The Scene: Beautiful downtown Burbank premiere of Fine Line Features' "Brady Bunch"-generation Angst film, "Bodies, Rest and Motion," at AMC Burbank 14 Thursday night. The party afterward was held at the low-budget furniture store Ikea, a subtlety lost on anyone over 30. * Who Was There: With the film being on the low-budget side, the event doubled as a cast-and-crew screening.

Charlie Lang (Nicolas Cage) is a New York cop with an overdose of decency. He's sweet and affable and he believes in keeping his word--he's like Forrest Gump with an elevated IQ. When Charlie finds himself in a diner short of a tip, he makes a pie-in-the-sky promise to his waitress (Bridget Fonda) to give her half of any possible winnings on his just-purchased lottery ticket.

Offbeat director John Waters ("Polyester," "Hairspray") might seem an unlikely candidate to write/direct a film in the ever-predictable "Female Psychos From Hell Who Kill" genre. Imagine if Waters--the man who made Patty Hearst a movie star in "Cry-Baby"--had been the director of "Single White Female." Instead of a Bridget Fonda/Jennifer Jason Leigh pairing, Waters' sensibility might have leaned to a Lola Falana/Joey Heatherton combo.

Lots of songwriters have told us how they pour their hearts into songs--almost as if writing letters to old lovers. Chris Isaak has taken a more direct route. In what is believed to be a pop first, Isaak pours his heart out in a letter to his ex-love and actually includes it prominently in the artwork for his upcoming "Forever Blue" album. Marketing ploy or act of compulsion? Isaak swears it's the latter.

David Paymer is amused at references to him as a "veteran" actor. Though at 43 he's had a steady career of 20 years, not long ago he was viewed as a newcomer when he emerged with his Oscar-nominated supporting role as Billy Crystal's brother in 1992's "Mr. Saturday Night," and in the 1994 film "Quiz Show." Now he's expanded his range, playing a bad guy alongside Mel Gibson in "Payback." DON'T I KNOW YOU? "People don't always recognize me. They stop me and think we went to summer camp together.
