"The Mighty" is based on a book called "Freak the Mighty," and that small but telling change is as good an indication as any of how the forces of conventionality have hamstrung what is in many ways a quirky and imaginative piece of work. Directed by Peter Chelsom, whose previous credits are "Hear My Song" and the fiercely eccentric "Funny Bones," "The Mighty" seems at war with itself.

San Diego has compiled a dismal record in three major sports. They have not won a championship since 1963, if you count the Chargers' American Football League title. The Padres have never won a title in their 39 years, and neither did the Clippers during their six-year stay. Between the three teams that is 88 seasons without a title.

When Oliver Stone's "The Doors" wraps late this month, Val Kilmer may not be turning in the black leather pants he wears as lead singer Jim Morrison. The reason: Kilmer and the rest of the "group" may reprise their roles--as supporting characters--if "Wild Child" (formerly "Wonderland Avenue") begins filming this summer. That's the word from a source close to "Wild Child," which details a young man's coming-of-age in the frenzied rock world.
