Vancouver for LA
29 April 2003 | by beauchaputSee all my reviews

Hi I worked on this piece of work. I knew it was going to be bad when we were doing it of course but had no idea it would be this bad. I remember we had D. Hopper for 2 days it was like being at the dentist for him, and Madsen was hilarious I remember him making the "when I had a career" crack a few times. Love those Canadian gang bangers hey, "cut me some slack G!" hahaaahhaahahaah
