Based on the witless Royal Canadian Mountie character created by TV animation producer Jay Ward in the 1960s, "Dudley Do-Right" tries to stretch a seven-minute cartoon into a feature-length film -- with a seven-minute story.If there's a tale here worth telling, it's one of marketing over moviemaking: Get Brendan Fraser, the amiable hunk star of "George of the Jungle" (another Ward cartoon given the live-action treatment in 1997), and the crowd that made "George" a hit will do the same for "Dudley."

HAGERSTOWN - Experience was the decisive factor as Pat Tallent built a commanding lead in the morning, then played the necessary afternoon holes even to defeat Jim Richardson, 8 and 7, for the championship of the 79th annual Maryland State Amateur championship at Fountain Head Country Club yesterday. While Tallent, who plays from Congressional CC, has been a consistently solid player on the regional scene for some 15 years, Richardson, from Columbia and Redgate GC, was striking his first major blow since returning three years ago to a game he played well as a junior and collegian.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, "Blast From the Past" arrives as a sure-fire date movie to please everyone. A sweet boy-meets-girl love story to please shameless romantics, this fish-out-of-water comedy is funny enough to keep even un-romantics entertained.And this is a movie that crosses generational lines, as well: Although the lead players, Alicia Silverstone and Brendan Fraser, will clearly appeal to teen-agers and young adults, two hilarious supporting performances by Sissy Spacek and Christopher Walken make "Blast From the Past" worth seeing for filmgoers who may have aged out of those particular demographics.

Supple, poignant and frequently hilarious, "Guarding Tess" checks in as the year's first big movie surprise.Of course any movie with Shirley MacLaine begins its existence with a key question: Which MacLaine will show up? The restrained, wickedly vivid MacLaine of "Terms of Endearment" or the big, sloppy love-me-or-I'll-shoot-this-dog MacLaine of "Madam Sousatzka"?So it is that "Guarding Tess" gets off on exactly the right note when it becomes clear that MacLaine's former first lady Tess Carlisle is about as sentimental and self-indulgent as rubbing alcohol, and that MacLaine's performance is equally astringent.

LOS ANGELES -- Filming is scheduled to begin Feb. 14 in Baltimore on the pilot for a new network drama from Emmy-Award-winning producers Hugh Wilson and Tim Reid, according to Tom Nunan, president of entertainment at UPN. But he also said the role of the lead character, an 18-year-old boxer, has yet to be cast, which could push back the start date. "If we don't get the right lead, there's no reason to start filming," Nunan told reporters here on the Winter Press Tour yesterday. "So, that could delay things."
