THE SALINA JOURNAL encoreV FRIDAY, APRIL 27, 2001 D3 ALONG CAME A SPIDER •* CENTRAL RATED R Morgan Freeman returns as Dr. Alex Cross, hero of "Kiss the Girls," in another thriller where a mad criminal constructs a diabolical puzzle for him to solve. BLOW CENTRAL RATED R The based-on-fact story of George Jung, who started by dealing a little weed and at one point was supplying 85 percent of the cocaine in America. Johnny Depp plays Jung. BRIDGET JONES'S DIARY CENTRAL RATED R Renee Zellweger stars as a 32- year-old Londoner who smokes, drinks and eats too much and determines to reform herself and find the Right Man. Hugh Grant and Colin Firth play the candidates. CROCODILE DUNDEE IN LOS ANGELES MID-STATE RATED PG Another retread of the original formula, in which Croc pits his genial naivete and utter competence against the hazards of the big city. Paul Hogan and Linda Kozlowski star again. DRIVEN ••1/2 CENTRAL RATED PG-13 Burt Reynolds owns a racing team with a hot young rookie (Kip Pardue) and a veteran (Sylvester Stallone). Lots of crashes, nonstop action, wall-to-wall music, good guys and smiley-face ending. FREDDY GOT FINGERED No STARS CENTRAL RATED R Tom Green as a hostile retard in a movie about urine, semen, licking wounds and swinging babies by their umbilical cords. JOE DIRT MID-STATE RATED PG-13 David Spade stars as a white trash orphan who tours the country like a low-rent Forrest Gump. JOSIEANDTHE PUSSYCATS CENTRAL RATED PG-13 Would-be comedy about a girl band that is not dumber than the Spice Girls but as dumb as the Spice Girls, which is dumb enough. ONE NIGHT AT McCOOLS CENTRAL RATED R Liv Tyler plays a femme fatale who mesmerized three victims: a bartender (Matt Dillon), a lawyer . (Paul Reiser) and a cop (John Goodman). They tell their stories to listeners; Dillon hires a hit man (Michael Douglas), Reiser hires a shrink (Reba McEntire), Goodman turns to a priest. We see Tyler through three sets of eyes, and each guy imagines a different version of the other two. SHADOW OF THE VAMPIRE ART CENTER CINEMA RATED R Two films in one: a vampire thriller and the merciless backstage story of the making of FW. Murnau's 1922 classic "Nosferatu." John Malkovich is Murnau, Willem Dafoe is the ominous star Max Schreck, and Murnau knows a secret: Schreck really is a vampire and has been promised the blood of the leading lady as payment. Creepy and wickedly funny, with Dafoe providing a brilliant re-creation of the real Schreck. SPY KIDS •**y2 CENTRAL RATED PG Antonio Banderas and Caria Gugino play enemy spies who fall in love and marry. When they're kidnapped, it's up to their kids to rescue them, in a colorful, cheerful, inventive movie. TOWN & COUNTRY •* CENTRAL RATED R A romantic comedy about married couples that stars Warren Beatty, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton among others, but it's top heavy on talent and too light on story.

Book recounts flight of El Duque* By JEFF GUINN Fort Worth Star-lilegram In ' December 199-7, star Cuban pitcher Orlando "El Duque" Hernandez sailed from the communist island nation on a raft, accompanied by his young wife and determined to achieve freedom and major- league stardom in America. That was the story fed to the world, and it was partly correct. Hernandez, who had been suspended from the Cuban team after the earlier defection of his brother, Livan, did leave Cuba planning to auction ofT his baseball services to the highest American bidder His "raft" was, in fact, a climky motorboat, and there were companions in addition to his wife, some of whom El Duque disdained once he made his millions from the New York Yankees. Authors Fainaru, a sportswriter for "The Washington THE DUKE OF HAVANA By Steve Fainaru and Ray Sanchez Villard Publishing $24.95 Post," and Sanchez, former Latin American correspondent for "Newsday," present a fascinating study of political repression and financial avarice. The latter was exhibited mostly by sharklike amateur American sports agents who saw in Hernandez and other Cuban stars the kind of naive baseball talents who might foolishly sign away many of their future millions in return for help escaping Fidel Castro and communism. Readers expecting a standard sports biography won't, or at "least shouldn't, be disappoint ed with "The Duke of Havana." No, there aren't descriptions of El Duque's many Yankee Stadium triumphs once he and his friends are rescued from the deserted island where their escape vessel runs aground. Instead, this is a scintillating study of a Cuba in the final throes of economic collapse, and of the talented athletes torn between loyalty to their country and personal fortune. This Sunday in...
