Volume IV, Issue 7
August 7 - August 14, 2000  
 
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T o combat the lesbian feelings they believe are blossoming inside her, Megan's parents send her away to True Directions, a camp for teens who are sliding down the slippery slope into homosexuality. Thus begins the well-directed comedy and a well-aimed satire "But I'm a Cheerleader."

"Coyote Ugly" is, one reviewer says, a breezy shambles, a constipated construction with moments of sheerest calculation and sudden bright shining moments that are genuinely endearing. A second opinion: a likable, if confused film.

Then there's "Space Cowboys," which is exactly what it looks like: a lighthearted action adventure starring four of the most likable guys on the planet.

Also, more Shakespeare from Kenneth Brannagh, more awards from the TV Eye, and just plain more.
