Howain Boun This Disney dog-and-cat adventure movie might
have been watchable if they didn't make the animals talk. We hear the
under-six crowd loves it, however. At Showcase: 1, 3, 5.
Ma DoG mm GLouv Director John McNaughton ("Henry, Portrait of a
Serial Killer") goes Hollywood with Robert DeNiro, Uma Thurman and the
great Bill Murray. At Showcase: 12:40,2:55, 5:10, 7:35, 9:50, 11:55.
Porr of No Rartn John Badham's remake of that popular Eurotrash
film, "La Femme Nikita." Starring Bridget Fonda (yawn), Gabriel Byrne
(yawn), and acting demi-god Harvey Keitel, who steals this pointless
sequel in the first five minutes (hooray!). At Showcase: 12:30, 2:55, 5:20,
ScMT of A WomAN The Golden Globe winner for the best picture of
1992 will not win the Oscar for best picture. Even the Academy isn't that
dumb. At Showcase: Friday through Sunday at 7, 10:15; Monday through
Thursday at 8..
SwAn Kos Hip-hop German music starring the effervescent Frank
Whaley, who overwhelmingly picked Fanta over Crystal Pepsi, in a blind
taste test. German accents, English accents, and American accents. You
figure it out. At Showcase: 9:45, 12:05.
Tsscu Murmr NmuA TuwnLEs III In between "The Player" and
"Simple Men," alumni Robert Shaye's New Line Film Corporation went
whoring, turning out the third installment in the little green reptile trilogy.
Be afraid. Be very afraid. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:30, 4:45, 7, 9:15, 11:15.
Uauow mm The best Western since "Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid," with
Oscar winner for Best Director Clint Eastwood. At Showcase: 7:05, 9:55,
UseD ProPLw Trendy as "Seinfeld", though as pointless and trivial as
"Howard's End." Kathy Bates deserves to have her "Misery" Oscar
rescinded and Shirley MacLaine deserves to move on to her next life. At
