title: The Replacements 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: Keanu Reeves, Gene Hackman, Orlando Jones, Rhys Ifans release year: 2000 film rating: Two-and-a-Half Stars reviewed by: Abbie Bernstein ‘The Replacements’ teeters between being fitfully diverting and annoying during its running time. In hindsight after an initial theatrical viewing, its transitory pleasures recede, leaving a bad taste behind; watching it on DVD a second time makes its irritants more pronounced.

title: Love & Basketball 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: New Line Home Video MPAA rating: PG-13 starring: Sanaa Lathan, Omar Epps, Dennis Haysbert, Debbi Morgan, Alfre Woodward, Harry J. Lennix, Regina Hall, Kyla Pratt, Glenndon Chatman. release year: 2000 film rating: Three-and-a-half stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Back in the 1930s, some wiseacre declared that the basic movie story was "boy meets girl, boy loses girl, boy gets girl," and of course, that really is the boiled-down plot of a lot of movies, including "Love & Basketball." In fact, the sheer familiarity of this undeveloped boy-meets-girl idea is comforting; it's the stuff of all romantic melodramas and comedies. We don't want to see boy NOT get girl, after all. It's the details that flesh out the idea that make the movies matter to us.

title: Any Given Sunday 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: Warner Home Video MPAA rating: R (157 Minutes) starring: Al Pacino, Cameron Diaz, Dennis Quaid, James Woods, Jamie Foxx, LL Cool J, Charlton Heston, Matthew Modine, Aaron Eckhart release year: 1999 film rating: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren All too often, this movie is so loud, noisy and chaotic that it's like having your head in a washing machine full of marbles. It's dizzying, deafening, frenetic, and you don't know why you're there. The rest of the time, "Any Given Sunday" sometimes gets by on sheer nerve, bravura acting and velocity. It's far from Oliver Stone's best movie, but much better than "U-Turn" or "Nixon," and he's giving it his flashy, trashy all. He has a huge and busy cast, the football scenes are staged with flair and energy, the score is imaginative, and lord knows it's earnest. But for those not deeply into football, at almost 160 minutes it's also exhausting. Even for those who ...

title: Beyond The Mat (Director's Cut) 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(); &lt;br&gt; studio: Universal Home Video MPAA rating: This version not rated, but the theatrical cut was rated R starring: Barry W. Blaustein, Terry Funk, Nick Foley, Jake Roberts, Vince McMahon, Roland Alexander, Jesse Ventura release year: 1999 film rating: Four stars sound/picture: Three stars reviewed by: Bill Warren Barry W. Blaustein is a successful screenwriter, though the quality of his output varies, from "Coming to America" down to "Boomerang," and from "The Nutty Professor" (1996) down to "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps." But ever since childhood, he's been a big fan of professional wrestling, and with this heart-felt and entertaining documentary, he tried to get behind the wrestling scene, or, as the title says, "Beyond the Mat." While it's very unlikely that this film will convert anyone into a fan of pro wrestling, several of the wrestlers come vividly to life as real people, for better and for worse. The movie was given scant theatrical release, probably ...

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 ...
