Shull, Bobby Di Cicco, Howard Morris release year: 1984 film rating: Four stars sound/picture rating: Four stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Splash was the first for many landmarks: the first PG-rated movie released by Disney studios, the first release under their Touchstone label, Tom Hanks’ first starring movie role, and Ron Howard’s first big-studio film as director. Howard had directed a Roger Corman low-budgeter and a couple of TV movies; Hanks had appeared in a TV movie and a little-known slasher/horror movie, He Knows You’re Alone. Daryl Hannah had made a few more movies, including a memorable appearance in Blade Runner.

title: Singles 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: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, Matt Dillon, Bill Pullman release year: 1992 film rating: Three Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren ‘Singles’ is a witty, amiable romantic comedy that follows misadventures of the heart among a group of twenty-something Seattle residents. Ad exec Linda (Kyra Sedgwick), reeling from a breakup, warily becomes involved with Steve (Campbell Scott), a Department of Transportation employee who is passionate on the subject of gridlock. Bright waitress Janet (Bridget Fonda) is mad about boneheaded, untalented grunge rocker Chris (Matt Dillon). And tense poseur Debbie (Sheila Kelley) signs up with a video dating service in the hopes of finding Mr. Right.

Our profession dictates that we have fairly extensive vocabularies; we should not have to resort to name-calling. However, sometimes only a word like "lame" will do.

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.

title: Sleepless In Seattle 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: Columbia TriStar Home Video MPAA rating: PG starring: Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Bill Pullman, Ross Malinger, Rosie O'Donnell release year: 1993 film rating: Two and One-Half Stars reviewed by: Bill Warren 'Sleepless in Seattle' is a romantic comedy of surpassing slickness. 'Sleepless' director/co-writer Nora Ephron and stars Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan all recently worked together again on the 1998 hit 'You've Got Mail.' Even if you enjoyed 'You've Got Mail' (I did), that's no guarantee you'll have fond feelings for the earlier collaboration.
