"K-11" has the makings of a cult movie campfest but little of the authentic wit, edge or outré vision it would take to get there. What's left is a dreary jailhouse drama that somehow managed to imprison a few notable actors within its lurid walls. The convoluted script by director Jules Stewart (Kristen's mom) and Jared Kurt involves Raymond Saxx Jr. (Goran Visnjic of "E.R. "), a drug-fueled music mogul and murder suspect hauled into Los Angeles County Men's Central Jail. Thanks to a corrupt - and weirdly hapless - sheriff's deputy, Lt. Johnson (D.B.

Filmed in America and made in English, the film "The Last Godfather" features Korean star-director-writer Shim Hyung-rae as the love-child orphan of a 1950s Mafia don called to the States to take over the family business. After one quick joke that the 50-something Shim looks a bit old, the film moves into letting him just do what one might expect from a man-child character based around his high-water, high-waisted pants, bumbling antics and odd predilection for gags involving his shoes.

Television should be about diversity. And here are its two takes on New Jersey: HBO's "The Sopranos" and the working-class butt-heads of ABC's "Clerks." The latter is a free-wheeling and sometimes clever--but miles over the top--animated version of Kevin Smith's tiny 1994 feature of the same name that became a profitable cult sensation. Smith, Brian Halloran, Jeff Anderson and Jason Mewes voice the roles they played in the film.

Kevin Smith's "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back" is not the kind of film that one would imagine growing out of his third feature, the scintillating 1997 romantic comedy "Chasing Amy," which starred Ben Affleck and Jason Lee as partners in the creation of a cult-hit comic book, "Bluntman and Chronic."
