>CRUISING: SEA OF LOVE

A routine police-vs.-psycho killer movie gets raised a notch or two by Ellen Barkin's boiling-over-sexpot performance as the main suspect, Al Pacino (a homicide detective) using the personals to catch the murderer and John Goodman ho-ho-hoing it up as Pacino's partner. One more cop role, though, and Al will have to start standing inspection in the mornings. (MCA)

EARY:BABAR THE MOVIE

In an animated feature, the francophone elephant king takes on archenemy Rataxes the rhino, more or less charmingly using guile, whimsy and the vital ability to stomp him into smithereens. (FHE)
