I The Package (15) (Andrew Davis. US. 1989) Gene Hackman. Joanna Cassidy. Tommy Lee Jones. 108 mins. US Army sergeant Hackman makes a costly mistake which leads to the loss of lives duringa skirmish round an East/West security conference and as a result is assigned to escort court-martialled soldier Jones back to safe-keeping in the States. When his charge manages to escape. Hackman can only enlist the help ofhis ex-wifc. Colonel Cassidy. Echoes ofother. bettcrfilms partially sustain this formulaic actioner with Hackman as efficient as ever. Glasgow: Odeon.

I Parenthood (15) (Ron Howard. US. 1989) Steve Martin. Diane Wiest.Jason Robards. Rick Moranis. 124 mins. A film apparently derived from the experiences of Ron ‘Mr Nice Film‘ Howard. the ex-Happy Days star. Our Steve. ex-Happ) Feet star. is in his element as a Iovablejerk trying hard to be a good dad. However. the climactic montage where every member of the cast is either giving birth or cuddling some cute wee baby in glutinous slow-motion had our critic reaching for his Sten gun. Glasgow: Cannon Sauchichall Street.

I Phantom 01 The Opera ( 18) (Dwight Ii. Little. US. 1989) Robert Englund.Jill Schoelen. Alex Hyde-White. 92 mins. See review. Glasgow: Cannon Clarkston Road. Cannon The Forge. Odeon.

I Planes. Trains and Automobiles(15) (John Hughes. US. 1987) Steve Martin. John Candy. Laila Robbins. 92 mins. Hughes relinquishes his position as the most pertinent commentator on teenage woes and graduates with honours in the side-splitting adult comedy stakes. Martin is a harrassed Chicago businessman desperate to return home from New York for Thanksgiving. After missing the last flight home he undergoes a series of fraught misadventures. reluctantly enduring the accident-prone Candy as travelling companion. Predictable and sentimental Odd Couple road movie which is nonetheless genuinely funny. Edinburgh: Cameo.

I Pretty Woman (15) (Garry Marshall. US. 199(1) Richard Gere. Julia Roberts. Ralph Bellamy. 12(Imins. In this hugely succcsful comedy-romance. Gcre stars as an unfeeling financial wheeler-dealer discovering he is human after all when he spends a week in the company ofRoberts‘ downhome goodtime girl. Conversely. she rediscovers her self-esteem by flawlesst carrying offthe role of his high society companion. so the audience can feel happy for both of them. The outline might be as hackneyed as they come. but television veteran Marshall has just the right lightness of touch. Glasgow: Cannon Clarkston Road. Cannon The Forge. Odeon. Grosvenor. Edinburgh: Dominion. Odeon. Central: Cannon. Strathclyde: Odeon Ayr. Odeon Hamilton. La Scala. UCI Clydebank. UCI East Kilbride.

I Rencho Deluxe ( 18) (Frank Perry. US. 1974) Jeff Bridges. Sam Watcrston. Harry Dean Stanton. 94 mins. Enjoyable romp as modern day cowboys Bridges and Waterston go about getting right up the noses ofthe local ranching hierarchy. who understandably set out to curtail the insolent pair‘s anarchic activities. As much a generation gap comedy as a comment on the declining values of the old West. Thomas McGuane‘s spluttering script isn‘t a total success but as ever the

cast approach his spiky one-liners with

much enthusiasm. Edinburgh: Filmhouse. I

I Rentrew Film And Television Festival A week-long examination of Scotland as depicted in Scottish films. Screenings included are The Gorbals Story. new films such as Paul Murton's Tin Fish.

Geraldine Page. 77 mins. Technically expert and sporadically enthralling cartoon adventure from the latterday Disney studios. which lacks the inventiveness and lustre of the man himself‘s work. The story concerns two members ofthe Mouse Rescue Aid Society. who. with the help of Orville the albatross. set out to save an orphan girl from the wicked Medusa's home in a Louisiana swamp. Strathclyde: ()deon Hamilton. I Revenge ( 18) (Tony Scott. US. 1990) Kevin Costner. Anthony Quinn. Madeleine Stowe. 124 mins. See review. Glasgow: Cannon The Forge. Odeon. Edinburgh: Odeon. Strathclyde: ()deon Ayr. Odeon Hamilton. UCI Clydebank. UCI East Kilbride. I The Riff ( 15) (US. 1991)) Jack Scalier. R. Lee Erney. Ray Wise. 83 mins. A ‘mystery‘ film in more than one sense. Not only does it concern mysterious forces affecting the crew of a submarine (phew! that's an original one!). but ten days before its release. its distributors were unable to supply any information about it whatsoever. All the signs ofa last-ditch attempt to cash in on Abyssmania. Glasgow: (‘annon Sauchiehall Street. Strathclyde: UCI East Kilbride. I The Right Stuff( 15) (Philip Kaufman. US. 1983) Sam Shepard. Scott Glenn. Ed Harris. Dennis Ouaid. 193 mins. Tom Wolfe‘s book about the early days of space flight treats the first test pilots-cum-astronauts as modern day cowboys crossing a new frontier. The myriad plot~lines are well dove-tailed and the flying scenes are memorany impressive. but for all the film‘s expansiveness its abrupt swings ofmood somehow militate against the kind of involvement that would have made it a truly great movie (instead ofjust a rather good one). Edinburgh: Cameo. I A Room With a View (PG) (James Ivory. UK. 1985) Helena Bonham Carter. Maggie Smith. Julian Sands. Denholm Elliot. 117 mins. Classy adaptation ofthe E.M. Forster novel about a prissy young English girl who falls in love in romantic Italy. but with an unconventional young man who seems not quite the right thingat all. Respectful but funny adaptation dissecting the emotional paucity ofthe English middle classes. Glasgow: (EFT. I Roxanne (PG) (Fred Schepisi. US. 1987) Steve Martin. Daryl Hannah. Shelley Duvall. 107 mins. Witty. tender and charming reworking of Cyrano de Bergerac which deploys a range ofcomcdy techniques as fire chief Martin ofthe enormous proboscis copes with life and Iovestruck romance. Edinburgh: ('ameo. I Rude Awakening ( 15) (Aaron Russo & David Greenwalt. US. 1990) (‘heeeh Marin. Eric Roberts. Julie Hagerty. I01 mins. The hippies are coming! The hippies are coming! After two decades growing hash in the jungles of Central America. longhairs Marin and Roberts return to the US to seek support against a proposed CIA invasion of their adopted country. and in the process discover that their old buddies have become rampant breadheads.
