F I L M S O P E N I N G:
FouR WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL Andie MacDowell and Hugh Grant get
together in this film with the dumbest title since "Daddy's Dyin', Who's
Got the Will." It's probably brilliant. At Showcase: 12:00, 2:35, 5:10, 7:35,
10:10, 12:30.
THE HUDSUCKER PRoxY Tim Robbins, Paul Newman and Jennifer Jason
,Leigh are all great, but the real star of this film has to be Bruce Campbell.
Wo see Brisco on the big screen. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:35, 5:05, 7:45,
10:15, 12:25.
LEPRECHAUN 2 What can one say? St. Patrick's Day was last month. And
you thought that "Clifford" was bad. At Showcase: 12:50, 3:00, 5:10, 7:40;
9:50, 11:50.
THREESOME With any luck this will be the last theatrically-released film that
any of these actors will star in. Don't be fooled - this is actually the film
.version of "Three's Company." At Showcase: 1:00, 3:15, 5:30, 7:55, 10:05,
12:10.

-Tim Robbins stars in "The Hudsucker Proxy." Could he finally get his Oscar?

ILMS HOLDING:

CuFFORD Inept comedy not based on the kids' books about a giant red dog.
At Showcase: 12:30, 2:35, 4:40, 7:20, 9:20, 11:30.

at Work," and "Young Guns." At Briarwood: 11:45, 2:00, 4:15, 7:00, 9:15;
at Showcase: 12:00, 2:25, 4:40, 7:05, 9:30, 11:55.
4ARAWAY, SO CLOSE Although the sequel to "Wings of Desire" looks
promising, what's with the bungee shit? At State: 2:00 (Saturday & Sunday)
7:00.
GUARDING TESS "In the Line of Fire," the comedy. Why isn't Nicolas Cage
working with the Coen Brothers anymore? At Briarwood: 12:30, 2:45, 4:45,
7:15, 9:10.
HousE OF THE SPIRITS Get ready for the cast of doom doing their best to

MAJOR LEAGUE 2 Even Wesley Snipes, who will star in anything, skipped
out on this one. We doubt it was a scheduling conflict. At Briarwood:
12:25, 2:30,4:40, 7:40, 9:45; at Showcase: 12:25, 2:40, 4:55, 7:15, 9:35,

wasn't in it. Wait, Harvey Keitel? Yeah. At Showcase: 12:25, 2:25, 4:20,
f6:15.
NAKED GUN 33 1/3 Not to be confused with "Naked," this film is about the
ntellectual struggles of a man trying to get over starring in "Surf Ninjas."
At Briarwood: 1:00, 3:00, 5:15, 7:50, 9:30; at Showcase: 1:00, 3:00, 5:00,
7:00, 9:20, 11:20.
THE PAPER Ron Howard's epic tale of a daily newspaper: lots of glamour,
intrigue, and editors punching each other out. At Briarwood: 12:00, 2:30,
5:00, 7:30, 10:00; at Showcase: 12:10, 2:30, 5:00, 7:25, 9:55, 12:20.

howcase: 8:00, 10:20, 12:15.
REAuTy BITES Fantastic, yet another witty comedy about suffering as a
twentynothing. Get ready folks, there are at least 20 of these "new" com-
edies on the way. Just think of it as "21 Candles," or "The Brunch Club." At
Briarwood: 7:25, 9:20.
SCHINDLER's LIST Seven Oscars later this masterpiece still holds up. At
Showcase: 12:15, 3:45, 7:30, 11:00.

LJE BACK AND ENJOY IT, Too Don't let
the title mislead you. This isn't the
follow up to "Blonde Emanuelle."

DAZED AND CONFUSED (1993) Easily
one of the top 10 most
underappreciated films of 1993. Far
more than a hormone flick, but
never pretentious enough to irritate
anyone. Mich Th Midnight.
A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (1971)
Sequel to "Twas the Night Before

UN, THIS SUCKS, THERE'S LIKE No

recommend: Go to the library and
take out a book of essays by Joan
Didion. If you are graduating soon,
make sure to get "Slouching Toward
Bethlehem" in which there is a
brilliant essay entitled "Goodbye to

All That." Didion's a master: better
than "Resevoir Dogs."
