But I have to say, I like your stuff. It's pretty good, and most of your records, I really enjoy.
Well, we're big fans of your records, too. We like to think that "Hard Day's Night" is our "Guilty As Charged".

I've watched this movie around 50 times. Literally one of the funniest movies ever made. It would be great if it was a movie that kids could enjoy as well, but that is my only complaint. 100% adult themes and shows way too much for a responsible parent to allow children to watch.
When I was a kid we had Fast Times at Ridgemont High, and Porky's. This is a hilarious movie, and I suggest watching it repeatedly since there will be a lot of things you will catch and fall over laughing at if you understand the movie at all. John C Reilly comes into a class A acting role with this one. And deserves it.
Great music as well as amazing acting. I cannot recommend this movie highly enough. Love it.
