"You know, I had you pegged right from the jump. Just a spoiled brat of a rich father. The only way you get anything is to buy it, isn't it? You're in a jam and all you can think of is your money. It never fails, does it? Ever hear of the word humility? No, you wouldn't."

Since it is such a classic, I really had to watch this movie at some point. Eventually, I ended up with some mixed feelings.
