Topper Harley: Nice place.
Ramada Thompson: It’s okay. The only problem is I have a nosy landlady. Well, I guess this is goodnight.
Topper Harley: I don’t want to go back.
Ramada Thompson: You don’t have to. I don’t want to be alone. And by the way... I can go all night, like a lumberjack!
Topper Harley: What about your landlady?
Ramada Thompson: You can do her too.

Admiral Benson: Gentlemen, we’ve waited a long time to hear this. In exactly five hours and 17 minutes, we hit the enemy toast.

Lt. Commander Block: I think that’s the enemy coast, sir.

Admiral Benson: Huh? Coast? That’ll take a little more planning. But it doesn’t matter. Our assignment is to knock out the nuclear-weapons plant at Falafel Heights. The plant goes on line in 12 hours and is heavily defended. Now, if you have trouble hitting your objective, your secondary targets are here and here: an accordion factory and a mime school. Good luck, gentlemen. Blink, take over. Oh, there’s one more thing. (admiral gets accidentally hit by a metal pipe with a loud ringing sound). I’ll get that. It’s probably for me.

I think Charlie is more into raunchy porn stars and hookers than Virgins. A shy little virgin doesn’t seem his type.

Every couple years, I break out my copy of Gettysburg. It really is very authentic in a number of areas esp in reviving the legend of Joshua Chamberlain and the 20th Maine. A true national hero, who was forgotton until his autobiography went into the public domain in the 40s.

BUT....and here it the big BUT...Everytime Sheen comes on stage playing Robert E. Lee, I have to laugh. He’s as believeable in that part, as I would be playing Hamlet.

The worst, absolutely worst. THe dialogue is nicely crafted, so it lacked the actor. Did they go by his height? How did they choose him? Awful....absolutely awful. Like William Shatner singing McCarther Park...

I wonder how many people picked up on something Ghaddafi did a few weeks ago. He fully armed his people.

I guess that puts things clearly in perspective. Take guns away and anyone can control you.

I have to agree with you; Sheen was horribly miscast, but I really liked Jeff Daniels's portrayal of Chamberlain. I personally prefer the prequel Gods and Generals...Robert Duvaal really brought the Lee Character to life.

As an aside, I graduated from Gettysburg College the year they started filming the movie. My barber was an extra, and is quite obvious in Pickett's charge :-)

Thank you for the reply.

Sheen cheapens the whole movie. The rest of the characters were great.

The depiction of Gettysburg was very accurate. Lee’s dialogue too, was accurate, but they put the words in the mouth of a childlike actor. Sheen doesn’t come across as Lee because he’s not believeable to say the least.
He appears to young...to naive...

The script is what saved the movie from disaster Sheen.

Around the time after or before WWI a book came out, 50 of Maines most famous people. Chamberlain was not listed.
He lay in obscurity until his children neglected to renew the copywright of his autobiography. THen being in the public domain, he had a renaissance when in 1960 you had the rebirth of Civil War memorabilia and books.

Then he’s featured in the US Army Leadership Manual along with Patton and others, in fact, he’s the number one example of what a commanding officer should be like.

Sheen’s portrayal lacked the depth of Lee’s character.

Yep...going through ROTC at Gettysburg College, Chamberlain was a veritable demigod. I think he was pushed in both ROTC and West Point because of his embodiment of the “soldier-scholar” ideal (apart from his outright heroism and leadership on the battlefield.)
