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)

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.

Cosby on dirty jokes Comedians today think a dirty mouth can replace creativity, says beloved Temple U. alum Bill Cosby. "Your dirty jokes are loaded with profanity," Cosby tells USA Today.

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.
