FILMS HOLDING:
AN AMEmCAN TAIL 2: FIEvEL GOES WEST It ain't no Beauty. Wouldn't it be
sad if this was the last thing Jimmy Stewart ever did? At Fox Village: starting
tomorrow at 5.
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST The greatest love story ever has racked in 100 million
big ones for those money whores at Disney. At Briarwood: 10, 11:45, 1:30, 3:15, 5,
7, 8:45; at Showcase: today only at 12, 1:40, 3:25, 5:05, 7, and starting tomorrow
at 12:10, 1:55, 3:40, 5:20, 7:10.
BUGSY 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: today only
at 12:15, 4:50, 9:40; at Showcase! 12:45, 4:25, 7:25, 10:05, 12:30.
CAPE FEAR What a god Martin Scorsese is ... he takes a cheap '60s thriller and
makes it the shocker of the year. At Showcase: today only at 12:25, 4:55, 7:30 and
, starting tomorrow (Fri/Sat only) at 9:30, 12:10.
CURLY SUE Here's a brain teaser: Which '91 John Hughes bomb blew the worst -
Y;Career Opportunities, Only the Lonely, Dutch, or this attempt to cash in on the
fluke success of Home Alone? At Fox Village: starting tomorrow at 4:45, 7, 9:10.
DECEIVED Goldie Hawn plus John Heard equals another Disney bomb. At Fox
Village: starting tomorrow at 4:55, 7:30, 9:40.
FATHER OF THE BRIDE Steve Martin's just so pisse4L because his daughter's
getting married. The most Oedipal fun for your buck since Hamlet. At Showcase:
12:30, 2:45, 5:10, 7:40, 9:50, 11:50.
FRANKIE & JOHNNY One of the best films of '91? That's what those fucking
Roger Ebert wannabe Daily film staffers said, so it's gotta be true. At Fox Village:
starting tomorrow at 4:50, 7:20, 9:50.
FREEJACK Emilio Estevez is projected into the year 2009 and pursued by evil

Showcase: 12:20, 2:35, 4:45, 7:30, 9:45, 11:55.
FRIED GREEN TOMATOES Four Southern women git togetha fer sum down-home

7:20, 9:50, 12:20.
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 RoCKs THE CRADLE Good news for you budding screen-
writers - this cheesy thriller's script was only produced because it was written by a
producer's wife. At Briarwood: 10, 12:10, 2:30, 4:45, 7:30, 9:50, 11:55; 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, 9:30, 11:50; 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, 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, 10:45; at Showcase:
12, 3:30, 7:20, 10:45 (Fri/Sat only).
JUICE 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? At Showcase: 12:55, 3, 5, 7:30, 9:40, 12.
KUFFS 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 Briarwood: 10:15, 2:25, 7:30; at Showcase: 12:15, 2:20, 4:40, 7:35, 9:40, 12:05.
THE LAST Boy SCoul Bruce Willis and Damon Wayan. This buddy movie thing
has gone way too far. At Showcase: today only at 2:50, 10:05, 12:20.
LITTLE MAN TATE Jodie Foster's heartstring-yankin' debut, about a boy genius
who has lots of deep thoughts. At Fox Village: today only at 5, 7, 9:30.
LOVE CRIMES Psychotic Catwoman Sean Young stars as a prosecuting attorney
going after sleazy sex criminal Patrick Bergin. Directed by Lizzie Borden. At
Showcase: 12:40, 3:05, 5:15, 7:45, 9:35, 11:45.
NAKED LUNCH Big Bill Burroughs on the Big Screen? Only splat-master David
Cronenberg could even come close to doing the trick, and yes, the talking asshole
scene was included (along with a generous dose of Mugwump jism). At the Ann
Arbor I & 2: 12:15, 2:30, 4:55, 7:05, 9:30.
OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY Danny DeVito goes out on a limb in his latest role as a
short, greedy, repulsive bastard. At Fox Village: starting tomorrow at 7:10, 9:30.
> THE PRINCE OF TIDES Barbra Streisand's latest directorial effort, an adaptation of
the Pat Conroy novel. We're sure everybody who's read the novel will just love her
adaptation. But can that Nick Nolte act! At the Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 11:50, 2:15, 4:45,
7:20,9:50; at Showcase: 12:50, 4:15, 7:10, 9:55, 12:20.
STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY Have you noticed that only the
even-numbered Star Trek movies are any good? At Fox Village: today only at 4:45,
7:15, 9:45.
