Roger Ebert And Some Not So Great Movie Reviews
Movie critic Roger Ebert passed away the other day.
Ya’ gotta admit, that’s a pretty sweet gig! (One that Buzz Adams and Mando “The Monster” Medina would kill for!) Over the years, he (and his partner Gene Siskel) were paid to watch zillions of movies. Let’s face it though, they weren’t exactly all ‘winners’.
As for the “not winners”; Eberts’ reviews could be funnier than the movies themselves sometimes! I found a list of some really good (translation, “smartass”) ones online earlier. Here are a few of them.
Armageddon: “No matter what they’re charging to get in, it’s worth more to get out.”
The Brown Bunny: “I had a colonoscopy once, and they let me watch it on tv. It was more entertaining than The Brown Bunny.”
Mr. Magoo: “There is not a laugh in it. Not one. I counted.”
Saved my favorite one for last…….
Masterminds: “I stopped taking notes on my Palm Pilot and started playing the little chess game.”
I can’t wait for his review of the afterlife!
