Quoting It's Lines For Years
11 June 2009 | by limabee69See all my reviews

I stumbled across this movie in a mom & pop 80's movie rental place. It was on the bottom shelf and being the crazy 20 something I picked it up. My girl and friends loved it so much that when the mom & pop closed and they sold off all their titles, I bought it (VHS). Still have it and every once in a while I'll pop it in for a chuckle. A buddy of mine and I still joke around quoting lines from it. The cop/lesbian(s)/duck scene is one of the all time favorites and is probably the cause for an earlier than normal demise of the late great John Wayne. I'm not much of a movie critic but I will say that this is one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. "You've been on my s$%t list for so long that I had to make a new s$%t list, you know, like private stock." "Duck's don't love America, they fly over it and leave big green kaka all over it. Why just the other day I was havin a drink of java and a duck flew over and left a duck terd in my coffee cup. Ducks love America." Crazzzzzzy!!
