To Skip Work -- and Beyond 

You don't see too many double features advertised anymore. It's a pity, because there's nothing quite like the back-to-back movie experience to justify skipping work. So call in sick today, because the AMC Chesterfield 14 in Chesterfield Mall (291 Chesterfield Mall Drive; 888-262-4386 or; $9 to $12) screens Toy Story and Toy Story 2 in 3-D as a twofer at 1, 4:45 and 8:30 p.m. today. Pixar's loving homage to the joy of toys stars Tom Hanks and Tim Allen, and if we're being completely fair, Randy Newman should get some attention for his fantastic scoring as well. I'm a big tough viking who eats raw pork and drinks rye whiskey for breakfast, and yet I can't hear Newman's "When She Loved Me" without getting choked up — why did that girl abandon all her toys on a hillside? Who does that to loved ones? Ah, I need a shot and pork chop — and probably an extra day or two off.
