Let's hope not. This dog isn't worth renting on video, let alone driving to a theater for. First-time director Peter M. Cohen (lamely) explores modern- day sexual politics. There's nothing wrong with that. "Sex in the City" and "American Pie" covered the same terrain. They also featured things such as plot, humor and semi-competent actors, elements almost totally absent in " Whipped Four friends— Wall Street bro- ker Brad (Brian Van Holt), beatnik writer Zeke (Zorie Barber), aspir- ing actor Jonathan (Jonathan Abrahams) and married guy Eric (Judah Domke) meet weekly in a local diner.

Fresh faced Kansas cutie, upon losing her no good hus- band, heads for California and her true love. Meanwhile, another man, freshly enamored by said cutie, follows one step behind. Doesn't it sound like a Meg Ryan romantic come- dy directed by Nora Ephron? Your mother would love it.

He is a senior majoring in business sports management. At first glance, he blends right in with the other blond-hair, blue-eyed athletic type you are sure to encounter regularly as you joumey through life on the Wesleyan campus. However, there are three things that set Gonzales apart from the rest of those guys- where he spent his 'yesterdays'; what he is doing with his 'today' and who he has vowed to remember well into his 'tomorrow.' Yesterday When Gonzales was in the sixth grade and only 13 years old, his parents disappeared from his life, leaving him and his younger brother and sister in the custody of their grandpar- ents. After a very short period of time, the grandparents were unable to care for the three children and placed them in the Masonic Home, a privately funded facility for chil- dren whose families can'...

Sports The Rambler August 30, 2(XX) 5 Women's soccer gets personal with Carlos Carlos Medina With a record of 3-4 and a lack bf home games for a week, I felt it was about time to let everyone know what live learned while cov- ering the Wesleyan's women's soccer team. I felt that while these hard- working women are quite interesting to those who know them, they remain a mystery that only Sid- Richardson dwellers know of. I believed that it was my duty to dis- play their personalities and show people what these women are all about on the field as well as off. "Who's got superstitions?" I asked as I began to pose questions to them as a group. Superstitions are great for showing who is a bit quirky or even who simply has issues. Sophomore forward Ally JVIacdowell was the first to confess. She admitted that, "I used to wear the same sports bra for every game," which I could personally relate to. I mean, not a sports bra, but I've worn the same stuff before. Freshman Midfielder Stephanie ...

Sports The Rambler September 27, 200Q «a: n/\ • i or> id- Rams rout St. Mary's and Lincoln david Slater STAFF WRITER Wesleyan played host to St. Edwards University, September 17. Historically they have always been a strong team and they proved to be too much for the Rams this time around. From the start Wesleyan was caught on the back foot. The kickoff resulted in an early goal for the opposition before most of Wesleyan's team had touched the ball. The next 30 minutes were to prove difficult for the Rams, conceding a further two goals before they really found their rhythm. The score remained 3-0 at halftime. After the interval Wesleyan seemed to find a way to hold the St. Edward's attack. This led to a far more even second half, with the Rams in search of a goal to get themselves back in the game. Despite fighting hard, in an effort to claw themselves back into contention, Wesleyan could only manage the one goal in the second half, whilst St. Edward's also managed to add to their...

Almost Famous is the perfect Cinderella film for today's overachieving bookworm. It is a story of a 15-year-old kid who is aspiring to be a journalist, and finally gets his chance after Rolling Stone comes across an article he wrote for some local rock magazine. Patrick Fugit plays William Miller, the shy teen who "comes of age" while on tour with a rock band called Stillwater. Along the way he learns that friendship and journalism don't mix well. The movie also features Frances McDormand (Fargo) as his overpro- tective mother. The movie is set in 1973, a time when classic American rock was having to compete with disco and new age artists like Dav...
