    Macy is a damn fine actor. Stiller? His movies I avoid. Almost as reliably bad as Sandler.

      Siskel kicked the bucket.

        Duly noted. Can a mod change WTC's schtick to UJ's Ebert?

          Looking at the acting credits, I can see why it's not worth watching. With the exception of Macy, I've got more chops in my freezer than any of those losers.

            Must be the reason they're all so much richer and healthier than you.

              Maybe he's a good actor but I have disliked almost all the characters I've seen....


              The inept bungling criminal in Fargo
              The cuckold husband in Boogie Nights
              The unlucky jinx in the Cooler
              and he especially makes Shameless unwatchable for me

              He was good though in State and Main

                Strong words for someone who just recently clawed his way out of his moms basement and whose company stock is only at $9. Yeah, you're settin' the world on fire. I'm living quite comfortably in the twilight of life. I've been down the path that you're just finding. My one big advantage was I didn't have to do it as a fucking Ginger! Good Luck trying to hang onto your S/O.

I'm dying here- tears running. Blue Raja- throws forks (occasionally mixing in a spoon). Furious- no real Super powers, just angry all the time. Spleen- flatulence. Invisible Boy- but only when no one is watching. Shovel Man. Holy crap.
                  There's no room at the top; there's only ONE cult classic.

                    In every one of those roles his characters were created to be unlikable, so he did his job.

                      That really has little to do with how good the movie was though. Conversely there have been plenty of profitable movies that were horrible.

                        Concur... Being jewish may get the role, but not the accolades.

                          The days of the jews controlling entertainment are numbered.

                            Agree... Their greed is their own undoing.

                                And that has nothing to do with how successful those actors are compared to you, tubby.
