"From the Hip," a comedy starring Judd Nelson, Elizabeth Perkins, John Hurt, Ray Walston and Darren McGavin. Directed by Bob Clark. Screenplay by David E. Kelley and Bob Clark. Running time: 111 minutes. A DEG release. At area theaters. I can imagine the meeting. The makers of "From the Hip" - realizing that they had on their hands a screenplay that had no dramatic tension, wasn't funny and made no sense - decided that they would depend on the personality and charm of the star, Judd Nelson, to carry the day. Bad move.

Dressed in a business suit and looking boyishly young despite a hint of gray around the temples, David Cone retired yesterday. He cut short his comeback with the New York Mets, calling it a career at age 40 because of an arthritic left hip, rather than a tired right arm. "This is the end, for sure," the pitcher said at Shea Stadium. "One of the old expressions in baseball is, 'It's time to get out of the game and give the young guys a chance,' " Cone said. Cone, who sat out the 2002 season, was 1-3 with a 6.50 ERA in five games this year, four of them starts.

Redskins fans, especially those who grew up during the George Allen years of the 1970s, were all smiles during Washington's fast start this season. First-year coach Jim Zorn unknowingly brought back a tradition that is somewhat revered by 'Skins fans of that long ago era when Vietnam and Watergate dominated the headlines. Though the Redskins never won a Super Bowl under Allen, they were in the playoffs in five of his six seasons in D.C. They were successful and fun and celebrated victories in a style kids today would consider old school . . . if not worse.

On stage, the self-proclaimed wizard of hip does dead-on impersonations of Sidney Poitier dancing, a black teenager desperate to lose his virginity and a sexually repressed nun administering an erotically charged beating with a metal ruler. Offstage, over raw oysters and crab linguini at the Striped Bass, Thomas W. Jones 2d limits himself to dead-on impersonations of less-than-fully-sentient audience members trying to "follow the bouncing Negro," an impatient Inquirer photographer checking his watch and a blithely uncooperative waiter disdaining to provide a needed fork.

The Wizard of Hip, or When in Doubt Slam Dunk is being staged in a cabaret setting at People's Light & Theatre Company's Steinbright Theater, and the nightclublike setting is appropriate for a show that is more comedy routine than theatrical presentation. Thomas H. Jones 2d, who is associated with the Jomandi theater in Atlanta, wrote and presents his monologue with a comedian's focus on laughs, not as a playwright/actor's attention to drama and character. As a comedy routine, The Wizard of Hip is fresh and frequently humorous, and Jones presents it with the successful standup comedian's unerring sense of timing, displaying as well an actor's instinct for expressive body movement.

Instead, Smith - chief operating officer and founder of the Little Giant creative agency, founder and publisher of two.one.five magazine, and partner in the Center City coworking space Pipeline Philly - found inspiration for his business acumen in more unconventional figures: Sean "Puffy" Combs, Jay Z, Dr. Dre.

"The Get Down" Baz Luhrmann's talent as a director is creating worlds that feel so close to our own yet are so far away. Take Romeo + Juliet , a movie that made Shakespeare feel like he was at home in 1990s Miami, but that also allowed us to live in Luhrmann's candy-colored fantasia for a few hours. They pop with color and light and energy. The drama is felt that much deeper, and there is wonder all around. That extends to The Get Down , Luhrmann's new messy but still fascinating take on the birth of hip-hop.

The Roots won't play the free July Fourth concert on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway this year, but the lineup will be decidedly rooted in Philadelphia. The performers may lack the star power of prior years, but most have city ties and aim to create a more patriotic, family-friendly atmosphere, organizers said Friday. Leslie Odom Jr., a star of the Broadway musical  Hamilton  and a native of East Oak Lane, will emcee the featured concert on July 4. Bucks County native Christina Perri will perform, as will Yazz the Greatest, a star of the TV show  Empire ; the Philly Pops; and the rhythm-and-blues band Brotherly Love.
