First Run Film
Crazy People
Dudley Moore, who has turned out
hit after comedic hit, stars with
Daryl Hannah as an ad exec who's
just gone completely wacko! He
makes up funny ad campaigns and
falls in love with Daryl at the same
time because she's a little crazy,
too. Isn't love crazy itself,
sometimes? (At Showcase -12:45,
2:50, 5:05, 7:25, 9:35, 11:30)
John Waters' first film without the
lovely Divine has Johnny Depp (21
Jump Stret) as a greasy tough guy
who falls for a rich "good" girl with
raging hormones. The cast of this
musical-comedy set in the '50s
includes Ann Arbor's own Iggy Pop
and ex-porn queen Tracy Lords.
(At Fox Village - 7:15, 9:15, 11:30;
Showcase - 12:10, 2:40, 4:40, 7:40,
9:30, 11:35)
Driving Miss Daisy
Elderly Southern woman Jessica
Tandy and chauffeur Morgan
Freeman break down some social
barriers. Adapted from Alfred
Uhry's Pulitzer Prize-winning play,
performed in Ann Arbor last
semester. Strange casting award
goes to Dan Ackroyd as Miss,
Daisy's son Boolie, who can't seem
to pick good films consistently to
save his life. (At Showcase -
12:05, 2:20, 4:25, 7:35, 9:30, 1:35)
Ernest Goes to Jail
Hey. Hey Ven. I got me a new
movie. It's hot, Vern, know what I
mean? I'm in jail, and I lift weights
with big men, and I bump my head
on things, and I make goofy faces
at the guards, and I fight with the
mean prisoner, and it's really
funny, Ven - really funny, know
what I mean? You gonna see it, huh
huh, you gonna see it? It's really
funny, you gonna see it? Hey Vern,
why are you pointing that shotgun
at me? Wait, it's really funny Vern.
Don't pull that trigger, Vern, don't
pull that... (At Showcase - 12:35,
3:10, 5:10, 7:30, 9:25, 11:30)
The First Power
In a copy of the horror film Shocker,
Lou Diamond Phillips plays a cop
hunting the spirit of an executed
killer. SaysMr. Young Gun, "this
character will be something
different than anything people
have seen me do on screen yet."
What, no la bamba? How about a
lambada? Please? (At Fox Village
- 7:15, 9:15, 11:30; Showcase -
12:50, 3:00, 5:15, 7:30, 9:40, 11:55)
The Gods Must Be Crazy II
More slapstick racist humor by a
South African. If you liked the first
one you'll like this one. (At
Showcase - 12:20, 2:25, 4:35, 7:15,
9:20, 12:00)
House Party
Hip-hoppin' partying that was the

rage at the recent Sundance
Festival. With Kid'n'Play and Full
Force, this high energy comedy is
about one teenager's attempt to
dupe his parents and the police so
he can get to the hottest party of
the year. (At Showcase - 3:05,
9:50, 11:45)
The Hunt for Red October
Sean Connery, a Soviet captain,
hijacks his own submarine and
heads for the U.S. with the whole
world in pursuit. Problem is, the
sub has a new stealth device which
makes it impossible to track (if the
film is like Tom Clancy's novel,
they could always use a bad-
dialogue-seeking device). (At
Briarwood - 11:00, 12:40, 1:40,
3:20, 4:15, 6:00, 7:00, 8:45, 9:35,
11:30; Showcase - 1:15, 4:00, 7:10,
9:50, 12:20)
I Love You to Death
Tracey Ullman hires novice hit
men to do away with her
philandering husband (Kevin
Kline) in this comedy by UM alum
Lawrence Kasdan. Cast includes
River Phoenix, Bill & Ted's Keanu
Reeves, and fellow Big Chiller
William Hurt. (At Briarwood -
11:45, 2:00, 4:00, 7:00, 9:00, 11:30;
Showcase - 12:25, 2:55, 4:55, 7:20,
9:25, 11:40)
Theresa Russell is a narcotics cop
who becomes entangled in a big
narcotics case while undercover as
a prostitute. Should she become a
high class hooker for real? Should
she keep the drug money she's
found? Should she fall in love with
the D.A.? Well, when I was in this
situation... (At Briarwood - 12:15,
2:30, 4:45, 7:15, 9:30, 11:40)
Joe Versus the Volcano
Tom Hanks learns that he doesn't
have long to live so decides he may
as well jump into a volcano. Meg
Ryan has three different roles but
neither continues hertutorial on
how to fake sex. (At Briarwood -
12:00, 2:15, 4:30, 7:15, 9:30,
The Little Mermaid
Disney's best cartoon in over a
decade, this fun film is a must for
those with a little bit of the kid in
you. ( Briarwood - 11:30, 1:15,
3:00, 4:45)
Love At Large
Tom Berenger and Elizabeth
Perkins are private detectives who
fall in love while investigating
Anne Archer's philandering
husband. A comedy about love and
something that is large. (At
Briarwood - 7:30, 9:40)
Miami Blues
Newly acclaimed sex-symbol Alec
Baldwin is an ex-con just out of
prison who steals cop Fred Ward's
gun, badge and dentures; he then
becomes crook by day, cop by

night, occasionally holding-up
those he helps. This comedy
explores that fine line between
cops and criminals, delves into that
small difference between good and
evil, masticates the subtle disparity
between meat and tofu. (At Fox
Village - 7:00, 9:15, 11:30;
Showcase - 12:30, 2:30, 4:50, 7:25,
9:35, 11:50)
My Left Foot
Daniel-Day Lewis plays a man
with cerebral palsy who expresses
his creativity and his character
through his left foot. Not the
downer movie you might think;
won two Oscars. (At Showcase -
12:40,5:15, 7:40; Ann Arbor -
call for times)
Nuns on the Run
Not to be confused with Nuns With
the Runs, this more respectable
comedy stars Monty Python's Eric
Idle as one of two crooks who steals
millions from the mob and hides
out in a convent disguised as nuns.
Do you think it'll have a shower
scene and have them sharing a bed
with female nuns? (At Briarwood
- 12:15, 2:30, 4:30, 7:00, 9:15,
Opportunity Knocks
Dana Carvey (NL's Church Lady)
is a con man who masquerades as
an Ivy League snob among the
snobs of Chicago. Isn't that special?
(Showcase - 3:10, 9:40, 11:40)
Obviously this film has been
underexposed as far as promotion
goes because I have heard
absolutely nothing about this film.
(At Showcase -12:35, 22:25, 5:00,
7:45, 9:45, 12:10)
Pretty Woman
Romantic comedy where Richard
Gere is a powerful business mogul
who eats up companies for profit;
Julia Roberts is a Hollywood
hooker who eats up customers for
profit. He hires her for a week and
falls in love when she cries at the
opera; she falls in love with him
when he takes her shopping on
Rodeo Drive. Isn't love always like
that? (At Showcase - 12:15, 2:30,
4:45, 7:20, 9:45, 12:15; Ann Arbor
1&2 - call for times)
Rocky Horror Picture Show
If you're a man, wear only women's
lingerie and go see this show; if
you're a woman, wear only
women's lingerie and go see this
show. (At Briarwood - 11:30)
Teenage Mutant Ninja
You've read the comic book, you've
seen the cartoon, you've played the
video, you've bought the dolls,
you've used the condoms, now see
the movie. And Kowabunga! it has
real actors. Pass the pizza, dude.
(At Showcase -call for times, if
you really must; Fox Village -
7:00, 9:30, 11:30L

Lady Chatterly's Lover
(Marc Allegret, 1955)
Like the D.H. Lawrence novel it
was taken from, Lady Chatterly's
Lover was censored upon its
release. Censors charged that the
movie presents adultery as
desirable and proper behavior.
Tame by today's standards, it tells
the story of a young English
noblewoman who has her
husband's tactit approaval of her
affairs. French with subtitles.
Swann in Love
(Volker Schlondorff, 1984)
Jeremy Irons plays Charles Swann,
a wealthy cosmopolitan with ties to
the aristocracy, whose passionate
affair with Odette de Crecy, a
beautiful woman of dubious
provenance, provokes in him an
obsessive jealousy that threatens
not only his sanity, but his social
standing as well. Adapted from the
novel by Marcel Proust, Swann is a
beautifully evocative portrait of
Parisian high society in the years
leading up to the turn of the
century, as well as an unusual love
(Woody Allen, 1973)
MLB4 7pm & 10:30/DBL Med
Woody plays a neurotic (what,
Woody neurotic?) but meek health-
food store proprietor who goes to
the hospital for an operation and
wakes up in 2173 to a world where
he is capable of winning a Miss
America contest, criminals are
forced to watch Howard Cosell re-
runs, and a peculiar little ball has
replaced the joint as drug conduit
of choice. Let's give this one a 10
on the humor scale. A Looney
Tunes cartoon precedes the movie.
Annie Hall
(Woody Allen, 1977)
MLB4 8:45/DBL Med
Shall we reverse the criticism, and
call this movie WhenAkiy Met Annie?
Annie Hall follows the (neurotic)
Alvy Singer (Allen) through his
relationship with Annie (Diane
Keaton). Alvy still can't quite get
the hang of romance after a
marriage to Carol Kane, one of his
real life wives, and a petit fling
with teenager Mariel Hemingway.
Classic scenes included, free of
charge, like the lobster scene in the
kitchen, and Alvy's aversion to
authority in the form of a mutilated
driver's license. Lots of good
California-bashing, too. A Looney
Tunes cartoon precedes the movie.
Twilight of the Cockroaches
(Hiroaki Yoshida, 1987)
AudA 7:30 & 9:30 AAFC

In this innovative satire, Yoshida
crafts an allegorical tale stemming
from his fear that Japan will have
the popularity of cockroaches if it
continues to aggravate other
countries with selfish trade
practices. A clever combination of
live action and animation, the film
is shot from the point of view of
roached living in a comfortable
Japanese home. A Midwest
(Tim Burton, 1988)
MLB4 7pm, 8:40 & 10:20 CG
Michael Keaton, AKA that Bat-guy
in the black leotards, hams it up as
the ghost Betelgeuse. The ghost
helps a newly-dead couple adjust
to the afterlife, and to the irritating
family who's just moved into their
home. With Geena Davis and
Winona Ryder. Amazing special
effects make Beetlejuice a kind of
live-action cartoon.
Jean de Florette
(Claude Berri, 1986)
MLB3 7:15/DBL Med
A cocky French farmer schemes
with his simpleton nephew to
acquire some farmland by making
sure the new owners never discover
an all-important natural spring on
the property. Exquisitely filmed,
very powerful. A Looney Tunes
cartoon precedes the movie.
Manon of the Spring
(Claude Berri, 1986)
MLB3 9:30/DBL Med
The conclusion of Jean de Florele,
in which a lovely young
shepherdess learns the truth
behind her father's death and vows
revenge on the scheming pair of
farmers. Berri tells the story slowly,
savoring every moment leading to
the unanticipated conclusion. A
Looney Tunes cartoon precedes
the movie.
Twilight of the Cockroaches
(Hiroaki Yoshida, 1987)
Aud A 7:30 & 9:30 AAFC
See Friday's listing.
The Blues Brothers
(John Landis, 1980)
Hillel 9:15 & 11:40 HSC
Join John Belushi and Dan
Ackroyd on their "mission from
God" as the work to save the
orphanage where they were both
raised. Frankly hilarious, with
rabble-rousing music and Belushi
flip-flopping his way to the gospel
truth, and Carrie Fisher with a
Bazooka. Watch for Pee-Wee
Herman (speaking in a normal
voice) as the waiter in the
restaurant scene.
Near Death
