    My GOD this guy was a comedy legend both in performing and writing some of the 20th century's best loved and biggest comedy movies

    Aw that's too bad, I am a huge fan of a lot of his movies. My thoughts are with his family and friends.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Around here, the only thing an actor can do to get recognition is being gay.

    smeg. That's how you can tell YOU are getting old. All the big names for when you were young start dying off.

    Stripes and Caddyshack are my two favorites. Groundhog day is a good couples comedy.

    Well this sucks.

    Will have to break out Ghostbusters on the PS3 to see one more story with Egon.
