Movie Review by Movie Addict
May 11th, 2007

Makes you want to go back and kick some a**!

We go from the worst of 1988 to the best of 1988. Forget what the Academy Awards said, this was the film to see for the year. It had the best direction (Alan Parker ), the best cinematography (Peter Biziou), the best acting(Gene Hackman and Frances McDormand), the best writing (Chris Gerolmo), and the best music (Trevor Jones).

Frank Bailey (Michael Rooker): Now you listen here, you cornholin' f*cker. You tell your queer-loving n*gger bosses that they ain't never gonna find those civil rightsers! So you might as well pack up and go back where you came from and...

Anderson (Hackman): Now you listen here, Sh*tkicker! Don't you go confusin' me with some whole other body. You must be thinking' with your d*ck if you think we're gonna just walk away from this. We're gonna stay 'till this gets done.


Clayton Townley (Stephen Tobolowsky): THEY! They hate Mississippi! They hate us because we represent a shining example of successful segregation. These Northern students, with their Communist, atheist bosses, and their wish to destroy us this week, has taken a terrible blow. This week, their cause has been crippled. This week, these federal policeman you see around here prying into our lives, violating out civil liberties have learned that they are powerless against us if every single Anglo-Saxon Christian one of us stands together!

They just don't write dialog like that anymore!
