“This is unbelievable.
“Imagine the gall of the United States to make ILLEGAL entry and ILLEGAL employment in the United States felonies. I mean, it’s not like these illegal immigrants are breaking the law, right?

Mickey: I don’t think I’d make a good priest.
Maya: Why not?
Mickey: Well, for starters, I’m very judgmental, so I wouldn’t hear confessions very well.
Maya: Ok …

Grumpus and I saw this movie last Saturday and enjoyed it very much, thank you. Enough so that we’re tracking box office numbers again. After the obligatory rant on Mr. Lee’s flirtation with pretentiousness, down to his calling a movie a “joint”, we agreed that we both found his 2003 film engaging and compelling. I caught the beginning on cable and couldn’t stop watching.
Anyway, this new one has the same insistent quality that keeps you hooked. I couldn’t stop wondering how it would end, and had a big smile on my face when it did.No comments

So now we ask the chicken-and-egg question: what came first, the grump or the lawyer?No comments
Maya: What do you think would happen in a Clint Eastwood-Chuck Norris showdown?
Mickey: I hate to say it, but Clint Eastwood would be dead.
Mickey: Yeah. I mean he’s scary and intimidating, but he doesn’t have mad martial arts skills like Chuck Norris.No comments
