Voyeurism has long proved a fitting topic for the movies, most memorably in Alfred Hitchcock's "Rear Window" and Michael Powell's "Peeping Tom." "Alone With Her," a new twist on that theme, utilizes the latest technology to tell its tale. Immediately, the audience is thrust into the point of view of a video camera (lodged in a duffle bag), carried around to film attractive young women.

"Orange County" starts out deliriously funny but allows sentimentality to squeeze it to a pulp by the time it's over. It's the old Hollywood sellout, yet surely the people who laugh during its first half are prepared to go the distance with its deadpan take on the obtuse absurdities of human nature and upscale suburban life--especially one with such winning central performances by Colin Hanks and Schuyler Fisk.

"Hey, baby, it's your long lost-lover calling." Yeah, if only. Steven Tyler was quite excited when he called the other day, but then the rock star had good reason. Aerosmith just got four Grammy nominations (including best rock song, best rock album, best duo or group rock performance) for its album "Just Push Play" as well as one music video nomination.

FIVE YEARS AGO, this column would have been packed with David Hasselhoff jokes. But I got to know the man, and watching a nice guy fall apart isn't as funny to me as it is to the rest of you. So this column will only have an average amount of David Hasselhoff jokes.

"Fargo" is coming back as a TV series. But viewers shouldn't confuse the FX series with the Oscar-winning 1996 film from Ethan and Joel Coen. The new series will be a limited drama series inspired by the film that will feature an all-new true crime story with new characters established in the trademark humor, dialect, murder and "Minnesota nice" of the original film. The 10-part series will premiere April 15. The character of Marge Gunderson, the pregnant law enforcement officer played by Frances McDormand in an Oscar-winning performance, will not be a part of the new series.  TRAILERS: Winter TV 2014 Key to the new "Fargo" will be the feel of the Minnesota region, where people "have an inability to communicate," said Noah Hawley, executive producer and writer of all the episodes.

Moviegoers weary of pre-Oscar seriousness escaped to "Orange County" over the weekend, but the teen comedy couldn't quite match the struggles of a hobbit and a mathematician at the box office. "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" was in first place for the fourth weekend in a row, grossing $16.2 million and pushing its total take to $228.3 million, according to studio estimates Sunday.

"Get Over It" is a blithe-spirited comedy in which teenagers discover their romantic vicissitudes mirrored in their high school production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." It's being directed by their nasty drama teacher (Martin Short, hilarious), who has written 12 original songs for the production. "Bill Shakespeare was a wonderful poet, but Burt Bacharach he was not!" declares Short's Dr. Desmond Forrest Oakes, as grandiose as his name.

Just four years out of college, a group of friends gets back together for a "Big Chill"-style reunion weekend when two among the ranks tie the knot. Directed by Matthew Cole Weiss from a script by Matthew Perniciaro and Timm Sharp, "Standing Still" wants to be an honest, earnest look at the difficulties of growing up and moving on, but it remains stuck in such a fantasy-laden milieu that the characters never feel particularly real, and their problems seem phony and arbitrary.

THERE'S A rich irony in the fact that James Caan is being feted this month with the CineVegas Film Festival's inaugural Vegas Icon Award: Caan hates almost all the acting he's ever done that has anything to do with the city. The four years he spent as fictional head of casino security Big Ed Deline on the defunct NBC show "Las Vegas"? He was lowered to doing the TV role by a film drought. "It's sort of the difference between wanting to work and having to work," Caan says.
