Give this week a big thumb's down for Roger Ebert.

The veteran Chicago Sun-Times film critic, 70, is in the hospital after fracturing his hip.

His wife Chaz Ebert quips to her Twitter followers that her hubby hurt himself performing "tricky disco dance moves," but is "doing well, asking for a computer, will probably tweet."

Sure enough, Ebert later posted a Twitter message confirming the fracture and reporting "no surgery needed."

This is the latest health issue for the Pulitzer Prize-winning writer, who was diagnosed with thyroid cancer in 2002 and later with jaw cancer. He's since lost his voice.
