REPEAT REFRAIN TWICE Written by Babyface, Daryl Simmons Sung by Babyface Copyright (c) 1994 by Sony Music Entertainment I think of Babyface more as a prolific writer than a singer. However, his "And Our Feelings" is rising quickly up the charts. The song's story describes a couple whose ro- mance is breaking apart. Many people told them that their relationship "wouldn't last." The guy believes that they are ending up broken- hearted when they did not need to be. He sees their mistake as listening to other opinions instead of their own feelings. In fact, their genuine feelings for each other are now lost, buried by "words that come from whispers from people we don't know." This hit raises an important question: Who should you listen to when falling in love? Certainly, others can influence how we feel about a relationship or about any aspect of life. Conse- quently, we need toknow who to listen to or vhen to ignore another's advice. In assessing how much significance to attach to another's opinion about your romance, consider these guidelines: 1. Be leery of those who give unsolicited advice. Often, such individuals have their own agendas, ,!

Flintstones: Fun-filled featherweight By GERRI PARE Catholic News Service NEW YORK (CNS) -- If the names Fred and Wilma and Barney and Betty conjure up cartoon characters on the small screen, it's time to think big, as in big screen, big budget and big John Goodman, star of "The Flintstones" (Univer- sal). And the studio looks likely to haul in big buckaroos thanks to a huge marketing campaign, and the pre-sold au- dience of millions of fans from the long-running Hanna-Bar- bera TV series about the perky, prehistoric population of Bedrock. Director Brian Levant turns in a pleasant popcorn movie whose plot is featherweight fluff but whose visuals offer fun-filled delights throughout the picture. The cast is fine but the whimsical animals steal the show. Who can resist a pet dino, a piggy garbage disposal and an obliging critter who chews off Fred's stubble each morning? To say nothing of a supersmart bird (voice of Har- vey Korman) who saves the day when Fred is accused of embezzlement and of flip- pantly firing all his pals at the quarry! Naturally there is a villain and a vamp (Kyle MaeLachlan and Halle Berry) behind all these dire doings, and they are in cahoots -- when she is not slinking around guileless Fred. Meanwhile the friendship between Fred and Wilma (Eliz- abeth Perkins) and best bud- dies Barney and Betty (Rick Moranis and Rosie O'Donnell) hits the rocks when Fred is forced to fire Barney. When all looks lost, count on the winsome wives to save their hubby's necks so they can rush to the rescue of little Peb- bles and Bamm-Bamm. The clever production design keeps the mood lighthearted with funny bits of business going on the background when the plot in the forefront gets stretched to the limit. Goodman must be credited for being a grand Fred Flint- stone. His is a buoyant and un- flappable presence that gives the movie its bighearted cen- ter. It looks like he watched "The Honeymooners" reruns of Jackie Gleason Tor inspiration. Oddly, cute tots Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm hardly figure in the story and Wilma and Betty spend much of their time in tete-a-tete tittering. Still, the movie's jaunty tone offers lots of kid appeal, though small fry may be baf- fled by the concept of embez- zlement or lost by words like requisition. If you are unfamiliar with the cartoon, there is no need to rush out and see this, but Flintstones fans will get a nos- talgic kick out of their nonani- mated antics and children will enjoy their lovable looniness.
