Y'all know what i think D&D, FOREVER BABY, lloyd and harry is a deadly combo and can only be stopped by a crappy sequel, #2 is white men can't jump, not much of a horror guy

i didnt really know what category to put it under, and im not a big horror guy, so i just put it there. if you can think of a different category for it, then thats where it goes. it was deffinatly better than the first and third movie.

Me & My friends desided it wasn't much of a horror so we called it a priller or something like that the "iller" is from thriller, the pr has something to do with the girls that I can't mention on here.

haha I agree with ST for best comedy, I also throw D&D and Happy Gilmore into that list. As for my favorite sports movie I would have to say Gridiron Gang or Coach Carter, but there are many more that can be thrown into that category for me. That's pretty much all I watch is Sports and comedy movies.

The greatest sports movie ever is by far...The Sandlot.
