title: Serendipity 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: Buena Vista Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: John Cusack, Kate Beckinsale, Molly Shannon, Bridget Moynahan, Eugene Levy release year: 2001 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Four Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom "Serendipity" delivers exactly what it promises: a splendid romance with involving characters. Although Jonathan (John Cusack) and Sara (Kate Beckinsale) aren’t deep characters and the audience doesn’t get to discover much about their backgrounds during the course of the film, the viewer is willingly pulled into the gentle comedy and touching love story.

title: Groundhog Day (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: Columbia/TriStar Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Bill Murray, Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott release year: 1993 film rating: Four Stars sound/picture: Three-and-a-half Stars reviewed by: Mel Odom Anyone who fell in love with Bill Murray’s sarcastic schtick on "Saturday Night Live" and views "Groundhog Day" for the first time will be totally unprepared for the heartwarming performance the comedic actor delivers. The barbed humor, the acidic retorts, the sarcastic commentary given as asides more or less to the audience are all familiar to Murray’s fans ("Caddyshack," "Stripes," "Charlie’s Angels," "Ghostbusters"). However, a viewer who hasn’t seen the actor in his other semi-serious roles ("The Razor’s Edge," "Where the Buffalo Roam"), wouldn’t expect the performance Murray delivers in "Groundhog Day."

title: The Princess Bride 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: MGM/UA Home Entertainment MPAA rating: PG starring: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Andre the Giant, Chris Sarandon, Christopher Guest, Billy Crystal release year: 1987 film rating: Four Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die." The preceding statement is likely to elicit one of two reactions from listeners, either "Huh?" or "Ahhh, time to watch ‘The Princess Bride’ again!"

title: What Women Want 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: PG-13 starring: Mel Gibson, Helen Hunt, Marisa Tomei, Alan Alda release year: 2000 film rating: Three-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein "What Women Want" is a romantic comedy of such easygoing charm and deft humor that it seems to virtually glide across the screen – not unlike Mel Gibson in a charming Chapter 4 sequence that pays visual homage to Gene Kelly, audio tribute to Frank Sinatra and generally sets the tone for what is to follow.

title: Pretty Woman 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: Touchstone Home Video MPAA rating: R starring: Richard Gere, Julia Roberts release year: 1990 reviewed by: Bill Warren Popular lore has it that 'Pretty Woman' is the movie to show if you have an at-home date with a heterosexual female in the 18-20 age range. Like all generalizations, this may not hold up in every circumstance, but one shouldn't underestimate the appeal of a movie that is, at heart, 'My Fair Lady' in a hipper, sexier guise.
