Overview

Roger Ebert's I Hated Hated Hated This Movie, which gathered some of his most scathing reviews, was a best-seller. This new collection continues the tradition, reviewing not only movies that were at the bottom of the barrel, but also movies that he found underneath the barrel.

From Roger's review of Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo (0 stars): "The movie created a spot of controversy in February 2005. According to a story by Larry Carroll of MTV News, Rob Schneider took offense when Patrick Goldstein of the Los Angeles Times listed this year's Best Picture nominees and wrote that they were 'ignored, unloved, and turned down flat by most of the same studios that . . . bankroll hundreds of sequels, including a follow-up to Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, a film that was sadly overlooked at Oscar time because apparently nobody had the foresight to invent a category for Best Running Penis Joke Delivered by a Third-Rate Comic.'

Schneider retaliated by attacking Goldstein in full-page ads in Daily Variety and the Hollywood Reporter. In an open letter to Goldstein, Schneider wrote: 'Well, Mr. Goldstein, I decided to do some research to find out what awards you have won. I went online and found that you have won nothing. Absolutely nothing. No journalistic awards of any kind. . . . Maybe you didn't win a Pulitzer Prize because they haven't invented a category for Best Third-Rate, Unfunny Pompous Reporter Who's Never Been Acknowledged by His Peers. . . .'

Schneider was nominated for a 2000 Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor, but lost to Jar-Jar Binks. But Schneider is correct, and Patrick Goldstein has not yet won a Pulitzer Prize. Therefore, Goldstein is not qualified to complain that Columbia financed Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo while passing on the opportunity to participate in Million Dollar Baby, Ray, The Aviator, Sideways, and Finding Neverland. As chance would have it, I have won the Pulitzer Prize, and so I am qualified. Speaking in my official capacity as a Pulitzer Prize winner, Mr. Schneider, your movie sucks."

    You can learn from poor movies

    I have been a regular listener and reader of Roger Ebert's movie reviews since 1980. Yes, I know that Roger has not been seen on TV's At the Movies for a few years. His book, Your Movie Sucks, while a compilation of reviews of movies he did not like still provides valuable insight on movies, rather or not I saw any of these particular movies. Review comments on screenplays, acting, and directing not only can enrich our movie viewing experiences but also help people who may be interested in a career in the movie industry.

    Roger Ebert's scathing reviews are hilarious. Even if I liked the movie he's trashing, it's fun to read his views. Battlefield Earth was a hated movie but for some reason I liked it. I don't understand why Ebert kept going on about how nasty the Psychlos looked. They're aliens, and they are evil. I'm sure personal hygiene ranks low with them. Otherwise that review was funny.

    Fascinating

    I found Ebert's take on the movies that he disliked interesting. He describes each movie effectively, and often with humor. You can see why it sucked, from his point of view, without a lot of effort on your part. That is good writing.

    This book was both fascinating and entertaining. I feel like I know more about Mr. Ebert, just from this one novel, than I had in the past.

    Especially enjoyable is the range of movies that are reviewed. It includes: Sundance Film Festival works, small art-house pics, to main stream movies. Highly recommended!
