Father Eight: Yes, that's him. He was much younger back then. But, there's one problem. It seems that he doesn't like women.
Kin: [shocked] What? Holy shit! He's gay?
Father Eight: [covers his mouth] Why don't you just get a bullhorn and announce it to the world?

Great Movie
4 December 2004 | by buffylover1985See all my reviews

This movie rocks! * The jokes are genuinely funny, and have quite broad appeal. The action at the end is gloriously over the top and the performances are excellent. The plot is quite clever and irreverent. One of the most positive elements of the films is the portrayal of gay characters. Apart from one quite distasteful scene involving a doctors checkup the gay characters are presented as real people not stereotypes and can even kick butt if the need arises. Hollywood take note this is how it should be done . ****/*****
