10 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana -- On The Record-- How much do couples need to have in common BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S You say that we've got/Noth- ing in common/No common ground to start from/And we're falling apart/You'll say the world/Has come between us/Our lives have come between us/But I know you just don't care By CHARLIE MARTIN CNS COLUMNIST (REFRAIN) And I said/What about Breakfast at Tiffany's/She said/I think I remember the film/And as I recall/I think we both kinda liked it/And I said/Well, that's the one thing we've got/And I see you/The only one who knew me/And now your eyes see through me/I guess I was wrong So what now/It's plain to see we're over/And I hate when things are over/When so much is left undone (REPEAT REFRAIN) Written by Todd Pipes Sung by Deep Blue Something Copyright (c) 1995 by Interscape Records I Deep Blue Something: It sounds like a character from "Tales of the Beyond"! Actually, they are the mu- sical group who recently made their chart debut with "Breakfast at Tiffany's." The parents of today's teens probably remem- ber the movie by the same name. However, for most pop music fans the song's title is just an enig- matic reference to something unfamiliar. The song does raise an interesting question: How much does a couple need to have in common to build a lasting relationship? Romantic relationships in one's teen years usually won't be, and need not be, lasting. In fact, as you begin to date, it helps to get to know a vari- ety of people. If you don't go steady, you have a better chance to learn more about yourself and others. You can begin to recognize the qualities in another that you genuinely want in a relationship. Initial attractions do not mean that the foun- dations for an enduring relationskip are present. However, if you have been dating for several years and now seek a committed relationship with another, the question of "common ground" is an im- portant one. There are many ways to develop what two i ple can hold in common. Let me describe common ground that has proven valuable in own marriage. I am thankful that my wife and I share the common ground of being Catholic. Clearly, does not have to be of the same religion to lasting marriage. But our common practice of Catholicism has brought my Wife and me common experiences. It has provided in growth as a couple while giving us a focus for raising our three children.  God gave us the gift of life so that grow spiritually. Practicing Catholicism is one! to do this. However, no matter what a couple's practice of religion, placing an emphasis on tual growth gives a couple a chance to nurture their relationship with God. As the song mentions, enjoying a movie to- gether is not much of a basis for keeping a ship going. While there are many sources men ground available to couples, few are more important or as successful as developing a spirituality.

FINALLY "The Music you've been asking for is here" THE CATHOLIC COMMUNICATION CAMPAIGN NEW YORK (CNS) -- The following are capsule reviews of movies recently reviewed by the U.S. Catholic Conference Office for Film and Broadcasting. The Addiction (October) Black horror tale set in New York City where a philosophy student (Lili Taylor) is bitten by a vampire, becomes one her- self and infects many others with the lust for blood. Direc- tor Abel Ferrara stages the ac- tion in a clumsy series of wooden scenes which unac- countably motivate characters to philosophcal and religious digressions on the nature of evil. Stylized violence with un- convincing gore. The U.S. Catholic Conference classifica- tion is A-III -- adults. Not rated by" the Motion Picture Association of America. Copycat (Warner Bros.) Twisted thriller in which a San Francisco homicide detec- tive (Holly Hunter) tries to nab a cunning serial killer with the reluctant aid of an expert crim- inal psychologist (Sigourney Weaver), who's still trauma- tized by a murderous en- counter with a patient. Di- rected by Jon Amiel, the plot has interest until disintegrat- ing into a repelling horror show featuring the gruesome killer and his tortured victims. Excessive violence and gore, brief nudity and much rough language. The U.S. Catholic Conference classification is O morally offensive. The Mo- tion Picture Association of America rating is R -- re- stricted. Mallrats (Gramercy) Sophomoric sleaze about two college-age retards (Jeremy London and Jason Lee) run- ning amok in a suburban mall after being rejected by their girlfriends (Claire Forlani and Shannen Doherty). Writer-di- rector Kevin Smith plumbs the gutter for laughs but finds only mindless tedium. Sexual situa- tions, nudity, drug abuse, toilet humor and constant gross lan- guage.
