Just the book I was looking for. One, I've always liked Ebert. Two, I like to read good, in-depth film reviews, but only if I've seen the film. Three, I've seen a lot of the "bad" films in this book of short reviews. Four, I know which films I never want to see anyway, so reading the review won't cause nobody no harm. Six, the bad reviews are always the funniest. During a recent occupational outreach event at the local JCC, the speaker, who was a radio reviewer lecturing on the subject of film, mentioned that his employers wished all his reviews were either 1 star or 4 stars...and a part of me concurred. In-between is just so...as the Monkees taught us shades of grey. Pauline Kael's reviews of "bad" movies are savagely funny. And make entertaining reading. Ebert may not be as gifted a prose writer, but his opinions and experience will be colorful.
