>MISERY: ULTIMATE WRITER'S BLOCK

THE PREMISE—A romance novelist held captive by a fan—has potential. But the longer the Rob Reiner—directed film (from a Stephen King story) lasts, the more plot holes gape. Kathy Bates, the obsessed reader, is a good actor in a wrong role; a star name would relieve the escalating silliness—you could think, "How could Cher do this?" James Caan, as the writer, is too helpless. This couple deserves to live tormentedly ever after. (Nelson)
