  • show Description
  • Welcome to the Ebert & Roeper guide at TV.com. In 1999, after the death of Gene Siskel, the famous movie critic and co-star of Siskel & Ebert, the title of the hit show was, needless to say, no more of use. With the original co-star, Roger Ebert and the replacement Richard Roeper, together they continue criticizing the latest movies in over 200 stations. It is important to know that Roger Ebert spent several months searching for a replacement for Siskel, and brought Roeper on several times before making him a regular on the June 3rd, 2000 episode.moreless

    • Roger Ebert: What is the most disgusting film of 2001? Well, let's see--in a field that includes See Spot Run, Monkeybone, Tomcats, and Joe Dirt, so we got some great contenders, the champion is Freddy Got Fingered, with Tom Green making David Spade look like Jim Carrey and Jim Carrey look like Laurence Olivier.

    • Roger Ebert: Do we really need date rape, drinking, trying to lose your virginity, miscarriages and running away from home? Crossroads was enough to make me nostalgic for the Spice Girls!

    • Ebert (re: Collateral): These are characters, Cruise, Jamie Foxx and all the others, Jada Pinkett Smith, are all terrific at playing.

    • Roeper: Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid, and I don't think you'll hear me say nomination worthy anytime during this review. Roeper: (re: Anacondas) This movie looks like it was no fun to make. It was certainly no fun to watch. Thumbs down!

    • [On "The Hottie & the Nottie"] A.O. Scott: It's stupidly written, horrendously directed, and barely even acted at all; on a cinematic par with a public service documentary about gum disease or toenail fungus or chronic acne. Come to think of it, that's pretty much what this movie is, and I would rather suffer from all of those ailments at once than see even a frame of The Hottie & the Nottie again. Richard Roeper: It is...it is excruciatingly, painfully, horribly, terribly awful in ways that you actually just did a great job of describing, Tony. Nobody in this movie should have a career in movies. None of the actors, nobody who was involved in it. I think you can go to any dinner theatre in any small town in America, kidnap everybody off the stage and put them in a movie, and they'd be much better than this. A.O. Scott: And the writing and the direction--this is the kind of movie where the idea of wit is that you have a character talking on the phone, the camera pulls back, and you see that he's sitting on a toilet. Richard Roeper: And even though it's apparently trying to give us some sort of message about, "well, maybe the Nottie can be a Hottie," nobody gets interested in her until she gets her makeover, so it really isn't anything about inner beauty. A.O. Scott: It's sort of trying to do something that the Farrelly brothers did much better in Shallow Hal -- Richard Roeper: -- Except Hal remains shallow. And on top of everything else, Paris Hilton, the conceit that she's somehow this great beauty, she looks like a porn star after a really long weekend, especially in close-up.

    • [Introduction to the review of "The Hottie & the Nottie"] A.O. Scott: There are many things that you could call Paris Hilton: heiress, celebutant, and some other ones that I'm too much of a gentleman to say out loud. But "actress" is not one of them, and "movie" seems like an equally inapt description of The Hottie & the Nottie, a horror--not a horror movie, just a horror--that was spared a straight-to-DVD release just to torment me. Yes, I take it personally.

    • The closed captions state that the director of Catwoman is Petos, though it's actually Pitouf. I doubt it's a typo.

  • After the death of Gene Siskel, Roger Ebert invited a series of guest critics to come on his show. After a year an a half of rotating guest critics, Ebert finally settled on a co-host, fellow Chicago Sun Times columnist Richard Roeper.
