For Lisa Foiles, a dance recital isn't just a dance recital anymore. While waiting for her cue in the wings of a hall near her Riverside home one recent evening, the freckled 15-year-old was taken by surprise: The youngsters she was following skipped offstage--and did a double-take. "You're the girl on 'All That'!" one shrieked. "They waited for me to finish, and then there were 30 or 40 little girls around me [with] pieces of paper for me to autograph," Lisa said.

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?

Movie buffs and motorcycle fans can conjure memories of a 1991 Hollywood blockbuster -- starring California's former governor -- at a new exhibition at a Milwaukee museum. “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” is the name of  both the film and the display that opens Thursday at the Harley-Davidson Museum . At its core is a time-worn Fat Boy Harley ridden throughout the movie by actor and later California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The film also starred Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor in the story about a cyborg (Schwarzenegger)

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.

One can well imagine that Chuck Stewart is indeed "a very popular teacher." Eighth-graders seldom have their sexual curiosity so willingly accommodated by a classroom teacher. Adolescent curiosity notwithstanding, it is evident that Stewart has a personal agenda for educating his students that goes well beyond the physical science curriculum. 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.

The prime ingredients of any thriller are sheer drive and tension, and "Black Moon Rising" (citywide) has them. 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.

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.

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."
