and the Wayside, 3020 Washtenaw, 434-1782.
Action and off-the-wall humor mix as a young

A marvelously imaginative comedy about an
African bushman who mistakes a Coke bottle that
falls from an airplane for a dropped trinket of the

classic and deservedly so. Now approaching its fir-
st year of running. At the Movies at Briarwood,
Briarwood Mall, 769-8780.
