Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet

The 15 hottest topics the week of August 25, 1995

Posted on

1 Desperado
Antonio Banderas plays a mariachi singer-turned-assassin. He strolls from table to table killing for tips.

2 Mortal Kombat
The movie of the ultra-violent computer game. As if anyone would run to see a film called Scrabble.

3 Mallrats
Shannen Doherty hangs out with no-goodniks. And the movie’s about that, too.

4 Newt Gingrich
Vanity Fair has him as a womanizing draft dodger with a working wife. Sounds like he’s running for President.

5 Teenage Smoking
One youngster told me how he was able to cut way back: He stopped smoking cigarettes after sex.

6 Sylvester Stallone
He’s bought a big chunk of a bank. But my teller says that gun belts without a shirt hurt his nipples.

7 Val Kilmer
It’s said he got The Island of Dr. Moreau director canned after three days. Kevin Costner is sooo jealous.

8 Shannon Faulkner
She’ll be treated like any Citadel cadet. Unlike the real world, where she’d also be expected to cook for everyone.

9 The Baby-Sitters Club
Seven 13-year-old girls go through rites of passage. You could hang out at the Gap for a few hours and save $7.

10 The Tuskegee Airmen
The story of the black fliers who fought against evil in WWII. Then we sent them overseas.

11 Lord of Illusions
A horror movie about a sicko cult. It’s for people who’ve never seen public-access TV.

12 Reservoir Dogs, The Director’s Cut
How different can it be? A man’s only got two ears.

13 The Ovitz-Disney Deal
The Überagent becomes head of a movie studio and ABC. In his spare time, he knits.

14 Saddam’s Son-in-Law
We have great ideas on how to run the terrorism business, but the old man just won’t listen.

15 Alicia Silverstone
The Clueless star signed a $10 mil deal. Those long couple of days studying finally paid off.
