Spring mov ies have always been a
motley bunch. Some are there sim-
ply because they aren't good enough
to compete in the "blockbuster"
summer season. Others are leftovers
and delayed pictures intended for the
holidays that were pushed back a
couple months. There is also always
a surprise or two that catches every-
one off guard ("The Matrix," any-
The 2000 spring season is no dif-
ferent, with a wide offering of possi-
ble hits. guaranteed losers, and the
just plain unpredictable. Whether
you crave Wes Craven, yearn to trav-
el to Mars or just want to spend
some toasty warm time in the great
indoors, there ought to be a movie
for you not far in the distance.
Here's a rundown, month by month,

of what to look for soon in a theater
near you. Remember, as always, al
release dates are subject to
c ha ie.
cbruarv seems to be a month of
returning faces, characters and plots.
"Scream 3" opens on Feb. 4. offering
more, well, screams. David
Arquette, Neve Campbell and the
bunch get scared all over again as
some nut puts on that mask and kills
people. "Gun Shy," starring Sandra
Bullock and Liam "Jedi Wanna-Be"
Neeson, is about a tough detective,
steeped in a world of criminals, who
undergoes therapy and falls in love.
Think "Analyze This" meets "Forces
of Nature." Now banish that image
from your mind forever, lest it kill
more brain cells.
The second week of February fea-
tures the troubled Leonardo
DiCaprio "comeback" pic, "The
Beach." From problems on the set to

school day called off because of too
much snow, and "Tiager" is an ani-
mated story cnterng around every-
one's favorite spring-tailed stuffed
tiger. Of the two, the smart money's
on the Tig.
The next week turns a little darker
when "Boiler Room" opens. The
film is a corporate drama about a
young college dropout (Giovanni
Ribisi) trying to claw his way to the
top. Also that week, Diane Keaton,
Meg Ryan, and Lisa Kudrow star in
"Hanging Up," the tale of three sis-
ters facing their father's death. With
all this serious stuff going on, what's
needed to cap off the week is a
wacky comedy, which "The Whole
Nine Yards" hopes to provide.
Matthew Perry and Bruce Willis star
as neighbors who are both the target
of a hitman and must work together
to come out alive.
February closes with a wider vari-
ety of genres in its last week.
"Screwed" features Norm
MacDonald, who is involved in kid-
napping his boss's dog. Ben Affleck
is an ex-con who takes on his dead
cellmate's identity in "Reindeer
Games." Word has it this big-budget
action flick was delayed from a
Christmas release because of an
eerily similar movie by Affleck's
best buddy, The Talented Mr.
Damon, that debuted in that time-
"Simpatico" is a tense drama set
in the world of horse racing, starring
Nick Nolte, Jeff Bridges and Sharon
Stone. "Deterrence," a political
thriller starring Kevin Pollak as the
President, takes place on election
eve, 2008. Sci-fi fans disappointed
by the nauseatingly awful
"Supernova" may feel redeemed
when they see "Pitch Black," in
which a group of space explorers are
marooned on a seemingly lifeless
planet. Observe the word "seeming-
ly," because you know something
spooky is going to happen, and when
spooky things go down, people die.
Finally, "Wonder Boys" is about a
philandering, writer's-blocked col-
