Quotes:
Michael Phillips:[after Roeper gives "Hell Ride" a positive review] Rich, the late Joey Bishop would come back from the grave and say, "Son, nyuck!" This film doesn't work as, you know, jokey sadism. It doesn't work as a straight action picture. Uh... did you... did you really see it?
Richard Roeper:I did see it.
[later in the review]
Richard Roeper:I wish I had a Chevy Nova and a drive-in and I'd go see it again.

What's not to like?, 1 July 2003
Author: Ericho from Florida of course

What can I say? I've known this show all my life. First, it was Ebert and Siskel. I'll also remember how it was when Siskel was in the hosptial and he talked, like, over the phone I think, and tell his reviews of movies like "Godzilla". It seemed to have such an empty hole in the show when it was just Ebert, with his thumbs up or down. I mean, one person's opinion? What fun is that? Then, they had a different guest star every week. Finally, it was all down to just one critic on the show with Ebert: Roeper. Basically, I have no problem with him. Just the simple concept of two critics having reviews of movies is entertaining. The same formula has not worked for shows like "Hot Ticket". I've read Leonard Maltin's reviews and there are a lot of times when I have to disagree with him. He's definitley not my favorite critic. I should start getting some of Ebert review books, but they don't explore as many movies as the Leonard Maltin books.

The one episode where Ebert was reflecting on his reviews with Siskel was probably the most memorable. Sure, I disagree with them, sometimes, but it's cool to know critics that agree with most of what you think. I liked to give a tribute to Gene Siskel for rating "Babe: Pig In The City" as the #1 movie of 1998! I totally agree with him! Anyway, I'll be sure to watch this whenever I can! A 9/10.
