BLANK CHECK Just when you thought "Iron Will" was too much, this turkey
is thrown in your face. Only two questions: where's Mac and what the hell
is Miguel Ferrur doing here? At Briarwood: 1:50, 4:00, 7:10, 9:10; at
Showcase: 1:00, 3:00, 5:00, 7:05, 9:15, 11:20.
THE GETAwAY Kim Basinger and husband Alec Baldwin attempt to steal
money and (huh, huh) get away with it. The original was bad with m
Peckinpah behind the wheel so how can this possibly be good? At
Briarwood: 1:10, 4:20,7:20, 10:00; at Showcase:12:40, 3:05,5:30,8:00,
@10:20,12:35.
MY GIRL 2 Even though Mac's character was killed by a bee, none of the
executives were susceptible to stings or common sense so they green lighted
the dumbest idea for a sequel since "Texasville." Dan, we hardly knew you.
At Briarwood: 1:30, 4:45, 7:30, 9:40; at Showcase: 12:45, 2:55, 5:05, 7:25,
9:45, 12:00

We can't wait until Break, but this kid is getting a head start in "Blank Check."

same brilliant intensity she demonstrated in "The Two Jakes." With Aidan
Quinn. At Showcase: 12:50, 3:00, 5:10, 7:30, 9:55, 12:10.
BEETHOVEN'S 2ND While we personally prefer Beethoven's 9th, lord help us
Of this dog of a series makes it that far. At Showcase: 12:40.
FARwEU. MY CONCUBINE Back by popular demand, this butt burner must be
pretty good. At State: 2:00, 5:00, 8:00.
THE FuamvE So cool that they just had to bring it back. Okay, okay, maybe
it does have a little something to do with the Oscars, but who cares? At

GRUMPY OLD MEN Great! Two hours of Nixon and Goldwater sitting
around, bitching about what they did wrong. At Briarwood: 1:45, 4:10,
7:05, 9:20; at Showcase: 12:50, 5:10, 7:30.
*GUNMEN Super actors Denis Leary and Mario Van Peebles are determined to
show you that "Posse" and "Judgment Night" were hardly flukes - these
guys really are that untalented. At Showcase: 3:10, 9:50, 11:45.
I'LL Do ANYTHING Somehow, some way, this ex-musical survived after the
first week. Nick Nolte hasn't been the sexiest man alive for a couple of
years now so what could possibly be happening. It can't possibly be good,,
can it? At Showcase: 1:20,4:10, 7:05.
INTERSECTION Sharon Stone, Richard Gere and Lolita Davidovitch star in a
film confronting the difficulties of extramarital affairs. Who cares? Is there
an ice pick in it or what? At Showcase: 1:30, 3:30, 5:30, 7:40, 9:45.
SN THE NAME OF THE FATHER The Son and Holy Ghost couldn't make it, so
they got Emma Thompson and Daniel Day-Lewis instead. Amen. At

MRs. DouBsmu Yet another cross-dressing movie to make over $100
million. Is America's subconscious finally coming out of the closet? At
Briarwood: 12:45, 3:30, 7:15, 9:45; at Showcase: 1:00, 3:50, 7:45, 10:20,
12:35.
MY FATHER THE HERO Gerard Depardieu stars as a father who must deal with
his daughter's wacky antics. Yet another piece of proof that Gerard is being
wasted in American films. At Showcase: 1:10, 3:10, 5:10, 7:25, 9:30, 11:35.
HILADELPHIA No, no, no. Not Philadelphia, PA; Philadelphia, P.C. At
Briarwood: 1:05, 4:15, 7:40, 10:15; at Showcase: 1:10, 4:00, 7:20, 10:05,

Paquin (the 10-year old daughter) doing MCI commercials? At Ann Arbor
1&2: 12:25, 2:40, 4:55, 7:25, 9:45.
ROMEO IS BLEEDING Gary Oldman stars as a cop who gets thrown around by
a wild hitwoman. Cool, Dracula gets a taste of his own medicine. At

SCINDLER's LisT It's awesome. Accept it. See it. At Showcase: (Friday and

At Briarwood: 1:15, 4:05 (except Sunday), 7:00, 9:50.
Six DEGREEs OF SEPARATION John Guare's fascinating play about deception
and a bankrupt culture will probably be destroyed in the hands of autuer
supreme Fred Schepisi. Remember Mr. Baseball? At Ann Arbor 1& 2:
12:15, 2:30, 4:45, 7:10, 9:35.
