"Five" offers few great moments, but a few good performances

With products and football players awash in pink and pink ribbons, you've probably noticed that it's Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

"Five" (9 tonight, Lifetime) aims to raise awareness of the disease by focusing on the emotional issues surrounding the diagnosis, through five different stories, three directed by star names -- Jennifer Aniston, Alicia Keys and Demi Moore. The other two were handled by two women more experienced in the craft, Patty Jenkins ("Monster") and Penelope Spheeris ("Wayne's World").

The result is a well-intentioned, but uneven mix of tales, none with great moments of insight, but some with moments of grace and humor.
