    It's a must see Raoul. My favorite scene is when Harrelson's character is trying to assimilate himself into the Amish lifestyle...

    No way, everyone's entitled to their opinion. But I've seen every episode of the show and I just don't see how the character is much different now than he was earlier in the show. Maybe I'm just a mongoloid.

    It's a hilarious movie but given that it's 10+ years old you may be too desensitized already to find it a gut buster. Still worth a download though.

    Obviously, but what does that have to do with The Office?

    [SIZE="1"]Er, I was kidding. About Spencer Tracy too. I loved those characters.:O
    [/SIZE][/QUOTE]

    I was totally not kidding about Streep in Sophie's Choice. I was hoping she killed herself. [Tragic movie and story, but I just couldn't stand her]. This was on the heels of her annoying performance in A French Lieutenant's Woman.

    A few years later, my wife asks me if I want to see Bridges of Madison County and I say the only way I'm seeing it is if it's a snuff movie and Clint off's her.

    Can't stand Meryl Streep. Having said that, am looking forward to renting Doubt.

    [QUOTE=pauliec;3079556]Connie Corleone is the most annoying character in the whole series.

    In Pt 1 she's an hysterical wife, annoying wife who indirectly causes her brother Sonny to get killed.

    In Pt 2 she's a mess of a whore, bringing all these gap-toothed mouth breathers to "family" events.

    In Pt 3 all of a sudden she becomes Tom Hagen's replacement as Michael's closest advisor, which doesn't make any sense because we always knew her as an hysterical whore earlier in the series.[/QUOTE]

    at least Talia Shire is a good actress

    Sofia Coppola in 3 basically ruined that movie, she's my nominee for most annoying movie character.

    Bridges was kind of a snoozefest for me. Years ago, an old girlfriend got me to watch it. She thought it somewhat mirrored our relationship. Woman in an unhappy marriage finds charming, strikingly hansome older stud. :P

    Anyway, Stokes, if you don't like Streep, you will probably hate her more after Bridges. Her character has a cheesey Italian accent.

    How about any character played by Gary Busey?

    Passable in The Buddy Holly story, non-descript in Lethal Weapon and mildly entertaining in Under Siege. JMO.

    Gary Busey = Mr. Joshua and therefore one bad mofo. That role alone saves his career. ;)

    Perhaps he hasn't changed much...I guess it could just be me getting sick of him. I know it's a comedy, and I'm supposed to suspend disbelief, but his behavior is just absolutely ridiculous. Homer Simpson being ridiculous is fine...but in The Office setting, it just doesn't work for me, and I cringe rather than laugh at half the stuff that he does or says.

    Seth Rogen

    How the fock did this guy get crowned as funny. He's like Adam Sandler vulgar without the laughs. I actually had to go to IMDB to search on current movies to find his name and stuff he's been in.

    Guy looks like he's dipping through every freaking scene too.

    Although I have successfuly avoided watching the Titanic, I read this in letters to Camille Paglia in Salon and thought it was hilarious.

    [url]http://www.salon.com/opinion/paglia/2009/04/08/bow/index4.html[/url]

    [QUOTE]Kate Winslet's character, Rose, was one of the vilest and most disgusting characters ever to grace the silver screen. From beginning to end, she displayed nothing but character flaws and a lack of concern for everyone else around her. As the movie starts, she is a rich brat who is depressed that she has to marry an incredibly rich and handsome man because he treats her badly. Perhaps she should have taken into account his personality rather than his bank account when she accepted his proposal.

    Rather than take responsibility for her own actions, stand up to her mother, and tell him to his face that she is not in love with him, she instead decides to take the easy way out and kill herself. Now, the whole world would be better had she just jumped off the back of that damn boat. Instead, our boy Leonardo DiCaprio talks her down from the ledge, and she sees him and thinks, "Ooh, cute poor boy." So then she decides to slum it for the weekend and hook up with the cute poor kid. Then, to prove her total lack of morals, she decides that she will ask Jack to "draw her" -- naked, of course.

    So, while engaged to someone else (because she never had the decency to call it off), she decides to get naked for a guy she has known for all of about 24 hours. Immediately afterward it's time to consummate the hours-old relationship in the back of a car that is not theirs. Wow, that's a real "moral" Victorian woman for you! Of course, that is not enough. The ship hits the iceberg (we didn't see that one coming). By the way, she was on deck when that happened. I wonder if our lookout was too busy snooping on her and Jack to notice the iceberg. Maybe it's actually her fault the ship sinks in the first place.

    Anyway, our hero Jack puts Rose on a lifeboat. Of course, being safe is not enough, so she jumps back onto the sinking ship -- a prime example of great decision-making. After it goes down, Jack is safe on a door of some sort, but he has to give up his spot to save Rose. Now Rose is on the door, and Jack is stuck in the freezing waters. So in a sense she kills Jack in a slow, frigid, painful way -- sort of like the experience I felt while watching this movie. She holds on to Jack's shivering hand, telling him, "I'll never let go, Jack, I'll never let go." Of course, after a few minutes in Arctic waters, Jack's hand is no longer shivering. Winslet, in tears, continues, "I'll never let go, Jack, I'll never let go." Around then, the lifeboat arrives, and Winslet immediately lets go, "Hey, I'm over here!" Jack sinks to the bottom of the ocean, and Ms. Winslet grabs a spot on the lifeboat. Real nice, Kate, real nice: Whatever happened to never letting go?

    We then hear the rest of Winslet's life. Her fiancé loses his mind and ends up killing himself (you're two for two, Kate). However, she finds a nice man, marries him, and lives a great life. Eventually, he dies (I wonder what she did to make that happen), and we see Winslet's Rose again at age -- I don't know, let's say 126 -- with her granddaughter or whoever is on the ship trying to find the Titanic's wreckage. At the end of the film, Rose walks to the back of the ship and takes the priceless diamond necklace that she could give to her grandchildren, which would set her family up for generations, but instead she throws the freaking necklace into the ocean! Queue overplayed, overhyped and over-sung Celine Dion song (I mean, seriously, by the end she is practically screaming the lyrics -- like Celine, we get it, you have a great voice, stop assaulting us with it already).

    Back to throwing the fancy necklace: She might as well have thrown three generations of her family over the side of the ship. Could she possibly be more selfish? Well, yes, she could, because then, apparently Rose dies, and we see her in heaven. For some reason, heaven is the Titanic (not exactly what I picture paradise to be). She opens up a stateroom door, and there is Leonardo's Jack waiting for her in bed. Not her actual husband, mind you, but Jack. So she is even cheating on her husband in heaven.

    I rest my case. The vilest, most horrifying character in cinematic history. An Academy Award for playing the she-devil would be one of the greatest travesties in mankind's history since ... the actual Titanic.

    Yeah, I'll give him Mr. Joshua. Putting the cigarette out on his hand while doing the nose twitch and lip curl was Busey at his best. ;)

    Meryl Streep in "The Devil Wears Prada". I was hoping someone would clock her.

    Speaking of Sandler, am I the only one who thinks most of his characters have been pretty lame in the last few years starting with Spanglish? Longest Yard was OK but then again that wasn't really an original character concept. I haven't seen them all but what I've seen (Spanglish, Click, Chuck and Larry - I thought Kevin James was a lot funnier) all kinda sucked IMO.

    The genius of a Bobby Boucher is difficult to recapture.
