Grand Canyon

3

""All of life's riddles are answered in the movies"," says Steve Martin's bullish movie producer in Grand Canyon. Well, not quite all. Writer-director Lawrence Kasdan - - rallying the skill for ensemble drama he showed in 1983's The Big Chill - - tries, but can't quite manage to make sense of LA life, from the ghetto to Hollywood. He invests too many of his ideas in gobby philosophising - - notably by Kevin Kline's musing lawyer - - and not quite enough in the way of compelling drama. All-round cast competence helps keep things anchored, happily, though.
