True to their promise, John Travolta and actress Kelly Preston married Thursday night at a midnight ceremony in Paris. They were in France for the premiere of his latest film, The Tender. It's No. 1 for Travolta, 37, and No. 2 for Preston, 28. They expect a child in the spring. Jackie Mason, who married his longtime manager Jyll Rosenfeld almost a month ago, was asked if anything's changed between them. "The truth of the matter is it's not much different from what life was before," said the comedian.

Jesus was a fairly even-tempered guy, but even he lost it a little bit when he saw the moneychangers in the temple. Can you imagine him working at QVC? This is the fish-out-of-water idea that drives "Holy Man," starring Eddie Murphy as a messianic figure who ends up working at a TV shopping network. Murphy plays "G," a spiritual man on a pilgrimage who is wandering through Miami, kneeling occasionally to kiss the grass, when he comes across two TV execs (Jeff Goldblum, Kelly Preston)

"The story of this film is very Shakespearean," says director James Wan. Executive producer Andrew Sugerman agrees: "It is a kind of classical Greek tragedy. It's a story about a man wrestling with his own inner demons. " Studio production notes are typically rife with such backslapping, highfalutin hyperbole, but really, please, Death Sentence ? Wake up, guys. Get real. This cheesy exploitation drama, with Kevin Bacon as a dad gone mad when his son is killed by tattooed gangbangers, has been adapted, and updated (sort of)

In Broken Bridges, a weepy country ballad of a movie, a military accident claims the lives of five soldiers from tiny Armor Springs, Tenn. Their funeral brings home the town's most renowned exiles: Bo Price (Toby Keith), a broken-down country star, known as "No Show Bo" for his habit of canceling concerts, and Angela Delton (Kelly Preston), a TV reporter in Miami. Each of them lost a younger brother in the crash. But that's not all they have in common. Back when they were high school sweethearts, Angela got pregnant, and Bo pulled his no-show act. She ran away, creating a bitter rift with her father, Jake (Burt Reynolds)

Designed as the ideal confection to attract a young girl or teen, What a Girl Wants will more likely hook their mothers. Ostensibly, the movie stars Nickelodeon luminary Amanda Bynes, but it truly belongs to Colin Firth, the thinking woman's Hugh Grant. Bynes, late of The Amanda Show, plays Daphne Reynolds, love child of a footloose American flower child (Kelly Preston) and English aristocrat Firth, who split before her birth despite true love because, well, that's the way these movies work.

The comedy "Nothing to Lose" is noteworthy for the historically weird buddy-movie casting of Tim Robbins and Martin Lawrence, surely the oddest couple since Oscar and Felix. The actors seem to come almost from different movie galaxies - Lawrence from the nearly straight-to-video ignominy of "Thin Line Between Love and Hate," the redlined WB highjinks of "Martin" and the police blotter; Robbins from the Oscar-nominated A-list and the good-citizen activism of projects like "Dead Man Walking.

Three films featuring odd combinations - an earthling-and-alien police team, a mixture of suburban nostalgia and creepy horror, and about the oddest pair of twins you'll ever see - are among this week's video releases. ALIEN NATION (1988) (CBS/Fox) $89.98. 89 minutes. James Caan, Mandy Patinkin. A ludicrous mix of Colors and I Married a Monster From Outer Space, this buddy-cop movie follows a human and his humanoid partner in the L.A. Police Department. It's not a comedy. It's not very good either.

Though billed as an Eddie Murphy comedy, Holy Man is neither an Eddie Murphy movie nor a comedy. It is New Age claptrap starring Jeff Goldblum as a ruthless programmer of Good Buy Shopping Network, Kelly Preston as a corporate cost-cutter, and Eddie Murphy as G, a shaven-head, pajama-wearing charismatic on a pilgrimage. Desperate to boost sales at his network, Ricky (Goldblum) hires G, a suspected vagrant, as a pitchman of products such as doormats and stain removers. G doesn't practice the soft-sell, but the spiritual sell: Don't buy this astroturf doormat; instead, go out and smell some grass.

JOHN PHILLIPS' "California Dreamin'" became Mackenzie Phillips' California nightmare. Mackenzie has been in and out of trouble so often over the past few decades it's hard to believe anything about her crazy life could still come as a surprise, but you don't get to talk with Oprah unless you have some big beans to spill. The daughter of the '60s pop legend (a co-founder of the Mamas and the Papas), told the talk queen yesterday that daddy raped her when she was a teen and that her sexual relationship with him later became "consensual.
