** The best known example of Ebert's law that actually involves Ebert himself comes from a [[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20050811/REVIEWS/50725001/1023 review]] of ''Film/DeuceBigalow: European Gigolo''. Star Rob Schneider took offense to an article by Patrick Goldstein of the ''UsefulNotes/LosAngeles Times'', pointing out that several major studios turned down the chance to finance the year's Best Picture nominees while financing a sequel to a crude sex comedy. After reading it, he took out a full-page ad in the ''Hollywood Reporter'' and called Goldstein a "hack" because he had never won a Pulitzer Prize. In Ebert's review of the film, he taunted Schneider and said that he himself actually ''did'' win the Pulitzer, and thus by Schnider's criteria he was fully qualified to tell Schneider that "your movie sucks". The story took an [[HeartwarmingMoments unexpected]] turn after several back-and-forth barbs in the press. After one of Ebert's cancer surgeries, Schneider sent Ebert flowers and a "get well" card signed "Your Least Favorite Movie Star, Rob Schneider". Ebert conceded that while Schneider may make bad movies, he's a good man. [[HeartwarmingMoments Aww]].

* RantInducingSlight: Filmmakers actually invoking NotScreenedForCritics as a ''[[ItsNotSupposedToWinOscars defense]]'' of their work was a sore point for Ebert. Ebert's responses to Creator/KevinSmith and Rob Schneider are two classic examples of this, and from 2005 to 2006, he instituted the "Wagging Finger Of Shame" for all movies that were not screened for critics (It was discontinued when Ebert realized Hollywood wasn't taking the "Wagging Finger Of Shame" seriously.)

[[http://rogerebert.suntimes.com/ Roger Joseph Ebert]] (June 18, 1942 April 4, 2013) was the {{film}} reviewer in chief at the ''UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}} Sun-Times'' from [[TheSixties 1967]] [[LongRunners until his death in 2013.]] In itself, that would make him important as the elder statesman of film criticism.

In 1975, Ebert teamed up with Creator/GeneSiskel, reviewer in chief at the ''Chicago Tribune,'' to present a film review program called ''Opening Soon at a Theater Near You,'' the great grandfather of the VideoReviewShow, on the local Creator/{{PBS}} station. The program went to national syndication as ''Sneak Previews'' in 1978; in 1982 ''Series/SiskelAndEbert'' moved to UsefulNotes/{{Syndication}} on commercial stations across America, as a new but very similar program called ''At the Movies with Siskel and Ebert'' (or vice versa). Unexpectedly, this made him one of the two most important movie critics in America. Because the show was televised, [[RuleOfPerception many more Americans saw it]] than read the reviews in the newspapers; because Ebert and Siskel had credentials in real newspapers in a major city first, and didn't review every movie favorably, they could be taken more seriously than most other movie reviewers on television. Siskel and Ebert's [[LikeAnOldMarriedCouple passive aggressive chemistry]] was the stuff of legend. It was often thought that due to their occasionally hostile on-screen presence when they disagreed, that the two hated each other. However, [[VitriolicBestBuds each considered the other a close friend,]] even if their relationship was competitive by nature. In fact, in 2009 on the tenth anniversary of Siskel's death, Ebert posted a [[http://blogs.suntimes.com/ebert/2009/02/i_remember_gene.html touching remembrance]] of his friend on his blog.

When Siskel [[AuthorExistenceFailure died in 1999,]] Ebert kept on the show with guest hosts until it was settled that it would be ''At the Movies with Ebert and Roeper,'' with ''Richard Roeper,'' another ''Chicago Sun-Times'' critic. This made him the most important living movie critic in America. The show ended in 2008 partially because his throat cancer was preventing him from doing most of the episodes for over a year and a half. (To do film reviews on television, you have to be able to speak.) Sadly, due to a few surgeries that successfully eradicated his cancer, [[TheVoiceless Ebert lost the ability to speak entirely]] and part of his lower jaw was removed. During the last few years of his life, he "spoke" through handwritten notes and a computer speech program. In 2010, a Scottish company created a voice similar to Ebert's own for him to use as his new "voice," using his DVD commentaries (and not his TV show, since there was always background movie noise and ''Gene Siskel'' / ''Richard Roeper'' interrupting him) and other similar recordings. Furthermore, his last "treatments" were such tough going with so much physical cost, he vowed that if the cancer re-emerged, he would let it take its course; [[FaceDeathWithDignity this eventually transpired in 2013.]]

In 2011, to replace the new ''At the Movies'' which had been canceled by its distributor, Ebert and his wife Chaz started their own movie review show on Creator/{{PBS}} called ''Ebert Presents at the Movies'' hosted by Christy Lemire of the Associated Press and Ignatiy Vishnevetsky of Mubi, which follows largely the same format as Ebert's other shows. Ebert himself appeared in a segment on the show called "Roger's Office" which features voice over narration (either with the help of either his new "voice," or a famous friend such as Creator/WernerHerzog or Bill Kurtis) of one of his recent reviews or musings.

Until his death, Ebert still wrote weekly review columns as well as a daily blog and maintained a very active Website/{{Twitter}} account, and every single one of his reviews are available on the Internet, where he was still an influential force in movie criticism's new dominant medium. He also picked up a reputation for being (depending on whom you ask) [[OlderAndWiser soft on movies]] [[note]] One would be certain to think that if one went by [[http://www.metacritic.com/critic/roger-ebert his Metacritic profile;]] his average score for the 4,069 reviews that aggregator cites him as having written is around 71 percent, nearly twelve percentage points higher than the site's average. [[/note]] or [[GrumpyOldMan even more ruthless than before.]] However, his wrath, when deployed, was [[Film/{{North}} legendary.]] He published three compilations of two star and under reviews during his lifetime; ''[[Film/{{North}} I Hated, Hated, HATED This Movie!]]'' (reviews published in 1999 and earlier), ''[[Film/DeuceBigalow Your Movie Sucks]]'' (reviews published from 200006) and ''[[Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen A Horrible Experience of Unbearable Length]]'' (reviews published from 200611).

Roger Ebert printed annual compilations of his movie reviews from TheEighties onward. Also Ebert wrote three books of essays about his favorite movies entitled ''The Great Movies,'' with these essays also available on his website in a condensed form.

He also wrote ''Ebert's Little Movie Glossary'' and ''Ebert's Bigger Little Movie Glossary,'' which are books of FilmTropes in ''Literature/TheDevilsDictionary'' form. (An even bigger movie glossary is on his web page.) They could be considered a proto Wiki/TVTropes in a sense (and the {{Trope Namer|s}} for many).

* AsHimself / SelfDeprecation: He and Siskel were big enough fans of ''WesternAnimation/TheCritic'' to bend their "conflict of interest" rule (that and the duo almost never reviewed television) and appear in it as themselves, this while taking potshots at each other's shortcomings.



* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed:
** The 1998 American version of ''Film/{{Godzilla|1998}}'' had the mayor of New York City as an Ebert lookalike. Used as a TakeThatCritics by the end of the film when his aide (an {{Expy}} of Creator/GeneSiskel) gives his job performance a thumbs down. This was because Siskel and Ebert had criticized Emerich's earlier productions. Ebert was offended not by the portrayal, but thought that if Emerich hated them so much he should have had the balls to have Godzilla eat them.
** A segment in ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' featured obvious caricatures [[Series/SiskelAndEbert Codger Egbert and Lean Hisskill]] as a pair of TV critics who are tormented by Slappy and Skippy Squirrel for rating Slappy's cartoons "two stinky toes down."

!! Tropes used by the man:

* [[invoked]]EightPointEight: One of only two critics to like ''Film/Speed2CruiseControl'' (the other being Gene Siskel) on Website/RottenTomatoes and the only one not to like ''Film/{{Brazil}}''. Additionally, he gave ''Film/TheGodfather, Part II'' three stars, his lowest "good movie" rating, but later included it on his list of Great Movies, though while still standing by his original rating.

* TheAlcoholic: In his memoirs, Ebert refers to his time in AA and the importance of keeping it private. He cautions other celebrities from making a circus out of their rehabilitation--a little mental trick which leads to relapse, once the cameras are off. Unfortunately, his heavy drinking in youth might have caused the cancer to bloom.



* AuthorAppeal: Asked in an interview why a respected, Pulitzer Prize-winning critic would choose to be a scriptwriter for a sexplotation director like Russ Meyer, one of Ebert's friends considered for a moment and replied, "[[MaleGaze Boobs]]."



* ClothesMakeTheLegend: The pullover vest-khakis-loafer combo. He hated suits and avoided wearing them whenever he could.



* DeafComposer: After thyroid cancer deprived him of the ability to eat solid foods, he took up cooking as a hobby, even [[HeAlsoDid publishing a cookbook of recipes for rice cookers]].
-->"To be sure, health problems have prevented me from eating. That did not discourage my cooking. It became an exercise more pure, freed of biological compulsion."
* FaceDeathWithDignity: He wrote several blogs about how he didn't fear letting his cancer take its course if it reappeared, because "what was there to fear?"



* GoOutWithASmile: His wife Chaz described his passing as very quiet and simple, with him just looking at her and the kids and smiling.



* JustHereForGodzilla: [[invoked]] Ebert once confessed that when he was a boy in TheFifties, he and his friends would go to see women's wrestling matches at carnivals in the hope that there would be a WardrobeMalfunction.



* RaisedCatholic: Ebert often referred to his Catholic upbringing in his reviews, especially to complain about films that got details of the religion egregiously wrong or that insulted the church. He also tended to give favorable reviews to controversial films with Catholic themes, such as ''Film/ThePassionOfTheChrist'', ''Film/TheLastTemptationOfChrist'', and ''Film/{{Dogma}}''.



* {{Retirony}}: Was a victim of it. In his final blog post "A Leave of Presence", he announced his retirement from the ''Chicago Sun-Times'' for health reasons and planned to pick a set of writers to take his place on his website. However, he planned to still review the films he wanted to review. Two days later, he died.



* SyntheticVoiceActor: Ebert relied on one for the rest of his life after he had his jaw removed.



* {{Workaholic}}: Admitted so himself when contrasting himself with Siskel; in a psychological test done on the ''Oprah'' show, the test revealed that while Ebert was the better person to be at work with, Siskel was the person more fun to hang around outside of work. Ebert admitted this is because he was so busy.
