For Your Consideration

"Traci Lords? Boy, would I like to grope me some of that."
- Governor Arnold Schwarznegger

- Joel Siegel, Good Morning America
"You can talk all you want about Chris Cooper in that snoozefest Seabiscuit, but until you've seen Abe Vigoda cavorting about in a New Orleans brothel - you ain't seen nothing."

"Easily the best use of Polka music in a movie - ever."
