Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-05-06  aw1988: Right. This film is showing a distinct tendancy towards becoming silly. Now, no one likes a good laugh more than I do, except for my wife, and her friends, and perhaps Captain Johnson. In fact, most people like a good laugh more than I do, but that's besides the point.
Nov-11-06  Whitehat1963: Sharing another unfortunate name with Mark David Chapman, John Lennon's killer.
Nov-11-06  Tomlinsky: Imagine that.
Nov-11-06  mack: This has got to be in contention for thread of the year.
Dec-15-10  BobCrisp: Three decades on, <Lennon> fans are still asking themselves: <Why did he have to shoot John? Why didn't he shoot Yoko?>
