* The film and television actor stars in the NBC series "Scrubs." Friday Night Fever: Friday I would go pick up my son Max, 4, and we'd have a sleepover. That would mean going to Coogie's Beach Cafe in Malibu. Then we'd come home, where I have the garage set up like a big playroom with mirrored walls. For kids with Down syndrome, there's a thing called hippotherapy, where riding horses helps them build up their strength.

The vistas of the Santa Monica Mountains and Pacific Ocean pour into the wall-length windows of John C. McGinley's Malibu home. Taking in the beauty of this perfect July afternoon, one wonders why he spends time holed up in a dark, sparsely decorated basement. Yet it is there, in his "rehearsal room," where the actor pores over scripts to give life to the mercurial Dr.

In the hands of director John Badham, "The Jack Bull" is a moral drama in genre drag, with an impressive physical sweep. A Canadian mountain vista, standing in for a swath of the American frontier, is referred to as "a church without a roof," and it lives up to the description.

Tom Flynn's scintillating yet serious 1993 romantic comedy stars Peter Gallagher (right) as a young Texan visiting his cousin (Jon Tenney) in a Chicago suburban home. Tenney and his two roommates (John C. McGinley and Tom Sizemore) are all dedicated--and potentiallynasty--pranksters. Flynn comments on the all-American tendency of men to grow older without growing up as Gallagher, meanwhile, finds his cousin's girlfriend (a radiant Suzy Amis, left), propelled into his own arms.'

"Car 54, Where Are You?" (general release), based on the popular Joe E. Ross and Fred Gwynne TV series of the '60s, bombs on the big screen in the '90s. Thanks to a relentlessly terrible script by many hands, it's a dumb movie about dumb cops that should have remained on the shelf, where it's been sitting for over two years. Gravel-voiced David Johansen stars as Gunther Toody, not exactly Brooklyn's finest, who gets a new partner in John C.

"Scrubs" begins its second year of residency on NBC tonight at 8:30 facing a critical test: Can it live up to the expectations that come with its new time slot, after ratings heavyweight "Friends," which won its first Emmy for best comedy series on Sunday? Only time will tell. Interestingly enough, that wait-and-see sentiment is also one of the themes with which the young doctors of Sacred Heart Hospital must grapple tonight. For J.D.

John Candy has one truly funny moment in "Wagons East!," the Western comedy that had nearly finished shooting when he died suddenly early this year. As the reluctant wagonmaster James Harlow, he turns back to the barful of eager-for-exodus townsfolk who're counting on him and proclaims, "We leave at dawn." The cloud of a second thought passes over his face, then a shrug: ". . . Noonish," he wavers.

If the phrase "coffee is for closers" means anything to you, then you'll be interested to learn that the cast of the latest Broadway revival of David Mamet's exploration of the cutthroat world of business, "Glengarry Glen Ross," is rounding into form. Staged in honor of the play's 30th anniversary, the production will be led by Al Pacino, who appeared in a 1992 movie adaptation as hot shot salesman Ricky Roma. This time out he'll shift to the washed-out salesman Shelley Levene. Another Broadway veteran, Bobby Cannavale, hasĀ  been announced as portraying Roma.

"Alex Cross," the new action thriller starring Tyler Perry not in drag, makes one thing perfectly clear - no one had better cross Cross. Sure he may be a respected homicide detective and a psychologist to boot, which can make for one cool customer. But he also has a really bad temper, really big guns and really bad dialogue. He will use all of them excessively if pushed. And pushed he is in this out-of-control roller coaster ride through the very tiny world of Detroit's 1%, a group that has become the target of a serial sniper just as it was about to turn Motor City into a modern high-rise mecca.
