Siskel & Ebert Go Door-to-Door

Roger Ebert, who passed away last week, had been planning a redesigned website that has now launched. Besides looking pretty cool and being full of information, it is a nice tribute to Ebert’s work and life.

In honor of Roger Ebert, our funny-video-of-the-week looks back to a 1996 episode of David Letterman’s Late Show where Letterman is joined by Gene Siskel and Roger Ebert as they go door-to-door in New Jersey. While we especially miss the great movie knowledge and brilliance of both Siskel and Ebert, we should not forget that they were often pretty darn funny too. Check out the video.
