"Blood & Wine," One Potent Cocktail by Barney Basin Gazette Reviewer Mix greed, blood, wine, diamonds and sex. Add a large dash, of a dashing Jack Nicholson, and stir with the swizzle shaped figure of Jennifer Lopez, pour into a glass labeled "Don't trust anyone." and you have one hell of a mean drink. If this film had been rated something less than "R" it would have been one heck of a mean cocktail. "Blood and Wine" is the story of a wine merchant who turns jewel thief. With the help of an accomplice he lifts a multimillion dollar diamond necklace from one of his accounts. While he is a fairly resourceful jewel thief, he is a rotten husband. His wife discovers his cheating ways, and without even yelling, "fore" takes a club.and tries to drive him out of her life. This, of course, puts a real kink in his ability to hock the ice as well as giving him one heck of a headache. After mugging her misguided mate the wife takes off with the luggage, which just happens to contain the hot ice, and so the chase and the rest of the story begins. There is also a teenage stepson who develops a crush on stepdad's mistress, but that is just an appetizer to the main story. Jack Nicholson plays the skirt chasing, bobble steal- ing, spirit selling, husband. While not one of his more memorable roles, Nicholson is so far ahead of this cast that it is definitely his film. Jack can do with one look what it takes many actors a whole page of dialogue to convey. Michael Caine is the only other member of the cast that comes close to Jack. Michael's portrayal of an aging jewel thief is supreme. While his character is that of a dying man he never lets you forget that he can be dangerous to those in his way. If you are a Jack Nicholson fan or just like a good crime story, rent "Blood & Wine." Now Showing THE SAINT PG13 GROSSE POINTE BLANK - R Coming Friday MURDER AT 1600 - R VOLCANO - PG13 Fri. & Sat.
