AMERICA’S SWEETHEARTS(Encore on
LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS(Encore on Comcast) Rick Moranis stars as the nerdy Seymour in director Frank Oz’s remake of Roger Corman’s original tacky movie and adaptation of the off-Broadway play. Buoyed by Steve Martin’s sadistic dentist, this musical is solid entertainment. (PG-13; runs through July 30)
SLEUTH(Encore on Comcast) This two-character film based on Anthony Shaffer’s successful play is energized by sterling performances by Michael Caine and Laurence Olivier. Even if you guess the tricky climax before the end, you can watch two master actors pull out all the stops. (PG; runs through July 30)
