FILMS HOLDING:
THE ADDAms FAMiLY It's the first smash hit of the Christmas season - and it's
also depressingly unfunny. Just say no. At Briarwood: today only at 10:15, 12:15,
4:30, 9; at Fox Village: starting tomorrow at 5, 7, 9:30.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST Disney would like to pass off their latest as a Best
Picture nominee, and they're not that far off. First-rate songs, story and animation
put this one up there with Cruella de Ville. And it's the most profitable animated
film of all time. At Briarwood: 10, 11:45, 1:30, 3:15, 5, 7, 8:45; at Showcase: 12,
1:40, 3:25, 5:05, 7.
BLACK ROBE Dances With Wolves minus the excessive PC-ness and Kevin
Costner's butt. At Fox Village: today only at 5, 7:15, 9:30.
BUcsY Don't panic: Warren Beatty might be a dick, but his latest gangster flick is
no Dick Tracy II. Director Barry Levinson's still got it, and the film also features
great performances from Judas, Gandhi and Elliot Gould. At Briarwood: 12:15,
4:50, 9:40; at Showcase: 12:45, 4:50, 7:25, 10:05, 12:30.
CAPE FEAR Great American director Martin Scorsese's thriller, with the power-
house cast of DeNiro, Nolte and Lange. If you ask us, it's mediocre... no, on second
thought, it's brilliant.., no, wait, it sucks... ah, go and decide for yourself. At
Showcase: today only at 2, 10:15, and starting tomorrow at 12:25, 4:55, 7:30.
FATHER OF THE BRIDE Schmaltzy but hilarious remake of Minnelli's classic. With
Steve Martin. At the Ann Arbor 1 & 2: today only at 4:55, 7:05, 9:25; at Showcase:
12:30, 2:45, 5:10, 7:40, 10, 12:25.

only at 4:45, 7:20, 9:50.
FREEJACK Emilio Estevez is projected into the year 2009 and pursued by evil
bounty hunter Mick Jagger. Scary stuff. Co-stars Best Actor Anthony Hopkins. At
Briarwood: 10:15, 12:20, 2:30,4:45, 7:15, 9:30, 11:30; at Showcase: 12:20, 2:35, 5,
S:25, 9:45, 11:55.
GRAND CANYON When ambition falls short, the result is a pretentious dog. Starring
a bearded Steve Martin. At Briarwood: 10, 1, 4, 7, 9:40, 12; at Showcase: 1:05,
3:45, 7:15, 10, 12:30.
THE HAND THAT RoCss THE CRADLE Wayne State grad Ernie Hudson (yes, the
Black Ghostbuster) stars with Rebecca DeMornay in a cheesy USC film school
script about an evil nanny. Two years after being founded, Hollywood Pictures still
hasn't made a good film. At Fox Village: today only at 12, 2:15, 5, 7:15, 9:45; at
Briarwood: starting tomorrow at 10, 12:10, 2:30, 4:45, 7:30, 9:45, 11:50; at
* Showcase: 12:35, 2:55, 5:05, 7:35, 9:55, 12:10.
Hook Even Dustin and Robby can't overcome the lousy sets and weak plot of this
lame fantasy from the director of The Goonies. What a drag it is gettin' old... At
Briarwood: 10:15, 1, 4, 7, 9:40, 12; at Showcase: 1, 4:30, 7:15, 9:45, 12:15.
JFK More subversive liberal propaganda from that commie bastard Oliver Snow,
er, Stone, and a serious contender for the Best Supporting Cast of the Decade,
featuring Gary Oldman, Donald Sutherland, Walter Matthau, Joe Pesci, John
Candy, Tommy Lee Jones, Kevin Bacon and Big Ed Asner (who pistol whips poor
Jack Lemmon in the first ten minutes of the film). At Briarwood: 12, 3:35, 7:15,
1r:45; at Showcase: 12, 3:30, 7:20, 10:45 (Fri/Sat only).
JUCE Spike Lee's acclaimed cinematographer Ernest Dickerson does the trite thing
in his directorial debut, a cliched coming of age story set in Harlem with lots of
cool DJ scenes. Boyz N the Hood 2: Electric Boogaloo? See for yourself (just bring
Scan of Mace). At Showcase: 1, 3, 5, 7:30, 9:40, 12.
KWFS Christian Slater is a loose cannon forced to grow up when he inherits a
private police force. Ooomph! Oscar sez, "Lock me up and throw away the key!"

at 10:15, 2:45, 7:30; at Showcase: 12:10, 2:30, 4:45, 7:35, 10:10, 12:15.
THE LAST Bon ScouT Bruce Willis and Damon Wayans, together at last. This
buddy movie thing has gone way too far, but good for some brainless thrills. At
Showcase: today only at 12:20, 2:40, 4:55, 7:30, 9:50, 12:05, and starting tomorrow
at 2:50, 10:05, 12:20.

M Gm. Macaulay buys it! We've got sunshine! What more do you want for your
entertainment dollar? At Showcase: today only at 12, 4:30, 7:20.
THE PamicE OF TIDES Barbra Streisand's latest directorial effort, an adaptation of
tie Pat Conroy novel. We're sure everybody who's read the novel will love her
adaptation. But we think it's pretty cool. And can that Nick Nolte act! At the Ann
Arbor 1 & 2: 11:50, 2:15, 4:45, 7:20, 9:50; at Showcase: 12:05, 4:15, 7:10, 9:55,
