There must be something in the water -- how else to explain two recent books revolving around dreamy swimming pools? The latest is photographer Veronique Vial's "Hollywood Splash" (powerHouse Books, $45), which came out last week and focuses on celebrities as they dive, wade and skinny-dip. Emmy-winning actor William H.

"Doogal" is the laziest, most disheartening kind of animated film for kids: one that seems interested in entertaining them only on the most fundamental level (through colorful talking animals and flatulence jokes) while frantically cramming in as many pop-culture references as possible to preoccupy their parents.

For most filmmakers, the chillingly amusing body-count comedy that is "Fargo" would be an act of daring.

Outpost Estates, developed in the 1920s, is one of the early Hollywood neighborhoods that has, through the years, attracted residents from the entertainment industry.

"TNT Screenworks," a TV-movie series created to showcase the work of stage writers, makes a sharp debut today with the startling adaptation of playwright David Mamet's "Water Engine" (TNT at 5, 7 and 9 p.m.). It's astonishing because Mamet's 1977 stage version, a radio-play-within-a-play set entirely in a broadcast studio, remains a muddle next to this wide open, riveting screen treatment, also written by Mamet. Screen adaptations frequently compromise or distort a stage play--but not here.

Outside the Governors Ball, handlers waited for their celebrities like tour guides awaiting tourists at the airport. Charlie Sheen, this way; Anjelica, over here. Inside, more than 400 Patina waiters in their Mao jackets had been instructed: no stargazing. But that didn't prevent the scuttlebutt -- "420, that's the best table in the house," one waitress said. Clearly, Al and Meryl's. Earlier, at the bar, Ellen DeGeneres had cornered Elaine Stritch.
