The Doors (R)
Oliver Stone proves once and for all that he is the
most obnoxious, self-centered, pretentious
director inHollywood. This is his story of Jim
Morrison. If it weren't for the good music and the
fact that Val Kilmer really looks like the Lizard
King, then this would be a total waste. Don't
bother tripping out beforehand, it won't help.
While driving to the theater, keep your eyes on the
road and your hands upon the wheel. (At Fox

Home Alone (PG)
Spoiled, sheltered, but amazingly resourceful
suburban brat takes on two hoods when his
obnoxious family jets off to Paris without him.
Lotsa laughs in this box office champ.

to members of the Wolf family while he helps the
Sioux Indians fight off the meanie white imperialist
scumbag soldiers so he can develop multi-million

Oscars. (At Briarwood: 10, 1:30, 5, 8:30; At

funny guy genre which has been dominated by John

11:50)
Sleeping with the Enemy (R)
A film that glorifies wife bashing and stars Julia
Roberts - a match made in heaven, huh? This will
probably be the flick she'll be ashamed to show her
kids 20 years from now. Can you blame her?
