>Autumn in New York Richard Gere and Winona Ryder star in a lame tear-jerker about an aging rake who falls for a sickly gal. If you want to cry, rent Love Story. (PG-13)

Cecil B. Demented In John Waters's comedy, guerrilla filmmakers fed up with bad Hollywood movies kidnap a big star (Melanie Griffith) and put her in their picture. Minor laughs, but too smug. (R)

Godzilla 2000 The old-style Godzilla, wide-hipped and rubbery, is back and saving Tokyo from destruction. Cheap, silly and badly dubbed. (PG)

Hollow Man Empty-headed. A scientist (Kevin Bacon) turns himself invisible and unleashes the killer within. (R)

The Original Kings of Comedy Laughter reigns as stand-up comics Steve Harvey, D.L. Hughley, Cedric the Entertainer and Bernie Mac let loose in a concert film directed by Spike Lee. (R)

The Replacements Formulaic football comedy stars Keanu Reeves, who's easy on the eyes. Period. (PG-13)

Saving Grace Mellow British comedy about a widow (Brenda Blethyn) who grows marijuana to pay off her debts. (R)

Space Cowboys A blast. Geezer astronauts Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, James Garner and Donald Sutherland demonstrate that age has nothing to do with gravity. (PG-13)
