I L M S O P E N IN G:
SwE CHIPs The good news is that director William Friedkin actually got
another job. The bad news is that no one remembers "The French Connec-
tion." At Briarwood: 1:45, 4:30, 7:05, 9:20; at Showcase: 12:45, 3:00, 5:20,
7:40, 10:00, 12:20.
IN DEADLY GROUND Steven Seagal is back on safe ground with a three word
title. But can he really direct as well as Fugitive director Andy Davis? We
don't think so. At Showcase: 12:45, 2:55, 5:05, 7:40, 10:10, 12:20; at State:
12:00, 4:30, 7:00, 9:30, 11:30.
REAuri BIrEs Fantastic, yet another witty comedy about suffering as a
twentynothing. Get ready folks, there are at least 20 of these "new" com-
#dies on the way. Just think of it as "21 Candles," or "The Brunch Club." At
Showcase: 1:00, 3:15, 5:30, 7:50, 10:10, 12:25.

THE WAY WE WERE (1973) To
begin the radical Barbra Streisand
festival, we get a film by Sydney
Pollack, before he started selling
out. Thank God this insanity is
taking place during Spring Break.
Mich Th 7:00.
COMBINATION PLATTER (1993) An
illegal immigrant looks at American
Society. Let the laughs begin. Mich
Th 9:25.

Friday. Mich Th 7:35.
THE WAY WE WERE (1973) See
Friday. Mich 9:30
S U N D A Y
THE GUACHo (1928) No, not the
Groucho. This has nothing to with
the Marx Brothers or Oscar. Instead
you get to enjoy the wild antics of
Douglas Fairbanks. He was really
cool and really funny. Trust us.
Sheraton 3:00.
FUNNY GIRL (1968) See Saturday.
Mich Th 3:00.
WHAT's UP, Doc? (1972) Many
talented directors have worked with

Biu. STAINES Free show at the Ark courtesy of Schoolkids! Descend like locusts
on folk music!
JOHN HATT & THE GUILTY Does Songwriter said to have been inspired by the
mentality, if not the sound, of Faith No More. And Little Buddy, made up of
members of School of Fish, is there too. "There" is the Michigan Theater at 8
p.m. for either $17.50 or $22.50.
SOME PEorPL's CAuw.N CD release party for groovy rock trio at the Blind Pig.
Woo hoo!
GEoRGE BEOAu Bedard is white-hot, one of the best guitarists you will ever
hear. Trust us on this. He rocks the blues at Cava Java.
WYTcNHYKER Local band with a keen name makes its rounds at the Heidelberg.
So why don't you just go and see them?
PAUL VORNHAGEN Jazz sax at Espresso Royale (State). Move your coffee-stained
butt!
F R I D A Y
JAMEs Out of nowhere, James recorded one of the best albums of the past year,
"Laid," and easily put to shame all of their past work. It's folk-rock, it's
experimental, it's happy, it's sad, but most of all, it's incredibly moving. Try to
make it to the show, but if you can't, go out and pick up the disc so that you too
can become one of the converted. At St. Andrew's at 6 p.m.; tickets are $10.50
in advance.
UKELELE CLU Actually a club, not a band. Paul McCartney is a member, but he
probably won't show. At Cava Java.
JESSE RICHARDS She's a singer/composer/dancer/mystic. Isn't that crazy? See
her at the Ark at 8 p.m.
De I don't believe they are a national band yet. Which Dig will sue the other
first? With Power of Suggestion at Rick's.
MARK BRAUN Blues and woogie-boogie pianist at the Kerrytown Concert House
for $10 or $15. You can go tomorrow, too.
GRoovEsPooN Chickies, hippies and hornies freak out at the Blind Pig for your
personal enjoyment.
BATTAuoN I believe they are a metal band, but I could be wrong. At the ultra-cool
Heidelberg.
LoLuPOP GUILD Melodic alternative pop at Cross Street with Second Coming.
S A T U R D A Y
MARK BRAUN See Friday.
THE CH-LJTEs Actually much more, including the Stylistics, the Dramatics, and
the Floaters. At the Fox Theater in Detroit at 8 p.m. for either $30 or $25.
CRACKER wmH Coumm Crows Counting Crows is what made this one sell out,
even if their album grows remarkably thin with repeated listenings. Cracker, on
the other hand, is no longer the smug, smarmy college-rock band of the past.
With "Kerosense Hat," they've lost most of their supremely annoying qualities
and are now just a damn fine rock band. If you have tix, the doors open at the
State Theater at 6 p.m.
RFD BoYs These country boys always seem to be playing in the area. Tonight
they're at the Ark at 8 p.m., and probably will only run you about $7.75.
RESTRooM Pous Locals at the Blind Pigfwith Train of Thought. Don't you wish
the Pig was actually on campus?
SWAMP4RAMA CONSERVATORY ORCHESTRA We all know Mardi Gras ended on
Wednesday, but no one told these guys. Use up the end of carnival at Cava Java.
PRoDIGAs Playing at the Heidelberg, my Son. Go.
SNAKE AND THE CHARMERS Cross Street. With Some People's Children.
FoUR HANDS Are they four one-handed individuals, two normal individuals, one
normal and two one-handed, one four-handed and ... oh, you get the idea. At
Espresso Royale.

CRAZY FOR You The touring com-
pany of the Tony-winning musical

ham), 8 p.m., $20-35.

475-7902.

Vlichael Caine is not only a bad guy in "On Deadly Ground," but he's a brunette!?
F I L M S H 0 L D I N 0:
ACE VENTURA : PET DETECTIVE It's going to take a long time for people to
recover from this one. Remember, there were six Police Academy movies
nd two Home Alones. So far. At Showcase: 1:30, 3:30, 5:30, 7:40, 9:40,
:11:40; at State: 2:00, 4:30, 7:00, 9:30, 11:15.
SLANK 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 Ferrer 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.

same brilliant intensity she demonstrated in "The Two Jakes." With Aidan
Quinn. At Showcase: 3:00, 5:10, 7:30, 9:55, 12:10.
EETHOVEN's 2ND While we personally prefer Beethoven's 9th, lord help us
Of this dog of a series makes it that far. At Showcase: 1:15.
THE GErAwAY Kim Basinger and husband Alec Baldwin attempt to steal
money and (huh,huh) get away with it. The original was bad with

Briarwood: 1:10, 4:20, 7:20, 10:00; at Showcase: 1:15, 4:15, 7:10, 9:45,
12:10.
'L. 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: 1:40, 4:20, 7:00, 9:35.
N 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
Showcase: 1:30, 4:30, 7:30, 10:15, 12:35.
MRs. DouBmRE Yet another cross-dressing movie to make over $200
million. Is America's subconscious finally coming out of the closet? At
Briarwood: 12:45, 3:30, 7:15, 9:45; at Showcase: 1:30, 4:15, 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
yasted in American films. At Showcase: 1:10, 3:10, 5:10, 7:25, 9:30, 12:25.
tWY 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: 1:00, 3:10, 5:15, 7:25,

At Briarwood: 1:15, 4:05, 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 auteur
supreme Fred Schepisi. Remember Mr. Baseball? At Ann Arbor 1& 2:
*2:15, 2:30, 4:45, 7:10, 9:35.
*ECOND RUN FS:
HEAVEN AND EARTH At Fox: 4:30, 7:15, 9:55.
