Ebert's Little Movie Glossary PDF ebook download Very funny and quite interesting glossary of cliches, stereotypes, and hackneyed formulas used over and over in both good and bad movies. Many are original to Ebert, who also collected many from Gene Siskel, other critics, and viewers/readers of Ebert's movie reviews.
