Times Staff WriterIn "The Secret Lives of Dentists" Alan Rudolph sketches a portrait of a seemingly idyllic marriage with briskness, economy, wit and grace. The film is essentially an extended vignette, as the couple deals with an unexpected but mundane crisis, and one...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday November 21, 1997 In the topsy-turvy world of feature animation, the best news about "Anastasia" would be bad news anywhere else. Every aspect of what's on the screen, from attractive lovers to campy villains and too cute animal sidekicks, is...
Times Staff Writer"Duplex" is a mildly diverting dark comedy, directed with amiable mischievousness by Danny DeVito and starring an appealing Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore. Its drawback is that it's a one-joke affair, leading to a repetitiousness that makes the film...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday April 9, 1999 It's taken some years, but Drew Barrymore's career has finally come full circle. After she became America's moppet sweetheart in 1982's "E.T.," the actress' work and image took a series of hairpin turns, but now, with "Never...

TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday April 28, 2000 The 1994 movie "The Flintstones" was such a dreary affair that it's hard to get excited about a new film based on that 1960s cartoon classic. The earlier movie re-created signature scenes from the television series while...
TIMES FILM CRITICFriday July 28, 2000 "Nutty Professor II: The Klumps" is all Eddie, all the time. When the cast list appears at the end of this benighted sequel, the active Mr. Murphy is credited with eight roles. While this surely has its advantages (fewer star...

TIMES FILM CRITICFriday October 20, 2000 Selling your soul to the devil is not just a figure of speech, it happens in the movie business all the time. In fact, it seems to have happened with "Bedazzled," a film about just such a transaction. Inspired by the...
TIMES STAFF WRITERWednesday November 22, 2000 "102 Dalmatians" is 101 too many, but that's not likely to deter anyone who enjoyed the 1996 "101 Dalmatians," which in turn was a lavish live-action remake of Disney's much-loved 1961 animated classic. Still, you can't...
