Storyline

Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review five new movies and recommend a laser disc. Two thumbs down for the phony feminist western, _Bad Girls (1994/I)_, with its comic book action right out of Hopalong Cassidy or Tom Mix. Two thumbs up for the sweet and funny coming-of-age comedy, The Inkwell (1994), which has a light touch despite some overacting. A split vote on Naked in New York (1993), a Woody Allen-esque comedy about a young playwright in love. Siskel found it forced and padded; Ebert especially liked Tony Curtis and Kathleen Turner in supporting roles. Two thumbs down for the sci-fi horror, Brainscan (1994), which has a particularly boring and repellent villain. A split vote on Surviving the Game (1994), yet another variation on "The Most Dangerous Game". Siskel calls it a strong, entertaining B picture; Ebert reluctantly disagrees because of its utter predictability. Both of them like the acting, especially by Ice-T. The "Laser Disc Pick of the Month": Peeping Tom (1960). Written by J. Spurlin
