Picks and Pans Review: Running
Somehow, moviemakers hadn't caught up with the roadwork craze until this inexpensive ($2 million) Canadian production. Filmed on New York location, Running stars Michael Douglas as a charming failure, whose career and family life have hit "the wall." If the plot, a sort of "Rocky Goes to the Olympics," is as predictable as blisters from new running shoes, no enthusiast is likely to care. Douglas, his estranged wife (Susan Anspach) and kids are so gently appealing they carry the script over some rugged terrain. At the finish line, the film is puffing but still has heart. (PG)
