>THERESA RUSSELL Effective in husband Nicolas (Eureka) Roeg's films as well as such extramarital affairs as Black Widow, Russell flounders as an ambitious lawyer in Physical Evidence. That's the sound of bone-cracking cringes you hear in the audience when she gets tough with Burt Reynolds.

TOM SELLECK Sappy and cloying, Selleck bumbles through Her Alibi; not even co-star Paulina Porizkova seems amused.

ERIC STOLTZ The role of leading insect in The Fly II might have made sense for a newcomer. Remember Brett Halsey in 1959's The Return of the Fly? Anyway, Stoltz, who proved he could emote under layers of latex in the far better Mask, is wasting his time.
