Matthew Modine has gone to the dogs. And no, I'm not talking about the fact that his last movie, "Bye Bye, Love," was a box-office bowser, skedaddling out of the theaters faster than a mutt with a Chevy to chase. I'm mean he's really a dog in "Fluke." Four paws, shaggy coat, wet nose, mouth full of sharp teeth and dog breath.
Clint Eastwood and Meryl Streep star in "The Bridges of Madison County."

Hollywood seldom makes movies about Hispanics. When the studios do, the films are violent sagas about criminal gangs: "American Me, Mi Vida Loca, " and "Blood In, Blood Out." "My Family "is an exception, a generational family epic that gives a more rounded view of barrio culture.
