After a year off, Rosie Perez is back starring in Nancy Savoca's tale of pre- and postnatal stress, "The 24 Hour Woman." It's an apt title for former choreographer Perez, 34, who is tackling animation voicing for a DreamWorks project and doing her first screenwriting in addition to acting and running Ten in a Car Productions, which did the acclaimed cable series "Subway Stories." BABY TALK: "I've seen the 'baby films.' But when I read this script, I was, 'Oh, this is different. This is scary!'

ROSIE PEREZ is an actor, director and choreographer. Her IFC documentary about Puerto Ricans in the U.S. and on the island is "Yo soy Boricua, pa'que tu lo sepas!" and was just released on DVD. The title translates as "I am Boricua, just so you know!" How did you become a documentarian? Really out of frustration. Not being able to get what I wanted made. I wanted to do a feature film on the sterilization of Puerto Rican women. I couldn't get the financing. At the time it was the early '90s.

Alexandre Rockwell's "Somebody to Love" is a valentine to Rosie Perez, whose career includes numerous bigger and more prestigious pictures but who surely must cherish this modest and amusing little heart-tugger for the way in which it showcases her unique beauty, talent and personality.

Wait a minute! Before the Dodgers make the mistake of angrily casting Odalis Perez to the trade winds, and before anyone suggests that the season has been undermined by a broken fingernail, let's remember two things: * Nothing has undermined the season more than the broken bats of an offense that has been shut out 13 times, scored two runs or fewer in a debilitating 58 games and was hesitantly addressed by the general manager under the shortsighted philosophy of the owner.

Rosie Perez joins Bridget Fonda and Nicolas Cage in "Cop Gives Waitress $2 Million Tip." Perez plays Cage's wife in the movie about a police officer and a waitress who share a winning lottery ticket and end up falling in love. Filming starts next month in New York. The actress and choreographer of Puerto Rican heritage was last seen in "White Men Can't Jump." The on-again, off-again saga of a movie on the life of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is apparently on again.

Jeff Bridges was never better than in this 1993 Peter Weir film in which he plays a man transformed by having survived an airplane crash. Rosie Perez (pictured) overacts as a fellow survivor to whom he is is drawn in the aftermath of tragedy. But Isabella Rossellini really comes into her own as actress in her portrayal of Bridges' wife, struggling to understand. Bridges is more effective than the film is as a whole, but it is nevertheless a powerful, stirring experience.

This 1994 romantic comedy is about the consequences of doing the right thing. It's slight but sweet. Charlie Lang (Nicolas Cage) is a New York cop with an overdose of decency. When Charlie finds himself in a diner short of a tip, he makes a pie-in-the-sky promise to his waitress (Bridget Fonda) to give her half of any possible winnings on his just-purchased lottery ticket.
