great in "Dead Man Walking." I

become famous again? At Show-
case: 2:30, 6:55 2 stars.
Barbershop I went to a barbershop
this past weekend and it was noth-
ing like the one in the movie. The
barbershop I went to was in West

Salon but still...where was Ice
Cube? At Showcase: 12:50, 3:05,
5:30, 7:50, 10:25, 12:25 (Fri. and

The Master of Disguise If you think
Dana Carvey showed the art of hid-
ing in this film, check out his
career now that studio execs have
seen its box office numbers. At
Moonlight Mile Hey Susan, don't
think we forgot about "Banger Sis-
ters" just because you showed up

stuff. At Showcase: 4:45, 9:05,
11:20 (Fri. and Sat.) 4 stars.
Red Dragon I would like to take a
poll to see who out there actually
liked "Hannibal." Now, I'm not the
biggest fan of "Red Dragon" but it

Sex with Strangers No, it is not
"Perfect Stranger" but now that I
mentioned it, wouldn't you like to
see Balki make some love. At Mad-
stone: 1:45, 3:45, 5:45, 7:45, 9:45
Signs Only two screenings is a
"sign" that Mel's flick is finally
leaving theaters. It doesn't take a
"sixth sense" to know that. Kill me
now. At Showcase: 3:30, 10:20 4

your TMD it is the "date movie of
the year." Yep, that's right, "Swim-
