Think you used enough dynamite there, Butch?
I've seen this movie a few times and it's just never really worked for me. That stupid pie eating contest scene was especially bad. I had more interest in seeing a young John Cusack than I did in anything else and he was barely in it. I still preferred it over several of the other films, though, and had it at number 8.
I would have liked to have seen more of him as well.
Good movie though. Not a favorite

Also yeah, had Late Spring at No.3 on my list, my only new watch from this HOF that I'd say I genuinely loved and would re-watch at a moment's notice.

Christinia was also at my #5. could have been higher, my whole top five was pretty mercurial except for #1 and that was VERY close when it came to #2.
