In thanks, Chicken George is now a running gag in my home. Unfortunately, the best part of the remake.

Bit off topic, I came across a movie I thought was going to be brutal to watch but ended up liking it: We Die Young

#5 I always thought that forced viewing of Hollywood crap would be (almost) as effective as waterboarding.

#8 How is this not the Bee?

The criminal complaint does not reveal whether Shelton was allegedly forced to watch the original nine-hour "Roots" miniseries or subsequent remakes based on Alex Haley’s novel.

Seriously, not the Bee?

#11 when Roots is aired, is it prefaced by, "what you are about to see was plagiarized - from a white guy"

#13 Remember the Billy Wilder movie One, Two, Three(1961) where: "... After Otto is forced to listen endlessly to the song "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini" during interrogation, he cracks and signs a confession that he is an American spy."
That kind of torture?

#14 Well, at least she didn't have to pay tuition, unlike most people in her circumstances.
