For example, consider Babyface's music career. He has written numerous hits for other recording artists. Now he has his own back-to- back songs on the Top 40, his latest being "When Can I See You?" The song describes a broken a romance. The guy in the song is distressed over this separa- tion. All he can think about is getting back to- gether with his former girlfriend. Even if he meets someone new, he doubts he'll truly be over this girl. He appears to see reconcilia- tion as his only option for future happiness. The }ong is a bit melodramatic. And, in- deed, some dating relationship need to end as people learn more about each other. But let's as- sume in this case that the girl gives him a posi- tive response. What would be the best ways for them to try to put their relationship back to- gether? While there are no methods that guarantee success, certain steps could be constructive. First, there needs to "be an honest and clear assessment of what caused the problems. Some- times, a couple is too close to the conflict to ex- (Your comments are always welcome. address: Charlie Martin, RR 3, Box 182, Rock! port, IN 47635.) 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. "Bullets Over Broadway" (Miramax) Prohibition-era comedy in which a high-minded play- wright (John Cusack) accepts backing for his latest work from a gangster (Joe Viterelli) on condition his showgirl mis- tress (Jennifer Tilly) be in the cast, then during rehearsals falls for the play's fading star (Dianne Wiest), rewrites his script in collaboration with the mistress' hard-boiled body- guard (Chazz Palminteri) and comes to realize his inadequa- cies as an artist. Co-written (with Douglas McGrath) and directed by Woody Allen, the lightweight period proceedings are intermittently amusing and the exaggerated perfor- mances are fun for a while, but the theme's skewering of pre- tentiousness is heavy-handed and the philosophical asides lack wit and originality. Occa- sional stylized violence, some sexual situations and refer- ences as well as a few in- stances of profanity. The U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- tion is A-III m adults. The Mo- tion Picture Association of America rating is R -- re- stricted. "I Like It Like That" (Co- lumbia) After her husband (Jon Seda) is jailed for stealing a stereo, a Bronx housewife (Lauren Velez) provides for their three children by taking a job with a Manhattan music producer (Griffin Dunne) which leads to a marital split when the husband accuses her of sleeping with the producer and acknowledges his own af- fair with a neighbor. Written and directed by Darnell Mar- tin, the inner-city drama is most effective in depicting the tensions of ghetto life and the struggle to transcend its depri- vations, though the wife's growth in personal self-confi- dence is portrayed largely in terms of sexual liberation. Fre- quent sexual situations and references, a fairly graphic bedroom scene, a strong anti- drug scene involving a minor, some profanity and recurring rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- tion is A-IV m adults, with reservations. The Motion Pic- J . ture Assomahon of America rating is R m restricted. "The Scout" (20th Century Fox) Down-on-his-luck baseball scout (Albert Brooks) in the hinterlands of Mexico discov- ers a phenomenal switch-hit- ting pitcher (Brendan Fraser) who, after being signed by the New York Yankees, is diag- nosed by a psychiatrist (Di- anne Wiest) as repressing ter- rible memories of childhood abuse and badly in need of therapy. Director Michael Ritchie begins with a light- weight but good-natured comic premise, then turns darkly se- rious by focusing on the player's emotional instability and its potential consequences until copping-out in a slick feel-good finale. Some heavy menace, a few sexual refer- ences and some profanity. The U.S. Catholic Conference clas- sification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned that some material may be in- appropriate for children under 13. "The Specialist" (Warner Bros.) A former CIA explosives ex- pert (Sylvester Stallone), hid- ing from a murderous col- league (James Woods), is lured into the open by an icy seduc- tress (Sharon Stone) who per- suades him to who slaughtered her years earlier. Every is despicable in Llosa's atrociously tally trashy, soft-core ! melodrama, in which olence is seen as the ate solution to any cessive violence, depiction of revenge ! extended sex scene and much rough U.S. Catholic sification is O sive. The Motion ciation of America -- restricted.
