Episode cast overview:


Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review five new movies. A split vote on Family Business (1989). Both critics agree the half-comic, half-serious crime movie is uneven, but Ebert liked pieces well enough to recommend it. Another split vote on Blaze (1989). Ebert liked the characters; Siskel felt they were cute but didn't really take him anyplace. Two thumbs up for the David Mamet-scripted comedy, We're No Angels (1989), a very loose remake of the 1955 Humphrey Bogart movie. Siskel loved everything about it; Ebert is only tepidly positive. Two thumbs down for the The Wizard (1989), a poor children's movie that exists only to plug Nintendo. Two more thumbs down for _The Rosegarden (1989)_, a well-meaning Holocaust movie that unintentionally trivializes it. Written by J. Spurlin
