A high-spirited mermaid fantasy and romantic comedy, with Tom Hanks (pictured) and John Candy drowned in the loveliness of fin-flipping Daryl Hannah (pictured). It's not as good as it seemed in 1984, but director Ron Howard and the actors give it a nice bright bounce and splash.

When the dust settled at the box office this past weekend, two biblical-themed films found themselves at opposite ends of the top 10: The modestly budgeted family drama "Heaven Is for Real" earned an impressive $22.5 million to debut in the No. 2 slot, and Darren Aronofsky's Old Testament epic, "Noah," took in $5 million over its fourth weekend, putting it in the No. 9 spot. In a year when religious movies are fruitful and multiplying, "Heaven" and "Noah" represent two very different examples of Hollywood courting Christian audiences, and together they demonstrate some of the potential rewards and risks of doing so. "Noah" has proved by far the most controversial biblical-themed movie this year, and in the months leading up to its release, it came under fire for taking artistic license with Scripture.

There was less than a minute remaining, the score was tied, and where was the Clippers' most valuable player, biggest star and human billboard? Blake Griffin was standing on the sidelines having just fouled out. He was angrily staring up at the giant video screen. In his right hand he was holding a paper cup filled with water. Suddenly, he shouted something, spread his arms out in disgust, and dumped the entire cup over his right shoulder. Where it, um, coincidentally emptied upon a courtside fan wearing a Golden State Warriors T-shirt.

PHOENIX -- The last time the Dodgers were at Chase Field, they won the National League West and celebrated by leaping into the swimming pool on the other side of the short wall in right-center field. A controversy ensued, as some of the Arizona Diamondbacks claimed they felt disrespected. Sen. John McCain blasted the Dodgers on behalf of his home state. The Dodgers rolled their eyes, pointing to this as the latest small-minded complaint by their middle-market division rivals. If any bad blood remains from the incident, it didn't resurface Friday, when Adrian Gonzalez drove in five runs and Hyun-Jin Ryu had a strong outing in the Dodgers' 6-0 victory over the last-place Diamondbacks.

This has been a relatively quiet off-season for the Dodgers. They have spent nearly $80 million on free agents, but haven't added any headline acts to their star-studded roster. That could be a reflection of the Dodgers' necessities, or lack thereof. The three players who signed nine-figure contracts with other teams - Robinson Cano, Jacoby Ellsbury and Shin-Soo Choo - play positions at which the Dodgers are set for the foreseeable future. Or, that could be an indication the formerly free-spending team is close to hitting its financial limit, self-imposed or otherwise.

Authorities said the man, who has not been identified, was pulled from the water and rushed to a nearby hospital.  A busboy at the Ruby's Diner at the end of the Balboa Pier was outside cleaning tables when he saw a man falling from an unmarked, white helicopter about 300 feet above the ocean, said General Manager David Saighani.

As water from the Eastern Sierra began gushing down a hillside into the San Fernando Valley on Tuesday, an actor dressed as William Mulholland hollered on cue, "There it is! Take it!"  Exactly 100 years after the opening of the aqueduct that would transform the young city and its surrounding orchards and dust-and-tumbleweed ranches into modern Los Angeles, the 1913 celebration of its completion was reenacted at the Santa Susana foothills site where mountain water still splashes down a sluice.

The Splash gave up only 10 shots on goal in the second half, but Sacramento scored four times to win, 9-6, in a Continental Indoor Soccer League game Saturday at Arco Arena. The Splash dropped to 11-11, two games behind first-place San Diego in the Western Division. Second-place Sacramento (13-11) is one game behind the Sockers. The Splash had 12 minutes of penalties, the Knights none, and Sacramento converted two of its three power-play chances against the league's best penalty-killing unit.

The unsigned article, "Project Makes a Splash" (Feb. 28), about the proposed Santa Monica "water garden," provoked me to reply. Make A Splash, according to the dictionary, means "to attract great, often brief attention by doing something striking, spectacular or ostentatious." The author of this article hit the nail on the head. This 1,370,717-square-foot complex has indeed made its splash, and soon my once quiet, uncongested and relatively pollution-free neighborhood will come away soaking wet. JERRY POMERANTZ Santa Monica
