Sam Shepard's cryptic abstracts are, in a sense, blank slates upon which a talented company can inscribe its own distinctive mark. Shepard's work is reminiscent of Harold Pinter's, a sort of gothic postmodernism simmering with anomie and dread. Given a surface rendering, plays of this ilk can be dull in the extreme. With a little thematic exploration and a lot more insight, however, they can be riveting.

Smart and stylish, "Disney's Teacher's Pet" is one family film that has appeal for adults as well as children.

It opens with a clip of "Pinocchio," in which the Blue Fairy is singing "When You Wish Upon a Star."

"The Return of Jafar" is a straight-to-video sequel to Disney's "Aladdin," and the results are about what you'd expect--not nearly up to the studio's big-screen standards but better than most kiddie TV animation. An almost entirely new group of producers, directors, writers, animators and composers worked on the sequel, but it's not slovenly--just repetitive and uninspired. The score, in particular, is an unhummable melange of pseudo-tunes.

Gov. George E. Pataki plans to veto legislation that would allow women to buy the "morning-after" pill without a prescription, a decision described by abortion rights advocates as "sheer political expediency" to build conservative support for a 2008 presidential run.
