Films holding


A Classic
Not Worth Your Time, or Your Money

American Beauty (B+) Writing this list
is the highlight of my day. It's all about
the Bentleys from here on out. At State:
1:30 (Sat. & Sun.), 4 (Sat. & Sun.),
7:15, 9:30, 12 (Sat.). At Showcase:
1:10, 3:40, 6:40, 9:05, 11:20 (Fri. &
The Cider House Rules (C) Team Mack-
ey weeps long, wet tears for the Oscar
Michael Caine stole from them. Swallow
the American accent and retire now,
Michael. We can't take much more of
you. At Showcase: 2:05, 4:25, 6:55,
9:30, 11:55 (Fri. & Sat.).
Erin Brockovich (B) So after three
straight weeks at the top of the box
office, Hollywood is chanting sequel and
they mean it this time. The latest pro-
posed pitch has Erin marrying former
hotshot director Peter Bogdanovich and
,piling into the car for a cross-county
roadtrip. When the Bogdanoviches get
pulled over by the pigs, they can cop
some lame excuse, like we're just going
to Milwaukee for the dolphins (world-
renowned mind you), then the officer
will let them go, 'cause girls like Erin
have it made like that. At Briarwood:
1:20, 4, 6:50, 9:40. At Showcase:
12:55, 3:45, 5:10, 6:35, 7:50, 9:20,
11:50 (Fri. & Sat.).
The Exorcist (A) Catch this classic re-
release with new bonus footage. Cool!
- At Showcase: 1:20, 4, 6:50, 9:35,
12:05 (Fri. & Sat.).
Final Destination (C) The final destina-
tion for many of us every night is the
dorm cafeteria, where we're treated to a
warm vegetable stir-fry served on a
warm bed of wild rice. That's assuming
the seared tuna dish doesn't pan out as
planned. At Showcase: 1:25, 3:35, 5:45,
8, 10:10, 12:10 (Fri. & Sat.).
Ghost Dog (C) Come see Forrest's corn-
rows put Sprewell andIverson to shame.
At State: 2 (Sat. & Sun.), 4:30 (Sat. &
Sun.), 7, 9:15.
High Fidelity (C) Well, if John Cusack
was a good actor and the script here
was actually funny, then this might be a

good movie. Wonder why the book was
so popular. At Showcase: 12:10, 2:35,
4:55, 7:20, 10:05, 12:20 (Fri. & Sat.).
Mission to Mars (D-) Its kind of a dag-
blamed shame that this is only the sec-
ond worst movie Tim Robbins has been
in this year. Can you guess the worst
(Hint: Look one entry up)? I've got a
slice of warm peach pie that says you
can't. At Showcase: 12:25, 11:15 (Fri.
& Sat.).
My Dog Skip B+ Enough of this busi-
ness about Skip, what we really need is
a movie about my dog Norton. That's
right, Edward Norton. Ed and I are dogs
and we play b-ball every Saturday and if
we could just get a camera crew to
come tape us, well, we might be onto
something big. Besides, Ed's got a
wicked reverse slam that you have to
see to believe. At Briarwood: 1:15,
3:15, 5:20.
Price of Glory Last I heard, glory costs
a little bit more than a hot dog at Com-
erica Park. But it's a closer call than it
should be. At Showcase: 12.
The Road to El Dorado (C) This movie
would be much better if it were known
as "The Road to El Dorito" and was
about two brothers who go off in search
of a bag of perfect chips. Elton John-
would sing the title track "Cool Ranch."
At Briarwood: 1, 3, 5, 7:10, 9:20. At
Showcase: 12:30, 1, 1:30, 2:30, 3,
3:30, 4:30, 5, 5:30, 6:30, 7:15, 7:45,
8:15, 9, 9:30, 11 (Fri. & Sat.).
Romeo Must Die (C+) If this movie lives
up to its title, I'm not liking Romeo's
chances of being alive come credit time.
At Briarwood: 7:40, 10:15. At Show-
case: 12:40, 3:05, 5:40, 8:05, 10,
10:30, 12:25 (Fri. & Sat.), 12:40 (Fri. &
The Skulls (C+) Secret societies are no
fun, secret societies hurt someone. At
Briarwood: 1:30, 4:30, 7:20, 9:45. At
Showcase: 12:20, 12:50, 2:45, 3:15,
5:05, 5:35, 7:25, 7:55, 9:45, 10:15, 12
(Fri. & Sat.), 12:30 (Fri. & Sat.).
The Sixth Sense (B) The saving grace of
the Academy Awards was the fact that
they threw a block down on little Haley.
Tough stuff, kid, learn to deal with it. At
Showcase: 2:50, 10:25, 12:35 (Fri. &
