On Demand movie highlights

PHILADELPHIA (Encore on Comcast) Jonathan Demme directs this landmark 1993 movie about a hotshot lawyer (Tom Hanks) who gets fired for having AIDS and the homophobe (Denzel Washington) who becomes his defender. It is perhaps a little too neat, but overall dramatically potent. (PG-13; runs through Feb. 28)

LOOK WHO’S TALKING

(Comcast Free Movies) A career woman’s (Kirstie Alley) newborn baby speaks with the voice of Bruce Willis, while an appealingly relaxed John Travolta does the babysitting. The movie runs out of steam halfway through, lapsing into TV sitcom territory. (PG-13; runs through April 26)

THE NET
