'Hope Floats' starts off strong, but winds up boring

(06/01/98 9:00am)

"Hope Floats" starts off as a sharp parody of talk-show television. Kathy Najimy, in a dead-on portrayal of a Ricki Lake type, plays Toni Post, a pseudo-sincere TV hostess. Poor, unsuspecting Birdie (Sandra Bullock) comes on the show, expecting a free makeover. Well, she's in for a shock when she finds out that her husband has been having an affair with her best friend.

Once Around

Something strange happened to me about three weeks ago as I was making my way into a crowded cafe during a typical lunch hour in Manhattan. I'm no stranger to New York City and yet my feet felt out of step walking up and down 56th Street. I was scared. I wasn't exactly sure what frightened me but as I sat down alone at the bar to eat my oversized sandwich I felt kind of sad. Almost like I was going to cry. But I couldn't. And I didn't want to either.
