07-03 19:36

Rich Maine:

cue the can !

07-03 19:38

hounder:

so is charlie’s stiff collar more or less formal than jimmy’s folded collar?

07-03 19:39

Rich Maine:

Huber is a lot smarter than other films in this one

07-03 19:40

Mike n Rachel in DC:

I think the stiff collar is more formal, hounder (Mike) and this is the best Huber character…not as cheezy

07-03 19:40

Matt:

No good Pop?

07-03 19:40

Rich Maine:

yes Mike, he isnt a fool here like in Paris

07-03 19:42

Mike n Rachel in DC:

He’s like a caricature in most of the other films…I think the roles would be really hokey except for the fact he’s such a convincing actor.

07-03 19:42

Rich Maine:

yes Harold is quite good…unlike BB who cant be serious

07-03 19:44

Rich Maine:

coroner worked very fast ! especially late at night
