Quote of the Day (Roger Ebert, Reviewing ‘Valentine's Day’)

"Valentine's Day is being marketed as a Date Movie. I think it's more of a First-Date Movie. If your date likes it, do not date that person again."—Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert (1942-2013), review of Valentine's Day, quoted in Brandon Specktor, “Thumbs Up: Roger Ebert’s Funniest Zingers,” (Web site for Reader’s Digest)

(The photo shows Evert at the time of the release of Beyond the Valley of the Dolls--a dubious film credit that, to his credit, he refused to disown.)
