Quotes

Maurice Dupont: [Talking to Rick Morgan] For ten years I've watched this nation divide itself into socialism against capitalism, tribalism against nationalism, father against son, brother against brother... The industrial nations, they send in *millions* of dollars, without understanding a *thing* about the Third World. They don't need a handout of money. They need expertise. People like you.

Got Thirsty During this Film
15 January 2006 | by whpratt1See all my reviews

Decided to view this film and had no idea if I was going to enjoy watching this story from beginning to end. The photography is fantastic and Robert Downey,Jr., (Jim Scott), "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang",'05, did an outstanding supporting role and was a so called friend of Billy Zane, (Rick Morgan), "The Last Drop",'05 but had a bad habit of getting him in all kinds of unpredictable situations. Billy Zane is a very hard drinking character who lives and breaths JACK DANIELS beverage for breakfast, noon and supper and also in between. Billy meets up with Lisa Collins, (Dr. Kim Woods),"Fix",'97, who starts out her relationship with Billy as only a professional doctor who looks for chemical energy readings. There is a scene where Kim Woods takes off her jeans because of an injury and poor Billy has to come to her aid. There is also another scene where Kim Woods is being attacked by a real evil guy and poor Billy again finds her in her bra, waiting for his assistance. This is rather comical at times and the acting is rather hot and cold, some action. and so much drinking, you begin to get Thirsty !
