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.

Movie critics were not able to see "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III" before it opened in U.S. theaters on Friday, so there were none of the predictably bad reviews until Monday morning. Of course, none of that mattered, since the core audience for the four comic-book, "Yo!"-shouting, karate-kicking turtles is kids. Over the weekend, especially on Saturday, they flocked to theaters and bought a hefty $12.4-million worth of tickets. It was the year's biggest non-holiday opening weekend to date.

These films have been recently released on video: "Double Impact" (Columbia TriStar, $93). One critic snidely noted that martial arts star Jean-Claude Van Damme playing twins gives him twice as many chances to show he can't act. Critical consensus about this box-office hit: too much chatter, not enough action. "Pure Luck" (MCA/Universal, $93). A slapstick-loaded, buddy action comedy about the search for a missing woman, featuring Martin Short and Danny Glover. It was generally ripped by critics.
