“If you’re looking for an item on a slow night, I thought you’d enjoy realizing that Roger Ebert and Lou Lumenick are consistently the two main critics quoted in the ads for Slumdog Millionaire. Both gave it four stars and raved it as being one of the best films of 2008.
“Well, you’ll recall that their viewing of the movie was interrupted at TIFF when Lumenick whacked Ebert with his binder because Ebert objected to Lumenick blocking his view at a press screening. But obviously the dust-up didn’t interfere with the appreciation of the movie. All’s well that ends well.” — from Toronto Star‘s Peter Howell.
