Thank God for small favors.


No but I'll fix that. It sounds awesome.


Perhaps not. Perhaps some are from Argentina. Perhaps some read the book. Perhaps just knowing it's there earned the...

When I was younger I watched a lot of movies like Animal House and Stripes. I thought women were only good for sex. Then I got married and learned they can cook too.

I just think that when people do things like that, and plenty of members do, we get a less accurate countdown. Of course it's not malicious but it's altering what the real results should look like...

I would completely agree with that in regards to Esposito and Irene. I also see part of the conclusion is that Esposito is, in the words of the director, "horrified", by what happened in regards to...

It's cool if you see it that way. Again, my viewpoint is that all of that lost time is magnified by the fact that they do get together. If Esposito leaves Morales' house and the movie ends, I don't...

Who is the victim in this movie? It's Morales, so I believe any debate on closure would make more sense directed toward his character. Does he achieve it? I'm not looking for an answer but rather I...
