SUN SCORE * Serving Sara is misnamed. Ill-Serving Matthew Perry, Elizabeth Hurley and Anyone Else Associated With This Inert Lump of Celluloid would be more like it. This movie doesn't play; it just lies there, waiting to be kicked around by anyone unfortunate enough to have shelled out good money to see it. Perry, trying desperately to lay the groundwork for a post-Friends career, doesn't. As Joe Tyler, a process server assigned to deliver divorce papers to the trophy wife of a rich Texan, he's about as funny as a summons and should be as assiduously avoided.

As a send-up of '60s spy films, "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" is fitfully funny, particularly in an opening street scene that imagines "A Hard Day's Night" as the latest James Bond film, providing the movie with a peak it never approaches again.As played by Mike Myers (desperately trying to prove he can do something other than "Wayne's World"), Powers is the geekiest secret agent imaginable, and the joke is that women find him sexually irresistible.But when his nemesis, Dr. Evil (Myers again)

As retread TV goes, "My Favorite Martian" ain't all that bad.That it's not offensive is a minor miracle, considering it comes from Disney's live-action division, which in recent years has specialized in films about as funny as an attack of gas (and these films invariably thought attacks of gas were funny). But thanks to a talented cast and an unforced script, "My Favorite Martian" is actually entertaining.This go-round, it's Christopher Lloyd as Uncle Martin, the Earth-bound Martian whose only friend is hyperkinetic, eager-to-please reporter Tim O'Hara (Jeff Daniels)

THE TABLOIDS have had an absolute field day with Hugh Grant's arrest last week in Los Angeles. Here are just a few of the headlines: "How could Hugh?" "Caught with his pants down." Even my newspaper had its fun: "Would Hugh pay for sex?"It is one of those incredible stories that capture the imagination in a perverse sort of way and keep people talking.Why would someone who seems to have it all, risk it all, in what many people have termed a sleazy act?zTC Obviously, because he never expected to be caught.

What a squandered chance "Dangerous Ground" represents. How promising it seemed, how ordinary it turned out.Set in post-apartheid South Africa, it chronicles a people as they deal with the aftermath of a shattered dream. The grip of the hated Afrikaners finally broken, a black population no longer subject to white whims must face the predations of beasts its own skin color: dope dealers, shooters and gangsters. Sounds just like East L.A.But the movie, which has a terrific sense of physical reality and equally a feeling of complete freshness, soon comes to stink of the oldest of formulas, the old vigilante justice thing where an aggrieved man finally takes up the automatic weapon, sprays some bad guys, and goes home to live happily ever after, or at least until the next group of bad guys needs to be sprayed.

You have bullets, brawn and babes in bikinis.So whaddaya want with plot?TNT's new movie "Assault on Devil's Island" (8 p.m.-10 p.m. repeats 10 p.m.-midnight and midnight-2 a.m.) is a movie for putting your brain on autopilot and watching things get blowed up real good. By those standards, it's a Rembrandt.Terry "Hulk" Hogan is Navy SEAL Mike McBride, a big mean hero with a chip on his shoulder -- a traitorous British pal got one of his men killed during a raid on a drug lord.
