N oted still photographer Larry Clark's infamous film "Kids" makes its video debut. The film is disturbing not so much for its graphic, no-holds- barred depiction of a certain segment of American teen-agers in the throes of cheap, empty thrills . — drugs, booze and sex — but because all the sordidness here has been so passively, and dispassionately, recorded. Clark's film has no point of view other than to rub our noses in the spectacle of teen-agers running amok, recklessly destroying their futures for the sake of immediate pleasures. The movie has been the subject of a ratings battle between the Motion Pictures Association of America, which has rated it NC-17, and its distributor, Excalibur Films, which has elected to release it sans rating. (Not rated). Something to Talk About Dennis Quaid is cheating on wife Julia Roberts, and the whole town's talking about it in this romantic comedy, directed by Lasse Halstrom. The fihn is about colorful Southern horse-raising women and the not-so-colorful men in their lives. "Something To Talk About" is a crisp and effective comedy — but one longs for Holly Hunter in the lead role, and her penchant for playing an adorable honeybunch of a woman. Roberts gets the job done, largely by flashing that smile, shaking that mane and being unabashedly cute. "Thelma & Louise's" Callie Khouri wrote the screenplay. Robert Duvall and Gena Rowlands play Roberts' parents, Kyra Sedgwick her sister. (R) Senior Trip Matt Frewer and Tommy Chong lead a partying army of high schoolers to the nation's capital in "National Lampoon's Senior Trip." In Washington, the students wreak havoc. Janet Maslin of the New York Times calls it the "last gasp of a threadbare comedy series. Pauly Shore would be an asset."(R) Dramas • CLEAN, SHAVEN —1995. Directed by Lodge Kerrigan.

Downs to be '20/20' subject By The Associated Press C AREFREE, Ariz. — The topic on "20/20" will be host Hugh Downs himself — or, more accurately, his bad knees. The 74-year-old newsman will undergo joint replacement in both knees on Saturday in Boston, and the operation will be the subject of a segment to be broadcast on the ABC program in late February. On Monday, Downs was filmed in this Phoenix suburb where he lives as he talked with his physician, Dr. Martin Chattman. "He can show other senior citizens that this is doable surgery," Chattman said. Downs said he agreed to the report after he learned that about 150,000 people have such surgery each year and that about 16 million Americans have conditions that > will lead to joint replacements. i Downs expects to miss only the Feb. 2 broadcast and to return the following week. "I told Barbara Walters to simply say that I'm on assignment — which, of course, I am," he said.
