SIX WEEKS is sentimentally cloying, inadvertently funny, and lasted at the box office about half the time of the title, thereby becoming one of the larger gobblers of 1982. Patrick Dalton (Dudley Moore) is running for office in California. Nicole (Katherine Healy), the precocious

daughter of wealthy Charlotte Dreyfus (Mary Tyler Moore), wants to work for his campaign, and although he doesn't want her initially, once he finds out that she's dying of leukemia, he will do anything to make her last days brighter. Charlotte and Dalton, who is married, begin to have an affair,

and they take Nicole on a fantasy vacation in New York City. This emotionally unsatisfying trifle is weak on several levels and will only work for the least dicriminating audiences. There's nothing real about the film--even the child's terrible illness is given a gloss that makes it seem

paltry.
