If you like Bon Jovi, you probably love his "Cross Road" CD. His current hit "Always" is off this disc, which also includes some of his best recordings. The song carries the Bon Jovi trademark: lots of vocal power. He can take a song to its emotional limits through the sheer power of his voice. The song describes the grief the man feels after a romance ends. He imagines that the woman will find a new man who will say "the words you've been needing to hear." At this point, the man says he can only "wish I was him" and that "his words were mine to say to you to the end of time." This song attests to the power that words pos- sess. What we say and/or don't say can make a dif- ference in how fragile or how strong our love with another becomes. Most of us realize the significance of saying "thank you," "I'm sorry," and "I love you." These are words of endearment needed for the growth of love aspects of his or her personality affect positive way. 2. When you do something wrong, go1 words of apology. Take behavior.

"The Madness of King George" (Goldwyn) Farce mixes with historical drama in this period piece set in 1788 England, where the manic behavior of George III (Nigel Hawthorne) enables his pompous son (Rupert Everett) to be named regent while the queen (Helen Mirren) fumes and a strong-willed doctor (Ian Holm) uses intimidation and re- straints to curb the king's out- bursts so he may be restored to the throne. Hawthorne's vigor- ous performance as the erratic king gradually reveals his touch- ingly frail humanity in director Nicholas Hytner's sprightly re- creation of royal plotting and court intrigues. Some crude sex- ual innuendo and intermittent toilet humor. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A-III adults. Not rated by the Mo- Specials on Martin Luther King Jr. The Faith and Values Chan- nel will highlight the life of Martin Luther" King Jr., during three prime-time specials on Monday, Jan. 16, from 8 to 10 p.m. Legacy of a Dream. James Earl Jones narrates this portrait of Dr. King's battle to secure the constitutional right to vote for African Americans. Andrew Young and Coretta Scott King are featured. 7 7:30 p.m. CST. Assignment: The Legacy of Martin Luther King. Twenty-five years after the murder of Martin Luther King, journalist Charles Wheeler traveled through the United States to assess the mood of African Americans today. The result of his work is this hour- long documentary, which ex- amines what King's legacy means to them and how close America is to being at peace with itself. 7:30 -- 8:30 p.m. CST. Dreams of Kings. Music, dance, documentary footage from the civil rights move- ment, excerpts from speeches by Martin Luther King Jr. and the Resurrection story are brought together in a special that traces the spirit of justice from ancient times to today. 8:30 m 9 p.m. CST. tion Picture Association of America. "A Man of No Importance" (Sony Pictures Classics) Seriocomic tale set in 1960s Dublin where a bus conductor with artistic pretensions endeav- ors to stage an amateur produc- tion of Oscar Wilde's "Salome" in the parish hall until gossip of the play's immorality and the unwed pregnancy of the lead (Tara Fitzgeralcl) dash his hopes and force him to face up to his latent homosexuality. Director Suri Krishnamma's character study of an obsessive bachelor in his 50s starts in whimsical fash- ion, then grows increasingly dark in a clumsy, heavy-handed attempt to convey the lonely passion of an individual inno- cent of sexual experience but driven by yearnings for another man. Sympathetic treatment of a character's unfulfilled homo: sexual inclinations, a brutal beating and a brief but graphic sex scene with a heterosexual couple. The U.S. Catholic Con- ference classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- re- stricted. "Safe Passage" (New Line) A middle-aged woman (Susan Sarandon) is joined by her es- tranged husband (Sam Shepard) and six grown sons when a sev- enth son, a Marine in the Mideast, is reported missing after a terrorist bombing, and while awaiting further news vent long-standing familial frus- trations. Although director Robert Allan Ackerman's earnest kitchen-sink drama deals with numerous prickly personal problems and family re- lationships, its glum tone and lethargic pacing blunt its exami- nation of the enduring strength of family ties. Several sexual ref- erences, brief recreational drug use, occasional profanity and minimal rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classi- fication is A-III -- adults. The Motion PictureAssociation of America rating is PG-13 -- par- ents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappro- priate for children under 13.
