>Drowning Mona All wet. This comedy falls flat despite the busy efforts of Bette Midler and Danny DeVito. (PG-13)

Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai A hit man (Forest Whitaker) lives by an ancient Japanese code of honor. Quirky comedy-drama by cult director Jim Jarmusch grows on you. (R)

Hanging Up Bad connection. Meg Ryan, Diane Keaton and Lisa Kudrow play quarreling sisters. Goes for cute over real. (PG-13)

My Dog Skip A boy (Frankie Muniz of Malcolm in the Middle) learns about loyalty from his dog in a family film that is as cuddly as a puppy. (PG)

The Next Best Thing Misconceived weepie about a straight woman (Madonna) and a gay man (Rupert Everett) having a child. The Material Girl needs better material. (PG-13)

3 Strikes Small, scruffy comedy about a parolee (Brian Hooks) wrongly fingered in a police shoot-out. David Alan Grier earns a few laughs as a detective who likes doughnuts. (R)

Wonder Boys Our current fave for grown-ups. Michael Douglas excels as an English professor mired in a middle-age slump. (R)
