* In a May column, film critic Roger Ebert reported on the popular Japanese
animated film, "Pompoko," which features a family of cute badger-like
animals, but said the film would not likely be successful in America. The
badgers' secret weapon is an ability to make their testicles grow large so
that they can crush opponents. Said a Japanese film fan, "The Japanese are
more open about bodily parts." He said kids in Japan find the secret weapon
"hilarious." [Chicago Sun-Times, 5-23-95]
