The Last Seduction (PolyGram). Linda Fiorentino is positively chilling as the ruthless Bridget, who rips off her drug-dealer husband (Bill Pullman), skips out of New York and hides in a small town where she continues her evil pursuits.
Cobb (Warner). Baseball great Ty Cobb (Tommy Lee Jones) recounts his life with a biographer (Robert Wuhl) in the early '60s, when he was in his 70s and dying of cancer. What we see isn't very pretty _ a rich and famous man who's a mean, obnoxious, drunken bully.
Mixed Nuts (Columbia TriStar). A farce about a bungling counselor (Steve Martin) and his staff at a chaotic suicide prevention hot-line center on Christmas Eve.
Ready to Wear (Miramax). Juggling a string of subplots in his usual style, director Robert Altman skewers the fashion industry in this comedy/drama set in Paris.
