into the film as a whole. Director/writer/star Billy Bob Thornton won the 1996 Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay (from his own stage play) and it's not hard to see why. Thornton is a filmmaker who knows how to create suspense and characterization without raising his voice.

title: While You Were Sleeping 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: Hollywood Pictures Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Sandra Bullock, Bill Pullman, Peter Gallagher, Peter Boyle release year: 1995 reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein Sandra Bullock is so thoroughly associated with romantic comedies these days that it's a little startling to remember that she came to mass public attention only four years ago opposite Keanu Reeves in 'Speed.' 'Speed' was a terrific movie and Bullock was great in it, but it's not exactly the genre she's become best known for. 'While You Were Sleeping,' released the following year, can be credited for perma-gluing Bullock to the concept of cheery love stories.
