I realize that we live in a celebrity culture. I also realize that finding dates through personal ads is no longer the sole province of undesirable singles desperate for company and underground newspapers desperate for revenue. Not long ago, the New York Times ran this Page 1 headline: "Online Dating Sheds Its Stigma as Losers.com."

In the early '60s a Navy widow named Helen North and a Navy warrant officer, Frank Beardsley, a widower, made headlines when they were married in the mission at Carmel because between them they had 18 children. Their story inspired the delightful and surprisingly sophisticated 1968 comedy "Yours, Mine and Ours," starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda.

"The Thomas Crown Affair" plays by the rules. A moderately diverting entertainment as sleek and aerodynamically sound as the glider its characters tool around in, it takes no extraordinary chances and delivers no major surprises. With one exception. For though Pierce Brosnan, whose production company initiated the idea of remaking the 1968 Steve McQueen-Faye Dunaway caper film with an eye toward his eventual starring role, it's Rene Russo, his opposite number, who makes the most of this chance.

Insecurity dogged Rene Russo for 45 years--most of which, she says, were spent trying to please others. Now in the recently opened "The Thomas Crown Affair," she bucks her good-gal image and her nonthreatening nature to play a tough-talking, bosom-baring investigator. She aims to make people forget that Faye Dunaway ever played the same part (at 26) while giving hope to every woman over 40.

In her dream, Rene Russo goes to heaven. "I know you're going to laugh," says the 41-year-old actress, pale-blue eyes rolling skyward above her famous cheekbones, apologizing in advance for the treacle that will follow, "but I'm telling you, it was so powerful. I got to see heaven's perspective of Earth and my fears.

A 1995 light comedy set in an amoral setting, adapted from the Elmore Leonard's novel.
