This was meant to be a "Happy Easter!" challenge.

Definitely one of my favorites, big nose. That movie sure caused a ruckus when it was released too. LOTS of backlash.

It was being politely picketed when I saw it in the theater. I knew someone carrying a sign; he seemed a bit sheepish and unhappy to be there.

Had he seen it yet? No. I told him I would give him a review on the way out, but all were gone by then.
