One minute Hallie Kate Eisenberg is acting like a typical kid, hanging upside-down from a luggage cart at a Santa Monica hotel as she poses for a photographer. And the next minute, the 8-year-old actress is discussing a script she is writing about three generations of one family. "I am not writing it for myself," the diminutive Hallie says matter-of-factly. "She's learning French," pipes in her mom, Amy. "So she's doing [the script] also in French.

Hollywood can make the audience believe that there are people in outer space, and that you can travel in time and part the Red Sea. They create special effects and monsters to rival anyone's imagination but they cannot use a real blind, deaf (or both) person to play in another production of "The Miracle Worker" ("Body Language," by Susan King, Nov. 12). As adorable as Hallie Kate Eisenberg is, there is a lot more to being blind and deaf than learning Braille, giving blank stares and focusing on one's forehead when speaking and grunting toward another person.

Minnie Driver easily lives up to the title of the new film "Beautiful," in which she stars so impressively under Sally Field's aptly nuanced direction. Yet Driver's angular features are just distinctive enough to make it credible that her small-town Illinois beauty contestant might find it a struggle to come out a winner. Written perceptively by Jon Bernstein, "Beautiful" is not yet another easy satire on a target that is by now overly familiar.

Ah, the '70s. Remember? When an impecunious off-Broadway actor could support a bipolar former dancer and her 10-year-old daughter in a two-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side? At least, he could in Neil Simon's 1977 film "The Goodbye Girl," which starred Marsha Mason (then Simon's wife), Richard Dreyfuss and Quinn Cummings as a pair of reluctant roommates and the sophisticated tot who suffers patiently through their hysterical conversion from hatred to love.

If your stomach doesn't churn a bit after hearing the title of the children's movie "How to Eat Fried Worms," the picture itself may finish the job. Indeed, we watch the film's main character, 11-year-old Billy Forrester (Luke Benward), devour worm after worm -- fried, grilled, juiced or raw. In this movie, the barf scenes standard in the usual crude youth comedies aren't gratuitous. They're logical climaxes.
