LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T hough it doesn't break any new ground, the Farrelly Brothers' new comedy, "Outside Providence," does a good job of telling a sweet coming-of-age story. The Weekly Alibi contributes an interview with two of its young stars.

"Chill Factor" is such a derivative movie, that no reviewer will be able to avoid comparing it to one of half a dozen others of recent memory.

A couple more reviews of "The Muse" have wandered in, and the critics are split. Hadley Hury suggests just saying "No!" Donna Bowman sees deep reflection on family, work and self-image.

Plus "The Astronaut's Wife," "Dudley Do-Right," Austin indie Bob Ray's "Rock Opera," and more.
