Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review four new movies. Two thumbs up for Soapdish (1991), which spoofs soap operas and has a sufficient number of big laughs. A split vote on the "Odd Couple"-like comedy, What About Bob? (1991). Both critics liked Bill Murray, but Siskel thought Richard Dreyfuss was over the top. Two thumbs down for the bizarrely unfunny caper comedy, Hudson Hawk (1991), in which everyone tries way too hard to little effect. A split vote on the John Hughes comedy, Only the Lonely (1991). Both critics were glad to see Maureen O'Hara back after a 20-year absence from the screen, but Siskel thought the writing should have been just a little smarter. Roger Ebert has a report from Cannes and discusses the movies at the festival, including Barton Fink (1991), Jungle Fever (1991) and Boyz n the Hood (1991). Gene Siskel chooses Jacob's Ladder (1990) as the "Video Pick of the Week". Written by J. Spurlin
