Did You Know?


Joel Siegel: [discussing "Jakob the Liar"]
Joel Siegel: Williams plays Jakob, who pretends he's heard on a radio that Russian troops will soon liberate his ghetto. It's not that Jakob lies; the film bends truth and historical fact for the convenience of the plot. Here's my, do I call it, my "favorite"?: Jews in a Nazi-occupied ghetto getting a lunch break, with LUNCH!

Ebert and the Movies (2000)

Season 14, Episode 19

Roger Ebert and Joel Siegel give their opinions on the Worst Movies of 1999, the year-end special where the critics get to payback the movies that they hated. INSPECTOR GADGET, MY FAVORITE MARTIAN, MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE, THE STORY OF US, JAKOB THE LIAR, FORCES OF NATURE, LAKE PLACID, WILD WILD WEST, CRUEL INTENTIONS, JAWBREAKER, MAGNOLIA, THE MESSENGER, BABY GENIUSES and POKEMON THE FIRST MOVIE are the movies that are reviewed here. This was the first "Worst of the Year" show without Gene Siskel so he was certainly missed. Siegel does fit in well with Ebert in regards to being willing to mix it up. They have a couple very good arguments in regards to CRUEL INTENTIONS and MAGNOLIA that really makes this a fun episode. These episodes were always entertaining but this certainly ranks among the best in regards to its fun level.
