Aldo makes reference to Little Anthony and his Imperial. While we take this as an anachronistic reference to the doo-wop group, he could have meant it only as a reference to the car, so it's not wrong for him. See more »
Now this guy's willing to marry you - so be nice.
But I want Oscar.
I want him more than you do. But he's on the lam and Anthony's taking the rap for him.
Thank you very much. Whatever happened to love? Whatever happened to romance?
Whatever happened to waiting till the wedding night?

Should be mandatory viewing for those who rip on Sly
This got some of the best reviews of any recent Stallone film, and after seeing it, I understand why. It's an absolutely hilarious, wonderful movie that shows one of Sly's best performances, and a great supporting cast. It was a long time before I got around to seeing it, but man, am I glad I did. I haven't laughed this much in a long time. And to those of you who jump on the negative hype bandwagon and make fun of Stallone like a bunch of lemmings, check this one out.
