Poodle owners invited to
put on a French accent

During Hawaii's annual celebration of all things French, the Royal Hawaiian Shopping Center will be hosting a French Festival Poodle Contest and Parade beginning 6:30 p.m. Oct. 23.

Dress up your pooch and don't forget to get glammed up yourself.

Prizes will be awarded for the best poodle personality, best poodle costume and best owner-poodle look-alikes. Winners will receive $50 RHSC gift certificates, and if you're a good boy or girl, maybe your pooch will share the prize with you.

The event takes place at the Fountain Courtyard Stage. And stick around after the contest, when all poodle contestants go for a walk through the mall during a French Mardi Gras Poodle Parade.

All French poodles are eligible for the contest, which is free to enter. Call 955-0228 to sign up.


Coming to the big screen


Rated R
When Sgt. Dutch Van Den Broeck (Harrison Ford), a Washington, D.C. police officer in the division of Internal Affairs, discovers that his wife Peyton (Susanna Thompson) was a passenger on a fatal flight bound for Miami, he realizes that she had been having an affair -- with Cullen Chandler (Peter Coyote), the husband of congresswoman Kay Chandler (Kristin Scott Thomas). But Dutch is unable to convince Kay of the truth until the two follow the lovers' tracks to Miami. Meanwhile, the media has caught wind of the adulterous liaison and that could mean trouble for Kay's re-election campaign. And Dutch finds himself caught up in the antics of cops behaving badly. When Dutch and Kay find themselves drawn to one another, the attraction seems driven as much by desperation as it is by desire.

Rated PG-13
When you're a Superstar, the whole world puckers up. Based on Molly Shannon's popular "Saturday Night Live" nerdy Catholic schoolgirl character, "Superstar" follows Mary Katherine Gallagher's quest for a kiss as perfect as the ones she's seen in the movies. Handsome Sky Corrigan (Will Ferrell) won't pay lip service to her dreams. But when Catholic Teen Magazine sponsors a dance contest at Mary Katherine's school (Grand Prize: an all-expenses paid trip to Hollywood plus movie a walk-on!), Mary Katherine sees a way to make her fantasies come true.
