Personal Quote:

On Daylight (1996): As a measure of my boredom, about halfway through this picture I became distracted by a man down the aisle from from me who was eating some candy, and I tried to guess the candy he was eating by the sounds he was making. Those sounds were more interesting to me than anything going on on the screen in Daylight (1996). See more »
