THE EVENING STAR (PG-13) Any crying in response to this unexceptional, death-strewn sequel to Terms of Endearment occurs strictly on a one-tear-at-a-time basis. Shirley MacLaine is back as Texas force of nature Aurora Greenway, who still has her steely charms about her: She beds a younger man (Bill Paxton), squabbles with her housekeeper (Marion Ross), and reunites with her old astronaut flame (Jack Nicholson, in an eight-minute appearance).
