Roger Ebert (Film Critic for the Chicago Sun-Times) and Gene Siskel (Film Critic for the Chicago Tribune) would review the latest movies and have discussions covering the world of cinema.

When Siskel and Ebert left for Buena Vista, Rex Reed and Bill Harris took over from 1986 to 1988. From 1988 to the show's cancellation in 1990, Reed and Dixie Whatley were the hosts.
