Friday Free-For-All: Siskel & Ebert fight

I always enjoy going back and watching old Siskel & Ebert reviews just to watch them spar. Those two guys just had such fantastic chemistry and a pathological need to get each other's goats. This is one of my favorite running threads.

First up is their split decision on Cop and a Half. Gene hates it; inexplicably Roger likes it.

This is referenced again in their review for Broken Arrow, where Roger actually gets Gene to change his vote from thumbs up to thumbs down.


  1. Oh my God, I loved this. I grew up watching Siskel and Ebert argue and totally miss them.

  2. "Inexplicably"? Ebert has consistently horrendous taste. Check out his incredible review of Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties:

    That said, he is a "Garfield fan" -- whatever that means.
