5. I first saw it shortly after my second daughter was born.

As you can imagine, I didn't exactly enjoy the scene with Mr. Joyboy and the baby......

13. I regained my appreciation for the movie when my kids were older.

Gotta love Liberace as the casket salesman.

7. What is this, a Phillip K. Dick novel ?

He's the only person I've seen use the word "thenatogenic" -- that is, "creating death".

Of course, he used it in a misogynistic way -- after three divorces and mental issues, he had slid pretty far downhill.
