A good movie

I have noticed that this movie has a rather lame reputation but, I have to admit it, I have actually a weak spot for the damned thing. In fact, I even saw it in the movie theater when it was released but I should probably re-watch it at some point to make sure it was indeed any good. Anyway, the main reason I mostly enjoyed this flick was probably the circumstances during which I saw this movie. I... read more

Then I just spent the next thirty minutes touchin"
