  • Identity Trapped by a violent Nevada rainstorm, 10 travelers are forced to seek refuge at a strange desert motel. They soon realize they've found anything but shelter. There's a killer among them and, one by one, they are brutally murdered. As the storm rages on and the corpses pile up, the survivors begin to turn on one another, and as accusations fly, one things becomes clear: Each of them was mysteriously drawn to the motel, not by accident or circumstance, but by forces beyond imagination. So they must fight to uncover the identity of the killer, before they're all eventually eliminated. Mildly exciting thriller -- with plenty of twists and turns -- owes much to Agatha Christie. Director: James Mangold. Stars: John Cusack, Ray Liotta, Amanda Peet, Rebecca DeMornay, Alfred Molina, Clea DuVall, John C. McGinley, Jake Busey. 2003, CC, MPAA rating: R, 90 min., Thriller, Box office gross: $51.475 million, Columbia TriStar, No VHS SRP, Priced for rental. DVD: Day & Date. 3 stars

  • Man Apart, A Sean Vetter (Vin Diesel) and his partner Demetrius Hicks (Larenz Tate) came up on the mean streets of Los Angeles but now work together as DEA agents, fighting a seven-year war to stem the virulent drug pipeline along the U.S./Mexico border. Dubbed "the gunslingers" for their tough street tactics, their perseverance pays off when they take down notorious Baja Cartel kingpin Memo Lucero (Geno Silva). With Lucero locked away in a maximum security prison, Vetter is finally able to go home to his wife, Stacy (Jacqueline Obradors). But in the wake of Lucero's arrest, a mysterious figure, known only as Diablo, emerges to violently claim the Baja Cartel. And when Vetter and Hicks set their sights on identifying and stopping this dangerous and elusive new player, Diablo makes the fight personal by murdering Stacy. With nothing to lose, Vetter pulls out every hidden resource at his disposal to bring Diablo down -- including an unlikely alliance with the jailed Cartel boss Lucero. He will stop at nothing to avenge his wife's murder, edging dangerously close to the line between justice and lawlessness, even if it sets him at odds with the police unit to which he has dedicated his life.

So, Buddy moves in with Dave to help him battle his inner demons -- but who here really needs the help? Dr. Buddy acts out at every opportunity, including making lewd comments about Dave's girlfriend Linda (Marisa Tomei) and goading Dave into confronting every slight, past or present, head-on. An at-times uproarious comedy with Sandler more restrained than usual (which makes us like him even more and makes us sure that his delicately acted roles in "The Wedding Singer" and "Punch-Drunk Love" were not flukes) and Nicholson is ... well, Nicholson.
