like they should sound like Black

ten and cynical singalong classics
that in 20 years people at record fairs
will be paying out big loot for. The
group shows that it can harmonize
like John, Paul, George and Ringo,
on "Rue The Day" which sounds
uncannily like something from A
Hard Day's Night.
The guys sing without American
accents, which is nice to see in a
beat group. Their kind of rock 'n'
roll traditionalism is OK by me be-
cause it's economical and lacks pre-
tentious pomposity. The Wonder
Stuff's musical philosophy is suc-
cinctly put by their lead vocalist: "If
you can't sing along with it, it's a
load of bollocks."
Jane Fonda's Complete Work-
My body disgusts me. I'm flaccid
in all the wrong places. I know I
don't look nice; that's why no one
ever falls in love with me. My best
friend told me that her marriage was
going downhill before. Her husband
only made love to her once a month,
and that's if she was lucky! Now
she's deliriously happy; their sex
life's great! And all because of Jane.
Jane is a beautiful and truly
American woman. She's lost most
of those weird ideas she had back in
the '60s. Anyways, we were all a
little silly back then. Her American
dream has come true and now she
can make ours become reality, too. I
went out and bought her new record
the other day and it's definitely her
best. It has a neat poster booklet
with it, too. She's hired this great
band which makes all this really
groovy music with a good beat so
that we can do the tough exercises
and have fun dancing too.
Jane's got this wonderful com-
manding voice which makes me feel
so good and energizes me so I can
get through the exercises. My fa-
vorite one is "Lower Body
Stretches." After these I feel so tired
that they must have done me some
good. The most demanding song on
the album is "Buttocks, Extensions,
Abductors/Adductors" which is more
than seven minutes long. So far I
can only get through three minutes
of it, but, you know what they say:
practice makes perfect.
With Jane's first record I lost 27
pounds, and I know that this one
will mean better sculpting and firm-
ing. I don't want to be lonely any
more. I'm already starting to feel
better about myself. Next week I'm
getting the video.
Don Johnson, pending surgery to remove the gun that has been
stuck to his hand for the past few years, takes a shot at various and
sundry baddies in Dead Bang.
badly in Dead Bang
BY TONY SILBER
When Don Johnson was born, the doctor looked up into his mother's
eyes and said, "Mrs. Johnson, you have given birth to a bad-ass cop." Af-
ter years of bad-assing down on Miami Beach, Johnson has come to-L.A.
to wage his own kind of cop-war on a group of less than polite nazis in
For those real Don fans out there, the six of you won't be disappointed.
But for the rest of us filmgoers, this is just a typical D.J. exhibition of
machismo. The picture has the usual assortment of gun fights and slick
stunts - all the usual things we have come to expect from Sonny Crock-
ett, but you'd think with the scope only a motion picture can provide,
there would be more here to rave about. No such luck.
Dead Bang is long episode of Miami Vice minus the glamour of co-
caine parties and Ferrari car chases. D.J. plays Jerry Beck, an L.A. police
detective investigating the murder of one of his fellow officers. His trail to
the killer leads him to skirmishes with some Hell's Angels, nazi skin-
heads, and other assorted white supremacist fascists. What more could you
ask for from Don? Not much. Just some bland bad-assing.
Director John Frankenheimer, who gave us the now cult classic The
Manchurian Canidate, is back in circulation, but he gives us nothing to be
puzzled or beguiled over as he did so well in that film. The only surprise
he includes here is the identity of the killer, a surprise which is never jus-
tified to the audience. So what? As long as Don pumps a few slugs into
the guy's aorta, who cares about trite things like story development?
The supporting cast in Dead Bang may as well have been dead them-
selves. They did nothing except get Don out of his tough-guy mold in
several uncomfortable dramatic and romantic scenes, the equivalent of
casting Sylvester Stallone as a florist. Don is a bad-ass, plain and simple,
and when the story detours him from this trademarked personality, every-
thing else suffers.
Dead Bang is what the action-adventure genre has unfortunately
evolved into. Antagonists are portrayed as bigoted, merciless swine to a
large extent, not as ordinary people. As a result, the hero is not much of a
hero when he wastes the antagonists. Die Hard was a pleasant exception
to this. Bruce Willis still played the bad-ass, but the bad guys were pre-
sented as real people: intelligent, calculating, and unmistakably evil. But
Dead Bang, and most other films like it, fail to make the bad guys entic-
ing or exciting.
So when the clouds start filling the sky on a lazy Saturday, the NCAA
Tournament is over, and you feel like going to the movies, pass up Dead
Bang and see a real gem like The Rescuers. The good guys will still win
and you won't have to worry about any bad-asses ruining your day.
DEAD BANG is now showing at Showcase Theaters in Ann Arbor.
