IDEmcENT PRoPOSAL Roger Clemens shouldn't be pitching for the Red
Sox, Bob Dylan shouldn't be touring, Demi Moore shouldn't be working
the streets, and Robert Redford shouldn't be paying for sex. Demi should

At Showcase: 12:05, 2:40, 5:10, 7:45, 10:20, 12:35.
SANDLor Coming-of-age picture. Cute and stupid. Baseball and little

CB4 Potentially the most embarrassing flop since Burger King introduced

Showcase: 2:50, 10:20, 12:15.
Cop & A HAlF After proving to America that he's as tough as Quaker
State motor oil, Burt Reynold's latest project- subtitled "Kindergarten
Cop 2"- proves that he shouldn't be type-cast. He looks poised to usurp J.
Danforth as America's biggest putz. At Showcase: 12:40, 2:50, 5:00, 7:10,
* THE CRsu Cary "Princess Bride" Elwes stars in this new film about

and-comer named Robert Duvall. At Showcase: 7:05, 9:30, 11:50.
A FEw GoOD MEN Subtitled "Hot-Cross Buns," this made for suburbia
blockbuster isn't half bad. With Tom as Luke Skywalker, Jack as Darth

wan. At State: 4:30,7:00. Also 9:30 (Sunday through Thursday only). At
Showcase: 12, 4:45, 7.

A RIvEr Rums 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 WomAm Sexist trash. Al Pacino should have been arrested
rather than rewarded. At Showcase: 1, 4:20, 8, 11:15.

that you haven't heard before. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:30, 4:45, 7, 9:15,
