Storyline

Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review five new movies, and Siskel recommends a video. Two thumbs up for When a Man Loves a Woman (1994). Ebert thinks it's the wisest movie on alcoholism he has seen. Siskel likes it, but believes the movie should have been at least three hours in order to properly deal with the issues it raises. Two thumbs down for the campus comedy, PCU (1994). "PC" stands for "political correctness", but the movie has nothing smart to say about the subject. Two more thumbs down for With Honors (1994), a shallow and clichéd campus movie about homelessness. A split vote on No Escape (1994). Siskel found the chase picture to be silly fun despite its brutality; Ebert thinks it's just silly. Two thumbs down for The Favor (1994), a dull romantic comedy. Ebert says the movie shows evidence of having started with a smart script that was later dumbed down. Siskel's "Video Pick of the Week" is School Ties (1992), a smart campus movie about antisemitism.
