    As funny as those vignettes are, they pale in comparison to Ali's interviews with political figures. As incredible as the cretin's inane questions are, the straightforward responses from people -- who either take Ali seriously or know the whole thing is a bit and play along -- are a scream.

    With a sexy, sumptuous look, "Soul Food" is that rare series that enhances and expands on the movie from which it draws its inspiration. Unfortunately, the show also shares the film's most troubling trait: It's a wonderful product about family, but it isn't appropriate for family viewing. [25 Jun 2000]

    Showtime's "Folk" relies too much on sitcom-like one-liners and double-entendres -- and the sex -- to carry it, instead of its interesting characters and universal themes of relationship woes, acceptance, and the fear of loneliness. [3 Dec 2000, p.5C]

    Most of the staples are there: the shootouts, flinty stares, purposeful strides through gunpowder smoke, tobacco spitting and rides into the sunset. What's missing is a little credibility. [2 Jan 1998]

    While Louis-Dreyfus' Elaine Benes was vapid and self-centered, which worked within "Seinfeld's" fractured framework, her Ellie Riggs' self-centered vapidity is off-putting. [15 Apr 2003]
