When Siskel Changed His Vote


I've been honest about my love for Siskel and Ebert. They've closed the balcony, but there are still a tonne of memories left behind, including this time in 1996 when Gene Siskel reversed his thumb in the middle of taping.Embedding disabled - click to watch

The movie was Broken Arrow, a forgettable action flick as I recall, and for the first and only time in the show's history, a reviewer reversed his decision after being persuaded by the other.

Ebert was right.  Siskel was a wise man to change course, I just wish he had done that after reviewing Gross Pointe Blank.
