They were fighting over who has bigger breasts.
2. The Fugitive
Another film inspired by a TV show. Where will it end? Home Shopping Network: The Movie?

3. Heart And Souls

9. Birth Mothers
Ten years ago you never heard this term. Now they have a section on the greeting-card rack.

10. Free Keiko

The Mets player threw an M-80 into a crowd. Doesn’t he know you’re just supposed to be rude to fans, not blow them up?

12. Madam Heidi
Sleeping with prostitutes won’t embarrass any Hollywood honchos. Driving an American car will.

13. Apple’s Newton
They’re betting their future on this computer-message pad-fax. Add a corkscrew and a penknife and the Swiss Army might buy a few.

14. RuPaul
She’s 6′ 5”, she’s beautiful, she has a hit record, and she’s a man. Who says you can’t have it all?

15. Poetry Readings
Coffeehouses and angst are making a comeback. Know anything that rhymes with ”greenhouse effect”?
