    The Italian Job

    How do you say "cheating scandal" in Italian?

    This would not surprise me anywhere. What oversight is there?

    This somehow reminds me of The Life of David Gale. I seem to be among the few who liked that picture.

    Yes, very few. One exception: while Roger Ebert gave the film zero stars (rare) his colleague Richard Roeper gave it a 'thumbs up.' Based on the wiki, I don't think I want to see it. Convoluted absurdities - OK, but everyone should still be alive after the sex scenes, or I won't buy a ticket. This appears to be a porno-murder flick with philosophical pretensions / overtones. Not my cup of Viagra. Or my cup of Kafka, for that matter.

    A movie on the Italian scandal - OK, I'll watch ... sex scenes or no. Nobody dies.

    Interesting. I note from the Wiki that the story inspired comedian Mike Myers - leading to the very first appearance of his character, Austin Powers (International Man of Mystery). Oh my, we're a long way from the Italian cheating scandal, now!
