In a cozy, covert U.S. government research facility, bearded refuseniks drink tea and contemplate their screen-savers. Suddenly a gunman enters and systematically slaughters the staff--all except one, who throws the assassin a curve by hiding his tea setting in a sideboard. "Three Days of the Condor"? No, and it's not quite Robert Redford either.

Can a respected journalist learn what it takes to get any man in the room? That's one of the key questions driving tonight's "Sex & Mrs. X," a modestly intriguing Lifetime character study that passes muster on the strength of good performances by Linda Hamilton and Jacqueline Bisset. Hamilton, who can be tough ("The Terminator") and tender ("Beauty and the Beast"), embodies both qualities as Joanna Scott, a veteran reporter with a shaky marriage. How shaky?

What Stewart fails to recognize is that classroom discussion of personal sexual activities is highly inappropriate--whether the teacher is male or female, married or unmarried, homosexual or heterosexual--and would be so even if the class were sex education.

It may not have much underneath--the script approaches the kind of lean, existentialist, B-movie parable that Walter Hill tried in "The Driver"--but it moves like a cold rocket. The movie is about a thief (Tommy Lee Jones) hired by the Justice Department to steal incriminating tapes from an indicted corporation.

It's never easy to create a fictional narrative that fits the specific purpose of promoting a good cause, and for all the usual good intentions, writer-director Jeffrey Kramer with "Smile" has made a plodding, drawn-out, overly long and contrived film in behalf of Operation Smile, which since 1982 has provided free reconstructive surgery for more than 80,000 children and young adults in developing countries.

Beware the tank top-clad movie heroine. In current cinema shorthand, a muscle shirt pretty much guarantees that the wearer is one tough-but-sexy woman. Take Linda Hamilton in "Terminator 2," or Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis in "Thelma and Louise."
