Quotes

Gene Siskel: [referring to "North"] Well, I think you've got to hold Rob Reiner's feet to the fire here: he's the guy in charge, he's saying this is entertainment - it's deplorable. There isn't a gag that works. You couldn't write worse jokes if I told you to write worse jokes. The ethnic stereotyping is appalling, it's embarrassing, you feel unclean as you're sitting there; it's junk - first-class junk.

Great show!
11 October 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As an aspiring film critic myself, I've truly enjoyed Roger Ebert's reviews over the years and like his style when it comes to reviewing them. Gene Siskel is truly missed, and the show has never forgotten him and always treats his memory with respect. Richard Roeper is also a good reviewer and I like the new balance he brings to the show and he and Roger seem to fit together very well on the show. I'm already gearing up for the Best (and especially) the Worst Movies of the Year episodes!
