Storyline

Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review three new movies. Two enthusiastic thumbs up for the great technical achievement and all-around great entertainment, Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988), a combination of live action and animation that tops everything that came before. Two thumbs down for the derivative and predictable John Hughes comedy, The Great Outdoors (1988), in which John Candy and Dan Aykroyd are wasted. Two thumbs up for Aria (1987), an anthology movie composed of short films by well-known directors. Famous arias provide the backdrop for each movie, making it a must for opera buffs, although both critics agree that not every segment is a success. In the final segment, the two critics discuss the National Film Preservation Act, which is being debated in Congress. It is designed to prevent tampering with important movies, with a jaundiced eye turned directly to Ted Turner's Colorization process. Written by J. Spurlin
