If my editors cooperate, they'll be posting your comments all week.... and I'll read them when I get back to town.

I liked the movie, the only thing was during the movie the fire alarm went off 4 times at RAVE. the movie kept getting interupted, but hey we got our money back and 4 free movie passes for each ticket.
I wanted good ole gill to be in the movie more.
