Along Came A Spider
Morgan Freeman reprises his role as detective-psychologist Dr. Alex Cross in this adaptation of James Patterson's book of the same name. Once again, Cross is chasing a twisted madman; this time it's a teacher played by Michael Wincott, who turns to kidnapping and evil because his parents didn't love him. Monica Potter (Head Over Heels) takes over in the hot-chick department, a definite step down from Kiss the Girls' Ashley Judd. While there are a few plot surprises, this would-be thriller is cookie cutter, suspense film stuff. Rated R. See "Opening Friday" for theaters and times.
