Royal doings in DenmarkVIDEO Mel Gibson makes a surprisingly able "Hamlet" in the engrossing Franco Zeffirelli version of the Shakespearean tragedy. You may know all the details of the plot, but you'll still be caught up in the royal doings in Denmark. Mr. Zeffirelli knows how to take a familiar story and do new things with it. Glenn Close plays Hamlet's mother, and she is even better than Mr. Gibson. Rating: PG. *** To prove the point that the intensity of athletic competition is the same regardless of the level of ability, check out "ABC's Wide World of Sports" today (4:30 p.m., Channel 13)

Fox. It wants to be a charmer and is. It's a very loose film, a scene-by-scene movie that leaves you feeling glad you've seen it.There is nothing world-shattering about it, but it does provide a very good time.
