"Two Mikes Don't Make a Wright," a compilation of three short films opening today at the Charles, is held together on a pretext as clumsy as the pun in the title. The title, in fact, only makes one point: Here are three movies directed by two guys named Mike and one guy named Dennis, featuring comedian Steven Wright.It's an absurd match: The first film, an HBO-sponsored short featuring the master of deadpan surrealism Steven Wright, has nothing to do with the other two. It happens to be hilarious, but deals entirely with internal issues: That is, the relationship between a man and his shrink.

Last week, reader Bucky contributed this Top 10 list of Food Quotations on Dining@Large (baltimoresun.com/diningat large): Somewhere along the way, I started jotting down quotations that struck me as insightful or funny or potentially useful for staff meeting arguments in a little spiral-bound notebook that I carried around with me in my briefcase. ... I went into my collection of quotations (now stored on Microsoft Word) and dug out some of my favorites that would meet the pesky "food-related" requirement.

* Russell DeMont, Westminster, 6-8, Sr., C -- The tallest player in the county and also the most dominant. Has good hands and post up moves in the paint. DeMont averaged just under 10 points a game and 6.5 rebounds on a senior-dominated Westminster squad last season. He will be the go-to guy this year for the Owls. Also a strong presence on defense.* Josh Gursky, Liberty, 6-1, Sr., G -- A gutty player who can score both from the outside and inside, Gursky is the Lions' top returning scorer after averaging 12 a game last season.

Sometimes sly and witty, sometimes dull and forced, Coffee and Cigarettes is Jim Jarmusch's testimony to the difficulties and delights of communication. That they are difficulties neither coffee nor cigarettes can overcome makes the attempts no less fascinating to watch. Presented as a series of 11 vignettes filmed over the course of 15 years, their common thread the mass consumption of cigarettes and coffee, the movie gains most of its power from a steady stream of A-list personalities (Cate Banchett, Bill Murray, Steve Buscemi, Tom Waits)

It seemed like just another on-air phone call. Shortly before 10 a.m. yesterday, the hosts of the Kirk, Mark and Lopez morning show on 98 Rock (WIYY-FM) dialed the number of standup comedian Mitch Hedberg, who was scheduled for a phone interview. The nationally known jokester was booked for five straight shows at Baltimore's Improv beginning last night. A distraught-sounding woman answered and said that Hedberg wasn't available. She hung up. The mystery wasn't cleared up till midafternoon yesterday, when the comedian's publicists announced that Hedberg, 37, had passed away the night before.
