Picks and Pans Review: The Unwatchables

UPDATED 10/03/1988 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 10/03/1988 at 01:00 AM EDT

>SEVEN HOURS TO JUDGMENT A gang of blacks and Hispanics murders Ron Leibman's wife. Judge Beau Bridges springs the culprits on a technicality, so Leibman kidnaps Mrs. Judge, played by Julianne Phillips, the soon-to-be-ex Mrs. Springsteen. Everybody should join in a prayer that they live down this racist trash.

KANSAS Pretty scenery, pretty-boy stars (Andrew McCarthy, Matt Dillon) and the dullest film bank heist ever make you long to hear Dorothy yell, "Auntie Em, it's a twister!"

THE PRINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA Keanu Reeves plays a goofy teen who kidnaps his tightwad dad so his adulterous mom can run off. Infantile doesn't quite describe this comedy. Try intolerable.

MESSENGER OF DEATH As a reporter investigating a murder, Charles Bronson leaves the violence to others, which leaves the movie nowhere.
