steps in to take care of new calf and kindred spirit. Maeva. But tragedy strikes in the form of mad cow disease. which threatens the entire herd. including Lucas' bovine pal; only a pardon from the French President can save her now. Things get a touch silly when the pair head for Paris. particularly Maeva‘s inadvertent trip on the Metro. But the father and son relationship is touching throughout. as is the underlying message about moving on after the death of a loved one. See review. The Filmhouse. Iidinburgh.

The Wedding Planner (PG) 00 (Adam Shankman. l'S. 200i ) Jennifer Lopez. Matthew .\Ic(’onaughey. Bridgette Wilson. I03 mins. Romantic comedies are ﬁlled with beautiful people who can't get dates. Lopez. hot from dumping Puff Daddy and scorching the transatlantic pop charts. is the latest absurdly attractive babe having trouble in the romance department. She plays Italian-.>\merican Mary More who plans other people‘s weddings. When a handsome doctor (.\lc(’onaughey 1 saves her from certain death. her troubles seem to be over. except for the fact that Mc(‘onaughey is engaged to be married in a ceremony organised by Lopez herself. The pacing gets sluggish as the wedding bells start to chime. and dubioth acting combine with every cliche in the book to make this an ultimately forgettable movie. ()deon. Kilmarnock.
