Since playing her first movie role in a 1992 straight-to-video independent film whose title she either can't remember or refuses to divulge, comedian Janeane Garofalo has had a busy movie career: some 22 films over the past decade, including "The Truth About Cats & Dogs," "Steal This Movie" and "The Cable Guy." But making movies is one thing, she said. Doing stand-up is another.

There is, no doubt, a women's studies dissertation to be written on the recent co-optation of intuition by male crime-fighters on television. Once dismissed as a woman's poor substitute for fact-based logic, intuition has become the latest super-power. House has it, as does "The Mentalist's" Patrick Jane. "Lie to Me's" Cal Lightman is a doctor of it, Richard Castle wields the novelist's version, and on "Criminal Minds," the FBI has assembled a whole team of Miss Marples who may throw around psychological tendencies and criminal profiles but spend most of their time looking at crime scenes and wondering, "what was he thinking?"

Two things are quickly apparent in Michael Lehmann's "The Truth About Cats & Dogs." Nothing about the story, in which a popular radio personality falls in love with a man who thinks she is someone else, is going to be believable. And Janeane Garofalo, who plays that personality, is so much fun, you aren't going to care. Garofalo, the pesky talent booker on HBO's hip "The Larry Sanders Show," is whom Richard Benjamin might wish he'd had when he was shooting "Mrs.

Janeane Garofalo's patience has paid off. Four years ago, the bold and brainy stand-up comic auditioned for Lorne Michaels, executive producer of "Saturday Night Live," with a half-hour set at a New York comedy club. Michaels was impressed enough to offer Garofalo a writing job on the show, but she turned it down, preferring to craft her comedy onstage rather than behind the scenes. Now, Michaels is finally ready to welcome Garofalo's brusque charms and barbed point-of-view to the "SNL" set.

He's the crew-cut, workaholic ex-punk rocker of Black Flag fame who pumps iron, writes books, performs for troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, hosts his own Independent Film Channel talk show and deejays once a week for L.A. FM station Indie 103.1. She's a self-described slacker homebody obsessed with beadwork and practiced in the art of self-deprecation who five years ago caught flack for taking a hiatus from her acerbic comedy stylings to become an outspoken antiwar activist.
