Wow, some of my all-time favorite comedies are from this year.

And none of them are Top Secret! :(

I don't think I've ever seen all of it, just bits and pieces the million times it played on cable.

Saying this probably makes me the odd man out, but for some reason there are not a lot of films I really love this year.
In a strange turn of events, I voted for This is Spinal Tap.
-Le Chiffre: You changed your shirt, Mr Bond. I hope our little game isn't causing you to perspire.

-James Bond: A little. But I won't consider myself to be in trouble until I start weeping blood.

My friend informed that I actually didn't like Amadeus when I watched it. I always thought I did. He has better memory than I do so I guess I'll trust him on this matter.
