Oh How Wrong I Was: Or How Did They Pass Her Over for A.O. Scott and Michael Phillips?
Well, I guess I am wrong. Debbie Schlussel is a movie critic. And low and behold the rating system she has devised. Since thumbs are trademarked by Siskel and Ebert, and every old hack uses stars she set out to find something befitting her unique perspective as a critic. And she presents, Reagans and Marxes. I kid you not! A movie can range from four Ronald Reagans (equivalent to four or five stars or two thumbs up) to "four [Karl] Marxes and a [Yasser] Arafat" (equivalent to perhaps having to pull in a third critic as to give a movie three thumbs down, or maybe awarding the film negative stars). (But then again, that film was like "seeing Mein Kampf on video". With this and with Disney turning girls into butch porn-star Muslims, Hollywood must really hate the America!)
