Times Staff WriterSouthern California exports filmed images of sunshine to the eyeballs of kids around the nation, so it's only fair that snowy upstate New York gets its chance at being the locale of childhood fantasies. However, "Snow Day," a harmless co-...
SPECIAL TO THE TIMESFriday December 3, 1999 If Cinderella lived in Dublin, reared seven children and found her Prince Charming in the guise of a doughy French baker, she might resemble Agnes Browne. There is a lovely Cinderella moment in "Agnes Browne,"...
TIMES STAFF WRITERFriday December 3, 1999 "Holy Smoke," a high-risk, darkly comic triumph, is the most unabashedly outrageous movie Jane Campion has made since her debut, "Sweetie," a decade ago. Like that film's heroine "Holy Smoke's" Ruth is at intense odds with...

Times Staff WriterAn adrenaline shot to the movie heart, soul and mind, Quentin Tarantino's "Kill Bill Vol. 2" is a blast of pure pop pleasure. The second half of Tarantino's long-gestating epic, "Vol. 2" firmly lays to rest the doubts raised by "Vol. 1" as to whether...

Tribune staff reporterFollowing the tepid "Showtime" and the flat-lined "Dr. Dolittle 2," "Pluto Nash" invokes the three-strikes-and-you're-out rule that, if nothing else, puts Eddie Murphy in underdog status for a third comeback. Here, Murphy stars as the title character,...
