His interview, a local radio personality, said, "Now, one of them is dead and cancer ate the other one's f—ing face off. Now that is winning," according to the St. Petersburg Times.

"I didn't wish that upon them at all," Sheen said. "But in hindsight, it's pretty f—ing cool."

Asked for comment by The Daily, Ebert said the review was "mild, mild, mild. … Jeez. I've praised him in so many movies," and left it at that.
