THE publicity department must have thought its dreams had come true when three solid box-office pulls - Sean Connery, Dustin Hoffman and Matthew Broderick - were brought together in one action comedy, Family Business (Pearl 9.45pm, Original Running Time 115 mins). And the three work well together, even though you never quite believe the Scottish/Jewish/Irish trio are a family. Unfortunately their efforts are let down by a poor script and depressing story-line. They play three generations of a family of criminals who come together, despite initial reluctance from Hoffman, to pull off the perfect heist. Nothing like a little larceny to bring a family together. Sidney Lumet, whose 40-year directing career has included films like 12 Angry Men, Dog Day Afternoon and Network, directed. Not one of his best, but Family Business, is entertaining in parts. HEARTBREAK Hotel (World 9.30pm, ORT 93 mins) is one you'll either love or loathe, depending on whether you can swallow the basic premise that a teenager kidnaps Elvis Presley in 1974 to cheer up his divorced mum who's been a lifelong fan. If your whimsy factor's high enough, then the film is a lot of fun and David Keith (An Officer and a Gentleman) is terrific as the King. If it isn't, then turn over immediately. Tuesday Weld (The Cincinnati Kid) plays the star-struck mother whom Elvis romances. PAUL George showed he could do more than just sit in those comfy chairs in Eye on Hongkong (Pearl 7.35pm), when he took part in the 24-hour Pedal Kart Grand Prix in Victoria Park to benefit six local charities. Katie Ledger talks to participants in the popular event and to Donald Li, chairman of the organising committee. Sue Brooks looks at the bizarre and colourful ceramics of Caroline Cheng, whose work is being exhibited as part of the Fringe Festival. Sue also talks to composer/percussionist/action artist Harald Weiss whose unusual performances include strange instruments such as the alto kalimba and the rainmaker. The Post's John Dykes waxes lyrical on Oscar-winner Daniel Day-Lewis's performance in The Last of the Mohicans. He also reviews the French film, Les Amants du Pont-Neuf, which stars Juliette Binoche who appeared with Day-Lewis in The Unbearable Lightness of Being. SCHOOLGIRLS are the subject of a report on 20/20 (Pearl 8.05pm), which suggests that they might do better at single sex schools. This conclusion is drawn after a recent study found that teachers in co-ed schools often focus more attention on males than females. There's also a story on what makes your heart skip a beat. No, not love, but a case of arrhythmia, or a persistently abnormal heartbeat. STAR's main feature film, On the Edge (STAR Plus 8pm, ORT 92 mins) is a predictable tale about a middle-aged man who tries to give meaning to his life by taking part in a tough race. ''Wes is to discover that the hardest race a man can run is with his past'' proclaims the synopsis, which should give some idea of what to expect. Bruce Dern (The 'Burbs) stars. THE sexist Dangerous Curves (Pearl 8.35pm) starts as it means to go on this week, when a ''beautiful young blonde, clad only in revealing undergarments, tries to arouse her lover''. He's not responding because he's preoccupied with a news story disputing his controversial investigation into the assassination of President Kennedy. He hires those Personal Touch lovelies to protect him while he takes part in a re-enactment of Kennedy's last drive through Dallas. Plenty of opportunity there for the micro mini-clad girls to leap provocatively over open-topped cars . . . ho hum. JUST when Pearl had scored maximum brownie points for showing Superbowl XXVII live yesterday morning, they ruined it all last night by blabbing out the score without warning on the 7pm news. Many fans couldn't watch the match live as work beckoned, yet managed to avoid finding out the score all day so they could enjoy the highlights to the full. One furious fan attempted to ring the TV hotline immediately after the news to complain, only to find the lines were jammed - presumably by other frustrated Superbowl watchers.
