With a tone similar to the Scott-directed "True Romance," pic will follow the improbable rise and fall of Banerjee, who went from pumping gas in Culver City to running a high-end nightclub that evolved into Chippendales. After hiring a New York choreographer to polish the all-male dance troupe, Banerjee became wildly rich, as well as unreasonably competitive and paranoid. Banerjee hired a hitman to murder the choreographer when negotiations went sour. After being arrested, Banerjee died in jail awaiting trial....says Variety HERE. The script will be written by Lisa Schrager, who evidently ahs a project called GANGSTA BITCHES over at Universal. GANGSTA BITCHES...a very promising title indeed. I want to know more.

Oct. 29, 2009, 10:57 a.m. CST
Women want to control the discourse, just like men. When men can see perfect female bodies, it raises the bar...sort of like women looking at men with Ferraris. Get the joke, and the whole thing is pretty funny.

Oct. 29, 2009, 3:36 p.m. CST
Most of my friends would die laughing if they heard someone calling me "elitist." I am as populist a moviegoer as you'll almost ever find. I do like plenty of highbrow stuff, but "Tommy Boy" is one of my favorite comedies ever. And I'll admit that the flying sequences in Top Gun are awesome. That shit is guy-candy. But the movie's story, characters, and dialogue are atrocious, IMHO.
Oct. 29, 2009, 3:44 p.m. CST
Watch the scene between Ford and McGillis in "Eyewitness" again. THAT, my friend, is sexual tension. Not the bullshit in Top Gun.
Oct. 29, 2009, 3:46 p.m. CST
is the dialog really that bad though? I know people that say that shit in REAL LIFE. It's a military competitions movie. The Military isn't known for sparkling dialog.
Oct. 29, 2009, 3:51 p.m. CST
...anything to do with the combat or training is okay. It's all the stuff about Maverick's daddy issues and McGillis' classic "I couldn't let anyone see I've fallen in love with you"-type howlers that make me puke.

it's funny how rare naked penises are in movies, I'm sure they'll be plenty of manass though
Oct. 30, 2009, 8:25 a.m. CST
when I saw Watchmen the audience giggled at almost every scene of Dr Manhattan's blue penis, so maybe that's why, people just don't have the maturity to handle seeing a penis (despite the fact that every guy has seen one his entire life)

Sid: You want subversion on a massive level. You know what one of the greatest fucking scripts ever written in the history of Hollywood is? Top Gun. Duane: Oh, come on. Sid: Top Gun is fucking great. What is Top Gun? You think it's a story about a bunch of fighter pilots. Duane: It's about a bunch of guys waving their dicks around. Sid: It is a story about a man's struggle with his own homosexuality. It is! That is what Top Gun is about, man. You've got Maverick, all right? He's on the edge, man. He's right on the fucking line, all right? And you've got Iceman, and all his crew. They're gay, they represent the gay man, all right? And they're saying, go, go the gay way, go the gay way. He could go both ways. Duane: What about Kelly McGillis? Sid: Kelly McGillis, she's heterosexuality. She's saying: no, no, no, no, no, no, go the normal way, play by the rules, go the normal way. They're saying no, go the gay way, be the gay way, go for the gay way, all right? That is what's going on throughout that whole movie... He goes to her house, all right? It looks like they're going to have sex, you know, they're just kind of sitting back, he's takin' a shower and everything. They don't have sex. He gets on the motorcycle, drives away. She's like, "What the fuck, what the fuck is going on here?" Next scene, next scene you see her, she's in the elevator, she is dressed like a guy. She's got the cap on, she's got the aviator glasses, she's wearing the same jacket that the Iceman wears. She is, okay, this is how I gotta get this guy, this guy's going towards the gay way, I gotta bring him back, I gotta bring him back from the gay way, so I'll do that through subterfuge, I'm gonna dress like a man. All right? That is how she approaches it. Okay, now let me just ask you - I'm gonna digress for two seconds here. I met this girl Amy here, she's like floating around here and everything. Now, she just got divorced, right? All right, but the REAL ending of the movie is when they fight the MIGs at the end, all right? Because he has passed over into the gay way. They are this gay fighting fucking force, all right? And they're beating the Russians, the gays are beating the Russians. And it's over, and they fucking land, and Iceman's been trying to get Maverick the entire time, and finally, he's got him, all right? And what is the last fucking line that they have together? They're all hugging and kissing and happy with each other, and Ice comes up to Maverick, and he says, "Man, you can ride my tail, anytime!" And what does Maverick say? "You can ride mine!" Swordfight! Swordfight! Fuckin' A, man!

Quentin Tarantino's famous 'Top Gun' speech was originally written by filmmaker and friend, Roger Avary, for another project. The "Top Gun" speech in Sleep with Me actually misquotes the real Top Gun script for intended humorous effect. Although Avary's speech claims that Iceman (Val Kilmer) says, "You can ride my tail any time" to Maverick (Tom Cruise) at the end of Top Gun, the character actually tells Maverick, "You can be my wingman any time."
