Supercut of Movie Critic Gene Shalit’s Many Wonderful Puns Is No Pun-ishment [VIDEO]

Gene Shalit

Younger people might not remember Gene Shalit, the movie reviewer on ‘The Today Show’ for so many years. While he retired from the show last year, his so-bad-they’re-transcendent puns live on thanks to this hilarious “supercut” video.

We can’t decide which Shalit-ism is more amazing. Is it how he claims to have been “skate bored” by the skating movie ‘Whip It’? Or the line ‘there’s no bones about it!’ that he uses to describe the depressing drama ‘The Lovely Bones’? All great, but it’s hard to beat his pun about Eric Bana not having a “Bana year.”

This video is only a minute and a half long, but gluttons for pun-ishment should definitely be amused. Enjoy!
