Pay It Forward


Mimi Leder eschews explosions (The Peacemaker) and cosmic disasters (Deep Impact) for soggy `inspirational' drama. Kevin Spacey slightly tempers his sardonic schtick as a teacher who tells his pupils to do something to improve the world. Inspired, young Trevor (Haley Joel Osment) comes up with an idea whereby good deeds are paid forward rather than back. For a while it goes well, but tragedy and a nauseatingly mawkish climax are just around the corner.
