I've been thinking, okay? About how we're gonna get up out of here.
Don't act like you don't know, Mickey! The guilt! The guilt of what we're doing! Now, that man down there? He's a nice man. And he ain't got nothing around him but people trying to use him like you and me!
I know. Why do you think I got up and left?

Don't bash it, re-view it!!! Open your eyes AND your minds!
This movie, while not being a piece of cinematic masterpiece, is not nearly as bad as the rating suggests.... True, most of the characters in the film are completely predictable, but you need to look beyond the "tacky" veneer to see the true person inside. The same could be said for the movie, itself. Sure, on the surface, Nisi & Mickey are scammers from the git go, but, they've got lots of heart & soul.... And, Mr. Blakemore is not as naive or lost as you may think. He sees the beauty beneath the beauties in this film..... It's a growth experience for all involved... Learning to open up and accept people for who they are, not what they seem... Just like this movie! Shame on all of you for beating up on Townsend, Barry, Landau and the rest! Shame!!!! Give it a try.... What's the most it can cost? A few bucks?
