>THE TRUMAN SHOW Jim Carrey gets serious in a canny satire about a guy whose entire life, unbeknownst to him, is one big TV show. Funny and fascinating, but we're still not giving up our MTV.

THE OPPOSITE OF SEX Lolita is a mere guppy compared with the promiscuous teenage piranha played by Christina Ricci in a hilarious black comedy. Friends' Lisa Kudrow also stars and is terrific.

MULAN She's smart, tough and ever so animated. Mulan, Disney's cross-dressing warrior heroine, will have kids of both sexes cheering as she saves China.
