MOVING VIOLATIONS — From some of the same people who brought you BACHELOR PARTY and POLICE ACADEMY comes this, a comedy about what is usually a notoriously dull setting – traffic school.

Director: Neal Israel. Starring: John Murray, Jennifer Tilly.

PETIT CON — An 18 year-old from a wealthy family spends his days writing in his journal, yelling at his family, quoting prominent socialists and trying to get laid.

Director: Gerard Lauzier. Starring: Bernard Brieux, Souad Amidou.
Rated R. 90 minutes.
WHAT HAVE I DONE TO DESERVE THIS? — This early film from Pedro Aldmovar takes a long, hard look at an unhappy housewife who has taken to self-medicating with pills and glue.
