A normal man? For me, a normal man is one who turns his head to see a beautiful woman's bottom. The point is not just to turn your head. There are five or six reasons. And he is glad to find people who are like him, his equals. That's why he likes crowded beaches, football, the bar downtown...

Ha, just looking over my 1974 ratings and found that I only gave Godfather Part II three stars, which is a half-star more than Killdozer.

In my defense, the G2 rating is left over from my Netflix ratings of many years ago. Guess I should update some of those now.
