Most of these, I didn't see. Of the few that I did see, hocus Pocus and The Village were bad. The Village wins because Hocus Pocus never takes itself seriously and it makes you laugh. The Village was humorless.
Also remember that both Ebert and Siskyo have admitted that when they had that Sneak Peaks show and they were the two most powerful film critics in the world, they went through a period of being snobs back in the 80's where they over rate some films andunder rated some decent films that they later changed their minds about upon a second viewing.

Interesting list, and I definitely don't agree with Ebert on every film on this list... some are at least "average". If I have to pick one, I'll go for Corky Romano (2001).

I actually liked Usual Suspects and Village.

I did hate, however, Love Guru. Simply awful.

Not sure which film would have my pick but this line from the Freddy Got Fingered review always makes me laugh, he was so witty:

"This movie doesn't scrape the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't the bottom of the barrel. This movie isn't below the bottom of the barrel. This movie doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence with barrels." LOL!

Currently watching Fast Times at Ridgemont High (1982) - you could probably add that film to which he reward a 1/4 stars.

I wouldn't include "The Usual Suspects" if I were you, not because Ebert 'hated it' but because it didn't elicit as strong a negative response as the others, as he said "as far I understood, I didn't care". Besides, these movies you've listed are pretty much all movies that are considered among the worst, so the fact that Ebert hated them doesn't really strike as odd or weird, maybe you should consider movies that are popular or that found an audience but that Ebert hated nonetheless. Of if you focus on turkeys, then "The Usual Suspects" doesn't really belong to the list, or you've got to look out for popular movies he hated (and there are many).
