    so...do you like,..feel them crawling on you? sneaking up the back of your shirt when you are relaxing?

    my oldest boy and I had a run in with a few sun spiders in new mexico...poor kid jumped backwards about six feet across the kitchen and landed on the table squealing like a five year old girl, lmao... later I had to drag him out of his bedroom because he had used four full cans of raid to line all the cracks in his bedroom... had to put him in my bed for the night since his room was in a cloud, lol.
    cracks me up. the kid is 6'1" and 225, shredded muscle...and if a spider shows up he will jump on my back squealing like a little girl.
    makes for lots of spontaneous fun at parties though..I'm a horrible parent I guess, lol.

    Yep, that's me. He must not be as bad, though, because I have let people know that punking me with actual spiders leads to rage and violence--no joke. I would have lost my job with the state years ago by beating an inmate to a pulp. Punking with fake spiders in person? Fair play, but it will be met in kind :D

    Rush Hour Female Reboot In Development

    https://screenrant.com/rush-hour-movie-reboot-female/

    A Rush Hour reboot film is in the works, and it will reportedly feature a female-centric main cast.

    Directed by Brett Ratner,
    Rush Hour stars Tucker and Chan as mismatched police officers who must rescue the Chinese consul's kidnapped daughter. Produced for an estimated $33-35 million, the action comedy earned over $244 million at the box office and signified much-needed diversity in mainstream Hollywood. While the sequel had a much higher budget ($90 million), it earned over $347 in theaters, thus making Tucker a viable A-list star while confirming Chan’s industry relevance. For the third film, the numbers balanced out, as Rush Hour 3’s revenue essentially doubled its $140 million budget.

    A Rush Hour 4 film is reportedly still happening, at least according to Tucker: "Jackie Chan wants to do it, I want to do it, the studio wants to do it, so we’re trying to get it together."

    ---------------------------------------------

    So lazy.

    Why write a buddy female cop movie when you can just change the genders of the main characters in an already established buddy cop movie?

    SMH.

    Just like Ghostbusters, Ocean's 8, and What Women Want...

    Also coming soon - a gender-swapped Dirty Rotten Scoundrels called The Hustle.

    There’s a shortage of perfect movies in this world. It would be a pity to damage this one.

    Yeah, Princess Bride is a perfect example of catching lightning in a bottle - you don't remake that kind of movie IMO.

    Eh, the Goonies thing never saw the light of day. Ditto the Big Trouble in Little China thing. Neither will this.
