Action thrillers are fun when filmmakers teeter at the edge of implausibility -- without slipping over it. If "Collateral" is an excellent example of how to go right up to the brink with finesse, "Cellular" illustrates what happens when a viable premise is spoiled by sheer preposterousness. The movie strains to divert audiences but short-changes them instead. Written by Chris Morgan from a story by shrewd veteran Larry Cohen and directed by David R.

A former Moorpark school board member and councilman received three years' probation Wednesday in a grand-theft case involving his ex-employer. Chris Evans, 46, pleaded no contest in August and agreed to repay more than $52,000 to settle the matter. That same day he resigned his seat on the Moorpark Unified School District board. Evans later was given 120 days by Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Jessica Silvers to make full restitution.

A former Moorpark school board member who came up short in his restitution efforts in a grand theft case was given a two-month delay Monday. Chris Evans, who also once served on the City Council, still owes $11,000 of the final $48,000 he agreed to repay a former employer, so a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge gave him until Feb. 23 to complete payments.

CHRIS EVANS DEPUTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY, 35 The aging twin-engine Convair went into a sharp dive, and Orange County Deputy Dist. Atty. Chris Evans felt his stomach climb into his throat. A few minutes later the passengers were clapping. They had landed safely on the small airstrip of Isla Natividad. There isn't much on the dun-colored island except some of the finest surf in Baja California. That was all Evans and his friends needed. Never mind the Spartan accommodations.

Chris Evans is more than a teacher to her students, whose ranks include the hard-core unemployed, welfare recipients and laid-off workers. They call her "Mama Chris" out of love and respect. They snap to attention every morning when the soft-spoken, bespectacled woman with the quick smile rings a tiny bell and starts to lecture them on how to get a job and keep it. She stresses the importance of being well-groomed, well-behaved, punctual and courteous.
