Ah, Mr George Kennedy. A finer example of world-class talent would be damn near impossible to find. GEORGE: the very word symbolizes strength, capability, goodness, wisdom. He is all things and he is no thing. George Kennedy is a man who will fiiiiiight for yoooour hooooonor. George Kennedy is the noblest product mankind has been able to produce. Any film is suddenly catapulted into the realm of "classics" the instant GK is cast. He brings to any production of aura of compassion and warm professionalism. His every move is destined to be picked apart and studied by scholars for centuries to come. Gazing into George's eyes is pure ecstasy unmatched by any pleasure. His gaze is said to produce instantaneous orgasms in even the neutered. GK: sex god. GK: human tornado. GK: avatar of manliness. Oh, there's this movie about a plane that falls in the ocean. Or something. Jimmy Stewart is also in it, but he's no GK.
IN GEORGE WE TRUST

bowleg2> I wonder if this movie will ever stop introducing new characters...
dungarees> There's something very Roy Thinnes about this guy that makes me nervous
THX-1138> Rumor has it James Cameron wants to re-make this with digital effects and a $200 million budget.
Balthayzr> Watch out! They've put in a Bad Disguise Detector.
nicklby> "That's for the hug. Now where's the booze? I've gotta fly in an hour and I'm not flying sober"
dungarees> Nice glasses, co pilot, but where's your zoot suit?
Balthayzr> "I don't wanna look at you or I may crack up at yer goofy disguise again!"

bowleg2> Ladies and gentlemen, Ray Charles back when he was white
dungarees> And why, exactly, was it necessary to pistol whip Jack Lemmon et al. Other than that it was fun?
Q> what's that noise - is someone playing $10,000 pyramid?
bowleg2> There better be some more GK in this thing. 1 minute of screen time isn't going to cut it.
Balthayzr> There is a disturbing lack of GK in this movie, isn't there?
Ironf> I've got it! Everyone will wake up with "morning breath" and they will have to bring in GK.

bowleg2> movie, please: a malfunction, a terrorist, a crazed Tab Hunter, a bit of GK, anything!
THX-1138> Dammit! I was too busy drinking when the attendant went over what to do in an emergency!
Balthayzr> I couldn't connect.
dungarees> Balth, your inability to connect is the talk of the town
BillDoor> Admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovery, Balth.
Ironf> Yeah that's it, let the guy with just one good arm open the possibly extra heavy door.
Balthayzr> I bet there's a credit in this film for "Goofy Noise Wrangler"
THX-1138> You see, I'm a doctor in the sense that I have a PhD in Education.
dungarees> When did Lance Henriksen and Richard Nixon's lovechild get on the plane?

Balthayzr> Movie rule #284 - a disaster must feature a woman crying in the backround.
bowleg3> the original Gilligan's Island pilot featured Christopher Lee as the skipper. It's a little-known fact.
THX-1138> All I know is a plane crashed and George Kennedy is gonna come and save the day by using his superior mind powers and inborn piloting talents.
Balthayzr> "Director says we're moving too fast. Slow down."
THX-1138> The movie that dares to show you what happens AFTER a rescue.
THERE'S A GEORGE ON THE WING OF THE PLANE!
