>Bossa Nova Delectable if lightweight romantic farce about an American widow (Amy Irving) in Rio de Janeiro and her various friends and would-be lovers. Directed by Irving's Brazilian-born husband, Bruno Barreto. (R)

Frequency An affecting time-travel drama in which a long-dead father (Dennis Quaid) and his now-grown son (Jim Caviezel) communicate across three decades via a ham radio. Works better than expected. (PG-13)

Keeping the Faith Pleasant but slack romantic comedy about best buddies, a priest (Edward Norton) and a rabbi (Ben Stiller), who fall in love with the same woman (Jenna Elfman).(PG-13)

28 Days Here's looking at you, Sandra Bullock. Sharp, often funny take on going through rehab. (PG-13)

U-571 See-worthy submarine drama set during World War II boasts exciting action scenes but not much in the way of characters. Stars Matthew McConaughey and Harvey Keitel. (PG-13)

Where the Money Is Minor caper film worth seeing for Paul Newman. (PG-13)
