Tom Arnold's star turn in "Carpool" is enough to explain why this comedy opened without benefit of advance screenings.Wide-eyed and mirthlessly peppy, Arnold soon wears out his welcome as a bumbling would-be bank robber who commandeers a group of young hostages. The children and Arnold compete madly for the honor of being most adorable person in the hijacked minivan. But it's a contest nobody wins.David Paymer, looking understandably chagrined, is the film's main asset as its straight man, the harried Dad."

That's the story of "Kate Brasher," a new CBS drama starring Mary Stuart Masterson ("Fried Green Tomatoes") as a financially strapped single mom who finds new life as a passionate victims' advocate at a community center where she herself came as a victim seeking legal help.

There's a very good reason Walt Disney has cornered the market when it comes to animated features. Artistic excellence and musical savvy aside, the company's strongest suit is its understanding that a successful animated feature should delight adults as much as it does their offspring.To his credit, Steven Spielberg is a kid at heart.
