Scott & Phillips (Worthy Heirs)

After a disastrous year of the long-running film review show "At the Movies" (started, of course, by the esteemed Roger Ebert and the late Gene Siskel) in which Ben Mankiewicz and Ben "Give Me Fifty Cents & A Snickers Bar And I'll Give Your Movie A GREAT Review!" Lyons took the torch from Richard Roeper and his various co-horts and did everything short of dunking it in the Mississippi River to make it go out it has been announced that the torch will now, thankfully, be handed to A.O. Scott of the New York Times (who I very much like) and Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune.

Rare are the days anymore in America where everyone wins. Today is one.
