'Siskel & Ebert' bloopers and insults: 'Did you know that for Gene, speech is a second language?'

Posted on

Like all couples in a long-standing relationship, the professional one between Roger Ebert and the late Gene Siskel could be contentious at times. Which is a polite way of saying sometimes they really annoyed each other. This compilation of At the Movies bloopers shows a very funny, aggressive side to both men. They snap at each other’s grammatical errors, taste in movies (thumbs down for Full Metal Jacket; thumbs up for Benji the Hunted), and throw in some fast-food insults.

(Warning, some language saltier than your popcorn):

The thing is, they also make some good points about movie criticism in the midst of all this. These clips make me like these men even more.

How about you?
