[Caiman is complaining to his superiors via cell phone]
Charles Caiman, WIDF Anchor:
I am grateful for the fact that we are getting a new set. I know that represents a commitment on the part of management. Here's what I don't understand: why we're the only station in town that doesn't have the Korean grocery hold-up as our lead. I mean, what's our lead? Rain, again! It's stupid. I know, the pressure's at the parties you go to is that we're the classy station. I'm sorry, I just don't give a rat's ass about a war in some ...

What were some of you expecting? Shakespeare? Tennesee Williams? Its a movie about a giant lizard in New York - just accept it for what it is! Its entertainment and no more - and on that level (at least for me) it works just fine! Its's not "realistic" enough? Again, how realistic is a giant lizard supposed to be? It's a FANTASY movie! Besides, I thought the special effects were pretty impressive! And its not as if the ORIGINAL Godzilla movies were good, with their actors in rubber suits and laughable, ridiculous "monsters" (gamera, mechagodzilla, etc etc)- the Godzilla in THIS movie was an animal, not a monster driven by a need to destroy things! I didn't think Matthew Broderick was bad at all - although I DID find Animal's girlfriend extremely irritating with her shrill voice! Really, I didn't think this movie was bad at all - no, its not a profound meaningful work or art, but then who expected it to be? It's an enjoyable diversion - that's all anyone should expect!
