Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert review five new movies. A split vote on The Newton Boys (1998). Siskel enjoyed the somewhat quiet and muted gangster picture, but Ebert thought the energy level was way too low. Two thumbs way down for the "agonizing" non-comedy, Meet the Deedles (1998). Siskel says his "thumbs down is not just a movie review: It's a public service." Two thumbs down for The Proposition (1998). The critics are shocked that so many big names signed on to this "ludicrous melodrama". Two thumbs up for A Price Above Rubies (1998), a drama about Hasidic Jews. They agree that Renée Zellweger's performance overcomes the movie's weaknesses. Two thumbs down for Edward Burns's No Looking Back (1998), which looks at the relationships between men and women, but doesn't seem to know women very well. Written by J. Spurlin

Did You Know?


Gene Siskel: Our next film is "Meet the Deedles". And boy, is this an annoying experience to the point that from now on, possibly for the rest of my life, I may have a negative physical reaction to hearing the word... well, it's the title word in the film.
Roger Ebert: Deedles?
Gene Siskel: Ooh, Roger, don't! Now, see now, he knows he can control me. So he's gonna start liking this picture.
Roger Ebert: Deedles! Deedles!
Gene Siskel: Stop it, Roger.
