The possibilities are provocative: the voice of a little girl emanating from a completely grown-up body. Woody Allen capitalized on the contradiction when he cast Jennifer Tilly as a petulant featherbrain in Bullets Over Broadway, and she got an Oscar nod for Best Supporting Actress. She may well deserve one for her performance in the recent Bound, but Tilly’s potential has been wasted in movies that take themselves too seriously. Like Edie & Pen, a straight-to-cable cross between Thelma & Louise and The First Wives Club. Arriving in Reno for quickie divorces are the distraught Penelope (Stockard Channing) and the miniskirted Edie (Tilly). They seem to share little except a desire to drown their despair in tame debauchery; they later discover a more unsettling (and unlikely) connection. C+
