I heard about this movie about 5-6 months ago and decided right then and there that I needed to see it ASAP. And I got the chance last week at J. Cannibal’s TerrorThon here in Boston.

Remember when Jack and Chrissy were in the bathroom hanging the shower curtain in the tub, and Mr. Furley was outside the door listening. And all he heard was Chrissy saying “Get it up,” and Jack saying “I’m trying, but I just don’t think it is going to fit.” And Mr Furley was thinking that Jack and Chrissy were getting all down in it.
