he new Jim Carrey-starring vehicle I Love You, Phillip Morris is a tough flick to describe. Ostensibly the true story of a maniacal con man, it’s hard to pin down whether it’s a comedy, a farce or an over-the-top gay love story. Perhaps it’s all three, but somewhere the film falls short and manages to never really find its footing. It’s also tough to figure out just who the target audience is for this film. Carrey fans might be amused to see their favorite star in his most

This week’s Horoscopes: Retrograde Saturn deals pop quizzes Saturn goes retrograde in Libra on Wednesday, Jan. 26. The planet of life lessons will deal pop quizzes in the area of relationships. Those closest to us will find new ways of pushing our buttons, and we may do the same without even realizing it. If conflict arises out of this irritation, at least it won’t be the same old argument. And the new conclusions that come out of it will make relationships closer in the future. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You will have a situation in which you’re not sure whether or not you really need help. Reach out anyway. Everyone will be better off for it. You have friends who will accommodate you at the drop of a hat. You do not usually call on them to do this, and that is one of the reasons why they are eager to help whenever you ask. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). To attach the appropriate significance to events is a skill. Leave your ego out of the decision and you’ll do great. For instance, if you don’t make the sale, it doesn’t mean you’re no good at sales. It just means it didn’t go your way this time. Shrug it off and try again. A wonderful reward comes Wednesday evening. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Stick with the schedule and with habits that have been working for you. If you forgo your usual routine, you can still show up on time where you need to be, but you’ll be less awake and aware of what’s going on around you. In order to be at your best this week, you’ll need to pay extra attention to your mental and physical states.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It will be difficult to get the attention, let alone the affection, of overly pressured and busy people. Their minds are crammed full, and there isn’t sufficient room in there for you. You will capture the imagination of someone whose life has enough leisure and ease to allow for a strong focus on you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’ll be playing a big game this week. When you feel overwhelmed by the pressures of a situation, bring yourself back. Notice more details of your environment than you normally would. Get present and connect with people. You can’t influence anyone if you’re not completely in the room. Stay in the game. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Though you know some people who are lucky when it comes to money, you usually have to make your own financial luck through long hours and sweat. This week is different. There will be a turn of events that makes you feel undeniably fortunate. Make the most of the bonus. It’s about time. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You try to live your life in accordance with certain axioms, but some aren’t making as much sense to you now as they once did. You could change the rules this week or give them a twist. For instance, instead of treating others how you want to be treated, treat them how they want to be treated. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are a student of human nature, and your studies will teach you something interesting this week. People typically care more about how you treat yourself than about how you treat them. You’ll take excellent care of yourself this week, and you will gain respect and love in the process. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You would consider it foolish to criticize or take a jab at the boss. However, when
it’s your turn to be in charge, you may learn that others don’t share your values and wisdom. You may catch heat from an underling. Nip it in the bud. Don’t feed the hand that bites you! CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). This is no time to be meek, modest and small. If you are somewhat deserving and mostly qualified to have the thing you want, ask for it. If you don’t get it, demand it. There is a high probability it will work. And if it doesn’t, at least you’ll gain self-respect, and next time it will be easier for you to ask. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You are not naturally inclined to boast or draw too much attention to yourself. However, if you’re going to get anywhere with your project this week, you will need to talk about what you’ve done. Practice and experiment until you find the perfect words and tone to frame your outstanding accomplishments. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your personal rituals will grease the wheels of production. Because this week is filled with distractions and fast changes, you could opt out of certain parts of your routine. Letting too many of your good habits slide at once will knock you off balance. Stick with the behaviors that have helped you get this far. THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS: You’ll celebrate with those who have known you for ages and who grow even more enamored with you each year. You’ll hear words to cherish for a lifetime in February. You will be promoted because of your diplomatic dealings at work in March. There’s a financial breakthrough in June, and you will have the funding to do something you’ve always wanted to do. Be someone’s hero in April by just being yourself. The romantic getaway you take in August will turn into a time-honored twp tradition.
