While "Role Models" might be the unlikeliest place to find a reference to the late Marvin Hamlisch, it speaks to the songwriter/composer/arranger's reach and admirability that his name could be dropped into a bawdy R-rated comedy. And while that reference likely flew over the heads of most who were watching that movie, cinephiles know that Hamlisch's passing this week is a great loss. The man was behind the music for some of the most important films of the last few decades, including, yes, "The Sting," but also "Sophie's Choice," "Ordinary People," "The Spy Who Loved Me," "Same Time Next Year" and more. But it seems Hamlisch has one more gift for movie fans, and it's arriving in a unique package.
