Some actors steal scenes. Tom Green just gives them a bad odor. This self-infatuated goofball is far from the only thing wrong with the clumsy comedy "Stealing Harvard," but he's the most obvious one. When he appears on screen, it's like some skin-...
By all appearances, the broadcast television networks finally got the message that audiences are hungry for original programming even during summer months. What's more, they've learned to do it with relatively inexpensive programming. Just look at the...
1. "Sunset Boulevard" (Billy Wilder; 1950) 4 stars Both a noir classic and one of the great backstage Hollywood movies, Wilder's corrosive romance -- with Gloria Swanson's bewitching diva turn as fading silent star Norma Desmond at its center --...
1. LOVE STREAMS (John Cassavetes; 1984) 4 stars A Hollywood writer who cannot love confronts his sister, who loves too well. Writer-director-star Cassavetes' last major work, starring himself and wife Gena Rowlands, it's another blisteringly emotional,...

One of the major attractions of Edward Burns' "Sidewalks of New York" is the way it brings back the old pre-Sept. 11 Manhattan N.Y.C. -- and with its old hard-shell flippancy and attitude -- back to cinematic life. Making his fourth -- and by far best --...

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...
Courant TV CriticHospitals, morgues, courtrooms and nostalgia - that's where you'll again find most of the action in the new television season. Cops and hospitals. Hospitals and cops. It's a topical cul-de-sac on TV, where the highest-rated shows in recent...
Times Staff Writer"Stealing Harvard" is an act of grand theft--the way it wastes your time is a crime. It's so bad that you have to wonder whether Tom Green was looking for a project to match last year's "Freddy Got Fingered," which he directed and which ended up on many...
