    I agree, Seattle's Best is better, but we don't have but a couple of those down here in Portland.

    Kylie, saying Paulie a milk fan is like saying that the Pope is a sort of Catholic. Let's put it this way - I made sure to stock a quart of non-fat milk when Paulie came over for dinner last week. There wasn't enough left for a bowl of cereal after he left.

    There are all kinds of Freudian issues that could be derived from that knowledge...

    Modesty, I agree with you, Cliffhanger was disappointing, especially after the first scene.

    Guess so. Pretty much all I drink is milk and water. Every once in a while, I'll have a glass of fruit juice at breakfast. And I'll sometimes drink a glass of white wine with dinner, but not very often.

    So...now that we have catalogued my drinking habits , what movies were a big letdown?

    I'll third Cliffhanger. Didn't live up to the sheer shock value of the opening sequence.
    When you're ten years old and a car drives by and splashes a puddle of water all over you, it's hard to decide if you should go to school like that or try to go home and change and probably be late. So while he was trying to decide, I drove by and splashed him again. - Jack Handey

    The made-for-tv versions of The Shining and Carrie were major let downs. The originals were MUCH better.

    - Kylie, I can't think of a single movie where the remake was better than the original!

    The biggest let down movie for me of all time is Caddyshack II.

    The original Caddyshack was a ground breaking film, with remarkable actors collaborating on a work of art that wasn't simply the best movie of all time, but was also a commentary on the triumph of human spirit.

    Okay, perhaps that was overstated a bit, but it is not exaggeration to say that Caddyshack II was best described as a train wreck.
