    The first impression of the movie is that of one silly comedy, that we've all seen and can predict the next gag.... It actually explores the human being from an original angle, whilst bringing in a bit of laughter, and sometimes, a tear. I enjoyed the movie a lot, had me thinking hard, and it had me giggling for good minutes.

    It's cute.

    Is that the one with Brendan Fraser and the nuclear bunker? Christopher walken was his dad? If so I remember that being a pretty good film. A while ago now though.

    I found it a pretty good film. I don't know why exactly, maybe it was the way it showed the big difference between manners in the 50s and now.

    The dance sequence, for some reason, always brings a lump to my throat!

    That's because you grow emotionally attached to his character, and you sort of rally with him, feeling a mix of pity and shame, and when he gets his moment of glory, you are there to enjoy it with him ;)

    candy please :)
