A Speilberg-presented, Robert Zemeckis-
directed fantasy about a high school student who
rides a souped-up DeLorean into the '50s, and is
forced to insure his own existence by playing mat-
chmaker for his parents. A little too cute, but well
handled. At the Campus Theatre, 1214 S. Univer-
sity; 6684416; and the Wayside, 3020 Washtenaw,
Sword and sorcery-filled animated feature from
Disney. Although aimed at restoring Disney to its
former reputation, the film wallows in its own
mediocrity. At the Movies at Briarwood, Briar-
wood Mall, 769-8780.
Sting and Jennifer Beals (Flashdance) don't
quite make this monster movie work. At the Fox
Village Theatre, 375 N. Maple, 769-1300.
Gentle post-Speilbergian fantasy about
benevolent aliens, children, and geriatrics. Direc-
ted by Ron Howard (Splash). At the Movies at
Briarwood, Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
A woman tries to discover the murderer of her
dentist. It's supposed to be funny and suspenseful
but ends up being kinda boring. Stars Susan

Sarandon. At the Fox Village Theatre, 375 N.
Maple, 769-1300.
Peter O'Toole plays an eccentric genius closing
in on the greatest discovery of all time. Conflict:
The University doesn't want him to. Also stars
Mariel Hemingway. At the State Theatre, 231 S.
State, 662.6264.
Scariest but least adventuresome of George
Romero's Dead trilogy. Now the zombies are out of
Pennsylvanian farmlands and shopping malls,
roaming the post-nuclear countryside. The
humans are holed up in an underground missile
base, where tensions are high between the Rambo-
ish army (Romero's favorite target) and the
slightly warped scientists and their radical ex-
perimentations. Tempers flare as the zombies in-
crease their numbers and...You get the picture. At
the Movies at the Briarwood, Briarwood Mall, 769-
National Lampoon has the Griswalds headed off
for another silly vacation, this time to the Old
World. Stars Chevy Chase. At the State Theatre,
231 S. State, 662-6264.
Big Bird plays a golden fowl who gets lost wan-
dering away from Sesame Street. Includes a clever
scene where Big Bird finds himself (herself?) in
the same precarious field that Cary Grant en-
countered in North-by-Northwest. Cameos by
Snuful-Upagus. From the Children's television
Workshop. At the Movies At Briarwood, Briarwood
Mall, 769-8780.

Vampire movie with brains and scares. Starring
Chris Saradon and Roddy McDowell. At the Movies
at Briarwood, Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
Bill Murray, Dan Akroyd, and Harold Ramis
team up to make New York City safe from noxious,
slime-emitting ghosts. Murray's one-liners and
furtive glances save this otherwise dull film.
"Back off, man. I'm a scientist." At the Wayside,
3020 Washtenaw, 434-1782.
A marvelously imaginative comedy about an
African bushman who mistakes a Coke bottle that
falls from an airplane for a dropped trinket of the
gods and decides to return it. The laughs are pure
slapstick, but ingenious and relentless. A cult
classic and deservedly so. Now approaching its fir-
st year of running. At the Movies at Briarwood,
Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
William Hurt supplies the emotional power. This
film adaptation is faithful to the dialogue of
Manuel Puig's book, but lacks some of its heart.
Recommended nonetheless. At the Ann Arbor
Theatre, 210 S. Fifth, 761-9700.
The cleanest and best comedy of the summer
adventures into fall with good ol' Pee Wee trying to
recover his stolen bike. Sound childish? Farcical?
Trucker ghosts and a sunrise from the tiger-
striped tongue of a huge neon dinosaur in a truck
stop provide only a few of the truly bent scene from
this "innocent" comedy. At the Ann Arbor
Theatre, 210 S. Fifth, 761-9700.
Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner play hired

killers who meet and fall in love, then discover
they are on each other's hit list. A perplexing black
comedy from John Huston. At the State Theatre,
231S. State, 662-6264.
Big budget return of the western by Lawrence
Kasdan (The Big Chill). Kasdan manages to juggle
a handful of characters with highly entertaining
results. At the Fox Village Theatre, 375 N. Maple,
Seven young friends share their fantasies at a
D.C. bar. Call it The Little Chill. Stars Rob Lowe,
Ally Sheedy, Judd Nelson. At the lIovies in Briar-
wood, Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
Teen comedy starring Michael Fox (Back to the
Future). At the State Theatre, 231 S. State, 662-
Tom Hanks and John Candy star in this comedy
about idealism and life in the Peace Corps.
Idealism and life? Well, okay, the commentary is
as subtle as it is farcical, but the movie combines
the best of all worlds into a slapstick adventure.
The approach is as innovative as it is funny. At the
Fox Village Theater, 375 N. Maple, 769-1300.
At the Fox Village Theatre, 375 N. Maple, 769-
Lush photography but not much sense in this film
about a tough New York cop. Directed by Michael
