8 The Rambler October 18, 2000 Matthew Smith STAFF WRITER Filmwise, we've seen our share of dogs this year. While Best in Show features dogs aplenty, it is, happily, no dog itself. The film, written and directed by Christopher Guest, also responsible for Waiting for Guff man and This is Spinal Tap, is arguably the year's most comic treat. Best in Show, which employs most of the Guffman cast, is a mock documentary of dog shows. Dogs aplenty appear, guaranteeing every- one will say "awwww" more than once. Cute as they are, the dogs aren't really the point, however; the dog owners and dog show organizers supply the film's humor. Guest's humor is biting and dead on, but never meanspirited. The characters are buf- foons to both laugh at and like. Uber yuppie couple Hamilton (Michael Hitchcock) and Meg Swan (Parker Posey) take their weimaraner to the doggy psychia- trist to prepare him for the big show. Hamilton spied Meg reading an LL Bean catalogue in a Starbucks across the street from ...

It gives stu- dents something to talk and speculate about for the day and keeps the maintenance crew up to their elbows in bubbles for hours. It is also completely unoriginal and boring! After it happened for the third time since I enrolled at Wesleyan, I began a yearlong quest to discover the greatest practical jokes our professors and administra- tors pulled when they were in college. It has been an interesting journey, one that might make you see your professor in a new light. Without fail, everyone who had a story to tell underwent this amazing transformation when 1 asked about his or her greatest practical jokes. Their eyes glazed over as they stared off into space, traveling ...

In recent games against St. Edward's and Incarnate Word, the team has suffered slender 1-0 defeats. Although close to reversing these results, the Rams have been unable to relocate their form of the early season, which saw them race to a record of 7-2. The team traveled to Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls on Oct. 20 to go head to head with a team that has a good chance of making the NCAA tour- nament. Wesleyan, depleted by injuries, was looking for its first win in October and started the game well with ...

6 The Rambler October 25,2000 y Pay It Forward is not worth paying the price of admission Matthew Smith STAFF WRITER Pay it Forward represents lowest common denominator cine- ma at its most crass. Everyone responsible for the film should feel deep shame. The real shame, how- ever, is that the film just may hit huge. On the surface, Forward extols a message difficult, if not impossible, to fault. In a nutshell, seventh grade teacher Eugene Simonet (Kevin Spacey) chal- lenges his students to make the world a better place. Student Trevor McKinney (Haley Joel Osment) meets Simonet's challenge, developing the pay it forward concept. The chain letter styled concept is simple: perform three favors for three strangers who, instead of pay- ing you back, pay forward by per- forming three more favors for three more strangers. Yes, such selfless acts of kind- ness sound Utopian, but they also sound inspiring. So far, so good: A story con- cerning such a noble idea could probably make a great fi...

e Sports The Rambler October 25, 2000 5 Men's soccer stops the slide David Slater STAFF WRITER • After experiencing a poor run of results that saw the men's soccer team slip from a record of 7-2 to under 500, the Rams were anxious to turn it around with a trip to San Antonio. They trav- eled on Oct. 26 to compete in two matches in as many days against Incarnate Word University and St. Mary's University respectively. Incarnate Word have proven them- selves to be a solid program having reached the dizzy heights of number three in the region. They also inflicted a close 2-1 defeat upon Wesleyan when the two teams met in Fort Worth earlier in the season. The game again proved to be a close one as both teams fought hard early on with the game locked at 0-0 approaching halftime. Seconds before the interval UIW managed to break the deadlock with a goal resulting from a cross played in from the byline. In the second half it was again the same story. The Rams were proving that they can easil...

Many times these things become expected on a first date. When two people go out for the first time, it can be any- thing— from a scary mistake best forgotten to a very enjoyable evening that sparks a romance destined to last for years to come. Unfortunately, all too often first dates abound with awkward silences, worries about saying something offensive and unspoken questions oi who will pay for what. Of course, there is always the biggie, "Will there be a kiss at the end of the night?" Where should you take your date instead of the traditional, expected spots? I ventured out to a place on the outskirts of Cedar Hill called Ellen's Fairway Amusement Center. This is a great setting for a first date. It provides an entertaining and ...

Sorry, Mrs. Hara. Although I'll concede that this could be annoying to some people, 1 don't think that I am the only one who operates this way. Freshman education major Renetta Patterson said. "Unless an assignment interests me a lot, 1 will usually wait until the night before, or the hist possible time 1 have." Don't feel bad. Renetta.
