THE DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN Eddie Murphy hasn't learned his
lesson with the failure of "Boomerang," as evidenced by this, his latest
silly, unfunny attempt at comedy. Mr. Robinson goes to Washington? At
Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 11:50, 2:10, 4:35, 7:10, 9:40. At Showcase: 11:50,
12:30, 2:15, 2:55, 4:45, 5:25, 7:30, 7:55, 10, 10:20, 12:15, 12:30.
FOREVER YOUNG A preview of Mel Gibson's directorial debut. We're still
waiting for him to make his acting debut. At least the underrated Jamie Lee
Curtis is in it. The story, however, looks uncannily similar to another
Hollywood bomb named "Late for Dinner." At Showcase: 8. Saturday
only.

"The Distinguished Gentleman": Mr. Robinson goes to Washington?
FILMS HOLDING:
ALADDIN The greatest animated fihn of all time, well, at least, the funni-
est. Not boring, like "Beauty and the Beast," and even more fun than "The
Little Mermaid." Disney's planning to buy Robin Williams an Oscar
nomination for this one. At Showcase: 11:45, 12:20, 2:15, 2:45, 4:45, 5:15,
7, 7:25, 9, 9:30, 11, 11:30; at Briarwood: 10, 11, 12, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9,
10, 11:15.
THE BODYGUARD Long before he penned that pretentious dog "Grand
Canyon," University alum Larry Kasdan wrote this script. If his mature
scripts suck, just imagine what this is like. With Whitney Houston, Kevin
Costner and his laughable Harrison Ford haircut. At Briarwood: 10:15,
12:45,4,7,9:40, 12.
BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA The horror, the horror. Francis Ford
Coppola's monstrous adaptation of Stoker's classic novel is a dazzling
disaster. The buckets o' blood are cool, though. And the music (Annie
Lennox has a song) is really good. But really, rent Werner Herzog's
"Nosferatu" instead. At Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 12, 2:25, 4:50, 7:30, 10:05; at
Showcase: 1:15, 4:15, 7:10, 9:55, 12:25
HOME ALONE 2: LOST IN NEw YORK The original was the most
successful comedy of all time. Of all time. Yes, Macaulay is cute, but not
that cute. $79 million and counting. At Briarwood: 10, 11, 12:25, 1:30,
2:50, 4:15, 5:15, 7, 7:45, 9:30, 10:05, 11:50. At Showcase: 11:30, 12, 2:05,
2, 2:35, 4:35, 5:10, 7:10, 7:45, 9:50, 10:15, 12:15, 12:30..
MALCOLM X Three hours and twenty minutes of Spike Lee? You'll wish
it was longer. Not only is this movie a cultural phenomenon, it's good
(unlike a certain other overhyped horror movie we could mention).
Ooomph! Oscar sez: send the Academy Award to Denzel Washington
today! At Showcase: 12, 1, 4, 5, 8, 9.
OF MICE AND MEN Gary Sinise gives a terrific performance in this truly
moving adaptation of the Steinbeck novel. Too bad John Malkovich is in it.
At State: 2, 7, 9:15, 11:30.
PASSENGER 57 Numbers seem to be very big in movie titles lately. This
one's starring Wesley Snipes as some kind of cop in an action thriller. We
hear this was a troubled set. Why bother? Why? Why ask why? (Sorry,
quoting beer ads is so tempting.) At Briarwood: 10:15, 2:15, 7:30, 9:15,
11:15. At Showcase: 12:30, 2:35, 4:40, 7:15, 9:20, 11:20; late shows on
Saturday, 10:05, 11:55.
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT Robert Redford hits a home run with his
third directorial effort, the only recent movie (well, other than "Howards
End," "Aladdin," "Malcolm X" and "Husbands and Wives") that deserves
the oft-misused adjective, "great." At Showcase: 1:25, 4:10, 7, 9:40, 12:05;
at Briarwood: 10, 12:15, 2:35, 4:55, 7:20, 9:45, 11:55.
SNEAKERS Big budget, cool cast (Redford, Poitier, McDonnell), dynamic
director (Phil Alden Robinson). Oh well. Maybe it looks better in second-
run houses. At State: 2, 7, 9:20, 11:30.

ful man in Hollywood, Mike Ovitz, decided to make him a star. Now, he's
