^Yeah? I found some audio stand up stuff, haven't listened to it yet though.

I'm gonna watch this again. Also, because I saw a commercial for Duet...

Ok ok, I retract my previous statement above. Instead replace it with anyone on ET/Access Hollywood/Extra/TMZ and it will cover a lot more...

Loved it! I wish I hadn’t erased it from my DVR because I probably missed some things as my mind would stray it times thinking about how spot on he was with some of his caricatures.

I, too, thought the girl was very good.

I really enjoyed his auditorium speech at the end. A lot of irony and what I consider truth in that speech.

Saw it today. I was among those in the target audience. I smiled and laughed a lot. It was fun and cathartic.

Hey you, kid. Get off my lawn. Never mind. Just stand still while I reload my .45.

Yeah, I saw it when it premiered on HDNet Movies. I liked parts of it, and the overall concept, but felt it fell short of what it could have been. I'm glad someone had the guts to make that kind of movie anyway.

I think God Bless America is a better film.

There are two, and they take place at the checkout line, that I would like to have seen.

1. People who still write checks at the checkout counter; some for as little as a couple of dollars. They wait until the cashier tells them how much the total is before they take out the checkbook and fill out anything. They could fill in everything except the amount while the cashier is doing their job, but they don’t. In many cases the register will do everything except sign the check for you, but they still have the need to fill out everything themselves. Even people who charge often wait until the last second to look for their card. And they always have 27 cards to leaf through, often twice.

2. But my favorite: The person, almost always a woman, who takes 5 minutes looking through their suitcase of a pocketbook for that elusive change. “I know I’ve got that 63 cents in here somewhere.” There have been a few times I’ve come close to pulling a dollar out and paying it myself.

^^^ oh, yeah, been there. Not that much lately, though. Last week I almost popped a gasket when I was behind someone that paid for their food with the "Massachusetts foot stamp credit card" and then handed over some $20 bills for a carton of cigarettes...

The title was great, but the movie didn't seem to live up to it.

Yeah it was

A couple of things I see at Starbucks which can drive me (and others) nuts:

1) people when their turn to order finally look at the menu board at take a couple of minutes to decide. This often gets the Starbuck's staff rolling their eyes.

2) being no line with one person in front of you and thinking you're going to get your drink right away and then discovering the person in front of you is "ordering for the whole office".

Mine? I'm a golfer who likes to play quickly and what really steams me is guys who just stand around watching the other players hit and only then begin to prepare for their own shot. Five minutes later they're still taking their 25 practice swings, stepping off their yardage, tossing grass in the air to see which way the wind is blowing (like it matters for them), etc. I just want to brain them with my sand wedge for making my round take 6 hours to play when I could be back at home watching a great movie in the HT (see how I got my little rant back on topic?).

There. I feel better now.

Golf crowds who want their 2 seconds worth of fame.

From 550 yards. “In the hole!”

Oh, those over-imbibed idiots have a new one now. Heard some moron screaming it yesterday on literally every single shot Eldrick hit during the Golf Channel's "All Tiger, All the Time"TM coverage: Light the candle! Heaven help us.

On a side note his most recent standup show was awesome as well. The last joke in particular has had me laughing for two weeks now. Only he could have told it.
