    Even Billy Zane can't save this, but it's actually MORE comical when you put a decent actor in there with such crapitude. He's going for a hard line delivery, which actually works within the cheese. Of course, it makes all of the rest of it stand out even more--every bad line of dialog, every cliched moment, etc.

    Hee. Even the Viva-Las-Vegas moment was kind of over-the-top funny. Why can't this movie JUST be Billy Zane?

    Ha, that Billy just cracks me up. He's got to go back for his harmonica! Really, it's as cheesy and cliched as ALL of this but it just shows how a GOOD actor can make cheese work by taking it over the top, whereas with a bad or even just mediocre actor it just sucks.

    What's the deal though? In the Hemingway story it was mano-e-mano. But Billy seems to be able to take his goons with him. How fair is that?

    Billy's having fun with this crappy story - he gets to be completely abnormal. He's reveling in this bullsh--. Hopefully now that the story is picking up it will be less painful.

    "Are you guys dating or something..."
    Hey, that was close to a "Bwaah"!

    Corinne is doing better in some scenes than others. She's better with the "comedy", such as it is.

    I still don't think any self-respecting Hunter-baddie would use a whole gang for something like this. Where's the challenge?

    Hey, the other baddie pointed out how unfair Billy is being too. Bad script writer read my mind!

    I will say, that scene with Billy Zane punching the windshield was kinda cool. The friend Chuck was a dork, though. I mean, didn't think to hit the brakes??
