Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert give all thumbs up to four new movies. Both enjoy The Fabulous Baker Boys (1989) for its old-fashioned qualities; Siskel emphasizes what is fresh and original as well. Breaking In (1989) is a quirky caper comedy with heart. The critics are especially happy to get a good Burt Reynolds performance after years of dumb car-crash flicks. Woody Allen's Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) is "cynical and despairing and sometimes very funny portrait of the modern world." Siskel says it distills the essence of the 1980s. They consider Look Who's Talking (1989) to be a charming domestic comedy with a potentially dreary gimmick that proves to be funny. Finally, they pay tribute to the late Bette Davis. Written by J. Spurlin
