"Bill, hi, it's Harry, out here on the left coast. How's life treatin' ya?" "Not too bad. They love me over there in Ireland. Maybe I should call up Terry McAuliffe and see if he can snag me a sweetheart mortgage deal on some castle over there, eh?"

(Rated PG-13) * "The X-Files" movie was spooky, scary, full of platonic tension and just as good as "The X-Files" on the small screen, according to a group of fervent young fans.

Santa a rapist? So Vixen claims. The reindeer, who are giving their "Rashomon"-like depositions at the North Pole police station, give accounts of Santa's character that range from Santa as benevolent social worker to Santa as hopeless sexual deviant.
