There was a lass in my school who was the spit of Scorpio. A mate and I used to go up to her and quote lines from the movie but she obviously didn't have a clue what we were on about. We thought this was hilarious of course.

She left not long after that. I really hope it wasn't our fault.

Do check it out, Pres. (I've used it in a good few BCB cups and it's gone down a storm :? )



Pretty chill track. I don't remember the soundtrack to the movie at all it's been so long since I watched it.

It was one of my dad's favorite movies, and while he often had excellent taste (Cool Hand Luke, Papillon, The Hustler) I never liked this one and I really don't think there's much ambiguity to be found. In short, I agree with Dave.

Thanks to all for sharing your thoughts.
