CRITICS SAY EQUINE ACTOR A WINNER IN 'HIDALGO'

"Hidalgo" is the American mustang that was entered in the 1890 Ocean of Fire, a 3,000-mile survival race across the Arabian desert.

'WIN A DATE' A TAD MUCH (UNLESS YOU LOVE THE '50S)

Can a movie with a title like "Win a date with Tad Hamilton!" succeed? Well maybe, providing you are about 14, and not intellectually inclined.

NERD DIGS BEAUTY QUEEN IN HIP HOP SETTING, TOO

"Love Don't Cost a Thing" is a conventional comedy about teen-age romance between the school nerd and the school beauty queen. What's gotten the critics' attention -- for better or for worse -- is that it's an African-American hip hop remake of the 1987 "Can't Buy Me Love" set in middle-class white suburbia.

CRUISE WINS OVER CRITICS IN 'THE LAST SAMURAI'

It isn't Japanese, and it isn't Kurosawa, but "The Last Samurai" appears to have enough of the American right stuff to stand on its own.

When a semi-washed-up rock guitarist becomes a bogus school teacher to a bunch of straight-arrow private school kids, it's grounds for a movie; it's grounds for a "School of Rock." Critics say the film has a hokey plot and is full of stereotypes -- and they love it.
