    Is it just me or did Ebert completely change his outlook from one review to the other? It seems he adopted Siskel's criticism from “Gettysburg” to apply to “G&G.”

      Ask and you shall receive. Somehow they managed to sit through the entire movie. More power to them. They certainly nailed it.
