Movie Answer Man (12/25/1994)

Q. You rate a movie with stars. The way I rate a movie is as follows. If, after the movie is half-over and I am conscious of the fact that my rear is sore for sitting for an hour, it is a bad film. Otherwise, the movie was worth the money! (Mark Dub, Warren, Mich.)

A. In other words, your rear has feelings which are separate from physical reality, and exist entirely on a subjective mental plane. I have heard of holy men who meditated for years to attain this state, although not necessarily in the place where you have developed it.

Roger Ebert
