Be Cool
Starring an unbelievably hip all-star cast, including John Travolta, Uma Thurman, André 3000, Steven Tyler and The Rock, and bursting with the hottest music in the biz, Be Cool is the wildly hilarious tale about a gangster turned music mogul and what it takes to be number one with a bullet. When Chili Palmer (Travolta) decides to try his hand in the music industry, he romances the sultry widow (Thurman) of a recently whacked music exec, poaches a hot young singer (Christina Milian) from a rival label and discovers that the record industry is packin' a whole lot more than a tune!

The Cutting Edge SYNOPSIS:
Moira Kelly (Dangerous Beauty, "The West Wing") and D. B. Sweeney (Fire in the Sky) star as polar opposites who unite on the ice for a shot at Olympic gold in this inspirational romantic comedy from acclaimed director Paul M. Glaser (The Running Man). Brimming with wit, charm and plenty of breathtaking sports action, The Cutting Edge is a real winner! She's a rich and refined pairs figure skater whose prima donna attitude has her skating solo. He's a brash, blue-collar hockey champion with a new injury and no future. With nothing in common but their dream of reaching the Olympics, Kate and Doug are each other's last resort. Reluctantly, they join forces, but it's not long before the barbs and sparks start flying as the unlikely pair skate towards the opportunity of a lifetime: a chance at a medal... and a chance at love.

Four Weddings & A Funeral SYNOPSIS:
The champagne is flowing and so is the fun in this "delightful and sly" (Roger Ebert) romantic comedy about two people who belong together but just can't seem to tie the knot. Ushering in two Academy Award® nominations, and starring Hugh Grant (Notting Hill), Andie MacDowell (Short Cuts) and a superb ensemble cast that includes Oscar® nominee Kristin Scott Thomas (The English Patient), Four Weddings and a Funeral is truly "a very special occasion" (Rolling Stone)! Charlie (Grant) is always the best man but never the groom. Determined to avoid even a hint of commitment, this handsome English gentleman is notoriously late to every wedding. But today he's in for a real surprise because not only did he forget the ring... but he also just caught a glimpse of the girl of his dreams (MacDowell)! "Elegant, festive and very, very funny" (The New York Times), Four Weddings and a Funeral is engaging entertainment from beginning to end.

UPC: 883904233213
Rating: PG-13
Total Run Time: 202 minutes
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen 1.85:1

Jason Lee, Julia Stiles and Selma Blair star in this hysterically funny romance bursting with "surprising comedy, likable characters, memorable gags and running jokes that are funny every time" (Knight Ridder)! Paul is engaged to Karen (Blair) when he meets the perfect girl, Becky (Stiles) at his bachelor party. And to make matters worse, he's just discovered that the two are cousins! So in a situation like this, what's the guy thing to do? Tell white lies and cover things up. But as the wedding date fast approaches, Paul finds himself falling for Becky and is faced with an impossible decision: do the right thing or lose the real thing forever!

Honeymoon in Vegas FAST FACTS:
UPC: 883904233190
Rating: PG-13
Total Run Time: 95 minutes
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen 1.85:1

Honeymoon in Vegas SYNOPSIS:
James Caan (The Godfather), Nicolas Cage (Face/Off) and Sarah Jessica Parker ("Sex in the City") are three sides of a deliriously funny triangle in this "refreshing blast of comic lunacy" (WCBS-TV) that gambles with an off beat premise and hits the jackpot with big laughs! Jack Singer (Cage) is terrified of commitment but even more terrified of losing his beautiful school teacher fiancée Betsy (Parker). So as an act of faith, he takes the plunge and agrees to tie the knot in a quickie Vegas ceremony. But when he makes a bad $60,000 bet with mobster Tommy Korman (Caan), the marriage "knot" and all of Jack's dreams starts unraveling fast. The only way that Korman will forgive the debt, he says, is if Jack will loan him Betsy for the rest of the weekend! It's yet another sucker bet for Jack though because Korman plans to win Betsy away for good!

Overboard FAST FACTS:
UPC: 883904233305
Rating: PG
Total Run Time: 114 minutes
Aspect Ratio: Widescreen 1.85:1

Overboard SYNOPSIS:
It's the craziest mix-up ever! Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell dazzle the screen in this buoyant and screwball comedy of memory-making and memory-faking. One of Hollywood's most dynamic screen pairs, Hawn and Russell make the most of every hilarious situation in this delightful riches-to-rags romance that's perfect entertainment for anyone who appreciates a great practical joke. Hawn is Joanna Stayton, the pampered wife of a pretentious, yacht-owning socialite. When their boat gets stuck for repairs, Joanna employs carpenter Dean Proffitt (Russell) to improve her closet space. But when Dean asks to be paid, he's blatantly turned down by the "nothing is ever good enough for me" Joanna. So when Joanna falls overboard and gets a bad case of amnesia, Dean takes advantage of the situation and, in a stroke of retributive genius, tells her that she's his wife and the mother of his four unruly children!
