F IL MS OPENING: THURSDAY

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

A DANGEROUS WOMAN You thought NBC acted quick in getting out that
Waco docu-drama? This one breaks all records and is subtitled "The
Lorenna Bobbit Story." At Showcase: 12:30, 2:50, 5:15, 7:50, 10:10, 12:15.

Debra Winger gets Gabriel Byrne in "A Dangerous Woman."
F I L M S H O L D I N G:
ADDAMS FAMILY VALUES Before Danny-boy bashed Murphy Brown, there
were the original advocates for "family values" - John and John Quincy,
who are profiled in this big screen PBS special. At Showcase: 12:00, 1:00,
2:10, 4:20, 5:20, 7:0, 7:50, 9:15, 10:05, 11:30, 12:10; at State: 2:00, 4:30,
7:15, 9:45, 11:45.
CARLITO'S WAY Of course, we're talking Al here, so you gotta see it. But if
that's not enough for you, catch Sean Penn doing his impersonation of "If
Art Garfunkel and John McEnroe had a kid." At Showcase: 1:00, 4:00,
7:10, 8:00, 10:05, 12:40.
* COOL RUNNING It used to be that the Jamacian scenes made us feel warm.
But now it is December in Ann Arbor, so the bobsled scenes do the same
thing to us. At Showcase: 12:10, 2:20, 5:00, 7:45, 9:45, 11:50.
JOSH AND S.A.M. A 12-year-old and his brother flee the country to avoid
the draft? Washingtonians Bill and Dan didn't get credit for contributing
their life stories. At Showcase: 12:30, 2:50, 5:15.
MALICE After all those years on "Cheers", Lillith Sternan-Crane still can't
do a proper New England accent. Maybe she can shave Alec Baldwin for
us, though. At Showcase: 7:45 (except Saturday), 10:00, 12:30.
MAN'S BEST FRIEND Whose best friend craps on their rug, drinks from their
toilet, and sticks their nose in everyone's crotch? At Showcase: 1:20, 3:20,
5:20, 7:40, 9:40, 11:40.
MRS. DOUBTFIRE Who could've guessed? "Walk Like a Man" and "Dude
Looks Like a Lady" are played during montages. Don't rack your brains for
anything original, people. At Showcase: 11:15, 1:50, 4:30, 7:10, 9:50,
12:30.
MY LIFE Film version of the famous theme song from "Bosom Buddies,"

baby as Alexa Rae. At Ann Arbor 1&2: 12:15, 2:30, 4:45, 7:15, 9:35; at
Showcase: 1:30, 4:30, 7:30, 10:00, 12:20.

Christmas Story," Ralphie grows up to collect lamps shaped like female
body parts. At Showcase: 11:40, 1:40, 3:30, 5:10, 7:25, 9:20, 11:00..
GEORGE BALANCHINE'S THE NUTCRACKER We're adults now. Now, we can go
to see this and talk and pick noses as much as we want without getting
slapped by our parents. At Showcase: 12:10, 2:30.
A PERFECT WORLD Finally, a movie about a place where Coke machine
dispense beer for 45 cents and we all have time for significant others. At
Showcase: 11:15, 2:00, 4:40, 7:35, 9:30, 10:30, 12:20; At State: 2:00, 4:30,
7:00, 9:30, 11:30.
REMAINS OF THE DAY In the near future, Emma Thompson, Anthony Hopkins
and Merchant-Ivory will be worshipped as gods, though we do insist that
there be a "Gospel According to Clarice," where she tells us about the
lambs. At Ann Arbor 1&2: 1:00, 4:00, 7:00, 9:50; at Showcase: 12:40, 3:40,
7:00, 10:00, 12:35.
THE THREE MUSKETEERS Under his red robe, Tim Curry actually does wear a
brassiere and garters. Some habits are hard to break. At Showcase: 12:00,
2:25, 4:50, 7:15, 9:40, 12:00.
WE'RE BACK: A DINOSAUR'S STORY Yep, they're back. But from the reviews,
we're amazed that they are still here. At Showcase: 11:30, 1:30, 3:20, 5:05,
7:00.
