The history of "At the Movies", the television program that reviews films:
Siskel and Ebert: One Jew, one gentile. The dream team of film criticism. Thumbs are raised. Thumbs are lowered. Definitely watchable.
Ebert and Roeper: Two gentiles. Pretty watchable.
Roeper and whoever replaced Ebert the given week: One gentile, the other varies. Sometimes watchable.
Lyons and Mankiewicz: Who? Yes, Lyons and Mankiewicz. That's who is hosting "At the Movies" now. Two Jewish guys named Ben. Completely, utterly unwatchable.
So is there a formula here? We would think that if one Jew is good, two would be better... but that's clearly not the case.
Well, there doesn't have to be a formula. It's just easier to say that it all went downhill after Siskel.
