COMMENTS

When critics gave "Kindergarten Cop" favorable reviews, it came as a surprise.

In the film, Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a cop forced to serve a hitch as a kindergarten teacher. You can almost hear the parents out there who recognize the mismatch slapping their foreheads and groaning, "They'll tear him to ribbons." ~ NEWRELEASES
ALMOST AN ANGEL

: Paul Hogan (formerly of "Crocodile Dundee") stars as a criminal who is given a chance as an angel to reprieve himself. Moviegoers commented: "Cute for the holidays" . . . "So-so" (Buffalo News reviewer Robbie Ann McPherson called it a "slow-moving snooze" and gave it two out of five stars).

BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES: Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis and Melanie Griffith star in the movie version of Tom Wolfe's best seller (Buffalo News critic Jeff Simon called it "reasonably nifty and nasty entertainment" and gave it three stars).

KINDERGARTEN COP: Movie-goers loved the film: "Arnold and the kids were great" . . . "Unexpectedly good" (Buffalo News critic Jeff Simon said it's as "nearly irresistible as it could have been" and gave it 3 1/2 stars).

THE RUSSIA HOUSE: Love drags Sean Connery into the game of international intrigue. Audiences: "A struggle to follow (many)" (Buffalo News critic Jeff Simon termed it an "unalloyed adult pleasure" and gave it four stars).
