if? film

on screen this month

after Lorenzo's Oil and The Prince of
Tides, Nick Nolte stars in two
films this month, playing a basket-
ball coach in Blue Chips and an
actor in James L. Brooks' I'll Do
Anything. Also on the plate: another
television show remake and a thriller
that actually keeps you guessing.
Blue Chips (Paramount)
With the recruiting stakes for big-
time college basketball getting higher
and higher, Blue Chips emerges as a
timely film with a strong cast. Nick
Nolte gets top billing as Pete Bell, a
college basketball coach under pressure
from fans and alumni to bring in big-
name recruits, and Mary McDonnell
(Passion Fish) plays his ex-wife. Real-life
basketball star Shaquille O'Neal debuts
as one of Bell's targeted "blue chips."
Blink (New Line)
Following in the footsteps of thrillers
like Jennifer 8, Blink features a vulnera-
ble female protagonist who must face a

ego basketbalteam in BlueChips,
killer alone.-
Stowe (Short
Cuts) headlines
as Emma Bro-
dy, a visually
impaired woman haunted by confusing
images of a killer, and versatile Aidan
Quinn (Benny & Joon) plays John
Hallstrom, the detective assigned to
Emma's case. Moviegoers can look for-
ward to a thriller with surprises. What a
When a Man Loves a Woman (Touchstone)
This is no fluff piece. Andy Garcia
and Meg Ryan star as Michael and Alice
Green, a couple with a loving marriage,
two little girls and an idyllic life in a
tranquil San Francisco neighborhood.
But Alice, a junior high school guidance
counselor, has a secret drinking prob-
lem that explodes one night with tragic
results. While Garcia and Ryan may
seem like an unlikely couple, both have
the talent and intensity to make this
movie a box-office success.

Shadowlands (Savoy Pictures)
Over the
ye ars, New
York writer s
Joy Gresham
(Debra Wing-
er) has been
corresponding with renowned writer
C.S. Lewis (Anthony Hopkins). On a
trip to London, the two meet and begin
a love affair. This film adaptation of the
award-winning biographical play is in
the able hands of Richard Attenborough
(Chaplin). And with Hopkins as the
Oxford don, Shadowlands is sure to gar-
ner critical acclaim.
Gunmen (Miramax)
You have to wonder how Christopher
Lambert still finds work, considering
that his last few films (Fortress,
Highlander II: The Quickening) have
made about a buck fifty for the studios.
This latest thriller is about the hunt for
a $400 million fortune. Expect plenty of
both guns and men, in keeping with the
creative title, as well as testosterone and
dubious acting. Denis Leary (that angry
guy from MTV) and Mario Van Peebles
(Posse) also star.
Ill Do Anything (Columbia)
I'll do any- d
thing is exactly
what the mak-
ers of the y
movie must
have said. It
was supposed to be a musical comedy
scheduled for release last fall. I'll Do
Anything, sans the musical part, stars
Nick Nolte as an actor who can't find
work in Hollywood. On top of that, he's
unexpectedly responsible for his six-year
old daughter whom he hasn't seen in
years. Expect power lunches and tender
father-daughter bonding.

Romeo is Bleeding (Gramercy)
Gary Old-
man (Dracula),
spurning type-
casting once
again, is a voy-
euristic cop on
the edge in Romeo is Bleeding. The stellar
cast should get your attention. Along
with Oldman, this film features Lena
Olin (The Unbearable Lightness of Being),
Juliette Lewis and Annabella Sciorra
(with Olin playing a gangster in an
interesting twist). Everyone in this flick
is double-dealing somebody. You figure
the title out.
Angie, I Says (Hollywood Pictures)
In Angie, I Says, Geena Davis revisits
the funny and unique personality she
showed in The Accidental Tourist. Davis
is Angie Scacciapensieri, who becomes
an unwed mother in her Bensonhurst
Italian neighborhood. Everyone has
advice and criticism for Angie. But she
goes her own way searching for the
answers to life's questions. In this case,
one of them might be finding a word
that rhymes with her last name.
Car 54, Where Are You? (Orion)
This film,
inspired by the
'60s television
series, hopes
to capture the
atmosphere of the original show.
Gunther Toody (David Johansen) is the
affable one, and rookie Francis
Muldoon (John C. McGinley) is strictly
by the book. You can tell by their last
names that this is no hard-boiled police
thriller, because straight action movies
need tough names like Tango and Cash.

From campuses nationwide

Ohiwish iwere an -
Oscar Mayer intern -
You're getting ready to graduate, moving
from five-year plan to 30-year mortgage. But
you're the type of person who hears the call
of the road. The rush of exploring new places
secretly excites you. In short: You wish you
were an Oscar Mayer wiener.
Maybe you should talk to Dianne Segura.
The 1992 Arizona State U. graduate pays the
bills by piloting a 23-foot-long mobile frank.
It's a bitchin' ride.
Segura, along with 11 other chot doggers,"
handles company public relations from with-
in the Wienermobiles - six 10-foot-tall
fiberglass pigs-in-blankets custom-designed
on 1988 Chevy van chassis. What a bunch of a
These industriousewiener ambassadors,
recruited from colleges across the nation, spend 340 days a
year in the Oscar Mayer Foods Corp.'s meals-on-wheels.
Since 1988, 60 grads have piloted the "Lamborwienies,"
which have been modified to include microwaves, refrigera-
tors, cellular phones and stereo systems that play 21 ver-
sions of the Oscar Mayer Wiener jingle.
"It can be a hectic job," says Segura, who graduated with a
degree in communications/public relations. "Many times
you are the excitement for a town that has never seen some-

thing so unique before."
Up to 1,000 collegians a year send applications for the
dozen hot dogger spots, Segura says, and the job serves as
an unusual stepping stone for those with strong communi-
cation skills and a sense of adventure.
"What a way to have someone remember your resum6,"
Segura says. Everybody sing: Oscar Mayer has a way with
R-E-S-U-M-and-E. Mark Lussier, The Daily Targum,

Part-time job nets
student millions
College students are always look-
ing for ways to make ends meet.
But police officials in Ames, Iowa
say DeAnglo Moore, an 18-year-old
freshman at Iowa State U., may
have gone a little too far.
Moore, who also goes by the
name DeAnglo X, and his wife
Cassandra allegedly stole about $21
million in cashier's checks from a
bank where they were working last
The Moores worked for a custo-
dial company and were supposed to
clean Firstar Bank at night while it
was closed. Instead, according to
Ames Police Detective Roland
Dippold, one night they helped
themselves to, among other things,
a cashier's stamper belonging to the
"Instead of working that night,
they printed checks," Dippold said.
Then, according to Dippold, the
Moores stole a car from an auto
rental company and drove to their
hometown of Waterloo, Iowa,
where they picked up Cassandra's
brother and- sent on the spending
spree that would lead to their arrest.
First they went to another Firstar

Bank, where, Dippold says, they
tried to cash a stolen check for
$523,557, but apparently got ner-
vous while they waited and left the
bank without the money.
Then, using some of their funny
money, they bought a $29,000
Chevy Blazer and received a check
for $700 as change from the duped
dealership. Soon after, Dippold
says, Waterloo police arrested
Moore and his conspirators as they
tried to cash that check at another
Moore, who withdrew from the
university in December, is under
federal charges of bank fraud, con-
spiracy and possession of stolen
property. He has pleaded not guilty
to the charges and is out on bail
awaiting trial in February.
If convicted, Moore and his
accused cohorts could be sentenced
to up to 70 years in jail or be
ordered to pay more than $2 mil-
lion in fines.
Firstar Bank Vice President Bob
Lembke would not comment on
how the Moores allegedly were able
to pull off such a nefarious heist.
Dippold did say he doubtead it
would happen again.
"The lightning has struck, so to
speak," he said. * Troy Mc-

Basketball uniforms
can be a real drag
Members of Sigma Nu fraternity at
Furman U. were ready to grab their
dresses and hit the basketball courts for
this year's intramural season - until
university officials said no to the dudes
in drag.
Citing safety and liability concerns,
the university told the nine men of
"Alice" - whose motto is "there's
nothing worse than getting beat by a
guy in a dress" - to drop their dresses
or face expulsion from the intramural
league. Alice, after playing in drag last
year, now plays in men's clothing.
Team manager Clarke Scott, a junior,
says the team dressed out during their
games last season without incident. And
he says the members of Alice wore short
dresses with athletic shoes to avoid acci-
dents on the court.
"There are no wigs, no bras, just
dresses," Scott says. "We just wanted to
do something different."
But Owen McFadden, director of
recreational sports, isn't syrmpathetic. "I
don't care if they walk around with
dresses on campus," McFadden says.
"But from a safety standpoint I can't let
them do it on the court." Matt
Hennie, The Paladin, Furman U.
