  • The Scene
  • Legally Blonde

    A sort of reverse Cinderella tale, where the princess discovers her true nature after being exiled to a gloomy Harvard where her sunny disposition is mistaken for stupidity. Reese Witherspoon excels at playing a prototypical ditz who taps blonde ambition, girl power and female intuition — to help win a high-profile murder case.

  • The Score

    Robert De Niro and Marlon Brando are big disappointments in this heist tale that is so lacking in both violence and visual flash. Only Ed Norton pops and sparkles.

  • Classic cones

    You can go to Guernsey Farms just for an ice cream cone, or to buy dairy products from a little convenience store, or you can go for a meal. In the restaurant, broasted chicken is the special. It comes with a tasty coleslaw and potato, as well as a scoop of ice cream. Also worth trying is the meat loaf or a broasted pork chop. And you're saving room for dessert, right? How about the Black and White sundae — a combination of chocolate and vanilla ice cream with marshmallow and hot fudge, sprinkled with nuts, piled with whipped cream, and a cherry? Wow!
