IF anyone understands the treacherous power of the pinup, it's Gretchen Mol. In 1998, the young actress graced the cover of Vanity Fair, wearing only a see-through slip and a very dangerous headline: "Is She Hollywood's Next It Girl?" When the films that had prompted Vanity Fair's cover choice -- "Rounders" and Woody Allen's "Celebrity" -- fizzled, no one banged on then-Editor Graydon Carter's door demanding a retraction, but Mol has lived with the "It Girl" legacy for years.

If you want to stretch as an artist, it'll probably be easier if you have never achieved fame in a long-running sitcom. Jason Alexander may have been feeling this burden fromthe time he set out to direct "Just Looking."

Fox's new "Girls Club" is about three young attorneys who are beautiful when they're angry. Which is often. Lynne Camden (Gretchen Mol) is mad because senior partner William Hahn (Giancarlo Esposito) is on her case. Sarah Mickle (Chyler Leigh) is mad because another partner, Meredith Holt (Lisa Banes) -- nicknamed "Praying Mantis" -- is on her case. Jeannie Falls (Kathleen Robertson) is mad because partner Spencer Lewis (Brian Markinson) is repeatedly on her neck and shoulders. With his hands.

David Wain, director of "Wet Hot American Summer," creator of the sketch comedy series "The State" and founding member of the improv troupe Stella, brings his popular brand of surrealist yet mundane humor to the big screen with more or less dreadful results. A collection of short films based on the Ten Commandments, "The Ten" is presented by Paul Rudd as a narrator character who lives in a black void with a pair of gigantic stone tablets lurking in the background.
