FILMS OPENING FRIDAY:

THURSDAY

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

Cop & A HALF After proving to America that he's as tough as Quaker
State motor oil, Burt Reynold's latest project- subtitled "Kindergarden
Cop 2"- proves that he shouldn't be type-cast. He looks posed to usurp J.
Danforth as America's biggest putz. At Showcase: 12:40, 2:50, 5:00, 7:10,
9:20, 11:30.
THE CRUSH Cary "Princess Bride" Elwes stars in this new film about
orange pop. First time director Alan Shapiro is undecided about whether
to call the sequel "Slice" or "Minute Maid." Looks citrusy. At Showcase:
1:00, 3:05, 5:10, 7:15, 9:20,11:20
HuCa F.n. Nothing you haven't seen before. Read the book. Again. At
Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:05, 7:30, 9:55, 12:10.

Burt Reynolds stars in "Cop and a Half."
* FILMS HOLDING:

ALADDIN The most profitable movie in Disney history. At Showcase: 3:30,
5:30.
BORN YESTERDAY Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith's latest attempt to
revitalize their sex life by taping themselves making whoopee. Then they
try to pass it off as acting. People Magazine subscribers get discounts at
participating theaters. At Showcase: 12:45, 3, 5:10, 7:25, 9:40, 11:45.
CB4 Potentially the most embarrassing flop since Burger King introduced
their new Meatloaf sandwich. Starring Chris Rock as the fry guy. At
i Showcase: 5, 10:20, 12:15.
THE CRvING GAmE The most over-rated gender-switch film to be nomi-
nated for a bunch of Academy Awards. Yeah, you'll be crying, crying that
you wasted all that money. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:05, 7:45, 10:10,
12:20. At Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 2:35, 4:45, 9:45.
FALuNG Down Michael Douglas' latest triumph is to the '90s as "Easy
Rider" was to the '60s. Not to be missed. Co-starring some talented up-
and-comer named Robert Duvall. At Showcase: 12:25, 2:40, 7:20, 9:50,
12:10.
A FAR OFF PLAcE As opposed to a real close one. It's a sweet Disney
flick about two kids getting eaten and mauled by wild animals. With the
added bonus of a Roger Rabbit short, "Trail Mix-Up." At Showcase: 12:15,
2:35.
A FEw Goon MEN Nominated for Best-Picture, this lighthearted
military epic stars hunky Tom Cruise in yet another film where he
struggles against the ghost of his father. Well, what about the ghost of his
nanny? Hmm. Directed by Rob Reiner. At State: 4:30, 7:00. Also 9:30
(Sunday through Thursday only). At Showcase: 7.
FIRE IN THE SKv A "true story" of alien abduction. Why do space aliens
only visit hicks in the middle of nowhere? With D.B. Sweeney as the ill-
fated hick. At Showcase: 1, 4:10, 7:30, 10, 12:15.
GROUNDHOG DAY Catch this film just in time for Easter. And ask that
little rodent where the hell is spring. It's been six weeks already. At
Showcase: 12:30, 2:45, 5, 7:15, 9:35, 11:45 (except Sat.). Saturday only
12:30,2:45,5,7:15,9:35, 11:45. At Ann Arbor 1 & 2:12:45,3,5:15,
7:20, 9:30.
HowARDs END The most overrated film of the year. What's the sequel
going to be called? "Howard's End 2: The Beginning?" Wake us when
something happens. At Ann Arbor 1 & 2: 12, 7.
HOMEwARD BOUND 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: 3:15, 5:15.
MAD Doc AND GLORY Director John McNaughton ("Henry, Portrait of a
Serial Killer") goes Hollywood with Robert DeNiro, Uma Thurman and the
great Bill Murray. At Showcase: 2:55, 10:15, 12:30.
MARmIED To IT Made three years ago, then forced to sit on a dusty shelf
while Orion was filing for Chapter 11, this film about marriage- yeah,
we're shocked too- should probably have stayed in permanent dormancy.
With Cybill Shepard. Showcase: 12:20, 5:10, 7:50.
OPPosnE SEX Courtney Cox, the girl that Bruce Springsteen pulls out of
the audience at the end of the "Dancing In The Dark" video, makes a
movie. This film explores relationships between men and women. No shit.
At Showcase: 5.
POImT OF No RETURN 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,
7:50, 10:15, 12:25.
A RIVER Runs THROUGH IT Robert "Leatherface" Redford directs
another stunning tribute to the American family. Hands down Oscar winner
for Best Cinematography. Though somewhat sappy, its rich, bucolic
honesty makes it worthy of every award it wasn't nominated for. At State:
Friday through Sunday at 4:30; Monday through Thursday at 7:00.
SCENT OF A WomAN Sexist trash. Al Pacino should have been arrested
rather than rewarded. At Showcase: 12:20, 8, 11.
TEENAGE MuTANT KmA TuRTEs 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.
