GENE SISKEL RELEASE: 12/15/89 TAKE 4 OF 4|
UNCLE BUCK. John Candy stars as a gross uncle asked to
baby-sit his brother's three suburban children for a week.
Predictably, the kids are first offended and then take a
liking to the buffoon. For his part, we are supposed to
believe that the uncle is domesticated by the kids.
Writer-director John Hughes fills his fairy tale with all
sorts of oddball touches. The movie could use more of them.
PG. 2 1/2 stars.
