Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review four new movies and recommend a video; and Siskel interviews Garry Marshall. A split vote on Rocky V (1990). Siskel enjoyed Rocky's return to the streets, but Ebert found it predictable from beginning to end. Two thumbs down for the horror sequel, Child's Play 2 (1990). Ebert found it to be a well-made thriller that is nonetheless morally depraved; Siskel does not even concede it works as a thriller. Two thumbs down for the family comedy, Home Alone (1990). What would really happen if an eight-year-old were left home alone? The critics complain that the movie ignores that interesting premise and instead fills the screen with cartoon-like gags. A split vote on The Nasty Girl (1990). Ebert feels it is an exercise in style; Siskel found it to be a fresh take on the Holocaust. Gene Siskel interviews Garry Marshall about happy endings. The "Video Pick of the Week" is Mystic Pizza (1988). Written by J. Spurlin
