The new TNT film "Thicker Than Blood" is a bit of a posthumous reunion for the crowd from "Nothing Sacred," ABC's recently deceased series about an unconventional Catholic priest. "Nothing Sacred" co-creator Bill Cain adapted "Thicker Than Blood" from his play, "Stand Up Tragedy." Richard Manson, executive producer for the series, carries the same credit on the film, which is directed by Richard Pearce, who also guided the controversial "Nothing Sacred" pilot.

Noel Coward has been sighted yet again. In "Private Life," at the Hudson Guild Theatre, Craig Archibald is a suave, troubled Coward woozily waking up at New York's Plaza Hotel while on tour to promote his new autobiography. The production at the Hudson follows the recently closed "A Private Spirit . . . A Celebration of the Music and Wit of Noel Coward," in which Don Snell played Coward at the Tiffany. Where Snell inspired ennui, Archibald projects it.

Wife beaters with large bank accounts are above the law. Abused wives, especially those who used to work for tips, are toast. The only recourse for these women is to change their identity, muscle up and kill the bum. This is not the only simplistic notion that drives "Enough," the preposterous new Jennifer Lopez rabble-rouser. It is merely the most reckless, particularly at a time when more abused women are giving up on The System and polishing their aim at rifle ranges.

"Shooting Fish," not as inspired or amusing as it might be, leans heavily on the considerable charm of its three young and attractive principals. Their charisma and the film's larky spirit, English locales and elaborate cons might be just enough to divert easily satisfied date-night audiences. Even so, "Shooting Fish" is an awful lot like lots of other pictures with an overly complicated and improbable plot that you try to follow at your peril.

IT wasn't easy to film in Pakistan, to re-create the real life and death of an American journalist at the hands of terrorists, to capture the grief and steely resolve of the widow left behind. The paparazzi didn't help either. With Angelina Jolie as its star, the production of "A Mighty Heart" made headlines of its own as it was filming, mostly about alleged incidents between photographers and the actress' security team.
