I always thought this was a most excellent title for a movie, though I never actually watched it.

I disagree.  I think he, like many, gets better over the years.  I dislike his earlier works.

I've never seen the movie. I tried out the book. I wanted to like it, but it really didn't impress me.

I knew many a junior high girl who rented this movie thinking their favorite teen heartthrob would once again steal their love only to find out his character is functionally retarded, which somewhat dampened the fires of lust.

I enjoyed the movie when I saw it, but that was eight or nine years ago.


Blessed Nazarius practiced the ascetic life. His clothes were tattered. He wore his shoes without removing them for six years.
