Movies Roger Ebert Hates

Ebert’s Most Hated:

From bad Elvis to Deuce Bigalow, these are excerpts from reviews of some of the worst movies he’s [Roger Ebert] ever seen…It’s not just their measly ratings — from zero to 1.5 stars — but what Ebert has to say about them that really conveys their true awfulness.

An excerpt:

Hated the sensibility that thought anyone would like it. Hated the implied insult to the audience by its belief that anyone would be entertained by it.

I was pleasantly surprised to find his opinion of The Usual Suspects was similar to my own:

Once again, my comprehension began to slip, and finally I wrote down: “To the degree that I do understand, I don’t care.”

  1. I’m reading random posts from work today. Technically, I’m working, if you call copying-and-pasting audio files from DVDs to a hard drive working. About 10 minutes per DVD and 9 more to go.

    Anyhoo, I don’t much care for “The Usual Suspects” either. I’ve seen it 3 times. The performances are fine, but why do some people love it so much? What’s so brilliant about it?
