What's on tv

It's all about the film festival. Celebrities. Glitz. Fashion. Yawn.

Jack Sparrow to the rescue! There's a new Disney movie channel in the lineup.

What not to watch this week. Our tv magazine rates shows and movies using a star system: one star is ok, four stars is best. They use another symbol for really bad movies: the red dot. It means "à zapper" (change the channel!). The editors often include comments about the movie that make me laugh.

No snakes. No sharks. No aliens. No tornadoes. No black holes. Just an equality-of-the-sexes film, and apparently a bad one. And Anne Bancroft! Really? Heaven holds a place for those who pray. Hey, hey, hey.

A armes égales (G.I. Jane). American action film. Directed by Ridley Scott, 1997.
With Demi Moore, Viggo Mortensen, and Anne Bancroft.
A female lieutenant undergoes the rigors of Navy Seals training and proves that the so-called weaker sex can take on delicate military missions.
The simplistic theme, clumsily realized, and the absurdity of numerous scenes end up making this film unintentionally funny. A real stinker.
For adults and children over ten.
