FREEBIE AND THE BEAN (Warner Bros.):: There are more dead pedestrians in this script than anything since What's Up, Doc? There is also more fagbaiting by James Caan than in anything he's ever done. There is also, however, Alan Arkin, who in one grimace can be both funny and vicious, which makes me think he should have played Lenny Bruce. So what's he doing here?
