Garcia has high hopes for film 'Jennifer 8 LOS ANGELES (AP) Andy Garcia has high regard for his new film, Jennifer 8, and makes no apologies for his current release, Hero, which never developed into a hit. Garcia, 36, stars in Jennifer 8 as a cop who quits mean L.A. for Northern California only to get caught up in a serial murder. "The script was incredibly precise and well-written and loaded, with contradictions and complexities and demons for the protagonist to overcome," Garcia said of Jennifer 8, which opens Friday. Meanwhile, Hero, with Dus-tin Hoffman and Geena Davis, has not done well at the box office. "I think it's doing well enough," Garcia said in a recent interview. "Commercially, you're setting yourself up, getting greedy if you want to just take everything home for yourself. I have no disappointments about that; I would've been disappointed if we had made a bad film or one that was somehow destroyed in order to aspire to be commercial. It's doing well enough, for me."
