FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:

DR. GIGGLES This historic film (perhaps the first R-rated movie ever
named "Giggles") boasts the talents of that underrated superstar, Larry
Drake. At Briarwood: 10:05, 12, 2:15, 4:15, 7, 9, 11:30.
LIGHT SLEEPER Paul Schrader (writer of "Taxi Driver") once again
attempts to direct his own screenplay. When will he ever learn to just leave
the directing to Martin Scorsese? Starring Willem "Jesus Christ" Dafoe. At
Ann Arbor: 12:40, 2:45, 4:50, 7:10, 9:20.
NIGHT AND THE CITY We hate Robert DeNiro remakes of old movies and
Irwin Winkler's lame attempts to direct movies instead of producing them.
Remember "Guilty by Suspicion?" I thought not. At Showcase: 12:20,
2:30, 4:50, 7:20, 9:40, 11:50.
PURE COunTmY Better than an episode of "Hee-Haw," this is the motion
picture debut of country music star George Strait. Straight to video. At
Showcase: 1:35, 4:25, 7:25, 9:55, 12:15.
ZEBRAHEAD Filmed in Detroit, this movie was produced by Oliver Stone
and it's supposed to be pretty good. It's about an interracial romance,
slightly more true to life than "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" At
Showcase: 12:30, 2:45, 5, 7:35, 9:50, 12.

FILMS HOLDING:
CANDYMAN This horror flick is not only laughably bad, it's offensive. Not
the perfect choice for that nervous first date. And why did Philip Glass do
the music for this? At Briarwood: 10:15, 12:45, 2:50, 5, 7:40, 9:50, 11:50.
At Showcase: 12:40, 3, 5:20, 7:55, 10:15, 12:25.
CAPTAIN RON If you want to see a good Kurt Russell movie, rent "Used
Cars"; if you want to see a bad one, see anything since, including this one
with Martin Short. Why is this still playing? At Showcase: 12:00, 2:05.
CONSENTING ADULTS Director Alan J. Pakula ("Presumed Innocent") is
presumed incompetent with this disastrously DePalma-esque thriller. At the
Ann Arbor: 1, 3, 5, 7:25, 9:40. At Showcase: 12:50, 3:05, 5:20, 7:50,
10:05, 12:10
GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS It's got the powerhouse male cast of the decade
,(Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Ed Harris, Jonathan Pryce, and
Alan Arkin). David (Dial 'F' for "Fucking") Mamet's play is just not
meant to be a movie. Do you hear me? Do you hear me? Do you fucking
hear me? (This is what is known as "rhythmic dialogue.") At Showcase:
12:30, 2:50, 5:10, 7:40, 10:00, 12:10
HERO This attempt to "make 'em like they used to" falls flat on its face,
despite the noble efforts of Geena Davis, Dustin Hoffman and Andy
Garcia. Rent a Frank Capra film instead. At Briarwood: 10:05, 12:10, 2:30,
4:50, 7:15, 9:40, 11:50. At Showcase: 1:20, 4:10, 7:15, 9:45, 12:10.
THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS Daniel Day Lewis becomes a 18th-century
stud in this truly exciting film of Cooper's long-winded novel. Two thumbs
up, way up. At Briarwood: 10, 12:10, 2:25, 4:45, 7:10, 9:30, 11:45. At
Showcase: 1:30, 4:15, 7:10, 9:40, 12.
THE MIGHTY DUCKS Emilio Estevez continues his downward spiral since
the great "Repo Man" with this "Bad News Bears" meets "Slapshot"
schlock. At Briarwood: 10:15, 12:30, 2:30, 4:30, 7, 9, 11:30. At Showcase:
12:10, 2:30, 4:50, 7:05, 9:20, 11:30.
MR. BASEBALL Director Fred Schepisi continues his downward spiral
since the great "A Cry in the Dark" with this "Bull Durham" meets "Gung
Ho." Tom Selleck, on the other hand, has never made a good movie. At
Showcase: 12:15,4:45, 7:10.
OF MICE AND MEN Gary Sinise, founder of Chicago's Steppenwolf
-Theatre, stars and directs this highly successful Steinbeck adaptation. It's
Oscar time for John Malkovich, finally, and Sherilyn Fenn ("Twin Peaks"
the TV show, not the lame movie) is also along for the ride. At Showcase:
1:25, 4:10, 7:15, 9:45, 12:05.
THE PUBUC EYE Joe Pesci and-Barbara Hershey in afilm noir? OK, Pesci
was funny on SNL, but the premise - a snoopy photographer who snaps
dead people - sounds mighty suspicious. At Showcase: 2:35, 9:35, 11:40.
ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW At Briarwood: 12 midnight.
SINGLES The perfect choice for that nervous first date. At Showcase: 2:40,
4:50, 7:20, 10:10, 12:15.
SNEAKERS Phil Alden Robinson's follow-up to "Field of Dreams" is as
stale as J. Danforth Quayle. Robert Redford ought to stay behind the
camera. His "A River Runs Through It" is coming soon. At Briarwood: 10,
12:15, 2:35, 4:55, 7:20, 9:45. At Showcase: 12, 7:25.
UNDER SIEGE Steven Seagal ("Above the Law," "Hard to Kill") makes a
major break with the past with this two-word title. Tommy Lee Jones
delivers the line of the year: "This is not the work of a cook." We can

THE BIRTHDAY PARTY larold
