Review [Cutting] This movie's "Flashdance" on blades, an unending series of rock videos posing as a story. It's so slick, so loveless, so efficient, you almost take your hat off to the filmmakers...The screen marketing of character opposites graduates into the Great Zone of Montages. You've seen these training sequences before in the "Rocky" and "Karate Kid" movies. Music plays. The months go by. Our heroes pump, punch, lunge or twist in the air, as a kindly coach-cum-sensei looks on...Of course, it isn't Sweeney and Kelly performing those twists and turns. You see them angle for a fancy move, then, at a strategic moment, the movie cuts to real figure skaters performing the maneuver. Then, it cuts back to the actors landing...On this nuts-and-bolts level, "Cutting Edge" does a commendable job. The visual sleight of hand is skillfully executed. So is everything else. The movie whizzes along, without giving you time to consider anything. It's all slick-smooth transition, an interplaying of two impending realities -- the competition and the growing love between Sweeney and Kelly. There are intervening diversions and hurdles. There's Kelly's equally snotty, preppy boyfriend, Dwier Brown, who doesn't think much of her ice partner. Also, Sweeney has to tell his machismo, hometown buddies that he's doing a little, uh, figure skating these days.

Review [Heartbreakers] Director David Mirkin (Romy and Michele's Wedding) has an off-kilter sense of humor, evinced in his producing, writing, and directing credits on TV series like The Simpsons, Get a Life, and The Larry Sanders Show. It's a resume appropriate for his latest theatrical effort, Heartbreakers, a con-artist comedy chronicling the skilled scams engineered by an alluring mother-and-daughter duo. But in watching this amusing effort unfold, rather than the zingy, catch-the-jokes-if-you-can alertness of The Simpsons, the dependable timing of Mirkin's other notable high-profile TV project, Newhart, comes to mind. As stand-up and tube vet Bob slowly delivered dry punch lines with perfect but subdued precision, so the cast of Heartbreakers adeptly deliver their ongoing retorts -- keeping the laughs coming at a steady pace despite a slow-moving and overlong story...Heartbreakers isn't the kind of movie in which everything needs to -- or should -- be realistic; the unlikely events keep the story moving along. But this is also a film "with heart" and the Jack/Page romance is the pivotal plot development, sparking the selfish siren's emotional turnaround.

Review [Legally] It's probably safe to say that Legally Blonde is the best '80s movie of the new century. It's a throwback to a time when class issues and revolutions were played out by nerds and jocks on conjured college campuses, where microcosms were all there was and the outside world was like a dream kept at bay by ivy-clad brick walls...Helmed by newcomer Robert Luketic, the film was based on a semi-autobiographical novel by writer Amanda Brown, who enrolled in law school as a fish-out-of-bottled-mineral-water. The book was converted into a script by the writing team responsible for 10 Things I Hate About You, another snappy and smart comedy that recalls the bygone era of (my) youth...The film is certainly not flawless -- Luketic hasn't developed his own style yet, and whatever directorial flourishes there are seem Hollywood-glossy. The director of photography is Anthony Richmond, an old-timer whose previous credits include Don't Look Now and Let It Be (my, how the mighty have fallen -- and fallen into cushiony piles of studio money). Richmond's talents are underused, but he sure makes Witherspoon's hair look purty.
