T H U R S D A Y T H U R S D A Y

Ernest Dickerson (right) directs Omar Epps in his new film, Juice.
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: 10:15, 12:15, 4:30, 9; at
Showcase: today only at 1:30,3:25, 5:20, 7:35, 9:40.
AN AMERICAN TAIL 2 The latest animated feature from Spielberg's Disney
wanna-be department is no Beauty, but it's diverting nonetheless. At Showcase:
Saturday and Sunday only, at High Noon.
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. At Briarwood: 10, 11:45, 1:30, 3:15, 5,
r 7 (tonight only at 8:45); at Showcase: 12, 1:40, 3:25, 5:05, 7.

Fox Village: only $1.50, starting tomorrow at 12, 2:15, 5, 7:15, 9:30.
BucsY Don't panic: Warren Beatty's still a dick, but his latest gangster flick is no

CAPE FEAR Martin Scorsese's thriller, with the powerhouse 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 12:15,
2:40, 5:05, 7:45, 10:15 and starting tomorrow at 2, 10:15, 12:35.

3:45, 7:15, 10, 12:30.
THE HAND THAT ROCKS 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: 12, 2:15, 5, 7:15, 9:45; 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, 1, 4, 7, 9:40, 12:05; at Showcase: 1, 4:30, 7:15, 9:50, 12;15.

er, Stone, and a serious contender for the Best Supporting Cast of the Decade,

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: tonight only at 10,

7:20 (Fri/Sat only), 7:30 (Sun-Thur), 10:45 (Fri/Sat only).

of Fried Green Tomatoes at 8 replaces this showing Saturday night), 10:10, 12:20.

buddy movie thing has gone way too far. At Fox Village tonight only at 5, 7, 9:30;
at Showcase: 12:20, 2:40, 4:55, 7:30, 9:50, 12:05.

STAR TREK VI: THE UNDISCOVERED COUNTRY The elderly crew is back for
what is probably their final mission. Yeah, you'd probably wear Spock ears before
you'd admit to being a Trekkie, but this is insightful entertainment. At Briarwood:
today only at 10, 12:10, 2:25, 4:40, 7, 9:15 and starting tomorrow at 10:15, 2:45,
7:30; at Showcase: today only at 12:10, 2:30, 4:40, 7:25, 9:45.
