This movies is a hip primmer on Senate horse trading by big money lobbyist, But it's nice how Eddie Murphy pulls one out for the Girls Of Many Nations
The Distinguished Gentleman
available now on youtube for free. if you never seen this Eddie Murphey comedy, it is pretty good.
Favorite quote from the film -> "People ask me what prison was like. I tell them, 'you'll find out'."
Good to know you got shoes to wear when you find the floor.
I think you're missing something...
Jerry Springer the Opera is a SATIRE - a biting and brilliant one at that. Anyone who is repulsed by the Jerry Springer show would love this great piece of writing. He goes to hell!
Just so's you don't get carried away!
This movie defined the change of an era. I'm not sure exactly when it came out, some time in the early 90s, I believe.
The highly potent message of this movie was that heroin was in, coke was out, just as our favorite "Dark Star" was about to fade from the scene. As well, there were scenes of drug overdose and homosexual rape as well as a recurring theme badly twisted from the bible, righteous words for a black mobster to execute by.
Johm Travolta, Bruce Willis, Uma Thurman, Harvey Keitel lit up the big screen for this one. Excellent movie it was, we all could have done without it and the social circumstances it pointed out and/or promoted.

It is all true, Lilly.
JSTO was a big hit in London, was due to go to Broadway and then the religious zealots scared away the production money. The protesters didn't like the scene where Adam & Eve & Satan teamed up against God. Harvey Keitel played Satan in a one night production at Carnegie Hall.
Now, they will produce it in Bosotn and hope that many people protest for the publicity. Anything to sell tickets, I guess.
Yikes... the truth is stranger than fiction! All I did was open the Arts section of the Boston Globe.
I have NEVER seen a forum where it's members can not start their own threads. I hang my hat at all sorts of forums and have never seen anything like it.
Two Toms Thumbs Way Down !!!!
that you were making up a funny little story for us, and is not really true-bout Jerry Springer Opera.Otherwise, am quite shocked about how low people can go.
It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine
No catagory could quite get it's hands around this topic so I settled here...
I hate Jerry Springer. A country that can produce Jerry Springer should be banned from the universe! No intelligent life there! The fact that this could be produced as an opera is mind boggling. The fact that people would plunk down bucks to go see it is even more mind boggling. I would hope people would look for more worthy causes to donate to.
So we have people willing to bankroll Jerry Springer, The Opera. For people who never saw this show, here is the concept: Springer has guests who are involved in various taudy situations which they explain when they come on the show. Then Springer introduces a guest who is at the center of their affair. Then there is a fight, usually verbal but sometimes physical also, between the guests. People have actually murdered each other because of Springer. A theme for a show might be: neo-nazi tweekers who screw each other but don't consider themselves gay. You get the idea.
Just when you thought we couldn't possibly deliver another sacrifice to the God of Wretched Excess we bring you: Jerry Springer The Opera!
the Zohan funny! Just watched Oliver Stone's Bob Dylan movie "No Direction Home" yesterday. Lots of good music. It covers from the beginning of Dylan's career up to when he was in his motorcycle accident and stopped touring for eight years.
