Keeping Score in Chicago Episode 31: 2009: The Final Score

Posted: Updated:

Chicago Sun-Times columnist Richard Roeper dishes on the best and worst movies of the 2009, why Spider-man is the next De Niro, quashes his overblown internet beef with Roger Ebert and why his new book (Bet the House, coming in 2010) could land him on a reality show. Fook and Konkol revisit the year in comedy bits, a volcano of poop in the western suburbs and the invasion of Chicago-style parking spot markers -- lawn furniture and junk from the garage -- in Washington D.C. Plus, the year's final Speed Score. See you next year, people.
