What an awesome comment on failing to achieve what you wanted to.

Yes. A good one. I'm a big fan of Albert Finney, even though he's a whisky lightweight.

That drill sergeant was just too over the top for me. It was almost like Kubrick was taking the piss with the character.


Can't speak from experience but from what I understand it wouldn't have been over the top.

I like when joker gets introduced to the big guy with the m-60 in hue


No, that is exactly what it is like to be attended to by a Paris Island USMC drill instructor. In your face. Thing is, you don't smile or "try to hold back a smile."

I seriously doubt they strike the recruits anymore. There are far more horrible tasks they can set upon them. FWIW, many a recruit would prefer the punch in the gut.

Bruno casting for baby photo shoots and seeing how far they will go.



This snatch of Bruno does it for me. In scenes like this I wander from wonder at Sacha's brilliance, to horror at what parents will allow, to sympathy for the victims of the humor. Brilliant.

The audio on this one is very low.

But I like the scene because of the line at the end.

"I didn't ask for the anal probe."



You might expect this line from lesser movies like "Freddy Got Fingered", but finding it in "Passion Fish", we reach sublime levels. The movie's a nice watch, and this is - I think - the best line I have ever come across in a movie.
