Clever storytelling, impressive special effects, and solid performances by a capable cast make this action-adventure movie a standout for tween viewers. Capitalizing on Jett Jackson's popularity as a television series on the Disney Channel (1998-2001), Jett Jackson, The Movie continues the saga of our namesake (Lee Thompson Young). The suburban teen is contending with his celebrity status as the star of an action series called Silverstone, while struggling with his offstage persona as a regular coming-of-age kid. Things get murkier when a bizarre accident activates one of the show's props, a time-space continuum. Hit with an electrical jolt, Jett is thrust into another dimension, trading bodies with his alter ego, Silverstone. There are villains to conquer--namely Dr. Kragg and his sinister plan to raze the world--and hearts to win--primarily, Jett's faithful friend Kayla (Kerry Duff). For Jett it's all in a day's work, even under threat of an expiring contract. Disney delivers a production that's wholesome without being condescending, proving it knows its target audience. Young and Duff are exceptionally good, and the martial arts sequences sizzle. (Ages 10 to 15) --Lynn Gibson

Anglophiles and Britcom aficionados will welcome the video of this delightful 1974 series based on the books by Charlotte Bingham. Happily, the sparkling dialogue and engaging characters wear much better than the actors' horribly dated '70s wardrobes. John Alderton and his real-life wife, Pauline Collins, star as C.D. and Clara, the George Burns and Gracie Allen of Hampstead, right down to the "Say goodnight, Clara" that closes each episode.
This boxed set contains the first seven episodes of the series. Episode 1 sets the stage as C.D. and Clara, who have been married, Clara notes, "nearly 10 years next Thursday a week on Monday," recall how they met at "Freddie's awful party." Framed by the couple's light banter, each of these episodes flashback chronologically to their often comically confused courtship and marriage. Oddly enough, we do not see them joined in (again, Clara's words) "holy deadlock," but instead join C.D. and Clara as they embark on their honeymoon and endeavor to keep their newly married status a secret (why they keep it a secret is a bit unclear) by pretending to be a boring, frustrated long-married couple.
"Life with Clara," C.D. observes at one point, "is not a bowl of cherries, it's a dish of blouse buttons." And in less expert hands, Clara could get tiresome quickly ("I tend to get things rather muddled," she confesses early on), but Pauline Collins (perhaps best known for her signature role as Shirley Valentine) plays her with a mischievous twinkle that make her leaps of illogic endearing. She particularly shines in episode 4, in which she resists C.D.'s efforts to make her dress more fashionably than like "the remnant of a disbanded folk group." --Donald Liebenson

|Dash & Lilly [VHS]
Lowest new price: $10.50
Lowest used price: $19.76
Directed by Oscar wining actor Kathy Bates (Primary Colors, Misery) and starring Oscar nominees Sam Shepard (The Pelican Brief) and Judy Davis (Celebrity), this A&E original Movie is the captivating true story of one of the most tempestuous and remarkable literary romances of our time.
Given what she had to put up with, Lillian Hellman must have been one of the most miserable women around: Communist witch-hunts, battles over finances, and an alcoholic lover who blatantly and casually took mistresses. Yet as she is portrayed by Judy Davis in A&E's Dash and Lilly, directed by Kathy Bates, her life seems immensely romantic. A steely woman with as much ambition as talent, Hellman never bent to the mores of her time, flaunting her sexuality in a manner that seems somewhat brazen even today. While the film purports to be about the love story between two great writers--Dashiell Hammett (Sam Shepard), creator of Sam Spade, and Hellman, a playwright of such hits as The Children's Hour and The Little Foxes--in truth the story is hers.
The framework for the film is Hellman's preparations to testify before the House of Un-American Activities Commission. Beginning with a flashback to Hellman's first come-on to Hammett in the 1930s, their entire love life is portrayed, along the way introducing luminaries of the day, including Dorothy Parker (played with verve by Bebe Neuwirth, although she is decidedly underused). Hammett is frequently offscreen--due to his trysts, his army service, and his jail term--so we follow Hellman, who is the more complex character.
Despite the compelling literary temperaments and romance, the movie suffers from a lack of character development. We are never privy to what exactly draws Hellman and Hammett to each other; we only learn that their dependence is absolute and more than a little misguided. What makes Hellman the tough broad she is we never learn; what goes on in Hammett's head is never unearthed. But the glimpses into their writing processes and the tumultuous ups and downs of life in those uncertain times are fascinating. Shepard gives a stiff performance, although he doesn't have much to work with, but Davis is wonderful, with her unyielding bearing and her realistic portrayal of the unease a woman such as Hellman must have felt; she skillfully treads that fine line between submissive, feminine lover and political, aggressive writer. Overall, Dash and Lilly is a pleasant watch, although it leaves one wishing that it had delved a little deeper into the psyches of the lovers, which would have made it a great watch. --Jenny Brown

They're ugly, stupid, rude, crudely drawn, and absolutely mind-numbing--which has always been the source of Beavis and Butt-head's appeal. Hard Cash collects eight cartoons in which the killer Bs are out for cash (though, unfortunately, none of the Burger World episodes are included). If this were any other cartoon, the plot summary of any of the episodes here would be: Beavis and Butt-head get jobs, hilarity ensues as they try to fit in. The, er, genius of B&B is that hilarity never actually ensues--in fact, not much of anything ensues. There's a bunch of butt jokes, a lot of semipubescent giggling, and the rampant mundaneness of everyday existence in a dead-end life, which is why the series was one of the best send-ups of television this side of Chris Elliott's Get a Life. Collected here, they tend not to work as well, though; without the--dare we even think it?--ambition that held Beavis and Butt-Head Do America together, a themed collection of episodes lacks any real cohesiveness. It is always nice to see MC 900 Ft Jesus' video for "If I Only Had a Brain" make an appearance, however, and B&B's transfixion by the song's infinitely catchy hook is one of their finest moments. --Randy Silver
