Any truly accomplished writer of comedy knows that deciding what to take out of a script often can be a lot harder than coming up with just the right line in the first place. A witty exchange or a bit of business can be very amusing in its own right and yet still stop a movie dead in its tracks by seeming out of place or out of synch with the character. Christopher Heisen and Adam Zarembok, who wrote My Engagement Party - a comedy that struggles to rise to the level of sophomoric, have yet to learn this fundamental truth about what separates situation comedy from the genuine article.

Hello there When Lauren, 29, began law school at the University of Pennsylvania in fall 2005, she thought she had a pretty good idea where life was taking her: She'd marry a Jewish guy and they'd settle in Philadelphia, or possibly New York. Early that semester on a group outing to a 76ers game, Lauren met Paulo, an MBA candidate from Brazil. He was attractive, smart, fun, and interested in her. And there was a certain chemistry between them. But Paulo did not fit her plan. "He's not Jewish, he's leaving soon [to return to Brazil]

Q uestion: I have a friend who always points when talking about someone, which I think is incredibly rude and makes people (especially those being pointed at) feel uncomfortable. But when I told her this, she insisted there was nothing offensive about this, and that people don't even notice it. Please settle this argument. - Liz in New Jersey Answer: Pointing is rude. It's that plain and simple. A person will certainly notice if he or she is being pointed at by a stranger or a friend.

Dear Amy: I am wondering about proper gift-giving etiquette when it comes to a combined engagement party/wedding reception being held nearly a year before the actual wedding. This is in celebration of one of my husband's coworkers and her fiance, who have a rocky "on again, off again" relationship. They are notoriously irresponsible with their finances. The wedding will be a destination wedding a year away. But on the invitation we received, they are requesting their wedding gifts now!

Question: I am marrying a wonderful man this fall. His sister has had a falling-out with all of her brothers. She did not accept a few invitations that have been offered to her (Thanksgiving, birthday parties, our engagement party). The groom's mom has refused to go to our wedding if his sister does not attend. If his mom does not attend, his father has stated he will not be attending. I am sad for my fiance, but also concerned the wedding may be all of my family and our friends, but no relatives on his side.

"I don't play golf and I don't fish. I want to die in the office. " - "60 Minutes" producer Don Hewitt, 75, on his retirement plans Ellen DeGeneres, convinced ABC will cancel her sitcom "Ellen" after its season finale next month, should resolve to spend some of her newfound free time studying show-biz etiquette. DeGeneres recently taped a guest appearance on the NBC series "Mad About You," and reportedly left the set with everybody mad at her. The star, playing a nanny on the May 19 episode of the Paul Reiser/Helen Hunt sitcom, "forgot it wasn't her program," the New York Post reported.

"Date with an Angel," a romantic comedy/fantasy starring Michael E. Knight, Phoebe Cates and Emmanuelle Beart. Written and directed by Tom McLoughlin. Running time: 105 minutes. A De Laurentis Entertainment Group release. It's a good thing that Tom McLoughlin's "Date with an Angel" is billed as a romantic comedy/fantasy, because one must suspend a fantastic amount of reason to get through his tale of boy meets girl. Michael E. Knight - formerly "Tad Martin" on the ABC soap "All My Children" - plays Jim Sanders, a hapless hero engaged to a spoiled little rich girl named Patty Winston - played by an appropriately bratty Phoebe Cates.

An early morning barn fire in the 7100 block of Sheaf Lane in Whitemarsh has not dampened the enthusiasm of two township businesswomen who said they lost an estimated $300,000 worth of company assets in the blaze. "We're not going to be held back. We're just going to start again," said Lois Caplan, a partner in Arrangements Unlimited Inc., a business that specializes in coordinating theme parties. The tablecloths, centerpieces, candles and Oriental vases accumulated during the last 12 years by Caplan and her partner, Lynne Brownstein, were reduced to ashes in the fire Friday, Caplan said.

DEAR ABBY: Was I spreading gossip by telling my former husband that our granddaughter's wedding was off? We had just returned from their engagement party. It is my understanding that one wants to cancel, while the other wants to go through with it. The wedding is a year away, and this has been the talk of the family for the last six months. Apparently, there has been trouble in paradise because she had an affair. As a result, they are now going to counseling. Our granddaughter said she was going to move back in with her mother for a while.

Question: My mother is the sweetest, most caring mother a girl could ever ask for. However, she has a tendency to overstep her boundaries. We live very far apart and see each other about twice per year. She recently invited herself on a vacation with my family (husband and child). I noted very delicately that it would be difficult to see and do everything we wanted to with her in tow (we are going to see other friends and family). I suggested she come to visit us later in the year.

* REVENGE. 10 p.m. tomorrow, 6 ABC.   NOTHING SAYS romance like an engagement party that ends with a body on the beach. Or so goes the thinking at ABC's "Revenge," which has taken 15 episodes to get back to the point where it began last fall, managing to plop that pivotal hour into the middle of February sweeps and into a week dominated by hearts and flowers. Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) couldn't have planned it better herself. The true architect of one of the season's guiltier pleasures, though, is executive producer Mike Kelley, and according to Gabriel Mann, who plays Nolan Ross, the Internet billionaire who's doing everything he can to help Emily avenge her late disgraced father, Kelley doesn't give much away.

The "girls" who came to see Girls Night were every age, shape, size, race, and color. There were even a few guys. A group of 11 high school teachers was sitting next to me. Everybody seemed to have the same good time. The show's unpretentious fun and the talented, unembarrassable women on stage had all of the audience on their feet, clapping, singing, and dancing in the aisles. Initially, Girls Night at the Kimmel Center looks like a truly awful bachelorette party: light-up tiaras, pink feather boas, and lots and lots of drinks.
