Or Tim Brown. Or Condelezza Rice. Or Regis Philbin. Or Knute Rockne, Charlie Weis, Jerome Bettis, Earl Lambeau, Carl Yastrzemski, Adrian Dantley, or anyone else.

What an ass.

Bruce Lee fighting a warrior-demon should be on the list. :P

He's been doing it for centuries. He's an immortal, like the Highlander. You can always tell when he's assumed a new identity by the same mumbly slightly incoherent feel to his music.

He's currently going under the name Springsteen. :)

I always loved the fact that The Coen Brothers used the "based on a true story" tag for Fargo, even though they completely made the whole thing up, just because they thought it would be more interesting. :-D

Aren't all slasher films based on "true" stories? :P

Patch Adams should be on that list as well.

I actaully got to meet the real Patch Adams and asked him how he felt about the movie. He said it wasn't a good movie and didn't really reflect his life at all.

The reason why he got into trouble was because he was political, but all that stuff was cut out of the film in lieu of comedy. Also, his friend who died was a guy, not a girl. The studio felt it would have more impact if it were a love interest that had died.

Got to love Hollywood.

And the Bruce Lee movie should definitely be on there.

Didn't Lee end up in the hospital because of lifting something rather than an ancient ritual to settle disputes in martial arts instruction? :D
