The Spotlight

Liar liar (Dubbed in Czech) - Wackey Jim Carrey's latest flick shows him at his outrageous best. Carrey plays a lawyer who lies his way to victory and money but neglects his son who wishes that his father would always tell the truth. After that, Carrey can't stop telling the truth even if it's best he keeps his mouth shut. (Klamár, Klamár)

Double team* - Jean-Claude Van Damme takes on the Russian mafia in this formula action flick. If you like the genre, then it delivers - stunts get riskier and the kicks more devastating, while the plot remains simple (kill the bad guys). Watch out for a surprise appearance by the NBA's most famous cross-dresser. (Nebezpečny Tandem).

Ghosts of Mississippi* - An action thriller laced with latent political undertones as the black residents of Mississippi search for justice and equal rights amid the enveloping presence of the Ku Klux Klan. Starring Whoopi Goldberg, Alec Baldwin and James Woods and directed by Rob Reiner. (Dúch Minulosti)

Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead* - Gary Fleder, puts on a rockabilly gansgter flick strongly influenced by Quentin Tarantino's runaway hit "Pulp Fiction." Top Mobster Andy Garcia wants to get out of the trade, but is lured to spearhead one last trick. Look for the black comedy typical of this sprouting genre. (Čo Robit v Denveri, Keď Človek Nežije)

French kiss* - Meg Ryan tries to regain the humor that won her accolades in "When Harry Met Sally" by playing an American woman in Paris trying to win back her love. The movie has its moments but Ryan whines way too much. Throw in a bizarre French accent from Kevin Kline and sentimental sap - stay home. (Francúzky bozk).

Relic*- A series of brutal murders in Chicago's natural science museum remain unexplained. Penelope Ann Miller as a biologist and Tom Sizemore as a young policeman team up to solve the mystery. What they find is a terrifying mutant that has enslaved its victums below the museum. A science fiction thriller based on the Douglas Preston novel. (Relic).
