Now for the answers to the Roger Ebert review quiz we had earlier in the show. We played some scathing reviews written by legendary film critic Roger Ebert and asked you to hazard a guess about what films inspired such harsh critiques.

Here are the questions, with answers below. Try and match them yourself, then listen to the audio (as soon as its up) for the answers!

1.) Quote: "I hated this movie. Hated hated hated hated hated this movie. Hated it. Hated every simpering stupid vacant audience-insulting moment of it."

2.) Quote: "I had a colonoscopy once, and they let me watch it on TV. It was more entertaining than ___."

3.) Quote: "This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels."


A.) "Freddy Got Fingered" directed by and starring Tom Green

B.) "The Brown Bunny," directed by Vincent Gallo.
