That excuse doesn't exactly sit well with Dewey's roommate Ned (scriptwriter Mike White) or his friend's harpy-like girlfriend Patty (Sarah Silverman). Dewey has been sponging off the pair formontlrs, possibly years,while.trying 1o irake it big with his rock group. Even more of a problem is that weela before the impending battle of *re bmds competition md its $20,000 prize that rerues as the Holy Grail of Dewey's existence, his group decides to kick him out. besperate for a way to eam his share of the rent, he impersonates Ned - who is a substitute teacher - in order to lmd i gig at m elite private school. At first the job is one big recess for both teacher and class, but then he hears his fiIth-graders making sweet music duing their weekly classical lesson. With the big wheels tuming in Dewey's head, he iomulates a plan to use the kids as his backup band to win *re competition - once they've had a little highintensity schooling in Rock 101, that is.

Lopez Moctezuna) If weird movies are like a drug and lhey certainly te, then watching this movie is the celluloid equivalent of having a polar bear-sized dose of PCP inj ected directly into your brainsten with an indushial shength compressed air gun.

At first Enma Mae, with her Southem drawl, unlashionable Sunday clothes, md country ways, seems totally unequipped to deal wilh the big bad ghetto, but pretty soon she's at the top of the heap, mainly due to the Iact that she cm kick ass like John Wayne.

(Formerlv CHARLIE'S FAMiLY) (D. Jim Van Bebber 2003 93min. 35mm) After 16'years in the making, jim Van Bebber's epic Manson_docu-drama is finally ready_for public .onro*ption. Bootlegs have 6een floating around since 1992 when a workprint was screened at several' festivals in attempt to gain finishing funds. After a long battle doing it_his way, Van Bebber's undisputed masterpiece is completid, blown ufto 35mm, and poised to deshoy arthouses across the nation. Everyone knows the story so there's no need to sl,r-Lopsize - although it should he mentioned that Van Bebber's biopic goes into far fireater detail (e'pecially concerning thdrace wars) than any version previous. He also iranagc" to c,l"pturc the true ciraos oi tt'e fur-ity, their ass-backwards idealism, and aptly shows the and progrission from flower-children to baby-kllers_with a chilling believability. Using Manson s, dial"ogue taken verbatim from interviews with the Family (as seen in the documentary ]VL{NSON), Van Bebbdr conveys the horror of a group of kids gone terribly wong, with a arsenal o{ weapons and warped philosophies ihat lead them to the inevitable ilimax on Cielo Drive. A11I can say is, The Manson Family *as woith the ruit. This is the f inal word on the Mansorr mythos, and Van Bebber hopes that now the door can be shut. (Kter-La Janisse)
