Let's go.See, it's already out on the chick network. They already know what's going on. They have very good intelligence, I'll say that.

The door swings open. Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is on the other side. The door slams shut. Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is still on the other side.Laughing, he finally makes it into the room. This wasn't a lame attempt at a Hollywood style "entrance," he says. "The door closed on me," he explains reaching out a hand in greeting.Well, not too many doors are closing on this guy these days.You know Gooding. He played the swaggering, loudmouth, professional football player who shouted the now-immortal phrase "Show me the money!"

THE QUESTION Reader Miriam Tillman, writing from UMBC, suggested this week's question: What song or piece of music will never be the same for you again after hearing it in a particular film? (The two that came to her mind are "Stuck in the Middle with You" in Reservoir Dogs, and "Singin' in the Rain" in A Clockwork Orange.) WHAT YOU SAY "Tomorrow (The Sun'll Come Out Tomorrow)," from Annie, is one of those songs I've never been able to stand; it had the same effect on me as fingernails on a chalkboard does for many others.

A typically solid performance from Tom Cruise, a star-making performance from Renee Zellweger and a scene-stealing (and Oscar-winning) performance from Cuba Gooding Jr. are only three of the many reasons to watch "Jerry Maguire" (8 p.m.-10: 30 p.m., Showtime).Cruise is Maguire, a sports agent who suffers a moment of moral clarity and pays for it by losing all of his clients -- save for one, an underappreciated (or is it underachieving?) wide receiver named Rod Tidwell (Gooding). With all his eggs suddenly in one basket, Maguire finds himself clawing to put Tidwell on top and re-establish himself in a business that no longer wants any part of him. Zellweger plays the secretary who casts her lot with Maguire and forces him to be the better person she knows he is (the scene where he finally tells her how he feels is one of those classic romantic moments that prove Hollywood magic often has nothing to do with special effects)

Actor Leonardo DiCaprio's declaration "I'm the king of the world!" in Titanic has been voted the cheesiest line in movie history, according to a survey of 2,000 British moviegoers, reports the BBC. Patrick Swayze's line in Dirty Dancing - "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" - came in second. "Is it still raining? I hadn't noticed," uttered by Andie MacDowell at the end of Four Weddings and a Funeral, was third. Fourth place belongs to Demi Moore in Ghost. "I love you," Swayze says, to which Moore replies: "Ditto."

In 1997, Cuba Gooding Jr., not yet 30, had almost everything show business could offer. Critics loved him. Peers had voted him an Oscar for his performance as the flamboyant wide receiver Rod Tidwell in Jerry Maguire. And the respect that came with his earlier portrayal of the conflicted teenager Tre Styles in Boyz N the Hood had not worn thin. That Gooding's career has since become a train wreck is hardly news. Over the past decade, he has fired agents with regularity, gone without representation for nearly a year and starred in a string of dubious projects that have been trashed by reviewers.

In further solidification of 1996 as the year of the independent film, the lion's share of Screen Actor Guild Award nominations announced yesterday went to performers in small pictures made outside the major studios.Nods went to the casts of "The English Patient," "Marvin's Room," "Shine," "Sling Blade" and "The Birdcage" and to many of the actors who starred in those films. Of the eight films given multiple nominations, only two ("The Birdcage" and "Jerry Maguire") were the products of major studios (MGM/UA and Columbia/TriStar, respectively)

In "Singin' in the Rain," Stanley Donen's brilliant spoof of old Hollywood, a squeaky-voiced, platinum-shagged silent film goddess named Lina Lamont (played by Jean Hagen) is faced with a terrifying reality: sound.Movies are starting to talk, and she's got a voice that pops light bulbs. "I ceeeeeen't steend 'im!" bleats Lina in her strangled helium soprano, as her voice coach reacts with stoicism and dismay. Gently, she corrects her: "I caaaahn't staaahnd him."Finally, after weeks of struggling, Lina says on screen: "I caaaahhhhn't steend 'im!"

At a glanceBronson Pinchot returns to TV on CBS tonight in a show that should prove harmless fun for kids and at least bearable for adults.Pinchot is "Meego" (8: 30 p.m.-9 p.m., WJZ, Channel 13), an alien who crash-lands near a house where dad (Ed Begley Jr.) is desperately searching for a nanny to care for his three kids. Meego soon fills the bill, much to the delight of brothers Alex and Trip (Erik Von Detten and Jonathan Lipnicki), who love the fact that he can fly, change shape, replay time, talk to dogs, and probably 100 other things that we'll discover as the season progresses.
