Picks and Pans Review: New on Video

UPDATED 03/27/1989 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 03/27/1989 at 01:00 AM EST


The banana republic comedy—Richard Dreyfuss as a third-rate actor impersonating a fourth-rate dictator—was a nice surprise onscreen and earned $10 million. (MCA)


A snout less original than the old Croc, it also made a few bucks less—only $108 million or so compared with $169 million—but Australia's answer to Charles Bronson, Paul Hogan, was back, as was his sweetie, Linda Kozlowski. (Paramount)


As a 12-year-old boy in a man's body, Tom Hanks struck a blow for the eternal child in us all—and made this comedy tops on the 1988 box office list—$113 million. (CBS/Fox)
