For once, we never tire of seeing a guy in the same old shirt. That would be the chamois shirt covering (but not covering up) Kevin Sorbo's 43-inch chest. That would also be the shirt that commanded $1,000 at a charity auction in January during the first Official "Xena" and 'Hercules" Convention. The shirt's a lightweight compared to the rest of the outfit worn by Sorbo, 38, who stars on "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys."

Romance and humor are famous homebodies; they never travel as much as they should. Shot mainly in Los Angeles' Koreatown, the genre elements of the romantic comedy "Wedding Palace" attempt a transpacific transit, but get lost in translation.

So I called the 213 number and left a message that would become my link to the (cue up weird music) Travel Twilight Zone. After a series of traded messages, Jason, in a very South Bay, white guy manner, offers me a choice of airlines and itineraries, the price still $300. Agreed.

Two of your worst nightmares may be merging in the same movie. According to New Line Cinema pres Robert Shaye, there's a possibility that Jason, the hockey-masked killer of "Friday the 13th Part VI," may do battle with Freddy Krueger, the demented/deformed star of New Line's two "Nightmare on Elm Street" pics. "We've talked," said Shaye, "but Paramount's already done five sequels with Jason. We've got to make Freddy a little tougher before he battles Jason.
