>HEROIC DOINGS: IRON EAGLE II Lou Gossett Jr. shows that sequels of a feather fly together; this time his jet pilot hero wings off to save the world, not just a man. (IVE)

CONFUSING DOINGS: BIG BUSINESS Bette Midler the big businesswoman and Lily Tomlin the free spirit are supposed to be twins, as are Midler the country bumpkin and Tomlin the union organizer. Don't try to figure this one out; just laugh. (Touchstone)

QUIET DOINGS: A HANDFUL OF DUST It's a tale of a dissipating marriage in '30s London, but the plot is Evelyn Waugh's, and the cast includes former Prince consort Kristin Scott Thomas and Alec Guinness. (RCA/Columbia)

UNDERDONE DOINGS: GOING UNDERCOVER Comparing Chris Lemmon's mannerisms with his dad's is the best part of this lame thriller, with Lemmon as an inept private eye hired to watch over Lea Thompson. (Vidmark)
