Steve Guttenberg takes a ten -
tative step towards seriousness

Supposedly lots of good plot twists.
At the State Theater.
When a beautiful woman's
husbands get offed at an unnatural
rate, Debrah Winger begins to
suspect that this is one femme who's
quite literally fatale. A taunt thriller.
At the Movies at Briarwood.
A LESSER GOD
William Hurt is a teacher for the
deaf who falls in love with a hearing-
impaired girl in this technically
perfect adaptation of the Broadway
play. At the Movies At Briarwood.
An Australian adventurer tries to
make it on the mean streets of New

smart, independant female who is -
what else? - a journalist. At the
Movies At Briarwood.
DEAD OF WINTER
Mary Steenburgen is a hopeful
actress who signs on to play a most
unusual part, but she gets more than
she bargained for when the script
calls for... murder!!! With Roddy
McDowell. At the State Theater.
FROM THE HIP
Judd Nelson plays an amoral
young lawyer who gets a partnership
by fixing a case, and then gets
handed an unwinnable murder trial.
Screwball comedy from the director
of Porky's. At the State Theater.

investigator who must journey to
Tibet and face down evil monsters
when he discovers he's the only one
who can fulfill an ancient, mystical
legacy. At the Movies At Briarwood.
HANNAH AND HER
Woody Allen's superb comedy!
drama about three sisters and the men
in their lives. Definitely kicks butt
over Radio Days. At the State
LIGHT OF DAY
- Michael J. Fox and Joan Jett are
siblings whose only escape from
blue-collar hell is rock and roll. At
the Fox Village Theater.
So-so musical comedy about a
meek flower shop handyman who
finds a way to fame and fortune when
a man-eating plant becomes his
ticket to ride. Bill Murray, Steve
Martin, James Belushi. At theAnn
ArborTheaters 1 & 2.
Andrew McCarthy is a lonely
window-dresser who falls in love
with a dummy. Through the magic
of Hollywood, she comes to life
(but only for him), and mass
zaniness is the result. At the State
It doesn't have Bill Murray, or
even Pee Wee Herman, but the third
installment of the Meatball trilogy is
sure to be plenty nutty. At the State
THE MOSQUITO COAST
Harrison Ford is a scary
individualist who takes his family to
a deserted coast, away from the
trappings of civilization. Trouble is,
he starts to go a bit wacky, and
pretty soon no one is safe. At the
Movies At Briarwood.
Bette Midler and Shelley Long
are an unlikely duo who team up to
find the man who was cheating on
both of them, and get caught up in a
plot of damn-near apocolyptic
proportions. Peter Coyote and
George Carlin round out this
screwball comedy. At the Fox
OVER THE TOP
This time, Sly Stallone is an
underdog in an arm wrestling
tournament, fighting to keep his
pride and his son. At the Movies At
Oliver Stone's explosive,
gripping Vietnam action epic is
every bit as good as you've heard it
is. An idealistic young man finds his
illusions shattered when he
volunteers for duty in the 'Nam. At
the Movies At Briarwood.
Woody Allen's latest is a
biteless, disjointed reverie about his
childhood in the Bronx right around
WWII. A fantastic cast barely stands
a chance. At the Movies At
Jazz legend Dexter Gordon pretty
much plays himself in this tale of
ex-patriate musicians in France. At
the Ann Arbor Theaters 1 & 2.
