Quotes

Larry Douglas: [dancing together] Are my medals cutting into your boobs?
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Shakespeare or Marlowe?
Larry Douglas: Cathy, you have to know how I feel about you, especially when we dance so goddamn close.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Actually, maybe we should just sit down.
Larry Douglas: [sitting down] I don't know why you're so annoyed. That's one of the nicest compliments a man could pay a woman.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Strange, but I feel you're the only man that can come up with it any time day or night.
Larry Douglas: Only with you.
Catherine Alexander Douglas: Oh yeah. What are you packin' there, a Louisville Slugger?

Time capsule material
25 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

During the summer of '77, I didn't get to see as many movies as I had been used to seeing the past three years. The only other movie I saw that summer was "Star Wars."

So here I am, 17 years old, and I go to this with my Grandmother and an aunt, cause, lets face it, this is what is a classic 'chick flick'. I dislike that expression cause it makes it seem like you have to be a woman to gain any enjoyment, and the only movie I'd personally attach that label to is "Thelma and Louise." Just cause the main character of a movie is a woman does not mean its not about a human being who is completely unbelievable.

Anywho, I saw this again last week, and it may as well be 900 years old. They don't make trash like this anymore, but maybe that's because they don't write trash novels anymore. Gone are Harold Robbins, Jackie Susann and the author of this, Sidney Sheldon. We have Jackie Collins, but her stuff ends up on television (I think). Why has the world given up on the trash novel, the one you read on the beach or on a plane?

This has it all, like the master checklist..epic length, betrayal, a lot of over- and under-acting, revenge, nudity, sex, self-abortion, international settings, a trial, an actress, a firing squad, a bitch, a virgin, a colorless leading man and even a surprise ending. 8/10.
