SHE’S THE ONE Edward Burns, Jennifer Aniston (1996, FoxVideo, R, priced for rental) Two brothers, three women. You do the math. It’s no surprise that Francis and Mickey (Mike McGlone and Burns), rivalrous siblings from Long Island, spend the length of Burns’ wry comedy about sex and relationships (and the relationship between the two) trying to get straight with the women in their lives. What is surprising is that these semi-jerks emerge with a few shreds of sympathy still sticking to them. But the roundly attractive women (Aniston, Cameron Diaz, and Maxine Bahns) rise to the top, which is why girlfriends everywhere will want their guys to sit through the video at least once — and also why guys will be very happy to oblige.
