American family's struggle to stay together. At Showcase: 12, 2:05, 4:15,
8:25, 10:25, 12:20.
MATINEE John Goodman stars as a movie producer who changes four
teenagers' lives during the Cuban Missile Crisis. How intriguing. Directed

9:45, 11:45.
SNmPER Tom Berenger ("Platoon') tries to become the new

Showcase: 1:05, 3:15, 5:25, 7:40, 9:55, 12.

Did we really need a sequel to "Children of the Corn?"
FILMS HOLDING:

ALADDIN It's probably the best movie of the Christmas season - it's an
animated feature, not a cartoon, damnit! Robin Williams will never find a
better role (at least it's not in "Toys.") At Briarwood: 10:05, 12, 2:10, 4:15,
7, 9, 11:15. At Showcase: 12:35, 2:40, 4:45, 7, 9, 11.
AuvE Disney goes cannibal in this inspiring tale about some schmucks
who have to eat each other to survive - all handled quite tastefully, we
hear. We hope Ethan Hawke's the one who gets eaten. At Showcase: 1:35,
4:20, 7:25, 10:10, 12:30.
ASPEN EXTREME "Top Gun" meets "Cocktail" in Colorado. But hey, it
mentions Detroit, so can't be all bad. With no stars, just talent. At
Briarwood: 10:15, 12:30, 2:45, 5:05, 7:30, 10, 12:10. At Showcase: 1:45,
4:20, 7:35, 10:05, 12:25.
THE BODYGUARD The public has decided to chuck the critics and make
this one of the biggest hits of the holiday season. But you're smarter than
that, aren't you? Trust us, it's really is awful. Scripted by Larry "never had
it, never will" Kasdan. At Briarwood: 7:15, 9:45, 12:05. At Showcase:
4:20,9:25.
BODY OF EviDENCE Madonna stars as Sharon Stone, with Willem Dafoe
as Michael Douglas in this almost-NC-17 pseudo-smoker. So bad it's
almost good ... no, it's still bad. At Briarwood: 2:45, 4:50, 7:25, 9:30,
11:30. At Showcase: 12, 6:30, 10:20, 12:15.
DAMAGE Only, and we do mean only, director Louis Malle could make a
good movie out of such a mediocre tale o' obsession. With fine perfor-
mances from Jeremy Irons and Miranda Richardson. At Showcase: 12:30,
2:55, 5:20, 7:50, 10:20, 12:30.
A FEw GOOD MEN Rob Reiner's latest lowest common denominator
blockbuster manages a Few Good Scenes with Jack, but little more. But,
boy, oh boy, that Tom Cruise really is irresistible. At Briarwood: 10, 12:45,
3:45, 7, 9:40, 12:05. At Showcase: 12:50, 3:50, 7:05, 10, 12:35.
FOREVER YOUNG This remake of "Always" stars Mel Gibson and his butt.
People who like this sort of shit will find this the sort of shit they like. At
Showcase: 2:10, 7:05.
HEXED A comedy-thriller? Poor Adrienne Shelley ("The Unbelievable
Truth") must really need the money. At Showcase: at high noon only.
HOME ALONE 2: LOST iw NEW YORK Even folks who were suckers for
Macaulay in the first one can't stand the remake, er, sequel. At Briarwood:
10:10, 12:30.
HOWARDS END Somebody told us that this flick ain't so bad. At State: 2,
4:30,9:45; 2 p.m. Sunday only.
THE LAST OF TIE MomcAws Daniel Day-Lewis as the next action hero?
Well, he's better looking than Arnie. At State: 7 p.m. only.
Lo RENzo's 0& Though this miracle cure movie has the potential to be
another "Awakenings," thanks to director George Miller ("Mad Max"), it
lays off the sentimental crap. The great Nick Nolte tries an Italian accent;
also with Susan Sarandon. At Showcase: 1:50, 5, 7:45, 12:15.
TIE LovER The latest from director Jean-Jacques Annaud ("Quest for
Fire," "The Bear") is an adaptation of a Marguerite Duras novel. This is
one of those French sex movies you've always heard about. At Ann Arbor
1 & 2: 12:30, 2:35, 4:45, 7:05, 9:20
NowERE TO RUN We do not like him, Sam I Am. We do not like Jean-
Claude Van Damme. At Briarwood: 10:15, 12:15, 2:20, 4:30, 7:45, 9:50,
11:45. At Showcase: 12:35, 2:45, 4:55, 7:30, 9:40, 11:40.

Kenneth Branagh take off his shirt! What else do you want? Also with
1993 Academy Award winner Emma Thompson. At Ann Arbor 1 & 2:
12:45, 2:50, 5, 7:20, 9:40.
TIE PLAYER It's on 210 Ten Best of 1992 lists, so it must be good -
even though you won't get all the jokes. Watch for Dean Stockwell and
Richard E. Grant in Oscar-caliber performances. At State: 2, 4:30, 7, 9:30,
11:45 (11:45 Fri & Sat only; 2 p.m. Sat & Sun only).
SCEmT OF A WOMAN The Golden Globe winner for the best picture of
1992. We smell a rat. At Briarwood: 10, 1, 4, 7:15, 10:15. At Showcase:
Fri/Sat/Sun at 12:30, 3:45, 7:10, 10:15; Mon-Thu at 2, 5 and 8.
