Carrie Rickey was born in L.A. around the time the Jennifer Jones/Laurence Olivier movie Carrie hit screens. Hence her name. Since then she's seen more than 12,000 films without losing her love of movies -- or wordplay. But don't envy her job too much. She has to sit through the likes of Battlefield Earth just so she can warn you not to.

Jacques Tati (1908-82) was a master of the maladroit. The French comedian and director, a lumbering, ladder-legged man, emphasized his misfit status in extended slapstick sequences that star himself as the Everyman who folds himself into places that barely contain him.
It's not your mother's Alice in Wonderland. Nor is Tim Burton's inspired mash-up of action fantasies your granny's magic-mushroom milkshake of Lewis Carroll's mindbender.
