MOVIES In "The Big Hit," Mark Wahlberg (right, with China Chow) plays a hired killer in a misfired kidnap plot who's made vulnerable by his need to be liked by everybody. This latest U.S. production by Hong Kong action master John Woo opens Friday in general release. Lou Diamond Phillips co-stars. MOVIES Gwyneth Paltrow's destiny is determined by whether or not she makes it aboard an about-to-depart London subway train in "Sliding Doors." Writer-director Peter Howitt tells it both ways.

Even though the festivities began at what many attendees think of as nap time, this event was geared toward guests under four feet tall--the Los Angeles premiere of Disney's latest animated epic, "Pocahontas," at El Capitan theater in Hollywood on Sunday, followed by a party in the parking lot behind the theater. The event benefited California Institute for the Arts, which appeared to be well-deserving of the attention as more than 30 of the people who worked on the film are Cal Arts graduates.
"Muppet Treasure Island" is a wonderful picture for children, a work of considerable artistry and craftsmanship that ought to please many adults as well, provided they're prepared to go along with a highly familiar, very simple story. It mixes Muppets--400, no less--and humans with ease, and Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil have come up with a clutch of pleasant songs.

"The Aristocrats," Paul Provenza and Penn Jillette's documentary about what has been described as the world's dirtiest joke, is a kind of glimpse into the locker rooms of comedians, and a locker room may be entertaining, but it is not a place for small children or the genteel.

TORONTO -- Grabbing a smoke on the patio of downtown Toronto restaurant Terroni at the “Argo” party the other night, we were talking to actor Scoot McNairy about downtown L.A. French dip institution Cole's and the lost art of the three-martini lunch. McNairy introduced his friend, Jake, who told us he was in town to see the premiere of his dad's new movie, his first as a director. With the Toronto Film Festival's lineup of 289 feature films and 83 shorts, we smiled and nodded and thought it was nice that Jake's dad's debut movie found a home among the crowded lineup.
