SECRETS OF THE PROS
The 25th Hour Aaron Stampler reeval-
uates his life with the help of Scotty
and Roger Maris. Too bad there's only
24 hours in a day ... it doesn't leave
enough time to watch all the other
great Spike Lee films from the past
few years. At Showcase: 1:30, 4:15,
7:00, 9:50, 12:35 (Fri. and Sat.)

again, then get ready for Biker Boyz.
At Showcase: 12:00, 2:30, 5:00,
7:30, 10:00, 12:30 (Fri. and Sat.)
Just Married In the history of film,
three movies have been released
under this name; nobody has ever
seen any of them. Maybe this one will
About Schmidt Dear N'dugu, Jack is
back and we think Kathy is a great
actress, but why oh why does the
hot tub scene have to be in the
movie? Those of faint stomach avert
thine eyes. At Showcase: 1:15,

9:55, 11:55 (Fri. and Sat.), 12:25
(Fri. and Sat.)
Adaptation Malkovich Malkovich!
Malkovich Malkovich Malkovich.

scorcher! At Showcase: 12:35,
3:00, 5:30, 7:55, 10:20, 12:40 (Fri.
and Sat.) 5 stars
Catch Me if You Can Spielberg's
attempt to make everyone forget
the conundrum that was "Al." Nice
try, but audiences don't forgive so
easily, evendif this movie is so damn
good. At Madstone: 1:05, 4:00,
7:00, 9:45. At Showcase: 12:20,
2:10, 3:15, 3:45, 5:15, 6:45, 8:15,

Sat.), 12:20 (Fri. and Sat.) 4 stars
Die Another Day And the Daily's new
vote for who next should assume the
role of James Bond is .:. Jason
Statham. He was cool as Turkish and
he won our hearts in "The
Transporter." Once he grows some
hair he has our vote. At Showcase:
9:35, 12:15 (Fri. and Sat.) 3 stars
Far From Heaven Exploits the taboos
of 1950's melodramas and exposes
a film like "Magnificent Obsession"
for exactly what it is ... bad. At
Madstone: 1:45, 4:15, 7:05, 9:30 4
Frida Of course Selma is a terrific
actress, who else could have pulled
off the dancing in "From Dusk till
Dawn" so well? At Madstone: 1:00,
3:20, 7:00, 9:20 4 stars
Gangs of New York It's long and it's

not. At Showcase: 1:00, 3:10, 5:20,
7:25, 9:30, 11:45 (Fri. and Sat.)
Narc Wow, another movie about'cor-
rupt cops, but this one's set in Detroit.
A very original spin. Add a disgusting-
ly old-looking, overweight Ray Liotta
to the mix and you have something
nobody has ever wanted to see. At
Showcase: 12:15, 2:40, 5:05, 7:35,
10:10, 12:30 (Fri. and Sat.)
The Pianist Wouldn't it suck to be
stuck in an apartment with a piano
and not be able to make a sound. I
know I'd be upset. But seriously, go
see it. At Showcase: 1:05, 4;05, 7:05,
Harry Potter and the Chamber of
Secrets Everyone knows that these
stories borrow from just about every
great fantasy ever written, but listen
to Bowie's "The Wild Eyed Boy Who
Lived Under the Stairs" and you will
discover its true origins. At
Showcase: 12:05, 3:20, 6:30 3
Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers
Dumbledore the first has passed,
and we have yet to recover, but
there is still hope that Gandalf might
find a way to be resurrected for the
third Potter. Would any other great
old English actor fit better ... I think
not. At Madstone: 1:00, 4:15, 7:45

Maid in Manhattan With a modern
Cinderella story, isn't it obvious that
J Lo is trying to develop her acting
with new and different roles? It's ok
though, she's obviously focused on
her booming perfume career. At
Showcase: 12:15, 2:25, 4:40, 7:10,
9:20, 11:35 (Fri. and Sat.)
My Big Fat Greek Wedding Why is
this film still in the theaters? The
DVD is coming out soon. GO AWAY!
At Madstone: 1:10, 3:10, 5:10,
7:10, 9:10 3 stars
Pinocchio Film versions of this story
just don't seem to work out. What
were you thinking Roberto; you must
have done something wrong to have
your movie receive worse reviews
than "Al." At Showcase: 12:00
Standing in the Shadows of Motown
There can be nothing better than
watching a bunch of old musicians
sit around and tell stories, and hav-
ing Bootsie Collins sit in only makes
it better. At Madstone: 1:15, 3:30,
7:15, 9:30 4 stars
Star Trek: Nemesis At least Geordie
can look back at a career as Lamar
Latrell, and Picard is now Professor
Xavier. Look for the Number 1 spin-
off coming this fall. At Showcase:
9:05, 11:30 (Fri. and Sat.)
Two Weeks Notice Gee, a movie with
Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant ... I
wonder if they end up falling in love.

For the Daily
Upon entering college, one anx-
iously looks forward to an exhila-
rating social scene filled with new
friends, adventures and lasting
memories. However, students here
at the University, where we have
just as many libraries as bars, often
ponder what to do if under the age
Luckily, we have formulated a list
of "alternative" activities for the
weekend if you just aren't "into" the
bar scene or literally cannot get in.
"I am so sick of the typical bar
scene in Ann Arbor. I feel like every
weekend I go to the same bar and I
see the same people and do the same
thing. I just wish there were other
things to do in Ann Arbor because it

perhaps culturalevents," said Lauren
Kovacs, an LSA senior.
Sporting events are a great way to
meet other University students and
support athletic teams.
If you'd rather be an athlete than a
spectator, Rock n' Bowl may be a
good choice for entertainment.
Colonial Lanes, located on South
Industrial Avenue, offers Rock
n'Bowl on weekends.

of as a date place, museums are
often a great venue for meeting peo-

fun way to spend quality time.

Maybe the bar owners should just
let younger people in without drink-

the initiative and find things for
people to do at U of M who are

man Jenny Katz.
