"When a Man Loves a Woman" (Touchstone): A housewife (Meg Ryan) with a seemingly ideal marriage is an alcoholic who winds up in rehab. The premise, that her devoted, nice-guy husband (Andy Garcia) is an unwitting "enabler," is hard to swallow. A fair melodrama weighed down by some shameless tear-jerker sequences.
"Beverly Hills Cop III" (Paramount): Eddie Murphy returns as Detroit cop Axel Foley, who's on another investigation in Los Angeles, this time checking out the crooked activities at a theme park called WonderWorld. There's a thrilling shootout at the park but not much comedy, and Murphy is not as spirited as he was in the original.
