What do you call a gay basketball player?
This movie's fifteen minutes of shame should've been up after the third joke.
LOL....a supposedly great film, 10 Academy awards at stake, millions of dollars spent telling us what a classic this 'movie' truly is; and the reality is that the 'little' people see right through the whole charade, and are declaring that the emperor has no clothes.
This is the funniest gawdam thing I've read this year. Good for Gonzaga.
