Billy Crystal, Gheorghe Muresan (1998, Warner, PG, $103.99) This sentimental comedy about a struggling Hollywood agent (Crystal) and his lovelorn giant of a client (Muresan) was too pat to stand out during its theatrical run, relying first on what sound like leftover quips from Crystal’s better vehicles and later on melodrama once Muresan’s heart condition becomes grimly less metaphorical. Still, it’s a watchable rental. Crystal’s wisenheimer Long Island charm wears well, and Muresan, the 7-foot-7 Washington Wizards center, is surprisingly endearing, especially when you can understand what he’s saying. Watch for Steven Seagal’s amusing cameo.
