>Cast Away Tom Hanks is stuck alone on an uninhabited Pacific island after a plane crash. Hanks is such a terrific actor, it's a pleasure watching him invent fire, forage for food and yak to a volleyball, his only companion. (PG-13)

Miss Congeniality This comedy-drama starring Sandra Bullock as an FBI agent who goes undercover at a beauty pageant is a guilty pleasure. It's no masterpiece, but it sure made us laugh a lot. Benjamin Bratt costars. (PG-13)

What Women Want Mel Gibson plays a skirt-chasing ad exec who can read women's minds, including new boss Helen Hunt's. Never quite as funny as it tries to be. (PG-13)
