Overview

Roger Ebert awards at least two out of four stars to most of the more than 150 movies he reviews each year. But when the noted film critic does pan a movie, the result is a humorous, scathing critique far more entertaining than the movie itself.

I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie is a collection of more than 200 of Ebert's most biting and entertaining reviews of films receiving a mere star or less from the only film critic to win the Pulitzer Prize. Ebert has no patience for these atrocious movies and minces no words in skewering the offenders.

Witness: Armageddon * (1998) --The movie is an assault on the eyes, the ears, the brain, common sense, and the human desire to be entertained. No matter what they're charging to get in, it's worth more to get out.

The Beverly Hillbillies* (1993)--Imagine the dumbest half-hour sitcom you've ever seen, spin it out to ninety-three minutes by making it even more thin and shallow, and you have this movie. It's appalling.

North no stars (1994)--I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it. 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.

Police Academy no stars (1984)--It's so bad, maybe you should pool your money and draw straws and send one of the guys off to rent it so that in the future, whenever you think you're sitting through a bad comedy, he could shake his head, chuckle tolerantly, and explain that you don't know what bad is.

Dear God * (1996)--Dear God is the kind of movie where you walk out repeating the title, but not with a smile.

The movies reviewed within I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie are motion pictures you'll want to distance yourself from, but Roger Ebert's creative and comical musings on those films make for a book no movie fan should miss.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
I Hated, Hated, Hated This Movie is a hilarious collection of Roger Ebert's reviews of films that he believes should be avoided at any cost. And yet there is a certain allure in the deliciously caustic comments that make the reader actually want to go out and see these movies. After all, who wouldn't want to watch a movie so magnificently bad that its "sincere idiocy...has to be seen to be appreciated"?

    Eberts book of stupidity is brilliant!

    Roger Ebert's 'I Hated, Hated, Hated, This Movie' is quite possibly the best book about movies I've ever read. Ebert is simply hilarious when he describes how pitiful these movies can be, and, as Dave Berry says, after reading it, you almost have an urge to actually watch these movies! Yuck! His best reviews in the book are of: 'Milk Money', 'I Spit on Your Grave', 'North' (which the title refers to), 'Catigula', 'Pink Flamingos', and 'Little Indian, Big City'.

    Ebert's Funniest Book Yet!

    As a lifelong fan of Roger Ebert as well as his late partner, Gene Siskel, I laughed out loud with his funniest book yet. I'm really glad I haven't seen a lot of those cheesy movies and I agree more than disagree about his choices for his all-time worst movies.

    One of the best movie review books I've ever read

    Roger Ebert does a great job in going over exactly what's wrong with the films he hates, so much so that you might find yourself tempted to check out those films. He brings a lot of sly wit and comcial observances into his analysis, as well as films that contrast those he's actually reviewing, so the reader can get a glimpse into exactly why these films made it into the book. All and all, it's definitely a book worth keeping around if you love movies.
