Ratings are also given by the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA). "Beaumarchais, The Scoundrel" (New Yorker) Elaborate historical romp recounts the romantic and polit- ical exploits of the rakish 18th- century playwright (Fabrice Luchini) who, in addition to being jailed for ridiculing the French aristocracy, was an inventor, a magistrate, a spy and gun runner for American revo- lutionaries. Director Edouard Molinari's giddy approach to the title character's busy life unreels as a series of breathless misadventures without reveal= ing much of Beaumarchais' character or motivations. Subti- tles. Some sexual innuendo, fleeting nudity and an instance Vatican RadiO World News Mon.- Fd. ai 5:30 p.mi Or00yon WUEV-FM 91.5 University of Evansville On the air or on mur computer at w.emnsv, edul.,wuevweb i i i Written by Robyn and Max Martin Sung by Robyn Copyright (c) 1997 by BMG Entertainment "Show Me Love" is the current chart hit off the debut CD by Robyn, the singer not the bird. So what would you do if someone said to you, "Show me love, show me life"? What responses would teach another the essence of love? The young woman in the song sees that her atti- tude has been a block to love: "Always been told that I've got too much pride, too independent to have you by my side." However, she "never thought I would meet someone like you," and asks her new boyfriend to "show me love and what it's all about." I suspect the song refers to romantic love. How- ever, love is more than romance. It is also commit - ment, trust and open-hearted vulnerability. Consider these important ways of loying: 1. Be observant. Many times, opportunities to be loving toward others spontaneously appear. You notice a classmate struggling to get a program to run on the computer. Sure, class is over, and it's time to meet your friends in the cafeteria. Forgoing this social time to be of service to a classmate brings love into his or her life. of rough language. The USCC classification is A-lII adults. Not rated by the MPAA. "Eve's Bayou" (Trimark) Poignant drama set in 1962 Louisiana where a precocious 10-year-old (Jurnee Smollett) observes how her family is affected by the womanizing of her prosperous doctor father (Samuel L. Jackson), which cul- minates in a violent tragedy. Writer-director Kasi Lemmons' beautifully lyric tale probes human failings, though the results are marred by the action's melodramatic treat- ment. Mature theme of adultery, fleeting sexual encounter, brief violence, intermittent rough lan- guage and profanity. The USCC classification is A-Ill -- adults. The MPAA rating is R restricted. "I Love You, I Love You Not" (Avalanche) Wispy portrait of a bookish high school student (Claire Danes) whose emotional inse- curities get in the way when she begins dating the school's heart- throb (Jude Law), despite the unconditional moral support of her loving grandmother (Jeanne Moreau), a Holocaust survivor. Director BiRyHopkins tends to sen timentalize the problems of adolescence as well as the stu- dent's grappling with her Jew- ish identity, and the result is dis- appointingly superficial in its reliance on glossy visuals and slick melodramatics. Stark Holocaust images, sexual innu- endo, occasional rough lan- guage and an instance of pro- fanity. The USCC classification is A-III -- adults. Not rated by the MPAA. "Mad City" (Warner Bros.) Dreary drama in which a fired museum guard (John Travolta) impulsively takes his boss and visiting children hostage, then unwittingly allows an ambi- tious TV reporter (Dustin Hoff- man) to manipulate the situa- tion to advance his flagging career. Director Costa-Gavras offers nothing new or insightful in this drawn-out tale showing the media's role in shaping breaking news. Brief violence, occasional profanity and an instance of rough language. The USCC classification is A-III adults. The MPAA rating is PC- 13  parents are strongly cau- tioned that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.

Be that avenue for others. Your comments are always welcome. Charlie Martin, 7125 W 200S, Rockport, jealous by paying, a sensitive cabby (James McCaffrey) to masquerade as her lover, with unsurprising results. Writer- director Richard Mauro strings out a weak plot with a collec- tion of odd-ball characters, such as the cabby's rapper roommate (Gedde Watanabe) and transvestite neighbor (Clinton Leupp), but the result is an urban fantasy that deliv- ers a few giggles but lacks any romantic charm. Sexual situa- tions, gay stereotypes and occa- sional rough language. The USCC classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The MPAA rating is R -- restricted. "Switchback" (Paramount) Grim thriller in which a relentless FBI agent (Dennis Quaid) tracks a cunning serial killer (Danny Clover) whohas kidnapped the agent's child while on a cross-country killing spree.
