Times Staff WriterAlexander Payne is a final-cut director, which means that when he showed New Line Cinema his new Jack Nicholson film, "About Schmidt," it was essentially the movie he wanted released. But rather than defer to the Oscar-nominated "Election" filmmaker,...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday October 17, 1997 Welcome to the movies, but not the kind that advertise in family newspapers. Movies without development deals, agents or talky scripts, where crews are small and lighting is haphazard because the director understands "there...
Times Staff WriterAside from their tight jeans and hot wheels, the 1970s television team of "Starsky & Hutch" always seemed hopelessly dorky to me. Maybe it was their dry look (or those tight jeans), but David Soul (as Hutch) and Paul Michael Glaser (Starsky) didn't come...
Times Staff WriterIt must be great fun to be a pal of Adam Sandler's. Being a member of his audience is considerably less of a treat. "Mr. Deeds," Sandler's latest film, was put on paper by Tim Herlihy, said to be the star's college roommate, who's written or co-written...
Times Staff WriterIn Hollywood, if you can't get someone's attention, you can always try to buy it. Witness the unusual ad campaign that Universal Pictures is mounting on behalf of "8 Mile," starring Eminem. The film opened in November to strong reviews from some of the...

TIMES FILM CRITICFriday December 17, 1999 "Magnolia" is drunk and disorderly on the pure joy of making movies. A frantic, flawed, fascinating film that is both impressive and a bit out of control, often at the same time, "Magnolia" may occasionally overshoot its...
The Hartford CourantBetween the end of summer and the edge of winter and the holiday season, the movies shrink. The budgets are lower; the weekend totals dip. As young acolytes await the second coming of Harry Potter on Nov. 15 and older fans count the days until Pierce...
Times Staff WriterThe late porn star John C. Holmes was known for exactly one thing — one freakishly big thing. That big thing made him famous during the 1970s and, from the evidence of his pathetic rise and fall, it's what made him believe he could beat the odds. He...

TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday March 30, 2001 "Tomcats," a raunchy and rowdy comedy targeting young males, stars Jerry O'Connell as a likable guy with a serious problem and a short time to solve it. O'Connell's Michael Delaney is an aspiring L.A.-based cartoonist who's...
Times Staff WriterIn director Edward Zwick's sweeping sentimental fiction "The Last Samurai," the most modern of all screen stars, Tom Cruise, plays an embittered 1870s U.S. Army captain spiritually reborn by embracing the Way of the Samurai. Recruited by Japanese...
Sun Movie CriticHail, hail, the "Gang"'s finally here. That would be "Gangs of New York", Martin Scorsese's long-awaited latest, an epic tale of love and loyalties, played out among the rival immigrant groups of 19th-century New York City. Not since "Titanic" has a film...
