"8 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana Entertainment JanuarY 11, 1991 iiii!iiiiiii iiiiiiiiiiii USCC reviews current popular movie offerings By Catholic News Service burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel NEW YORK (CNS) -- The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference Office for Film and Broad- casting. "Dances with Wolves" (Orion) Set in the Dakota territory of the 1860s, the story centers on a soldier (Kevin Costner) at a deserted frontier fort who em- barks on a voyage of self- discovery when he is befriend- ed by a Sioux tribe and falls in love with a white woman (Mary McDonnell) adopted by them. Also directed and co-produced by Costner, the film's sensitive treatment of Native Americans, exceptional cinematography and fine portrayals compensate for itg:Xessive three-hour-plus length, Much gory battlefield violence, minimal, restrained lovemaking and a flash of rear nudity. The U.S. Catholic Con- ference classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. Stern). The laughter ebbs and wanes in director Chris Colum- bus' contrived comedy, but the pace is peppy and family message heartwarming. Minor violence and robbery played for laughs. The U.S. Catholic Con- ference classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG -- paren- tal guidance suggested. "Home Alone" (20th Century Fox) A large family takes off for Christmas in Paris accidentally leaving behind their timid 8-year-old (Macaulay Culkin) who becomes resourceful in defending the house against a persistent pair of bungling "Kindergarten Cop" (Universal) An undercover cop (Arnold Schwarzenegger) poses as a kindergarten teacher to discover which little boy and his mother (Penelope Ann Miller) are in danger of being tracked down by a deadly drug dealer (Richard Tyson). Misleadingly marketed as a kid- appeal comedy, director Ivan Reitman has produced an unsettling mix of menace, mirth and contrived romance that repels as often as it enter- tains. Recurring violence with menace to children and brief sexual innuendo: The U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- Detective John Kimble (Arnold Swhwarzenegger) waits in the school's reception area during a scene from "Kindergarten Cop." -- Copyright 1990 Universal City Studios Inc.
