The title track was an even bigger hit back in the fall and winter. The fellow in the song says to a girl: "You gotta tell me that you want me too; look at me, you're all that I need, it's true." He recognizes the potential for love between them. But she perhaps does not see the same poten- tial. Sometimes it works that way. We believe we see the potential for love with another person, yet for reasons we may not understand that person does not see what we see, or, if he or she does, does not seek love with us. The song talks about love that is hidden away, yet a love that "you can't disguise." At times, because of past painful situations, a person becomes fearful of loving again. The past hurts have eroded the person's ability to trust. If you find yourself attracted to such a person, put aside your own agenda. Romance can be com- plex, especially for someone still recovering from Sometimes the time is just right Reach out to this person who has been someone, and show him or her the of love. God's will for us is that we discover the ourselves and in our world. Most of us need see this "best." You can be a person who helps ers recognize their goodness. When you treat another person warmly, you listen to another's problems without fix them, then the person has a chance to ence more of his or her God-given especially true when you aren't interest when you care simply to be a positive support in the other's life. Many times in these columns, I've teens to recognize the value of friendship. Every teen has the power to realize more of their own self-value. There are times when we need to put needs and emotional drama of romance instead on being a good friend. You have much to offer.

Atthe movies THE CATHOLIC COMMUNICATION NEW YORK (CNS) -- The fol- h)wing are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference (USCC) Office for Film and Broadcasting. Ratings are also given by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA}. "Head Above Water" (Fine Line) Laborious comic misfire in which a staid judge (Harvey Keitel) grows manic trying to dispose of the corpse of his wife's former lover (Billy Zane) while she (Cameron Diaz) comes to fear her husband murdered him, then suspects it was the care- taker (Craig Scheffer). Directed by Jim ,ton, the lame series of misunderstandings that esca- late into homicidal violence are too witless to be amusing and the plot is too capricious to hold interest. Comic violence, grisly situations, sexual innuendo and coarse language. The USCC classification is A- III -- adults. The MPAA rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inap- propriate for children under 13. '*The Innocent Sleep" (Castle Hill) Murky thriller in which a homeless London drunk (Rupert Graves) witnesses a murder, then enlists the help of an inves- tigative reporter (Annabella Sciorra) after realizing he's now being tailed by a corrupt police detective (Michael Gambon). Director Scott Mitchell's fuzzy melodrama vaguely hints at an international conspiracy, but fails to establish the rationale behind the murder. Intermittent violence, brief sexual innuendo, some rough language and occa- sional profanity. The USCC clas- sification is A-III -- adults. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Men in Black" (Columbia) Zany sci-fi comedy in which a brassy New York City cop (Will Smith) is recruited by a taciturn government agent (Tommy Lee Jones) who monitors extrater- restrial ctivity in the city to prevent a ferocious alien in human disguise from destroying planet Earth. Director Barry Sonnenfeld's apt pairing of Smith and Jones mixes under- stated hip humor with witty creature puppetry and amusing special effects. Some cartoon- like comic violence and a few instances of profanity. The USCC classification is A-III -- adults. The MPAA rating is PG- 13 -- parents are strongly cau- Confirmation primer is for junior and senior high students Getting Confirmed, A Journey of Questions and Answers, Liguori Publications, One Liguori Dr., Liguori, MO 63057-9999, 1997 16 pages, $2.95. Book Review By MICHAEL H. EPPLER Director of Youth and Young Adult Ministry II This booklet is an excellent "Confirmation primer" designed specifically for junior and senior high school level Confirmation candidates. Despite its brevity, it is full of rich colors, textures, and solid responses to the fundamen- tal questions: "What is Confir- mation.  and "Why is it so impor- tant to me?" The text addresses these questions and many others in a straightforward, honest and Catholic manner. The strengths of this text is that it places Confirmation in the context of full initiation into the Catholic Church and it offers an overview of the process of formation as well as some the- ology of the sacrament itself. The text is supportive of parents who are "requesting" (or requir- ing) their teens to celebrate this sacrament. There is also a nice section on "what next?" or the period of time after the teen is confirmed. This reviewer highly recom- mends that parish Confirmation catechists check this booklet out to see if it would help in the organizing stages of preparation for the Sacrament of Confirma- tion. A note of caution: This text is not complete enough to use as the sole catechetical resource. Catechists should utilize the texts that are already in place, using this booklet as a resource to generate enthusiasm and con- templation about the prepara- tion period itself. tioned that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. "Out to Sea" (20th Century Fox) Thin formula comedy in which two cranky elders -- an inveterate schemer (Walter Matthau) and his long-suffering honest pal (Jack Lemmon) -- find unexpected romance while working as dancing partners aboard a cruise liner. Amiably directed by Martha Coolidge, it's a good-natured vehicle for a vet- eran comedy team backed by a supporting cast of other veter- ans (notably Gloria DeHaven, Elaine Stritch and Donald O'Connor) who add to the fun of this light-hearted, lightweight sentimental comedy.
