The Message  for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana -- On The Record-- WILD NIGHT As you brush your shoes/And stand before your mirror/And you comb your hair/And grab your coat and hat/And walk the streets/Trying to remem- ber/All those wild nights/Breeze through your mind Your night out By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST REFRAIN And everything looks so complete/When you're walking out on the street/And the wind catches your feet/And sends you flying, crying Ooh, oo-ooh weefrhe wild night is calling All the girls walk by/Dressed up for each other/And the boys do the boogie woogie/On the corner of the street/And the people pass- ing by/Just stare with the wild wonder/And in- side the juke box/Roars just like thunder REPEAT REFRAIN The wild night is calling/Come on out and dance/Come on out and make romance/Come on out and dance/Come on out and make ro- mance REPEAT REFRAIN i Produced by John Mellencamp Michael Wanchic Sung by John Mellencamp/Me'shell Ndegeocello Copyright (c) 1977 by Wb Music CorpJ Callendonia Soul Music (ASCAP), 1994 by John Mellencamp "Wild Night" is John Mellencamp's latest hit. My regular readers know that I like his music. The song describes a night out on the town. In today's entertainment scene, the juke box that the song mentions has been replaced by high- "tech sound and light effects. Yet the feeling of such an evening still reaches out and says: "Come on out and dance. Come on out and make romance." Teens look forward to such opportunities as times of adventure and fun. One may not to be sure what the night will bring, but looking for a good time with friends is one big expectation. As a young person begins an evening out with friends, it helps to keep these guidelines in mind: 1. If you want to be out late, discuss this with your parents. Don't turn .your evening into an episode of surprise and worry for those who love you. Establish a curfew that is acceptable to both you and your parents. Such a negotiated standing demonstrates that you respect 2. Remember that having fun doesn't alcohol consumption. Alcohol is readily likely to be pushed upon you. Make up your mind ahead of time how you will handle peer pressure to drink. Do not drive if you drink or ride with a who has been drinking. Too many fun nights have,i ended in tragedy because of alcohol. 3. Part of the fun is.meeting lots ple. However, not everyone holds values similar tc yours. So be clear about what behaviors reflect yo$ value system. Be strong enough to say no when one asks you to do something that goes against beliefs. Don't ruin your fun by realizing the next morning that you feel guilty about failing to be person that you want to be. 4. Finally, be true to your friends. Don't them because you meet a girl or guy that interestS you. Sure, get a phone number or arrange to meet new acquaintances at a different time. But peoples' feelings is not the path to will be an act that you regret. Have fun, yes. But also be sure to have your thinking clear and straight about what kind of fun will leave you with a good feeling.

At the movies: Current reviews NEW YORK (CNS) -- The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference Office for Film and Broadcasting. "Blue Sky" (Orion) In 1962 Alabama, an un- faithful, manic-depressive Army wife (Jessica Lange) pulls herself together to rescue her devoted husband (Tommy Lee Jones) when he is shoved into a mental hospital for at- tempting to foil an Army cover- up of a nuclear testing accident involving innqcent civilians. Despite an increasingly im- plausible script, director Tony Richardson gets choice perfor- mances from the two stars in a domestic melodrama centering on preserving marital love at all costs. Fleeting nudity, brief bedroom scenes and minor vio- lence. The U.S. Catholic Con- 10 DAYS! Round trip aiffare from Evansville.

Newburgh, IN 47630 ference classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture As- sociation of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be inappropriate for chil- dren under 13. "Me and the Mob" (Arrow) Amateurish comedy in which an inept New York writer (James Lorinz) goes to work for his mobster uncle (Tony Dar- row) in order to write a crime expose, but proves just as hap- less at crime as at writing and is soon risking his neck by wearing a wire to betray his partners in crime. Producer-di- rector Frank Rainone's hamhanded effort quickly falls flat as the script is confined to lame mafia stereotypes of wise guys spouting endless macho gutter talk. An extended sex scene, intermittent violence in- tended for comic effect and continuous rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is O m morally offensive. Not rated by the Mo- tion Picture Association of America. "Princess Caraboo" (TriS- tar) Delightful fact-based tale set in early 19th-century England where an exotically dressed young woman (Phoebe Cates) speaking no English is found on the wayside and is em- braced by the upper classes who believe she is a ship- wrecked Javanese princess, until a lovestruck reporter (Stephen Rea) uncovers her true background. Director Michael Austin turns in a deft comedy that skewers the pre- tention of the British upper crust and features masterful comic performances by John Lithgow and Kevin Kline in smaller roles. Mild sexual in- nuendo. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is A- II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG parental guidance suggested.
