NEW YORK – Drew Barrymore (search) and Ben Stiller move in, the low-down on "The Rundown" and Diane Lane looks pretty in "Under the Tuscan Sun" in today's Foxlight.
Drew Barrymore and Ben Stiller (search) want to be good neighbors. But the old lady upstairs has other ideas. "The Duplex" is every New Yorker's nightmare. But how will it play off the island? One New York critic says it's like a "Saturday Night Live" sketch stretched over a few hours. Danny DeVito directs, and you remember what happened last time -- "Death to Smoochy." Drew and Ben are cute. That lasts just through the opening credits.
Want a little action instead? Head down the Amazon with The Rock (search) in "The Rundown." This was supposed to star Patrick Swayze a few years ago -- maybe he swapped with The Rock for "Dirty Dancing." Probably not. Christopher Walken is on hand as -- are you sitting down -- a bad guy. The Rock grunts a lot and flexes his muscles, but acting? He's perfectly named.
Finally, I'm a huge fan of Diane Lane (search) and was glad her career got somewhat of a post-40 boost with "Unfaithful." Now unfaithful is what she may be able to call her agent. She looks radiant in "Under the Tuscan Sun," but Jeffery Wells from Moviepoopshoot.com says this thing doesn't even work as a chick flick. He left 25 minutes in. Hey, she has great lighting.
