    "And last, but certainly least is Rastus, the court nigger. (laughs to himself as the other white people around him sit in stunned silence) What? Do I detect some tension? Oh. Come now gentlemen. It's a simple matter of semantics. What are we white well-intentioned liberals supposed to call you cats these days, huh? Blacks? Coloreds? Negroes? Darkies? (laughs to himself again) Jeez, I don't know. What would you call 'em Rich?"

    Jeff Bridges (Richard Bone)

    "I'd call 'em 'Sir' if I were you."

    Thank you Jeff Bridges for building the 'bridges' of equality and beginning to eliminate race and color as an issue.

    And one more thing:

    'Lieutenant Dan Alex Cutter-you ain't got no legs!'

    There are two major problems with this movie. First, even though the characters are well played, they are three highly unlikeable people: a promiscious and indecisive slob, a bitter, abusive and alcholic cripple and a depressed empty shell of a woman. which leaves me in a state of indifference to their fate and the goings on of the plot. Second, there is hardly any plot to speak of. It all ever so slowly builds up towards something, but then abruptly ends - and we realise - that the point of the movie is that there is no point. 5 years 6 months ago
