>Almost Famous Almost perfect. Compassionate coming-of-age story about a 15-year-old rock journalist who learns about life and love while on the road covering a band. Great performances by Frances McDormand, Billy Crudup, newcomer Patrick Fugit and especially Kate Hudson. (R)

Bring It On A cheerful comedy about cheerleaders, starring a spirited Kirsten Dunst. (PG-13)

Highlander: Endgame Make it stop. The fourth Highlander again stars dour Christopher Lambert as a sword-swinging Scot cursed with immortality. He's joined by Highlander TV star Adrian Paul, who's cute in a kilt. (R)

Nurse Betty Wild and wacky and unlike any other movie out there, which is a compliment. Renée Zellweger is superb as a waitress who is convinced that she's a character on a soap opera. Morgan Freeman and Chris Rock play hit men on her trail. (R)

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

The Tao of Steve A smooth-talking fat guy (Donal Logue) doesn't let his bulk interfere with picking up women in a swell romantic comedy. (R)

The Way of the Gun Hard-boiled, twisting tale of thugs (Ryan Phillippe and Benicio Del Toro) who kidnap a pregnant woman. (R)
