I saw a murder.....
6 March 1999 | by SkyMan-2See all my reviews

I have one thing to say about this movie, and that is:

I saw a murder.............THAT'S WHAT HAPPENED!!!

This line is the greatest line performed by any actor in any film ever made. I suggest renting this movie if only for this one scene. Nothing even comes close.
