NEW YORK – Al Pacino, Wesley Snipes, Matthew Perry, and Robin Williams in the out-of-character glare of The Foxlight.
The question isn't 'Who is Simone?' It's what is she? The obvious answer is beautiful, but that beauty is in the eye of one beholder -- Al Pacino. He's the Frankenstein that's doctored up a computer generated cyber babe. The trouble is, he's passing her off as the real thing. It's a great ruse for a while. And an even better film. Now if I could just get an interview with her. Oh, that's right, she isn't real. But this all looks too good.
Next, Wesley Snipes is in prison and has to fight Ving Rhames in Walter Hill's Undisputed. They should all be fighting for better agents according to most reviews.
Matthew Perry and Elizabeth Hurley are thrown together and guess what? They fall for one another in Serving Sara. But this film is more infamous for what Perry was being served off camera -- a lot of drinks. This is the project he walked off of for rehab, halting production. Here's a game if you go to the movie: see if you can tell the clean and sober scenes from the pre-rehab ones.
Finally, critics everywhere are forgiving Robin Williams for Patch Adams, Jakob the Liar, Death to Smoochy and Bicentennial Man. OK, maybe not Bicentennial Man. Williams gives an Oscar-caliber creep out performance in the independent chill fest, One Hour Photo. It should also give a serious boost to Polaroid cameras.
