Night Moves

Now Playing Synopsis: Private eye Harry Moseby (Gene Hackman) is dedicated to his job, but his dedication does not make him happy or powerful in his personal life, and his wife (Susan Clark) is cheating on him. Aging actress Arlene Iverson (Janet Ward) hires Harry to find her trust-funded daughter Delly (Melanie Griffith), distracting Harry from his marital problems as he tracks the lascivious runaway teen to Florida. In the Keys, Harry has an affair of his own with Paula (Jennifer Warren), and he succeeds in locating Delly, even as he learns that finding her is only the beginning of a much larger case. As the "accidental" deaths multiply, Harry discovers that everyone has his or her own motives and that he cannot do much to stem the tide of deep-seated depravity. ~ Lucia Bozzola, Rovi Cast: Gene Hackman, Jennifer Warren, Edward Binns, Harris Yulin, Susan Clark Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Early end appears cowardly to public

...great. Greta Garbo did it, and so did Jane's Addiction. Both Cheers and M*A*S*H prematurely pulled the plug. Gene Hackman and Sean Connery seem to have done it, and last week, Jamie Lee Curtis announced that she was done. What a bunch...

Review: 'Superman Returns'

...string of maudlin flops, he still knows how to deliver a complex, subtle performance. He doesn't chew the scenery as Gene Hackman did in portraying the self-professed criminal mastermind, but he's smolderingly smarmy in a way that's just as...
